I was there with a group of people for two weeks. Accommodations were clean, staff were very courteous, very helpful and very friendly if you're inclined to engage (which I recommend highly). It's really basic, and you know you're not in a Best Western - but why would you look for that when you're inside the Old City Jerusalem!

Stayed in a private room till the rest of the group arrived, then in a shared hostel room.

Loved it! If I ever get back to Palestine and spend time in Jerusalem, this is where I'll stay!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong - all the rooms are good.

We stayed here for one night in August 2011. The rooms are basic but clean. Beds were comfortable and sleep quality good. Staff were helpful. Kitchen available if you want to cook your own meals. Free tea and coffee available throughout the day. Nice deck outside. Happy with the price.

To find it, walk down Khan Al Zeit towards Damascus Gate. Look for the sign for the Hashimi Hotel. 20-30 metres further down are steps leading up to the left. You need to look hard. The steps are wide but there are stall holders on them and they are easy to miss. Go up the steps and you'll see another set of steps leading up to the Inn.

Stayed: August 2011, traveled with family

This place was an amazing location just above the souq in the old city just a bit inside the Damascus gate.

The staff weren't overly friendly, but the breakfasts were great.

We had a private room and bathroom, and it was quite pricey. But the room was really adorable. Very clean. They also had a nice sunny deck which was a great place to relax and have a meal.

Would recommend because the location is hard to beat!

Stayed here for six nights. Rooms are a little like cells with high ceilings and very basic ablution (toilet/shower/basin) facilities. A fan was essential and fortunately there was one. Breakfast was tasty and adequate with pita bread, jam, butter, hummus, coffee. I found staff friendly enough - bearing in mind they are devout Muslims, they are not likely to be looking for drunken teenyboppers as guests. Treat them with respect, they will treat you with respect. They desperately need to put up a prominent sign down in the souq, since the only way you will otherwise find this place in the chaos is by having to ask stallholders. Despite how it may appear on a map, you will have to walk here from one of the Old City gates, no possibility of taking a taxi.

I had no problems with noise, neighbours or anything of that kind. It was safe and the price was very economical. That said, I did think they could have emptied the bin in the room at the very least on a daily basis.

So, no frills, backpacker type place, perhaps for more mature visitors.
