Located conveniently next to the Damascus gate to the old city this place fits the bill. Friendly staff and a safe environment no fear to leave things in the room. The rooms are used but comfortable. Amenities adequate. There is a great lounge with refreshing tea and coffee as well as heavenly chilled water. Perhaps not the place for fans... More

The location is fine, but nothing special. Its decently far from Ben Yehuda street, but very close to the old city. The main man who runs the place is nice, but the people of the hostel kinda keep to themselves. Its a great homebase, but not a great place to hangout.

Not quite what we expected but over-all positive experience. The first impression was kind of awkward as they didn’t have our reservation and required that we bring it printed. As the administrator was no very fluent in English we struggled a bit till finally we managed to get our reservations using their computers. The hotel environment is not very lively.... More

The location is great, it is just right outside of the Damascus gate of the old city. The room is basic but ok. But the internet sucks! We couldn't get any connection in our room. And the staff response is that this is internet company's problem, not theirs. So every time we want to use Internet, we have to go... More

We had a very good experience staying here. The location is great (right across the street from the Old City) & they are very accommodating / generous. The rooms are fairly nice, and they have a van & driver that you can rent for a day--which we did and enjoyed; the driver took us wherever we wanted and we had... More

I made my reservation 47 days in advance (with 42 days left for free cancellation ) when I saw a bargain deal promoted on booking.com. However, when I arrived at the hostel for checking in , I was told that the room rate I booked (and been confirmed by booking.com) was not correct due to a "system error ", the... More

The hostel is next to local market. It's noisy for whole day till midnight. I can't sleep well at there. The bed is hard and not so comfortable. When i go outing, the nearby street and road is not clean and not easy to walk due to the goods of local market.

Not sure why this guesthouse has poor reviews. I stayed here twice in March and April. It's cheap and cheerful with a superb location - very very easy to find, opposite Damascus Gate tram stop and one minute from Damascus Gate itself. There's a brightly lit sign so you can't miss it! I also recommend staying just outside the Old... More
