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.
Quite an amazing place to stay, right in the old city near to Jaffa Gate. the atmosphere and location makes it very attractive. Couldn't fault the staff, they were very helpful. A very pleasant week for me.
I was my self a hostel manager, and I must say that the management at Citadel Hostel is first rate. Polite, professional, prepared, absolutely helpful. Clean and quiet room, they have a fully equipped kitchen and a fully worth rooftop. Definitely, a place to go...More
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.
This was definitely a cheap option but I wish I had a paid a little more and stayed elsewhere. We stayed in a room on the first floor. Soo much noise we didn't get sleep any of the days. Since it's a 2000 yr old...More

I stayed in one of the double private rooms... the one on first floor in the back. The room wasn't too much bigger than the bed, but had a dresser and room to store our packs as well. One window that opens and also let's in a good ammount of light. The bathroom was right outside the room though, not inside. The room door locked, so we didn't have a problem leaving our things in there - though the only expensive things I brought with me were my computer and camera, and the camera came with me literally everywhere.
Side note... it's a no-brainer for most travelers in hostels, but don't leave your passport anywhere, even locked up. I had a specific pair of travel pants with a front zipper pocket and an rfid travel pouch that I kept my credit card and passport in, along with extra cash. Then kept other cash in a seperate place... pickpockets are rampant throughout David Street (the main market) and Jaffa Gate!
