We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights in December (the third night we changed).
The position is very good, and from the roof the view on the old city is great.
Also the WiFi worked well on the ground floor.
We had a double...More
We were in Jerusalem on a holiday week so accommodation was slim but we were happy to stay at Citadel and it compared favorably to other Jerusalem hostels we had stayed at. Location was great, close to Jaffa Gate. Staff were informative. Accommodation was standard...More
Yes, it is a tad overcrowded. However, the decor, along with the design of the building makes it all rather cosy and comfortable. The staff are helpful and the atmosphere is social. The location is excellent, though being the old town, the hostel can be...More

I stayed in one of the double private rooms... the one on first floor in the back. The room wasn't too much bigger than the bed, but had a dresser and room to store our packs as well. One window that opens and also let's in a good ammount of light. The bathroom was right outside the room though, not inside. The room door locked, so we didn't have a problem leaving our things in there - though the only expensive things I brought with me were my computer and camera, and the camera came with me literally everywhere.
Side note... it's a no-brainer for most travelers in hostels, but don't leave your passport anywhere, even locked up. I had a specific pair of travel pants with a front zipper pocket and an rfid travel pouch that I kept my credit card and passport in, along with extra cash. Then kept other cash in a seperate place... pickpockets are rampant throughout David Street (the main market) and Jaffa Gate!
