    The staff were appalling, rude, arrogant and unhelpful. The room was filthy, the bathroom stank of sewage. The included breakfast doesn't exist. The made us pay for our stay upfront so we couldn't move to another hostel. There is no way the previous reviews with high ratings can be truthful, I will be contacting Booked.net to ask them to investgate. The worst experience I've ever had in any hotel/hostel in any country. You've been warned

    Location

    Very bad standard of building

    The dorm room is cave-like, with the dorm shower being another cave under it. Moved to Abraham's after my first night.

  • Single

    The location is very good,in the old city of Jerusalem.

    This is definitely the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Dirty rooms,broken furniture,teenage staff that are rarely available,and a breakfast which is definitely not as advertised,served in a dirty room up a very dangerous staircase.

  • Couple

    Nothing, worst hostel i have ever staid. Never go where, in adverttisment it is said that whey accept Americanexpress, but in reality whey can take only Visa, Mastercard or cash, everything is thery dirty, breakfast area is like after pig party.

  • Single
    6.0

    Location of this hostel is excellent and very comfortable, if you stay in Jerusalime for only 2 days, like me.

    It is very cold in room.

  • Couple
    3.2

    close from all sightseeing spots, easy chat with backpackers. You can have a double room (with shared bathroom) for almost the same price as 2 beds in dorms

    dirt and broken items (windows) everywhere, everything falling apart. Poor beakfast. There is a chambermaid (we met her!) but obviously she doesn't know how to handle a broom and a sponge! On the last night an insane Urkranian man knocked on our door at 4 am when searching for a phone! Best moment of our stay was chekout!

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Location, location, location! Amazing views of the City. A hostel with so much potential...

    Whilst it appeared clean, the hostel really must make an effort to update and reassure that it is clean. The bedding was old, the bath had mould and there was a awful smell of sewage in the bathroom. I understand that the building is old, but it doesn't take much to use some bleach and provide new bedding and towels. I'd avoid the breakfast

  • Single
    7.8

    The hostel has the best location for a visitor to reach Jerusalem and to visit Jerusalem, particularly for a Budget / Backpacker visitor. Roof terrace to overview Jerusalem is a plus for a hostel.

  • Single
    4.6

    Only the localitation.

    All, the Hostel is very old and expansive for your deciencies.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    great views from the roof & location

    poor breakfast

  • Single
    4.6

    The only one plus is location.

    I stayed in the single room for 70$ per night and it doesn't cost these money for sure. Breakfast and cleaness is very poor. Beds are dirty.

  • Couple
    3.8

    Just the location

    No hot water in the room in winter season

  • Family with children
    3.8

    Nothing, besides it's just near Jaffa Gate, but the place is not really nice

    Everything else: bathroom is pity and dull, no bath at all, shower on the floor, towels with spots and room not dirty, but with a strong smell of whiting. Conditioner, yes, like the hole in the wall; painted windows, if you want to open them,you'll find a garbage mountain; daylight lamp only and window to corridor, that provides a light all the night...

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location was amazing even though it was a bit scary late night.

    The area at night. The neighborhood kids are not very kind to American girls at night
