Hotel Josef hostel- tel Aviv Israel 1989. Does anyone remember this hostel? I was travelling in Israel in 1989 and fondly remember spending many a great night at the hostel. The graffitti covered walls, super staff, fantastic atmosphere. Alas it is no longer there. What is the best hostel you have ever visited?

I would say Pittwater hostel in a bush setting north of Sydney in Australia. It has the most beautiful setting with amazing views over the inlet below. It has a comfortable balcony to sit out on a see the native wildlife. The birds are regular visitors in particular. Two little boys were having toast for breakfast when two white cockatoos stole it from their hands. I saw a friendly little possum in the evening. It had canoes available for guests and I went with another girl in one across the inlet. It was a hot day so we were wearing swimming costumes. It was lovely and warm going over there but the weather changed coming back. the water got quite choppy and the air temperature went lower. For safety we went round the edge rather the middle.
