I loved this place. The guy at the front is amazingly welcome and friendly and very, very helpful. Great location, great room. I stayed in the new dorm across from the main hostel and it was awesome. Loved the feel of the place. Very warm and inviting. Thanks so much!
The great thing about this place is the atmosphere upstairs and the people you will meet staying there. It is one of the well know hostels in jerusalem and has a cool upper room where lots of people hang out and eat. The facilities, location, and cleanliness are average. The HORRIBLE thing about this place is the STAFF. Rude and stuck up. Make no attempt at making you feel welcome or answering questions if you need help. The only time they seem to "perk up" is if money is involved. Tours, etc.
Can't say enough great things about this place. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, it was very clean, center of town, and a fantastic atmosphere. Loved the peaceful atmosphere at samira. Best atmosphere i found in israel and loved the back patio:-) thank you!
Great great location. Right in old city. Definitely the pro of the hostel. Very old establishment so expect the beds to be tiny and the showers and toilets to be very small as well. Average cleanliness. Owner is very nice but has one very unusual staff member.
I have stayed at a lot of hostels over the last decade and i can honestly say that this is my favorite one so far. Convenient location and clean accomodations. What makes this place so amazing is the atmosphere and the staff. I have never felt more comfortable and welcomed at a hostel than i did at bada bing during my stay. Volkan and his staff are amazing and are the first to help you with anything you need. Amazing crew. Thank you!!
