location,location, location. Great atmosphere and people!
I met so many different types of cool people that ill continue to keep in touch with. The fourteen person room is great for people who want to meet other travelers and make friends. The location is also super central, close to the beach, and bars, and allenby!
We enjoyed our one night stay at Chef Hostel. It was well located within a busy district offering lots of choices for eating and shopping. It had a 'family' atmosphere and the staff was very helpful.
Our internet contact said the hostel was within 10-20 minute walk from the train terminal. That is totally untrue. It would be a 40-45 minute fast walk. The only way from bus/train terminal is by taxi....not easy to get late at night which was the time of our arrival
Very central and very secure. No outsider is robbing this place as you have two security checkpoints and the border police right on the door. Old City architecture within and without the hostel makes for good atmosphere.
Take 'breakfast' with a pinch of salt (actually a pinch of salt is probably more substantial). It's a poece of bread, large bucket of hummus, tangerines. Free tea and coffee all day long more than makes up for it though
The place has a cosy common space, is made to interact and generates nice conversations. English & French are perfectly spoken. Chouchou, the dog, is also extremely friendly.
Very convivial and friendly. Great spirit. I tried several hostels in Tel-Aviv, and Chef Hostel is definitley the best.
I stayed just one night.
Cool staff, friendly Atmosphere Location, very close to Rotschild Blvd
WIFI in room was rather slow Rooms need some refurbishment
Great hostel with international but also familiar vibe // very central located! Many restaurants, bars and clubs around the corner. Carmel Market and beach just 5-10 min walk // staff was just brilliant, helpful and friendly at the same time - no matter what kind of question you have, they will help you // spacious and clean rooms/dorms... what more could one want?
Es gab keine Kritik.
Installations comfort cleanliness
Top location in the centre of Tel Aviv. 10-15 minutes walking distance to beach. Our (private) room was spacious, quiet, clean and secure. Nice backyard where you can sit, eat and chat with others. Very nice and extraordinarily helpful staff and owner. Familiar hostel atmosphere! Would definitely come back.
It is advisable not to be so stingy and provide free real coffee and milk!
Broken dusty aircon, broken shower.
I stayed in the 14-bed room. Sheets, shower and toilet were clean, good security, locking drawer available (use your own lock). What's great is how kind and helpful the Cohen family are, and how the hostel was a great place to come back to. It's in a central location, easy to reach by bus, with lots of nearby facilities and attractions, in one of Tel Aviv's oldest buildings.
everything was great. staff are cool to include shu-shu :), location is favorable. great to meet other travelers in there
- quite near to a supermarket (am.pm ) - not far away from beach - nice yard - you can book by yoursefl
- charge 4% extra paid by card, which is not indicated on booking.com - wifi was very weak in the private room - The private room's shower was not comfortable
Well located a few blocks from central Tel Aviv, 15 min from the beach, bus 4 from the central bus station. Kitchen a big bonus, very social with a spacious outdoor area. Great supermarket across the road. English spoken and information freely given, completely safe.
Shock of Tel Aviv prices, but this is Israel.
The mood! The Rosh Hashana "cooking party" with mix of Korean/French/Russian/Israeli cuisine. The advices at breakfast time to visit the city, the time spent discussing with other travelers. Great time!
location, all transport connections are close. Supermarket across the road, excellent kitchen. stayed there twice. first time was a bed in a shared room, enough place, slightly hot though. second time took a private room, pretty good, bed is okay, separate bath, AC is working 50/50, so please check it before arrival, as on summertime/autumn Israel is pretty hot place to stay. Special thanks to Felix, Roy and all the guys. Very friendly and international place. As a hostel - no doubts the best option.
price for private room may be high if you don't book in advance, but the accomodation in Israel is pretty expensive everywhere
Excellent location, very helpful and friendly staff, casual atmosphere.
This is a great place! Hostel was very clean (rooms and common areas), and it is in a great location in Tel Aviv. Staff and volunteers were very friendly and kind, and were happy to answer all my questions in helping me navigate around Tel Aviv. The rooms were comfortable and well-kept, and the outside sitting area is lovely, too! And, the hostel seems to attract great people -- all the other guests I met were very friendly, also. Highly recommended! I plan to stay here each time I return to Tel Aviv.
(nothing negative to say -- it is a great place to stay!)
As we arrived really late, we went to the hostel in the early morning. The staff gave us big hospitality to take a deep rest and told us to stay no matter when the official check out time is.
The reception was closed and locked at 1am and we couldnt access to anyone though the staff was actually in the reception while missing our calls. But afterward we came across the fact that he was waiting for us inside. Maybe there was a problem with his cellphone.
Supportive and Friendly family business, location, cleanliness, WiFi. They made me feel as though I was at home!! By all means, I would definitely recommend Chef Hostel Montefiore!!
Not the Hostel's fault - sometimes some people act a little rude.
The location is wonderful, 2 minutes from the City Centre, 10-15min from a beach if you take the Allenby street, a supermarket which works till 23.00 just around the corner, a 24hours supermarket 5 min away in the Shalom Tower. Cafes, bus stops to the Central Bus and Train Stations, change offices, everything is near. They clean the hostel every day, it's very clean. The hostel was a flat before, and all the interior is more like a flat, not typical hostel, you feel comfortable there. There is a kitchen with pots, kettle and cutlery, a hall with sofas and a TV, and a very nice terrace! There is a drawer in a dormitory with very small boxes in it, there are no lockers for them, so keep in mind: you can put only laptop and some small things into a box and you should bring your own small locker. But the most important is the manager of this hostel - Roy! He's a cool guy! I was alone in my 5beds dormitory but I never felt bored or lonely. Almost every evening he tried to create some activities: walking around the district or going to clubs and pubs....that was really cool, many thanks to him! So Roy will treat you like an old friend and help in your self-made trip with his tips. There are only two showers and three toilets. There is no hairdryer.
I slept in 5beds dormitory room, and the window faced another building, there were lots of conditioners in the wall, which worked all days and nights, so better to take earplugs with you.
I stayed at the apartment with one bedroom. Very clean, quiet (didn't hear a thing although the room was next to the patio!). The very best part of the experience was the manager of the hostel, making sure I was happy with my stay. The one-bedroom apartment is a great alternqtive to the very expensive Tel Aviv hotels. I got bot the privacy of a hotel room and the social life of a hostel all rather inexpensively!
