I was suggested to stay at this 'Hostel' as an extension for my Birthright experience. The positive side of this place is the location: In the heart of the Old City you truly feel that you're in Jerusalem. Unfortunately that was the extent of the positive feel I got there.
Though at first welcoming, after I had gotten into a discussion with the director, a 'Rabbi
Ben Packer, about Judaism, I was accosted and verbally abused for not agreeing with everything he had said. I would not allow myself to be treated that way and left immediately and stayed somewhere else.
As a hostel that markets itself as a place to explore Jewish learning, I was greatly disturbed that there is no place for discussion and independent Jewish thought.
I would suggest you look elsewhere.More
