Although the hostel is very basic, it was a convenient place to stay for such a large group of students. It is not easy to find an affordable hostel for 40 people. Location is perfect and easy accessible by bus. A cute little bakery is just around the corner and is open 24/7, so it is really unnecessary to take...

As mentioned in other reviews, the management of this "hostel" prey on the weak, and provide the worst service I've ever had in my life. They try to appeal to (and take advantage of) Palestinian sympathizers by (WRONGLY) claiming that Israel does not allow them to use shekels (Israeli currency) because they are Palestinian, and, therefore, they have to charge...

This is a Palestinian ran hostel. The bottom floor is a produce market but the upper floors a bit cleaner. The room was three single size beds smashed together with a shower room that had a clogged drain. It did have a somewhat clean appearance. The free breakfast was not bad, hard boiled eggs, humus, salsa and bread. The free...

As a frequent traveller, this hostel is the worst so far. From the very first moment you walk into the reception you could tell what kind of hostel it is. The room was dark and filthy. The blanket and the mattress seemed never washed. I was put into a room with a guy who snored terribly. None of us in...

Being 100 meters from Damascus Gate and the light rail means old Jerusalem is right there and easy to access if your going to spend a lot of time in there. But the hostel itself is noisy (it sits above a small fruit & veggie market), no mirror in the bathroom kind of inconvenience , a few people there complianed...

We were supoosed to spend two nights here in a double room but they made overbooking and all the explanations were lies... The staff tried to be nice and polite but in fact they invited us to look for another place to stay... If you insisted that Jerusalem was fully booked (Easter season) they only could offer a coach or...

I enetered the reception and asked about the price, when a man at the receptoin desk looked at me and said, that it's very expensive, too expensive for me, and they are fully booked. I was normally dressed, clean and everything. Rude boor!

One of those moneymaking enterprises, with happy owners because Jerusalem beds mean money. 85 Dollars for a tiny room is of course ridiculous... It wasn't even ready to receive guests: no hooks to hang something, no cupboard, no bed lights, and a cess pit for bathroom. Avoid this place. There are better ones.

I was there in March for 2 days ... and two days too long. We booked private rooms for 10 people but unfortunately only 4 of us went to them rooms .. the rest was moved to dormitories! First night I spent with my friend with double bed room. The room was dirty and very cold. We had some rainfalls...
