The best and cheapest hostel in the direct centrum of Jerusalem. They are friendly for everything. We stay there 2 nights with group of 15 friends. They respekt night silence and sleeping was well. Only the kitchen and bathroom need small modernisation.

Awesome location. Sitting on the rooftop you can see part of the western wall and the temple mount, you can hear bells of plenty churches and voice of mullah. Really inspiring and amazing at the same time.

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
