Staff was very nice and helpful!! Location is great and view from the roof top awesome!!!! Room was not so good - in female dorm it was very hot during the day and night and a little bit smelly, so the room wasn't pleasant at all. The kitchen is well equipped and of a good size, you can also eat on the roof top which is great. Bathrooms small and quite difficult to use. Atmosphere very nice, you can meet interesting people there!

Great location in the old city. cool hostel tucked away into a winding building with a great view of the city from the roof. Simple but comfortable accommodations and friendly staff.

Cuando reservé esperaba algo más, los baños son un poco difíciles de usar ya que están juntos la regadera y el sanitario.

the wifi never works. the receptionist says that the the bezeq internet company likes to "turn off the internet", but as an israeli, i can say that this is bullshit. all you have to do is call bezeq's technical support and they show up in one day. The hostel never tried to fix their wifi. the sheets are not changed and they stink from sweat and mold. the receptionist is extremely rude, especially when you ask her to do something about the sheets.

Nice hostel, really friendly and helpful staff with a lot of knowledge about the area. Good atmosphere, i met some nice young people at the hostel (mostly 20-40 years old). Clean rooms, nice rooftop terrace. The only bad thing was that the dorm was really really hot (no airconditioning). Also it was kind of crazy to be located in the old city. Both a good and bad thing (it takes some time to get trough a crazy market). Overall a pleasant and interesting stay!

The staff is cool, the location is perfect, the facilities are ok, the only thing bothered me a little bit at first was that the room smells a little weird but it is not a big deal.

Amazingly great location in the heart of Old Jerusalem... And safe!!! Near Jaffa gate; built into centuries old stone walls!!! Would be nice to have free coffee and toast in the mornings. (Many hostels offer coffee, some a continental breakfast.) But a great, great place!

First of all,would definitely stay again. Adam is awesome but the rest of the staff have a "you and them" mentality and were rude at times when we had misunderstandings. If you sleep on the roof, keep everything in your bag. I had stuff underneath my pillow and the staff packed up my mattress, even though i was staying more nights, and lost one of my belongings. Excellent view.No real common room. Adam is awesome - can and will answer ALL questions you have, with great patience for us tourists.

The hostel has a very good location in the heart of Old Jerusalem. The building is an old house full of nooks and crannies but cool to explore. It has a pretty nice roof top terrace to enjoy some beers. We stayed in a dorm room and had to use bathrooms on the floor, which unfortunately have not been cleaned very decently.
