First time in Palestine and I would recommend the House of Peace to anyone looking for a place to stay in Bethlehem. Daniel and his family were awesome and super helpful. They made me feel like family and I'll definitely being going back for a visit next time I'm in Palestine.

The hostel is a bit hard to find in Bethlehem, but once you are there it is really like being part of the family there. Everything is clean and the price of 50 Shekels is absolutely appropriate. The owners son offers tours to different locations in the Westbank. I did not take one myself but talking with him about various political and social topics of Palestinian life he proved to know a lot about those issues. Whenever I will be back to Bethlehem, I will certainly stay there again.

House of Peace guest house has been a nice stop on our journey. It's a little bit away from all the touristic fuzz, which is a pleasant change once you've had enough of it. The family running the business is super friendly and helpful.

Warm welcome very clean but in January it’s cold. They provide a gas fire we could use in the evening but obviously not overnight. Water wasn’t warm enough to have a shower. Maybe we were last In the queue? For those that like guided tours you can have different guided tours done by a son of the family.
