    Hostel was in a good spot, very close to Jaffa Gate. Reception lady was above and beyond in making sure I got where I needed to be. Thank you, I didn’t even get her name.

    Estuvo muy bien ubicado el hostal ya que esta dentro de la ciudad antigua, para encontrarlo tienen que ver en el callejon frente a la torre de David , cuando entras te haran el check in y deberas pagar en efectivo ya que no aceptan tarjeta de credito que es uno de los puntos a mejorar, el hostal esta construido como dentro de una cueva por lo que es muy fresco a toda hora del dia, el hostal no tiene desayunos, adicional el staff es muy amigable y hospitalario, mando un saludo Gladis.

    The stay was pretty good. I've got a warm welcome from the reception guy. He knew my Name and take care of me during the registration process. I stayed in a 5-bed Dorms, was pretty clean even though it was an old house with old rooms. Wifi works only On/Off all the time because of the thick walls. The bathroom+shower was all together and the Shower is Open to the air and wasnt much comftarble. But for my Price i had fine stay for a night and the location is really Good in front of David Tower.

    Staff is incredibly helpful and the location is unbeatable However, our room was damp and smelly; beds too small and uncomfortable; our toilet was also rather filthy.

    The dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in. The location is perfect for sightseeing, the staff are very nice and helpful, the view from the roof is great, the rooms are quiet. The bad news: The whole hotel is incredibly dirty. My room obviously hasn't been cleaned properly for years. Mildew everywhere in the bathroom and at the door, toilet paper wasn't allowed to be thrown into the toilet, the floor had a wide, dark edge of dirt, not a single hook in the room to hang a towel, Really disgusting.
