Rooftop bed! Simple comfort, the noise of the city (of course), but still a one million star hotel, with an incredible wieuw, perfect location and good atmosphere

I'd recommend this hostel because value for money is really good and the location itself is an experience. A few suggestions for the staff: when everyone says WiFi isn't working upstairs, listen to your clients and don't repeat over and over again that there's another network where we have to connect (there wasn't or it wasn't online). Also, more blankets needed and preferably ones that stay dry. It's awesome sleeping on the roof, though prepare to be awake at 4am due to chants of the Mosque.

Great prices/location! Best place ever! You can see the Dome of the Rock, and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher from the rooftop! This Hostel is over 700 years old, on ground that is considered sacred and holy by most of the world! I have stayed in this place a number a times and it remains the one true Hostel I will never forget. Perfect location at the 4 corners of the old city and easy to get to! If you are in Rome this is a must see hostel that is great in value and is in the perfect locati

There are a lot of volunteers working in the hostel. Some of them stayed in our dorm and used multiple beds. They just slept on different bed however they like. We stayed there for 3 nights and never saw them changing the bed sheets after people left.

The rooftop and the dorms are amazing, the private room without window and less magical.

The staff does what they have to do. They aren't unfriendly but not very helpfull either. The place wasn't clean. The private " bathroom " is a shower next to the toilet. Very very small. Cannot avoid everything being wet after a shower. Besides there is growing fungus. Not clean. View from roof terrace is wonderful.

The hostel is built into tower, so the walls are very thick. There's no air conditioning but it's generally ok because it doesn't get too hot inside, just stuffy. The wifi is great everywhere except in the rooms and there are only single power points for charging devices. The young staff are really helpful and friendly and present around the clock to help out. The location is good, near Jaffa Gate. The toilets are in the same space as showers which isn't ideal in a small space
