About Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv is the biggest city in Israel and has a reputation of an open-minded, indulgent metropolis to which migrants flock in search of a new life. One local has described his city to us as the "New York of Israel.". Indeed, Tel Aviv, much like New York, does not have one clearly defined city centre and boasts a line of skyscrapers that can be observed from a distance reflecting the sun and decorating the city’s coastline.
Adjacent to Tel Aviv is the ancient port town of Jaffa, nowadays a picturesque suburb containing a well-known flea market, art galleries, and relatively inexpensive restaurants. Jaffa is a couple of kilometers south from downtown Tel Aviv and can be reached via the beach promenade on foot or by bicycle as well as via a regular road by motorized transport.
Much of the Tel Aviv’s hostels are situated a block or two away from the waterfront. There are beaches all along the coastline, so it does not matter much how north or south your hostel is. Some budget accommodation is also offered at the rather rough Florentine neighborhood. An advantage of the latter is its relevant proximity to the city’s central bus terminal and the HaHaganna train station. Those longing for charms of a quaint historical neighborhood always have an option to stay at one of the Old Jaffa’s hostels.
Although it has a fair amount of "serious" tourist attractions like the excellent Museum of Art, Tel Aviv is known among the ordinary visitors as the city for nightlife, beach life, shopping, fun, bars, and cafes. It is the economic center of Israel as well as the place for cool arts and designs, and for the secular culture. Most of foreign embassies for Israel are also situated here.
Ben Gurion Airport, through which many foreign visitors enter and leave the country, is a short and cheap train ride away. There are three train stations in Tel Aviv: Merkaz, HaShalom and HaHaganna, so make sure you pick the right closest to your Tel Aviv hostel.

Tel Aviv Beachfront Hostel
"My favorite hostel in Tel Aviv - This place is amazing. It's right on the beach, chill atmosphere, friendly staff, and clean rooms. I stayed in a triple, the room was tiny! But, the location was perfect, it's not the closest to traditional night spots, but a quick taxi will get you most places, or even taking a bike share, or even walking. It was quiet when I was here, which was nice, I'd say book in advance, during the high season, also the...

"Great Staff, Location, Room - I'm a very picky, spoiled girl. I decided to extend my Birthright trip and stay on my own in Tel Aviv for a week.

Tel Aviv Travel Tips & Suggestions
I just had the time of my life on The Tel Aviv pub crawl! My Tel Aviv trip wouldn't be the same without it.
— Jack Oneill
I lived in Israel for two years and went back for another two years. Tel Aviv has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. It was a party that never stopped and was great to find work and relax on the beaches.
— "ROBBY" Deborah RobinsonAnonymous
I lived in Tel Aviv from 1992 to 1994 -- got a great job within days and got great friends within hours. I loved it so much I almost became Jewish!
— Ian from plymouth uk
I just love Tel Aviv! I lived there off and on for about four years -- last time was '97 to '99. What a great city, great people, and food. It took a while, I but found a great job with a textile company in Yehud.
— Hill from California
I love Israel, including Tel Aviv. I've lived at a kibbutz for two years, and I love all the people from that country. They aren't like news make them look like. In June I'll come back for a week, in my holidays, to visit my favourite country again.
— Maria from Spain
It's a great place -- I loved it.
The first time I absolutely fell in love with Tel-Aviv so much that I wanted to return and find a job. The second time was terrible. Don't do it if you haven't got enough money and if you're not Jewish. No chance finding a job and staying there long.
I love Israel, but there is a special place you have to see -- Tel-Aviv! It´s such a great city with so many attractions and so much to see. I am going back next week, and I just can´t wait. The weather is great. The food is brilliant, and the citizens are so open-minded people -- you´ll find lots of friends! I love it.
I love Israel, Tel Aviv especially! Everything is here -- beautiful Jaffa, nightlife, markets, culture, beaches, sunny weather, shopping, and best of all -- Israelis.
— Nathalie from Holland
I love Tel Aviv, it's so buzzy and the people are fun! The beaches are great, the nightlife is fab, it's like London but by the sea! Always something going on. I love this great city, can't wait to go back...
I lived here from 1994 until 1999 and loved it. I got work from hostels and I will get back in 2006 fore 8 more years. Tel Aviv RULES.
— ace from holland
Tel-Aviv is great, it's a fun place full of friendly, beautiful girls and the best beef shwarma on the planet.
— John O'Connor
First off, this City never sleeps, if you love New York or Toronto Canada where I am from, you will love Tel-Aviv. The night life is incredible here and the people are really cool. The beach is beautiful the food and cafes are all good. If you come to Israel you have to spend a few days in Tel-Aviv first.
— Joshua Toronto Canada
I lived in Tel Aviv for 8 years. It is a fantastic city with brilliant nightlife and loads to do. The "City that never sleeps" says it all I think. A haven for backpackers.
Come to Tel-Aviv, it's a very cool place. Lovely beaches, good food, and friendly people. Don't be put off, it's fantastic here.
