Stayed at this Guesthouse for several days. I have stayed in most of Israel's Guesthouses over the years, so I know of what I speak. Property is relatively new and has a very nice, 1/2 Olympic-sized swimming pool (which happened to be closed as it was winter). Rooms were as good as any in the Guesthouse market, with full bathrooms in each room. I stayed in 2 different rooms and each room had 4 potential beds. However, 4 staying in these rooms would be crowded, especially with 4 people's luggage.
Guesthouses are quite often inhabited by lots of young people, and this one was no exception. It is a definite experience to have 100 young, energetic, undisciplined Israeli youth making noise into the wee hours of the mornings. If you are planning to save money by staying at ANY Guesthouse, expect lots of noise. Otherwise, if the kids aren't there, you will do fine.
Unlike many of Israel's other Guesthouses, this one is a little bit out of the way and one needs to take a taxi or bus to get to just about any activity in Jerusalem (except the Zoo which is, basically, next door; or, the mall which is also close). The location can be a disappointment if you are used to staying within walking distance of where you want to go.
The biggest drawback to this Guesthouse is the food. One day eating in the cafeteria will provide most of the range of food you will eat every other day. Even the Masada Guesthouse, which gets a bad grade for its food, is better than here.
Having said all this, the staff has been trained to serve its customers, something VERY unusual in Israel, especially at Guesthouses.
