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

I was lost and Citadel help me have a positive stay in the old city Jerusalem. I would advise anyone you can't have a better deal for the price and location. The view from the roof top over Old Jerusalem is priceless. One night I saw a shooting star. It's a win win situation!

If you really wanna get the Jerusalem experience, look no more and stay here! You are inside the old city, that is amazing.The place is amazing, the vibe is unique, and the location is perfect, near all major attractions and dining spots, even nightclubs and bars. The staff was really helpful, really knew the way around and could give good advice on tours to take. The views from the roof top are breathtaking, and there are plenty of restrooms, and services like laundry provided for a fair fare.

Great location and staff, the bed situation on the roof was a little disorganised, but a good price. Being in the old city was a brilliant place to be.
