Good location but very bog-standard otherwise


I have been coming here for the last 5 years. I love it.


The cleanliness of toilet is not enough.


Great location just near Jaffa Gate. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of public spaces. The roof is a great, affordable option.


Absolutely great location right in the heart of the old city so it's a quick walk to everything. I loved the feel of the hostel as it was very old and the stones gave it a nice vibe The wifi here was very poor. The rooftops not so impressive ether. There is NO AC OR FANS in the room so if staying during August I would reconsider. Also no common area so hard to meet other travellers.

This year the whole country was subjected to very hot summer for the first time since a hundred years. Never the less the management brought fans to cover the rooms and lobby. The Wifi runs all over the place and is powered by several extenders running around the hostel.
