    I had a wonderful stay, my best hostel experience so far!! The staff was so so nice, helpful and genuine, and there was a good atmosphere over all. I had loads of fun. The hostel itself was clean, fresh and nicely designed. Totally worth the money, and even more. They even let me practice my trumpet in the basement! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

    They are really nice in the hostel. The concept of being a center of artistic and cultural activities for the neighbourhood is amazing.

    Staff is very helpful, they will give you tips about the city , buses and places to go, they will also chill with you taking some beers and talk about life. Beds are just ok, structure is kinda old, but normal. Location is great, it's walking distance to the old city and if you like to walk you can also go to the bus station from there, otherwise just take the streetcar. I'd recommend put some covers on the beds for privacy.

    Nice hostel, friendly staff, good location. Could use lockers. I stayed there for 4 of 6 nights in Jerusalem. I would have stayed longer and rated higher, but some of the locals that come to the bar downstairs can be a bit wierd, including one that kept kept chatting $*it to me about my nationality. I'm not about that, I'm just there to have a good time, so I eventually just moved hostels for the remainder of my time in Jerusalem.

    Hostel is very new so I don't want to be too hard on them, the facilities definitely need improvement. Need lockers and room keys, curtains that fit the windows, better AC. There wasn't any atmosphere to speak of, wouldn't have been good as a solo traveller. I took a 5ish minute shower and never got hot water although my friend got hot water after some time. It's cheap though and close to old town so you get what you pay for.

    It was not clearly written the age requirement.The staff was mocking and aggressive that I was of course supposed o know of this.It in fact took the hostel rep 5 minutes himself to find the short line of age requirements. Then it was you lost your hostel commission money go figure it out with them.Ok I think we can help with the commission. This is another new hassle when I get home to make sure I was not charged. There are hostels empty on every block good luck finding this one.
