“Oh well, it was only one night”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Although I took a room 'with private bathroom' (which was really a closet with a WC and a shower tray), the Sky is a hostel, not a hotel, so it's not fair to expect more than the basics. But just the basics would be fine, if a place is reasonably pleasant and cared for. The Sky, on the other hand, looks like they seeing how little they can actually spend on the joint before they close it down (or maybe it will just fall down). I couldn't really say how clean the room actually was, because everything was just so old, shabby and tatty. By any yardstick it's the most decrepit place that I've stayed in for many years, across five continents. But in the interests of balance, two positive things. Firstly, the location, just two streets back from the beach front. Second, the staff were quite helpful. But I'm astonished that some people rate the Sky as VG or even Excellent. Really?? If that's indeed a reflection of what you can expect from hotels and hostels in Tel Aviv, I'm just glad I only had one night to spend in the city.

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and it was quite nice. Rooms and toilets were clean. Security is no issue. And the staff is friendly. Too cheap to have all of them. In fact, a friend of mine stayed in an expensive hotel but the service was really poor.

I stayed here for a few nights in a private room and it's definitely a place I would recommend if you just need the basics to be content. The location is the biggest plus as it is near the main market, shopping centers, and the city's central places, not to mention the beach! They have warm water and windows that allow fresh air into the rooms.

I've stayed at the Sky Hostel in Tel Aviv several times during the last summer.

The rooms are clean, good size and very comfortable. The prices are the best you will be to find in expensive Tel Aviv.
Service is very good. They also provided cake and coffee in the morning. In the lobby you can meet people from around the world and I created a lot of interesting friends. The WIfI is pretty good.
If I could I would have stay longer than planned for sure.

The location is great, Right in the heart of the city. The Beach's are 2 minutes walk, the shops and restaurants are 5 minutes walk. The noise form the street can be sometimes to noise but what you can do when you stay in the most popular street in Tel aviv...
Wonderful place for singles or couples
The next time I'll visit Israel again I'ill definitely stay in Sky hostel again.

From the first minute I arrived to Sky hostel I saw what my friend was telling me
about. The place was very nice and inviting, The receptionists were very pleasant and explained all what I needed to know about Tel Aviv… (They provide you a map of the city and tell you were to go and what to do in Tel-Aviv).

The room I got was clean and big enough for a couple. Over all I can say that I enjoyed at sky hostel very much)) The room, the lobby, the big roof top and the general atmosphere was excellent and made my vacation!!
If I'll come again to Tel Aviv again I would definitely stay there again.
Highly recommend the place!!!

+ Was in Israel in Nov 2012 - in the midst of Operation Pillar of Defense. +

* Checked into the Sky Hostel, for about 5 days.Not difficult to find place.Close to the
Carmel Market & walking distance to the Tel Aviv beach.
* Friendly receptionist & helpful.
* Has free internet wifi ( Whew !)
* Free breakfast - I think can have afew more varieties of "buns" though.
* Walking distance to shops & it's low budget place to stay in.

Overall, it's a small place but clean to bunk the night.
