In the center of Tel Aviv, just a 2-minute walk from the beach, the Hayarkon 48 Hostel has simply furnished rooms and dormitories. Guests will appreciate the free Wi-Fi and 24-hour front desk.

location , the staff , nice place to stay in Tel Aviv
This hostel is great for a stay in Tel Aviv. I've been here twice and will definitely stay here again when I will be in Tel Aviv. Especially when you travel alone and you want to feel welcome and meet people, this is the place. The hostel organizes dinners in the beautiful garden (including music) and pub crawls. You can always join. I once arrived late and the crawl already started. The owner came to pick me up, so I could join. Great place, without a doubt.
The backyard was amazing. Can't wait to get back here in summer to enjoy the space and interact with other travellers.
Location good. Near Camrel Market and not too far from the beach
Dirty room, broken shower, no light in bathroom, dirty living area and unfriendly staff!!!
Ron is a really good guy-i came here on my first day to Israel and he took the time (45 min) to help me develop a plan on what I should do and even described the history of some sights. The hostel itself is in the best location-close to bars and the bus!
Entering the hostel felt like entering a living room. I met very nice people, and was sorry to stay only for one night - next time I'm in Tel Aviv, I'll definitely stay at Chef Hostel again!
Everything good in this little family run hostel. Location is great and owners are really friendly. Truly recommended
I stayed here just for one night but everything was good. Friendly staff, I really liked the location. The price is also really good, probably one of the best places in Tel Aviv for the value of your money.
Chill atmosphere. Extremely helpful and welcoming staff.
Value for money hostel located near some of the coolest places in Tel Aviv. Its clean, cozy and there are usually a lot of guests roaming around so you can always meet new people. Cool back yard to chill and barbecue. Even with the price without discount, it's worth it, due to better location and conditions, when compared to other hostels in Tel Aviv. Make sure to book online. You most likely wont get the discount if you go directly.
The price displayed on the website is a discount and its only valid for one night. If you want to stay more than one night be prepared to pay more.
+ room (dorm) is warm, even in the winter + enough electric sockets next to the beds. + clean! + nice kitchen, nice living room, great outdoor terrace + good wifi + good bunk beds for a hostel, relatively spacious dorm + possibility to walk to Tel Aviv HaHagana Railway Station (20 minutes) and Tel Aviv New Central Bus Station (convenient to get to the airport and anywhere else) + possibility to walk to the beach (20 minutes) + friendly + caring staff, for example "getting around" information including map given without need to ask
- no possibility to hang cloth / towel in the shower room
Probably for party-hostel is very good and easy to meet people from every where in the world. As a place to stay to relax and sleep is not recommendable. However my experice was short only one night.
i paid for a single (sharing bath) private room E34 (4% cc charge) once i arrived in the hostel the guy in the hostel reminded me a couple of times even by writting that i got a big discount and the room is usually double price... the room was 3x2, short bed and just a sheet as cover. i had to leave the room at 3 am to get a flight and couldn't sleep bc there was a kind of party until 1:00 am (it was sunday which in Israel is like a Monday for Europe).
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.
