This hostel is rather basic, but its location cannot be beat! It's within the Old City walls and right by Jaffa Gate. Many different options for food and shopping within very short walking distance. It is a quiet hostel and no alcohol is permitted. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, if you're looking for an affordable and convenient place to stay within the Old City, this is a pretty good place.

You stay at this hostel for its location (right inside Jaffa Gate) and its rooftop, overlooking the Old Town and out to the Mount Of Olives. The staff are very friendly too. The dorms resemble Egyptian prison cells and the bathrooms and showers are straight out of a CIA black site. Felt a bit like doing compulsory military service on Tatooine. But good location and friendly staff.

I really enjoyed the authentic feel of the stone rooms and overall middle eastern feel. The staff were very nice and its a great place 2 meet many other travelers who are international as well. If u want 2 be in the heart of the religious community this is one of the best spots 2 stay at and it has an awesome view of the inner city area.

Wonderful staff and wonderful location. If old jerusalem is where you want to explore, this is the best place to set up camp.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Would stay here again since it has an amazing location in the Old City and was just a short walk to the main tram line and by where the tours meet.

Great location, staff really helpful. Very expensive however, for what it is... basic rooms. Could be a lot cleaner.
