“Nice and Central Hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

I stayed with 4 friends at the Chef Hostel. We were outside the hostel for most of the time for we left super confortable from the very first moment we walked in in the middle of the night.
Roy and his father were super helpful and gave us great direction in order not to get lost or not to miss anything important in Tel Aviv.
Will def come back to this hostel if ever back in TLV.

This hostel was great for the price. Nothing fancy, but perfectly clean and comfortable. The best part is the fantastic location- we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. Lots of nice bars and restaurants in the area, and the beach is about a 10 minute walk. Would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a inexpensive but nice stay.

The hostel is well-located - within walking distance to everything people usually need in Tel Aviv. The crowd was late twenties, early thirties. Lazy socializing took place, but this is not a party place. WiFi worked perfectly. Small fees seemed strange to me - you can bring your own beer/wine to the yard but pay an alcohol fee.

I arrived in Tel Aviv in the late evening, and called to ask if I could still check in. Luckily I was, and I made my way over there. It's pretty easy to find, except that there's no sign over the door so make sure you remember the address, because the number 19 is going to be your only indicator. You walk in and it looks at first like an apartment building, but if the door to the common room is open, then you'll realize you're in the right place.

It has a very relaxed atmosphere, and feels more like a shared house, than a hotel. This is what I like about hostels :) the reception is basically the kitchen table, and there's a shared kitchen and outside area. I stayed in a mixed dorm upstairs which was alright, cheap and all. Comfortable and there was hot water 24 hours. Some hickups with double bookings and stuff, but I guess it's what to be expected from a youth hostels from time to time haha it all got sorted in the end.

I stayed for three nights, and it was a cool place, I enjoyed it and I'd go back for sure. Recommend you stay there if you're a backpacker.

what is your expectation from any hostel?If it is best location, good people and all information what you could need, so Chef hostel - it is right choice. But most i love the private yard - full of flowers and cozy atmosphere - some time you can get there live music!
Enjoy!

The hostel is clean, nice, well located close to the beach and bars, the staf are very friendly and organize indoor and outdoor events. great experience for reasonable price! this place is great to meet people, as it has a common area with pool and a small stage, a bar outdoors ))
