Isla: The Cool New Hip Hostel in Central Tel Aviv

Isla Tel Aviv was born out of a family’s dream to create an affordable yet luxe getaway from the city. The brand new hostel, which is less than a month old, is located in the center of Tel Aviv on Montefiore street.

The family was inspired by the island of Koh Phangan and wanted to bring the experience to the bustling streets of Tel Aviv. The name “Isla” translates to the island, so you won’t have to go far to experience a slice of tropical hostel life in the city.

Here are a few reasons why you need to visit the first hostel in Tel Aviv to incorporate pods into their theme.

Work and Chill in their Common Area

Their common area is a great place to meet other like-minded travelers who are making their way around the city. They have a cafe where you can sample pastries they collect from a local bakeshop. If you get the chance to stay here, try out their almond croissant – it’s delicious. They also make tasty cappuccinos and even iced coffee. Did we mention there’s wifi?

Pod Rooms

Their rooms are unique because they’re similar to cubby holes, but with a spacious twist. You’ll have your own lighting options in your pod, and an outlet to plug in your laptops and phones. Also, the coolest perk about the pod is you can adjust the height of the bed – so you can sit up in your bed and read a nice book or just unwind after a long day of walking around the city.

Smiles Everywhere

The people who work at Isla are all friendly and amazing people who will accommodate all your needs. Need a cool daytime activity around the city? Simply ask the staff – they’ll be happy to recommend some cool spots around the city.
