This hostel is perfectly located right in the center of the old city. It's lovely settled in old building and has a great rooftop. On the other hand, the kitchen was extremely dirty and the shower in our room was broken.
Quite an amazing place to stay, right in the old city near to Jaffa Gate. the atmosphere and location makes it very attractive. Couldn't fault the staff, they were very helpful. A very pleasant week for me.
I was my self a hostel manager, and I must say that the management at Citadel Hostel is first rate. Polite, professional, prepared, absolutely helpful. Clean and quiet room, they have a fully equipped kitchen and a fully worth rooftop. Definitely, a place to go back to.
Beautiful old building, well cared for. Sweet atmosphere. Many chores done by volunteers. Kitchen available. Best roof in the world. Run by Christian Arabs. Great location. I keep going back there whenever in the city because I love it here.
This was definitely a cheap option but I wish I had a paid a little more and stayed elsewhere. We stayed in a room on the first floor. Soo much noise we didn't get sleep any of the days. Since it's a 2000 yr old building all the noise was magnified. Could hear so much noise from…

"Rooms on the opposite side of the rooftop are more private but further away"
