One of the best hostels in the West Bank, nice staff to deal with. They facilitate our trip and tours specially that it is located in a historical area (Jericho). I advice everyone to go there and use the tours plans as one of to do list.

Sami hostel, named after the owner, is more than just a place to stay. Like with most accommodation in Jericho, it is also located out of town but priced very reasonably. I paid 200 shekels for two nights in a triple, shared bathroom instead of 120 per night. If you can brush away the worn interior and minimalistic design you...

Meti... just arrived, relaxing, writing, enjoying the beautiful home-like atmosphere here. She's Ethiopian-American, and ended up in Jericho by pure chance. We've been sitting here talking about everything from my hometown to the world about life joy and pain, celebrating the small miracles of accidental encounters and rich stories... Welcome to Palestine and to Sami's

We have been Jericho a couple of times, and always stay in this friendly hostel because it's not only the best choice for your budget, but also they are super-kind and attentive. When we visit Jericho, we would stay this place again definitely.

Less than half a mile northwest of Jericho is a large spring of water called Ein es-Sultan meaning "The Sultan's Spring" in Arabic. It is the largest spring in the lower Jordan Valley and unlike many springs in the area, the water always flows without failing. The water forms a pool which is used for irrigation. In Bible times, there...

Originally we hadn't planned to stay in Jericho but when we had found Sami's youth Hostel we didn't want to leave anymore and stayed for 4 nights. We were welcomed by Sami and his family with open arms and a lot of hospitality. So the hostel was not simply a place to stay but became a home for us and...

“All rooms are OK, but the higher floors offer a view. The مؤذّن , muaḏḏin, muezzin call early in the morning is quite ethereal and beautiful. It is of course is a little louder on the eastern side due to the position of the مسجد‎ , masjid, mosque. (BTW...You either accept that such customs exist in this area or you don't visit. i.e. When in Rome do as Romans do ! But if you don't want the "full" local traditional experience then some inexpensive ear plugs may come in handy.)”
