This hotel is right in the centre of Jerusalem with all the sights being really accessible. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Food is served buffet style with plenty of variety and every taste and diet catered for with dishes always replenished when empty. The bar and lounge are comfortable. The only slightly negative point... More

I really enjoyed this hotel right in the heart of the muslim quarter in the old city. Nice rooms, good shower, decent breakfast and free coffee, tea and wifi in the reception area. I really felt at home here and was sorry to leave.

Staying here at the minute. Pretty clean & basic. Price is good compared to others. Owner Lutfy is helpful & will try an assist as much as possible. Free wifi but not greatest reliability or speed. Location is good near Damascus gate in old city

I stayed here on two occasions for six nights in May / June 2014 as part of a group, and I was pleasantly surprised. I had not stayed in the Old City before, and my preconceptions were such that I probably would not have if I had not been part of the group. It has been a long long time... More

The best thing about the hostel is location-very close to Damascus Gate so there is no need to carry the luggage more than 5 minutes along the narrow, crowded streets - and there you are in the middle of the Old City of Jerusalem. The hostel is clean and the staff is very friendly. They have 2- and 3-persons rooms... More

The Golden Gate Hostel was a great place to use as a home base. Our small group toured Jerusalem, then took side trips to Bethlehem and Hebron, staying at the Golden Gate 4 nights out of 9. The proprietor was kind enough to let us store our excess baggage there during our side trips so we didn't have to schlep... More

We stayed here for a week in February 2014. I can say that we had a nice experience in this hostel, except that our room have not been cleaned during our entire stay. Positive points: - The hostel is just 5 minutes walk from Damascus Gate, and about 2-3 minutes walk to Via Dolorosa. - So many stores around the... More

The place is clean and comfortable. There is a kitchen to cook and the breakfast is included. It is a good place to stay for visiting the old city, you are in ! The hostel is difficult to find the first time and after it is ok.

Stayed at Golden gate over the Christmas period and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff are incredibly welcoming and there is a homely feel to the place. The location is fantastic, just minutes away from damascus gate, in the heart of the old city. Awesome breakfast in the morning, very clean dorm room with an ensuite bathroom. I was really... More

It is a simple but clean and good hostel. The bed is confortable and the shower is warm. Great breakfast. One of the best locations and places to stay in jerusalem, once is inside the Old Town and as a better price than the other hostels. The bad thing is that is not possible to book on booking websites (like... More
