I stayed in the Overstay hostel for 1 week and I had an amazing time. The people, that are working for the hostel are very kind and always there for helping you. At the rooftop is a bar with a great view, music and beer ;-) and downstairs there is a "chill area" to relax. Moreover is the hostel close to the beach (about 15 minutes walk). So if you want a great time, check out this hostel ;-)

We stayed at this hostel the first 2 nights we got to Israel. We were so tired we could have literally slept in a garbage bin. This was good enough for us. The prices in Tel Aviv are crazy and we were happy to start the trip with some cheap accommodations. When you research this hostel it’s exactly what they say it is. If you search the website they do not hide anything. If you are in ANY way high maintenance at all this is not for you. If you can rough it. This is perfect. Staff was great. Bed was good. Location was fantastic. We should stay here again.

This is just a really nice Hostel if you Are travelling on a budget. Everything is clean and the rooftopbar is a Highlight by itself. But the most amazing Part about the Hostel is the vibe. Every Time I went there, I met a lot of cool People and made new Friends. Also the staff is really friendly and always trying to help you. Especially Josh at the bar is doing an amazing Job. Will Come back for sure
