I spent 5 days in this hostel, and it was really well, the service is good, the people is really kind, the price include a simple breakfast but delicious, you have terrace on the roof, and the best thing about this hostel I think is the location, you can walk from there to almost every tourist place. They are very...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Jerusalem hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms and hallways were clean and neat, they do a great job of keeping the place tidy. It also has a very good location, right across the street from the Jaffa market, as well as a short walk to Jaffa gate and the...

An easy stroll to the old city, and smack center of the best in Jerusalem nightlife! Located on Zion Square, we heard music the first night (Saturday) and walked out to join an astonishing collective of people - all ages/races/religions joining in a shabbat feast (free!) of food, wine and music. The hotel is fine, staff super friendly and helpful....

This hostel has everything you're looking for when you're young and travelling by yourself : the price for a bed in a dorm is very low (some of the dorms are exclusively for women), the lounge is comfy and has air conditioned, and there is a terrace on the rooftop (perfect place to have a beer after a hot day)....

We did a last minute booking for 2 private rooms. The price was great and the location amazing. This is exactly what I imagine when I think of a Hostel and the staff were great.

The staff are very knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous. Nothing better than sitting on your private balcony watching the activities of Jaffa Square unfold in the evening. The breakfast was excellent and ample. A great place to hang your hat when in Jerusalem. Bonus-so close to the Old City!!
