A very mixed bag here as it will suit some & turn off most offering dorms & private rooms. It has a covered rooftop area with clear unobstructed views of the Rock on the Dome, Al Aqsa Mosque & much of the neighbourhood in the muslim quarter, stunning views at night.
Unmarried couples must sleep on separate floors as the hostel is run by muslim dudes or buy some cheap rings. You can negotiate to have a dorm to yourself. No alcohol can be consumed on the premises so aussies should avoid blowing into their faces.
My shoebox had 4 single beds or 2 bunks, LCD tv, air con, hot water & free wifi but not great in the rooms. Theres enough space for 1 skinny vegetarian to move around but fatties will dispair. Once the bathroom mould touches water from the shower it stinks a bit so make an educated choice. The girls had a double bed which they negotiated for 300 NIS which included a simple buffet breakfast. Free WiFi is ok in the reception lobby but dodgy everywhere else, has 2 computers for guests.
Male staff were probably a bit too friendly with my gf & sister but seemed threatened whenever i was around which is unfair since i like flirting too. I suppose being a former world wrestling champion does that to people. We got outta there the next day for the Petra Hostel.
The Hashimi Hotel & Hostel is located firmly in the Muslim Quarter not far from Damascus Gate in the Old City close to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre & not too far from the 6th Station of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa.
