  • The rooftop place is not good for sleeping. There is a party every night and if you want to go to sleep early, its impossible.

  • I give Florentine a high grade, even though the place is more like a youth garden than a hostel. I give it a high grade because the hostel manage to be leading a new style of social hosteling, meaning that if you're there the hostel itself is a space for social connections. You cannot avoid socializing. It is cool, if you want it chill and fun. However I lived at the hostel before and loved it, when coming back I could see that it is a youth garden, a lot of young drinking people having fun.

  • Great staff. Great balcony area that is good for socializing. Decent location - walking distance to Jaffa and the beach, as well as a grocery store. Free breakfast and towels. I stayed at both Overstay and Florentine while in Tel Aviv, and I definitely liked Florentine better.

  • this hostel is situated in a really strange neighborhood, as it is a bit out of the city center, on the other hand it is quite close to the old sea port and staff is great too :)

  • Very cool place to stay! Friendly, helpful hostel staff, personally involved owner, location of the hostel, good music and eclectically furnished terrace where you can meet the rest of guests cause you do not want to leave this place and definitely want to come back there;)
