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.

The rooftop beds are a great price, and the location is hard to beat. There are very few electrical outlets available though, and WiFi is only available in a few places. Also, there is no tent, despite what the hostelworld options say. You are out in the open, so expect at least a few Mosquito bites!

We only stayed for one night in this hostel and we loved the location and decoration inside though we were not that satisfied with our private room. there was no fan or AC and the window had a net which didnt let the fresh air come in, so it was too hot for sleeping. the bathrooms cleanliness could also improve a lot:/ otherwise its a good offer and the receptionist was friendly!

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.

Wonderful location in the Old City. Beautiful view of the city from the rooftop. I've stayed on the rooftop sleeping terrace on 3 different trips and as long as you are prepared for the temperature to drop drastically at night, the rooftop is just fine. The cleanliness is a bit lacking, the communal bathrooms always smell, as do the blankets the provide for the sleeping terrace. Keep your expectations low, and enjoy the view and you'll be just fine.

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