11 April 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was in a very good location in the centre of Tel Aviv. Almost all of the staff on the desk were really helpful, giving me advice on restaurants, travel around Israel, and booking my next hostel for me. The rooftop terrace was nice, shame I only found it on my last day. The big breakfast was great. Towels were provided and changed every day, much better than using my travel towel!

Disliked: It was quite noisy because it was on a main street and Israeli drivers like to beep their horns a lot(!), but if you take some earplugs then you should be ok. I had a light above my bed, but it would have been nice for the other four people in the room if they'd had them too. One of the lights in the toilets didn't work while I was there (though I suppose I could have reported it, and didn't). I wonder if it might get quite warm in rather small rooms with five people later in the year, during summer. Lockers in the rooms would be an improvement.

Liked: The people who work at the hostel are some of the most friendly you'll find. The free breakfast is also incredible. All you can eat, and there are plenty of pastries and fresh orange juice to give you energy for the day.

Disliked: Daniel left no negative feedback.

Liked: Staff is very friendly and userful. A lot of shops around.

Disliked: The location on the hostelbookers.com' map is WRONG -- right location can be found by searching by address on google maps. The staff asked us to pay the whole amount, without taking into account the pre-payment to hostelbookers. He said that this pre-payment will return to the card. But now I see that that pre-payment is finnally authorized, not "pending", so it definitely do not be returned. Moreover, the payment amount is $-86.28 instead of USD 67.32 noted in the confirmation from the hostel (!). The payment amount is larger than the "Total 54.96 EUR" = approx. 76 USD i.e. withour taking into account the pre-payment.

Liked: Convenient central location, near the beach. One of the cheapest options in central Tel Aviv with included breakfast.

Disliked: Breakfast is unvaried with lot of pastries. Dirty and inconvenient toilets and showers on the 2nd floor. Deposit left with Hostelbookers is not enough garanty for hostel, they hold the amount of 1-night stay at your card. Price quoted in US dollars will be charged in shekels wth unfavourable rate of exchange. Better to pay with US-dollar cash or book somewhere else where you would be quoted in local currency.

Liked: The breakfast was the best that I had at any hostel and close to the best of my entire stay in Israel. 15 dishes to choose from, just great.

Disliked: There was no locker in the room, and the room was a bit on the small claustrophoibc side.

Liked: The staff were helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Single room was clean but marks and dirty walls everywhere. Light fittings unsecured, smoke detector covered. TV, but no idea how to make it work. A/C controller seemed to control a light. Showers hot and cold every five minutes. Communal toilets tiny. Tired, broken tiles. Breakfast was interesting...I'm not sure if it was traditional Israeli, but didn't seem at all popular, judging by how much was left over. Continental would serve better for travellers unused to pitta bread and spicy something AM. Very expensive as well for single room....in Jerusalem, get something ensuite, 100 times better for less.

Liked: Plus side is the staff were great and not rude unlike the other outside services(ie like some car rental company called E!d@n) in Israel. Chef was great.. cooked a simple delicious and sumptous breaky. He also doubles up as car park attendent, bell boy etc . Incredibly helpful but when you finished your breaky, remember to take your plates to the kitchen sink otherwise he gets sweetly grumpy. Hell of a character..lol

Disliked: The toilets weren't clean more like a public toilet than a hotel loo. Maybe to help the image of the place, a more regular check would be nice. It looked clean on the website but a bit older and tatty.
