Property Description

Habibi Hostel is unlike any other accommodation in Palestine or the region. Not only is this a place to stay and to socialise, it also acts as a cultural hub. The Hostel seeks to provide those visiting our land with an in depth knowledge of Palestinian culture, ways of life, and the realities of living under occupation. So that means we offer tours, day outings, adventure activities like biking and camping, Arabic learning programs, and chances to interact with local people in their day to day lives. Ahlan wah Sahlan (Greetings and Welcome) to your second home, Palestine.

Habibi Hostel is located minutes from the centre of Bethlehem’s historic and beautiful Old City, our Hostel provides an amazing launching pad for your adventures in Palestine. A short bus trip away can take visitors to Jerusalem, with all that it has to offer, and historic Hebron. Just up the hill from the hostel are a number of restaurants serving local food, fresh juice, and pizza. Guests can also find grocery stores, pharmacies, a library, and shops surrounding the hostel. The Bethlehem Old City is a ten minute walk from the hostel.

We offer a range of accommodation including male, female and mixed gender dorms or a private room. Guests have free access to the kitchen, living space and balcony. The private room has an ensuite bathroom with a shower and a private balcony. There is a 6 bed male dorm and a six bed female dorm, and two 8 bed mixed gender dorms.

From Jerusalem at Damascus Gate take bus number 231 (Beit Jala) to arrive on Hebron Road in Bethlehem. From there you will walk 12 min passing through the first traffic light till you see Al Sham restaurant (schwarma and falafel) then walk down the hill and the hostel will be on the left second floor.

From Central Bus Station you can either walk or take taxi (cost approx. 15-20nis). Walking it will take around 20-25 minutes. Upon exiting the station head to your left crossing the street. You will see two narrow staircases heading straight up, take one of those. Upon completing the stairwell head left till you arrive towards another staircase and hill heading up. Follow the street for approx. 15min making no turns off the main road until you arrive at traffic light on Hebron road. Upon arriving at the traffic light turn left and follow the road till arriving at Al Sham restaurant then go down the hill and the hostel will be on the left.

From Hebron ask the driver to stop at Al Sham restaurant and from there you will head down the hill and the hostel is on the lefthand side.

    Bethlehem is hilly mostly. This is considered one of the better hostel not too much steep slope in most hostels, while walking from no.231 terminal to their place is only one. They have a friendly dog that's playful. Place is spacious and airy. Will return back.

    Unfortunately this place is unacceptable. When I got there the hostel was overbooked, so that people had to sleep in the staff room or on the couch in the living room. There are only two toilets/showers, so that people were getting in line in the morning. Worst part is that there is NO SAFETY AT ALL! Every person from the street can just walk in and get straight into the rooms. - This is a no-go!
