Like for many persons residing at the hostel this week, this was a horrible experience. It is dirty, the manager is insane. He enters the people's rooms on mornings to wake them up. If you saw the movie guest house paradisio, well this is probably 3 times worse

Highly recommended!!! I really enjoyed in this place. Great location (close to the central market, to the sea, to all bars/restaurants) but quite street. There is small nice garden. Clean rooms, very friendly staff, home-atmosphere!

Beautiful building with high ceilings and a peaceful backyard to unwind in. The bathrooms, showers, and rooms are very clean. The staff is extremely friendly. This place feels like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling through Tel Aviv.
