I stayed for two nights in a big dorm room. The ventilation was efficient and the mattresses comfortable. There are several public toilets and showers for the guests. The breakfast is included in the 80 shekel and is quite good for a hostel. The location is perfect, between Via Dolorosa and Damascus Gate. Free tea and WiFi is available at... More

Stayed here a few times. Would agree with most of the other reviews. Pretty clean and basic. Few things to add. Free tea and coffee in lobby. Dorms 80 shekels per night. The manager Lutfy communicates well via email but really does need to learn a thing or two re customer service.

This hotel is right in the centre of Jerusalem with all the sights being really accessible. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Food is served buffet style with plenty of variety and every taste and diet catered for with dishes always replenished when empty. The bar and lounge are comfortable. The only slightly negative point... More

I really enjoyed this hotel right in the heart of the muslim quarter in the old city. Nice rooms, good shower, decent breakfast and free coffee, tea and wifi in the reception area. I really felt at home here and was sorry to leave.

I stayed here on two occasions for six nights in May / June 2014 as part of a group, and I was pleasantly surprised. I had not stayed in the Old City before, and my preconceptions were such that I probably would not have if I had not been part of the group. It has been a long long time... More

The best thing about the hostel is location-very close to Damascus Gate so there is no need to carry the luggage more than 5 minutes along the narrow, crowded streets - and there you are in the middle of the Old City of Jerusalem. The hostel is clean and the staff is very friendly. They have 2- and 3-persons rooms... More

The Golden Gate Hostel was a great place to use as a home base. Our small group toured Jerusalem, then took side trips to Bethlehem and Hebron, staying at the Golden Gate 4 nights out of 9. The proprietor was kind enough to let us store our excess baggage there during our side trips so we didn't have to schlep... More

We stayed here for a week in February 2014. I can say that we had a nice experience in this hostel, except that our room have not been cleaned during our entire stay. Positive points: - The hostel is just 5 minutes walk from Damascus Gate, and about 2-3 minutes walk to Via Dolorosa. - So many stores around the... More
