          The location of this hostel is fantastic, and staying in such an old building is certainly a novelty, especially with a rooftop to be able to see all over the old city. However the hostel was so damp it ruined several items we placed on...More

          The best and cheapest hostel in the direct centrum of Jerusalem. They are friendly for everything. We stay there 2 nights with group of 15 friends. They respekt night silence and sleeping was well. Only the kitchen and bathroom need small modernisation.

          Awesome location. Sitting on the rooftop you can see part of the western wall and the temple mount, you can hear bells of plenty churches and voice of mullah. Really inspiring and amazing at the same time.
