Although it may not be the most comfortable hostel in the world, we certainly liked our stay in New Swedish Hostel. The location is perfect and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a rather calm hostel for those whose main objective is to feel the Holy City.
Nobody there most of the day. Friendly helpful staff when they were there. Very small shower nowhere to under dress or hang your clothes. Tiny toilet easy to bang your head on the ceiling. Nice free coffee and tea. Reasonable price.
The place was inside the old city which we loved. We stayed here for 2 nights in a 12-bed dorm which was not fully booked. Free wireless internet which we only knew in our 2nd day stay. Owner must take down their internet rental signage in the reception. Beds, toilets, and shower rooms were cramped but typical in Jerusalem. Friendly staff though.
Very good hostel!! Excellent location in the middle of the Old City, just walking distance from everything. The owner was very kind and friedly and helped us with everything. As we read in other comments, toiletts and showers are a bit too small but always very clean. Shared room was confortable and really good wifi!! Offers free tea and coffee and a small kitchen to cook something. Definitely recommended!!!
I know that you get what you pay for so I wasn´t expecting much, but I hardly slept because I couldn´t stop scratching all night. My guess is that the bed sheets were full of fleas.
Positive - good location and wifi. There is a fridge in the room. Good value for money (accommodation in israel is quite expensive). Negative - One of the staff members is always controlling what you are doing. It is forbidden to wash clothes in the sink or shower. This is not handy.
