Close to bars and restaurants, a bit noisy due to that - but bring youur earplugs and you will be fine. A wonderful top terrace where you can bring your wine and enjoy the view over Old Jaffa. Nice staff, the room was not very clean though.

Overall, the hostel makes a very friendly and open impression. The interiors are decorated with love and the staff is helpful and friendly. BUT: when we came into our room (a double room) we were shocked! There was only a small "window" to the stairway, which you could not fully close!!!!! So you could hear everybody walking and talking in...

Location was perfect: close to the port and beach, within walking distance to hip bars, restos, cafes & shops. The hostel was furnished with a vintage look. The staff was professional. The ensuite bathrooms were super small though. Would stay here again.

This was a pick on the part of a friend of mine. We wanted to sleep on the roof, but it was reserved for the rest of the month. The place has a rooftop coffee bar and kitchen with lots of couches and plants that make for a nice place to have conversation with other travelers. It also has a...

This hostel is a gem, very conveniently, placed smack bang in the middle of Jaffa. With a coffee bar on the roof, high ceilings and cozy decor, this comfy hostel makes you feel you are at home - complete with cat to sit on your lap in the living room :)

I loved staying at this hostel. You can tell there was a lot of love put into it over the years. It is located right next to the flea market and the old city, which is super convenient to walk everywhere. The hostel is in a beautiful old build, decorated with lots of antiques from the flea market. We slept...

Unfortunately I can not give this place a 0, but I would if I could. If you want to sleep, have a nice shower or a good breakfast, don't come here!! Sure the location is good and the terrace is nice, the stuff is kind. But it's impossible to sleep, you can hear everything happening on the street, you can...

We have came here numerous times since 2009, because this place is legendary and hilarious. This hostel is old, worn out, even broken, just add some paint and it will be fine. Rooms are all different and they are on many levels of the building, some bathrooms are smallest I've ever seen. Some have balcony, some barely a window. Some...
