People have to be aware that it is a SELF CHECK IN place. All the guests are responsible for getting themselves into their rooms, grabbing the bed sheets, etc. It's literally like you would do at your own house. There's no reception, even though the host is around. If you are okay with it, you will realize it's a perfect...

My first time in Tel Aviv but I felt instantly at home in the Chef Hostel as everyone was so friendly and helpful. There is a lovely common room and kitchen area to chill in! I also went on a fantastic pub crawl, organised by the hostel and discovered some cool places to party. I would definitely recommend this place!

This place was amazing. Super duper people, and an atmosphere to jump unto the ceiling! The carpets on the floor and the pictures on the walls, make this place feel like your home away from home. Or your second home. This is the place to live when you visit Tel Aviv, not only is it central and very close to...
