Are there any nice hostels in Tel Aviv?
Carol, Try this..... www.hihostels.com/dba/country-Israel-IL.en.htm I've never stayed there, but have found that the facilities at HI Hostels are quite consistent from one property to the next and they're well managed. You could try posting this question on the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree board, as they have a larger user base. Happy travels!
The busiest online Israel forum seems to be on Trip Advisor, so look there as well: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g293977-i1733-Israel.html
