We had a double private room w shared bathrooms. room #4 was quite roomy, but cold as the hostel is partially cut into rock (and we had no heater). Our room was just around from reception and noisy: i woken by people dragging their wheels bags down every step when leaving early morning, hearing whole Skype conversations (can only get wifi in lobby) and flushing toilets.
The downstairs showers only had cold water (brrrr! Tried 4 times, always cold) and were in the same room as the toilets. Luckily a girl pointed me in the direction of the upstairs showers w hot water.
We were right inside Jaffa Gate, so a good location but next time I will look to stay outside the old city for a sweeter smelling and less cramped place.
Guess you get what you pay for with space at a premium in Jerusalem.
Special mention to the reception team who were friendly and helpful.
