Which hostel location is better?

by Dave_2006

Hello my good friends at VT!. I need to find a good well located hostel in Tel Aviv. I came across two I like:

The Gordon Inn and The Old Jaffa Hostel. I was looking for something more centrally located with shops, people, beach, restauraunt, markets, downtown, the centre of the city. The gordon Inn seems to be the best although the Old Jaffa Hostel seems to have a very nice mystique about it but seems to be far away from the centre of the city on Amiad street?.

Let me know your thoughts...Jaffa seems nice but far from the downtown

gordon inn is gfairly expensive and not really a hostel.
there used to be a gordon hostel but it byrned down a few years ago.

old jaffa hostel has a good location, but it's not right on the beach.
it will take you around 10 minutes to walk to the beach from there.

i personally like momos hostel in central tel aviv.
it's a fairly simple place, but it's cheap and located right in the middle of the action.

Hello!

Both of these hostels have good locations, but in different parts of the city.
Both of them are 8-10 min walk from the beach promenade.
The Old Jaffa hostel is right in the center of Jaffa, the old nucleus of the Arab city, now a mixed Arab-Jewish area. It's close to the flea market, the art galleries of old Jaffa, and the Neve-Tzedek neighborhood.
The Gordon Inn is on Ben Yehusa St, one of the main streets of Tel-Aviv, nearer to the nicer beaches.
Bus # 10 actually connects these 2 areas, and will also take you to other interesting parts of the city.
Enjoy Tel-Aviv, it's a great city!

Thanks for your comments!

One last thing, what do you think about Subkuchmilega Hostel 22 Hamashbir St. Tel-Aviv...is that close to the centre of the city/beach/buses/shops and is it a good neighbourhood?

Re: Which hostel location is better?

by iblatt

Hi Dave,
Hamashbir St. is not far from the central bus station of Tel-Aviv, and near Allenby St., which is a main commercial street; you can get buses to everywhere from there, but it's definitely NOT a good area or a pleasant area to walk. It's quite far from the beach (30 min walking).

I stayed in HaYarkon 48 (I think it was) for two nights - it depends if you're a seasoned hostel stayer. It was clean and simple and well located to the CBD. They have a website.

In saying that I am not a hostel person and chose not to stay in any more hostels in my time in Israel instead picking midrange hotels such as the Dan Hotel chain in Haifa/Tel Aviv/Jerusalem.

Good luck.

Travel Tips for Tel Aviv-Yafo

Jaffa in General

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Yafo (Jaffa Hill) rises to a height of 40 meters and offers a commanding view of the coastline. Hence its strategic importance in military history. Jaffa is an ancient port city believed to be one of the oldest in the world. Jaffa was captured during the Crusades, and became the County of Jaffa and Ascalon, one of the vassals of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Jaffa is now a part of Tel Aviv.
There are several legends about the origin of the name Jaffa. Some say it is named for Japheth, one of the sons of Noah, who built it after the Great Flood. The Hellenist tradition links the name to "Iopeia", which is Cassiopeia, the mother of Andromeda.

Old Harbour

by Carmela71

It is full of restaurants and bars, to sit and relax.

In my opinion it is much better to visit it at night than during the day.

We had a great dinner here on our first night. Sharon took as here to try the Hummusssssssssssss and great fish dishes ....

One of the greatest thing in...

by Sharon

One of the greatest thing in our little country is all the restaurants and cafe's on the beach. We can almost call it a 'culture'... its great to be sitting in a good restaurant and look at the sea or in a small restaurants having a good beer/wine and listening to a great and different kinds of music.

Independence Day in Tel Aviv - Having Fun!

by Jackiekg

A couple of days ago, 7th May to be precise, Israel celebrated its 55th birthday. The celebration actually started on the eve of the 7th May, right after a day of mourning for Israel's Fallen. Of course it is difficult to go from a sad day to a happy one, but that's how it is here.
My photo shows part of what went on in Rabin Square, which is in front of the Tel Aviv Municipality on Ibn Gvirol Street. My friends and I were there in time to see a show, which included dancers and some well-known Israeli singers and groups. The music could be heard for quite a distance and I imagine the neighbours didn't have quiet till at least 2am-3am! Later we walked over to the New Performing Arts Centre, about ten minutes away, where there was a sing along and folk-dancing, the latter of which I joined in. About 1am we left the celebrations to walk home, after a very nice evening.

Don't miss the beach!

by navaros

Tel Aviv-Yafo has been granted with 14 kilometers of seaside. During the hot summer months the beach attracts thousands of bathers, who enjoy the cool escape granted by the seawater, sun bathing and different beach games. o not forget a hat... And be aware to play ping pong and other ball's games only on the mark areas.
