Excellent localization, excellent Shabat Dinner, excellent infra structure, and excellent in all aspects regarding a hostel. I strongly recommend staying on this hostel in a travel to Jerusalem. Very close to Mamilla St and to Jaffa Gate.

The Beit Shmuel House located near the King David Hotel and the YMCA in Jerusalem serve multiple functions: it is a pleasant, small non expensive Hotel with a garden and a magnificent view of Jerusalem from its terrace. It is also a cultural meeting place where Lectures, Music and Theater performances take place frequently and recently opened a cinema for... More

Poor cleanliness. It was very dirty and they did not clean. I felt very bad. Has an amazing location but the service and Cleanliness are worst than bad. They did not care about that. Is located close to Manilla Center and yaffo Port (old city)

My lady and I were told about Beit Shmuel by a friend to whom we now owe a debt -- or a good dinner. We had a hostel room that would accommodate, I think, six. No frills. Very comfortable -- ours had a postcard view of the old city. No pool -- who needs it? No spa -- So what?... More

Essentially a youth hostel, noisy and a bit grimy. Good breakfast, very well located. A group of teens may love this but was not for our family. We tried to move elsewhere on the last night but they refused to refund money. They did give us better hotel styled room that was much cleaner but still very very noisy as... More

We have just returned from spending a weekend in Jerusalem with my children and grandchildren staying at this place. The rooms were clean and bright. The breakfasts were generous and the staff were very helpful. We had adjacent rooms on floor 3 and there was a large communal space with a large table, dining chairs and sofas. The children used...

I've spent just one night at the guest house and 7 nights at the youth hostel in the same building - the difference is dramatic! Room was newly renovated, super clean bathroom with marble tiling, comfortable beds, great side view of the city (also not too much sun, but just enough), privacy guaranteed as it was a corner room.

This is a hotel overlooking Old City in Jerusalem. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, and most sights are within walking distance....Sleeping quality on their beds was excellent for me after three weeks of hectic time in southern Israel..Food was very good, and each floor has a lobby where you can serve yourself a sip of coffee or tea...do emails...wireless...
