Hayarkon 48, Tel Aviv, Israel
The rooftop patio is a great little addition as well. Grab a drink and head to the rooftop at night where many other travellers hang out and share stories. Another great place to sit and watch the sun set over the beach.
We spent a few nights on the rooftop trading tips with other travellers and sharing stories.
Hayarkon 48 has daily activities happening should you want to join a pub crawl, have a cook off in the kitchen, or come up with your own ideas. Just jot it down on the communal board.
The beds are comfy, the wifi is good, and there is a pool table in the large common area. We read a few reviews complaining that Hayarkon 48 is noisy, but they provide free earplugs at the front desk. We used them and had very sound sleeps.
The staff is very helpful and friendly, and the many times we walked by the reception, guests were sitting, enjoying a drink and chatting with the staff.
Everything was in walking distance to the hostel, from Jaffa, to St. George St., to the many amazing restaurants we sampled.
We met a few people during our travels through Israel that were all familiar with Hayarkon 48 and they had nothing but good things to say about it.
Our stay at Hayarkon 48 was really good and we would recommend it to people wanting to be close to the beach and in walking distance to many areas in the city. It is very easy to get around with a bus stop just down the street from the hostel.
