It used to be my favourite hostel in Tel Aviv. But it has gone down the drain. The room with bathroom cost me €82 (325 shekels). No toilet seat on the bowl. No hot water. Somewhat mouldy shower. No furniture in the room, other than the bed and one chair. The girls at the desk were friendly and tried to be helpful, but they really didn't know what they were doing. On the day that I was going to check in, they called me at about noon, to tell me that I needed to check out!! Then, when I did check in, the key they gave me didn't open the door; in fact, it opened the door to another room, which was occupied!! One gets the feeling that the place is on the verge of bankruptcy. I wouldn't have minded staying there, as much, had the price been realistic!!!
Don't book this hostel or Golden Beach Hotel (same owner). I paid by card when I checked in and the charged me automatically twice when I checked out. I wrote them an Email but they never replied. Now I understood why the staff was very nice, they charged me a big tip ...
Horrible experience the last day of the year! I have made a reservation in this hostel by Hostelsclub for one night on 31st December 2019 per 20€ (5€ prepaid) My surprise was when I have arrived...and they said me that they doesn't know this web and hasn't the reservation...( in my opinion they were overbooked...)...I tried to contact with the webside, and nobody helped me! Finally, they had a cancellation ans they offer me a private-room per 120€!!!( 5 times more my teservation!!!).This wasn't honesty!! I will never back here...and use this webside....Horrible experience alone in the city with all places fully booked!!
I can surely recommend this hostel. Environment was clean and the room was reasonable. The clerk at the front desk gave us recommendations for restaurants , museums and even the great walking tours. A bit noisy but not more than expected, There's no free parking in the area. A good starting point for getting to see Telaviv. Try the local street food in the area.
I would highly recommend this hostel to everyone. I was staying there for 14 days and by the end of it I felt like part of their community. The beds are comfortable, staff (including volunteers - special shout out to Daniel from Straya who is a soul of every party) is extremely nice and welcoming, not to mention the location. Celebrating New Years eve on the top of the hostel was also incredibly fun :) I cant wait to get there in summer and experience real Tel Aviv ;)
Terrible place, noisy, not so clean, chaotic not even a proper cover for "blanket"....no space to lock your stuff in a room. Maybe for people who dont give a ^#%$#$^ about anything its gonna be ok....i get a back packing lifestyle...but in a city like Tel Aviv you could expect at least minimum standart provided. Dont save money... pay some 30NIS more and be satisfied. Ahhh and the breakfast is not even a breakfast its a hilarious looking 4 bowls of some S$%^$%. Ahh by the way... The only positive thing... not a thing ...a persons 2 nice polite and friendly girls on the reception desk. Hello to the dark haired tall beautiful girl :) Sorry.... for the honest opinion
· -Location! Very central, the beach is walking distance, and you can really enjoy nearby markets and restaurants -Friendly staff (they even print my boarding pass for the early flight) -Nice breakfast with a great options for this kind of stay -No issues with wifi
This hostel used to be the best and best value for your money. Today it's simply not worth the prices they charge. Way too high. Reception doesn't even want to answer calls anymore either.. called 4 days in a row.. tens of times and when I was answered they told me I couldn't book direct. Poor service.. exaggerated prices
When I booked our stay I misread the word hostel and thought it said hotel. That could’ve been a problem where it not for the fact that I had the most amazing fun time at this hostel with such a generous, kind and welcoming community of people who was such fun and were such a joy to be around. I have been to hostels before, but the way this one is run is so relaxed and easy-going. The Friday night Shabbat dinner I found genuinely moving by being included in a Jewish festival when I’m not Jewish and this is an experience I would never have had at a hotel. The facilities are simple but adequate, I slept really well every night was never woken up, the bed was comfortable and clean the toilets flushed with paper and poo… that is a sign of quality! There is Wi-Fi and the comedy events and drinks on the roof are hilarious. On behalf of David and I -We want to say thank you! …
Our stay at HaYarkon was fantastic. We met the most welcoming, generous and fun people - both staff and guests. The location is really close to the beach which is perfect for watching the sunset. It is also near the market and bars too! They have everything that you need at the hostel and gave some great recommends too. We didn’t want to leave and that is all thanks to the amazing manager Lidor and the beautiful staff!! We will miss you!!
