Through the centuries Jaffa was the gate to anyone who wanted to visit the Holy Land. All the hotels that once accommodated pilgrims are long closed and the old port serves nowadays only fishermen. Yet, Jaffa is still a great place to start your trip to Israel, and Old Jaffa Hostel & Guest House is an ideal traveling base. We are located in an old charming building close enough to anything you want in Tel Aviv.
We think that it is the nicest hostel in Tel-Aviv because we have put our heart and soul into it . We are not the only ones to think so; read what some of the guidebooks (we are recommended in any single book for Israel) write about us:
“LET’S GO”-guide gave us the “particularly great” mark for being:”…a wonderful escape from the hostels that cover Tel-Aviv beaches. It really manages to feel like Israel.”
LONELY PLANET: “a pleasant Israeli couple have converted a beautiful old Turkish house into the lovely Old Jaffa Hostel.”
THE ROUGH GUIDE:” …excellent, well run…”
REISE-KNOW-HOW:”very clean, friendly and helpful, very good atmosphere…” The British “Independent” had an article on Tel-Aviv on 31.Oct.1999 and recomended 4 options for accomodation: The Hilton, two three star Hotels and the Old Jaffa Hostel.
