The location is great and I really liked the service. It's very busy with a lot of guests so sometimes you have to be patient and wait briefly at reception. But the reception staff is very efficient and helpful. Reserving quite a bit ahead is the best way to get a nice private room. In the hostel building and the... More

Israel is great, but its biggest flaws are inflated prices. The Jerusalem Hostel was the first one we styed in and it proved to be poor and inadequate to its price. Run- down, dirty, smelly and not pleasant to stay in. The wi- fi only in the corridor ( this is at least a good opportunity to meet other travellers:))... More

This place is reasonably priced, I stayed in a female dorm with bathroom and shower in the room and a bathroom in the hallway if our in room was being used. Its location is right in front of tram for 6.9 sheckles. for 1hr of travel. or 15min walk to Old Jerusalem. Its a lively location, (nice for the who... More

I stayed for 3 nights at the female dorm. When you share a doorm you can't demand much of luxury I know, but saw some of the private rooms, they seemed to me basic but neat, although not sure how much for it, I think from 260 NIS. Location is great, walking distance to the old city and plenty of... More

I have stayed for two nights in dorm bed room, which was filthy and smelly, and have been moved out to the hotel next door for more than double the price, but the room was cleaner even though small. The staff was very unprofessional, one advantage is the free use of the internet (they use an old newspaper as a... More

There was a street full of bars and cafes, and the hostel is in the heart of that street. If you want to go out at nights and than want to go back to your hostel easily like in 2 minutes this one is perfect. My friend and I stayed in a shared room for eight people. Lucky us there... More

From the outside this place looks beautiful. And the best is its location. Close to the old city, inside "the place" to eat and hang out.Walking distance from Mahane Yehuda as well, a market you can't miss, and around it you will find nice and trendy places to dine. I don't think it is a cheap place for a hostel.... More

First and foremost, their customer service is terrible, across the board. I'll only mention one anecdote, but the experience can be generalized. When we asked to arrange a shared taxi to the airport, they said to come back at 7pm because it was Shabat. They could just write our names down, and do the call at 7pm without us coming... More

Had a good stay here. I was in a cute single room, which i really liked. It was good value for money. The building has a lot of character, so i liked it a lot for that reason. There's a basic breakfast included in the price. It's also in a really good location in the centre of town, near all... More

We came for one night last week and it was really perfect for what we needed! There were 4 of us, and we got a room with a double bed, two single beds and a bathroom...what more did we need?! We got there late and the person who let us in was really very helpful and kind. In the morning... More
