Awesome location, awesome people. They even provide a light breakfast. The location is amazing considering how affordable it is. The front door is locked at all times the only security issue was there are no individual lockers. But they do have a safe if you need any valuables locked away during your stay. They also let you store your luggage there after checkout. I would definately recommend this place and will be back on my next visit.


Not the cleanest, not the most beautiful but everything ok. Good location, in the heart of the new city, walking distance to the old city. Even has a small breakfast, although the price per night was pretty low.


Very nice choice to explore Jerusalém. Amazing breakfast. I really recommend


The only good thing about this hostel is its location. Staff is rude and unable to manage reservations (one of our beds was suddenly given to someone else). The hygenic standards are questionable (e.g. disgusting, shabby carpet in the room). Dorm rooms are narrow and the beds are in a horrible condition (make creaky noises and start shaking after every move). The door to the dorms cannot be locked and there were no lockers around. I would definitely NOT recommend this property to anyone!


We found the Jerusalem Hostel close the practically all facilities, very good location "TRAM" right out of the door. The atmosphere was very good and we met lot's of new people from all over the world. What was very bad was cleanliness, the room wasn't clean when we entered. I also suggest the rooms be cleaned more often. We were there for 15 days and was cleaned only once. Breakfast was fine being a Continental one. Very Poor for booking the Sheirut. The hostel should try managing this not
