Reviewed December 22, 2008

I am staying at this hostel right now. I wanted to meet some friends in Jerusalem who don’t have space to host me and my 5-year old son, and it is nice to have your own room in walking distance to the old and new city. The Palm Hostel is at a messy, busy street with all kinds of small vendors. The shops seem to always be open, and almost at the corner of the street there is a cheap and okay restaurant with falafel, shoarma etc. (Plate of falafel for less than 2 Euro!). I booked a room by internet through hostelworld.com and I am paying the price that was agreed on (45 USD per night for 2 persons in a double room with private bathroom). The rooms are very basic, there aren't even shelves or hooks to put anything on. It's just a bed with walls around it. There are some sheets, blankets and pillows on the bed, but I highly recommend to bring a sleeping bag and/or some bedsheets/pillow covers. But of course you can also ask for these. The receptionists do speak some English and are happy to help you, when they're not on the phone, which they are most of the time. You can ask for things that you miss – like a mirror, a heater, a towel, toiletpaper – and they may bring you. They will also wash your laundry for 7 Euro per load. But what they say will be fixed in 1 hour may take a day or even longer. Some things you may get faster by yourself in a store, like a divider to use more than 1 electric item at a time. The private bathroom is the size of a toilet with a small sink, the shower is a handset plus a hole in the floor, next to the toilet. Water is nice and warm. The rooms can be locked on the inside and on the outside with a key. There's definitely no tv in the rooms, but there is in the lobby, which also offers free tea and coffee. There are 2 computers to use for free, and there is wifi (you get the password for free) but if you're staying in a room upstairs (which are smaller, but newer and slightly less noisy) you have to walk out of the room in order to use wifi on your laptop. If you put your laptop on the dryer, you have great access. From the airport right at the main exit you can take a shared Nesher taxi 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and you pay only 10 Euro. They will bring you to the door. Make sure you don't drag your luggage upstairs to the wrong hostel, like I did, because there are 2 hostels right next to each other, and you may want to enter the hostel that you have booked. The rooms are rather noisy, you hear the noise from the street as well as the noise from other guests - so bring earplugs - but there are some quiet hours at night.
