I stayed in the New Swedish Hostel in August as a couple. The facilities are not great. I slept in the dorm room and was fairly sure that the bed linen/anything anywhere had not been washed in a while. Cleanliness is obviously not a priority. Kitchen facilities are very limited and the showers are cramped.
However, on the positive side the New Swedish Hostel is in a prime location a few minutes walk from Jaffa Gate. Once you leave the hostel you are right in the centre of the Old City and for this its location is unrivalled.
If you are not fussy about where you sleep or about hygiene and want to talk to some crazy (not always in a good way) other guests then definitely visit the Swedish Hostel. The owners once you get them talking are great. Karim (a co-owner) will give you his life story willingly.
