Hostels are an affordable way to stay in Tel Aviv, and also a great place to meet new people. A bed in a dorm costs on average $25 per night, and a private room for couples costs on average $70 per night.

You can also book hotels directly in Israel and around the world through Secret Tel Aviv’s Platform, it will cost you the same, but you will be supporting the work we do at Secret Tel Aviv.
