Arrived tired and weary from Amman. Went up the stairs and was met by (I assume the owner). He gave what I call the usual sales patter about how he lived in London and knew this place and that. I asked about the hostel and said it was dangerous and I would be better in a room. He showed me a room and it was small but clean. He explained it was impossible to get a better room for the price. We agreed on 400 shekels for 2 nights. However when it came to paying I wished to pay in foreign currency he calculated the amounts. I thought nothing of it until I sat in the room and worked out I was paying in fact 487 shekels. I went to see him and he explained it was tax and exchange commission. He then protested and he got really angry. I asked for my money back which he did to be fair in a fit of rage and practically threw me out (not hands on but verbally). I was shocked but relived to get out of the place and went to the old town where I found a room for half the price and better quality.
