Right in the beautiful heart of Tel Aviv, seven people are sharing a classic 5-bedroom Bauhaus apartment, forming the CityTree Urban Ecology Community. You're welcome to stay in our unique flat, in your own intimate room.

You will be staying in a comfortable little room, which has a double futon. Staying with us, you'll get to know us, and our special way of living.
We practice sustainability and sharing, in the beating heart of the city.
The food in our kitchen is included in the price! It's always stacked with delicious fresh produce straight from our organic farmer friends, including tasty seasonal fruits. We especially recommend trying out a fruit salad for breakfast! When Tami Zori, the community founder (with seven years of experience in teaching vegan & raw-vegan workshops), has some time, she'd be delighted to teach you how to make the best Israeli raw breakfast!
The room fits one person, or a couple, comfortably.
You're welcome to participate in our various workshops -- how to make healthy chocolate, how to cook tasty vegan food, how to make your own natural cosmetics, and more.

Note there's no air conditioning, as it is very bad for the environment. Every room has a ceiling fan. During winter, you'll have a radiator to be warm & cozy in your room.
You will have access to:
- Two bathrooms and showers. The bathrooms are flushed using recycled water in buckets.
- You can use all of our flat - our living room, three more spacious bedrooms, two beautiful balconies, and the rooftop
- Free & unlimited Wifi
- Clean & fresh towels and linen
- All of the fresh vegan food in our kitchen - mostly organic!
- Washer

CityTree is the best-established urban ecology community in Israel. Should this interest you, we'll be very happy to share our experience of forming and maintaining an urban eco-community, some hundreds-members strong; of creating a shared living space of six to eight people at a time.
We can share tips on exploring Tel Aviv, helping with buses & trains, and anything that has to do with the flat.
Of course, should you prefer, you can have your privacy in your room.

Note that in order to conserve drinking water, we usually flush our toilets using buckets of grey (recycled) water, which is a bit surprising at first.

All of us, guests included, sleep on thick roll-out futon mattresses, not on beds.

- The house is vegan; please don't bring any meat, milk, eggs, or products thereof in the house.
- There's no smoking in the house; you're free to smoke in the pleasant plaza under our house.
- Dogs are sadly not welcome, as we have a cat.
- Generally speaking, we go to sleep quite early, at about 10PM-midnight. Of course, you're free to adhere to your own schedule; but please keep mind to keep the place quiet after 10.

About the Area

We live at the the very heart of historic Tel Aviv, on top of the charming and serene Bialik Plaza. Staying in this area, you'll be able to experience the best the city has to offer, all within a short walking distance:
- 10 minutes walk to the beach
- 3 minutes walk to the Carmel Market
- 5 minutes walk to Dizengoff Center
- 2 minutes walk to Gan Meir Park
- 10 minutes walk from a great yoga studio, offering FREE yoga classes!
The main attraction is just wandering the old streets, watching the many houses built in the Bauhaus (International) style in the 20s & 30s, and appreciating that special middle-eastern vibe that makes our city stand out.
Naturally, all around us you will find many cafes, restaurants, pubs and anything your heart desires.

    Great Location, nice People, enjoyed daily my Müsli on the rooftop. But: Need ohropax and a good sleep because the room-door is not tighly close. And you should be aquainted with economic Ideas and simple configuration of the room/bathroom.

    A little unorthodox, but nonetheless enjoyable. We had two great sleeps!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
