House of Peace Hostel
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I found the location easy to find and the locals are perfectly willing to help you if you get lost. The Hostel is no more than 20 minutes walk from the Church of Nativity at a brisk pace.

Arrival was pleasant and you get to talk to Anton who lives on the ground floor with his family. The cost for one night was 60NIS and breakfast is 20NIS which is an incredibly good price. The rooms are very nice and they're clean as well.

They can provide Coca Cola (330ml) for 4NIS and water (1.5L) for 5NIS which is cheaper than the tourist traps. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to stay in Bethlehem and wanta to see the sites etc.

hi everyone,
i had the honour of being a guest at the house of peace last summer, 2012.
i find the hostel through this web site and i choose to stay there after reading the reviews.
i loved everything about it, location, the big private room i got, the hospitality, the breakfast, and the massive balcony.
i felt at home, the couple who ran the hostel are the kind of people you wont forget cos they are genuinely happy to have you around , always smiling and polite and they treat you as a member of their family. couldnt ask for more. erika

We stayed two nights at this lovely place - in a top floor room with private bathroom an acces to the big rooftop terrace with a pretty view. I highly recommend this place - it is run by a warm, helpful and friendly elderly couple, it is pretty close to the church of nativity and main street, and yet quiet, very clean and charming.

We loved this place, it's very basic but incredibly friendly, and very safe. The roof terrace was a great place to enjoy the company of other guests, and the family were a lot of help. There were a couple of communication issues with getting laundry done and paying at the end, but any issues were quickly resolved. I will be staying there again!

This is a great place to stay, a friend and I stopped over in between travels in the West Bank and it was perfect- the rooms were clean and spacious and it's a short walk into the centre of town and the Church of the Nativity. The hosts were so nice and welcoming, they couldn't do enough for us. We wanted to make a day's excursion to the Shepherds' Field and Herodion and they sorted us out with a driver who gave us a very good rate for the day. And good value too for a twin room. Highly recommended.
