This was definitely a cheap option but I wish I had a paid a little more and stayed elsewhere. We stayed in a room on the first floor. Soo much noise we didn't get sleep any of the days. Since it's a 2000 yr old...More

I spent three nights on the roof in May. The view was incredible, and the staff was very helpful in arranging transportation. Additionally, towels are available for free. My only real complaint is the lack of cleanliness. The sheets available to guests staying on the...More

Nice place with warm people and a roof with a view to the old city. Perfect location, into the old city of Jerusalem and pretty close to everything. Friendly staff with people happy to give you information for every place you want to visit.

I never used them, but they are pretty decent sized, and yes you have to rent them and provide your own lock. But really, I'd only use them if you have something particularly expensive that you aren't going to keep with you... More
