This hostel is perfectly located right in the center of the old city. It's lovely settled in old building and has a great rooftop. On the other hand, the kitchen was extremely dirty and the shower in our room was broken.

Beautiful old building, well cared for. Sweet atmosphere. Many chores done by volunteers. Kitchen available. Best roof in the world. Run by Christian Arabs. Great location. I keep going back there whenever in the city because I love it here.
