Hotel East New Imperial: Charming budget hotel inside Old City

For budget travelers, the Hotel East New Imperial offers loads of charm and a great location. Just inside the walls of the Old City, the Holy Sepulchre and the Dome of the Rock are a short walk away. Unless you are going somewhere in the New City, there really is no need for taxis.

Decorated with photos of the Holy Land and traditional Palestinian robes, the walls of this hotel are a virtual museum. The rooms are small and simple. The large common areas, which are adorned with couches and oriental rugs, more than make up for it. The hotel offers free, albeit slow, Internet access. A simple buffet breakfast is included in the price.

While this hotel is not perfect, the friendliness of the staff more than made up for it. Mr. Dajani, who runs the hotel, is one of the most gracious people you will ever meet. He provided us with very accurate travel advice, which was much appreciated considering everyone else who offered help usually wanted money in return.

Because of a dispute with local authorities, the long-term status of the hotel is uncertain. While the staff continues to maintain the facilities, they admit they are likely fighting a losing battle. Be sure to contact the hotel before arriving.

Abraham hostel: Great place that has it all

This great hostel has been well thought out and has everything i look for in a hostel, hence why it makes my list of favourites.

Its located on Hanev'im street, about a 15min walk to the old town but just a 5min walk to Mahane yehuda market.

Its 270NIS for a double room for a night including a continental (meat and chesse less) breakfast.

Staff are friendly and helpful, it has a great common area that includes a small bar with various different types of chair/seat to chill out on, a tv lounge, a large kitchen and eating area and a games area. they soon plan to have a roof terrace.
they organise many trips around and out of city and also pub crawls.

breakfast is basic but you can eat lots!

the double room is en suite and big enough to have plenty of space, including a fridge and sink.

would stay here again and again

Notre Dame de Sion: Overlooking Ein Kerem



Overlooking the picturesque Ein Kerem on the western outskirtds of Jerusalem is the Notre Dame de Sion. Like many other monasteries and churches in Jerusalem, it also provides accommodation. It might not be as fancy as the famous hotels, but it has a unique atmosphere. Located in a beautiful garden on the top of the hill with great views of Ein Kerem and the wadi below.

Caution: While this place is ideal for exploring Ein Kerem, it is quite far from the city centre. So, you'll need to have car or take a taxi or bus to go there.

Just inside Jaffa Gate of Old Jerusalem: Christ Church Guest House

We did not stay here on this trip, but we did have lunch. The lunch was a simple open smorgasboard affair, but for the little money it cost it was very plentiful and tasty. We slso made note that the was extremely clean and well kept, I would assume that the rooms are similar. Please let me know if you try this place out.

What is good about the guest house is the location. It is INSIDE the old city, just to the right after you pass through the Jaffa Gate, literally under David's Tower (near the Police Station).

St. George's Cathedral Guest House

A tiny, light, whitewashed gothic revival church within complex surrounding a courtyard.

A few blocks away from the Damascus Gate of the Old City through a mixed urban middle-eastern neighborhood.

Tabasco: Old City Hostel

I stayed at Tabasco a couple of times, first time we found it too noisy & not a great place to be, which is why we moved to the Faisel Hostel .

The second time was in a group and we pretty much has the dorm to ourselves, so it was fine.

Its a very lively place, it could have totally changed since I was there, but it wouldnt be my first choice of budget accommodation.

Travelling on budget? Just go...

Travelling on budget? Just go to a youthhostel. There are several. For example Faisal youthhostel. When you get out of the old city through Damascus gate and cross the road, the hostel is at your left hand on the corner.
Prices like 10/15 dollars-20 dollars per night. Depends on the room you choose.

Near the old city. It's just ten steps away.

I stayed at the Imperial Hotel. It is in the old city. When you enter the old city by Jaffa Gate, take the first street on your left hand.
The hotel costs 36 dollars per night.

You have good long beds, your own shower and toilet.

New Town Hostels: New Town Hostel

A group of 6 of us stayed at a hostel in new Jerusalem over the christmas period. Our room for 6 became a room for 10 then some other Kibbutz volunteers decided to follow us down & slept on the floor. Apologies for not rembering the name of where we stayed when I do I will include it here, it was a very nice hostel though, clean & reasonable priced. Also good of them to let the rest of the other join us when they had trouble finding somewhere to stay over the Christmas period.

Old City Accomodation

My favourite accomodations are the hostels in the Old City, especially in the Labrynthine streets around Damascus gates.Most are cheap and friendly and often have a Travellers Bar or eating room of one kind or another. The only drawback is the curfews as the old city closes down at night. Be sure to ask when you check in.

For the best views get a mattress on the roof of the Petra Hostel. Sunrise and sunset over the Old City and its environs are amazing from here.
I stayed for a while at the Tabasco Hostel, which I know is still there. 5 years ago a dorm bed cost 12 NIS, a roof bed about 10. It was one of the cheapest backpacker hostels, i doubt much has changed. The Tabasco Tearooms, one of the main travellers meeting places in Jerusalem, is located underneath the hostel, just inside an archway. The staff here are great and can sometimes help you out getting work and also info on sights and tours.The food and drink are cheap. The only drawback is the noise from the bar, if you are looking for a peaceful nights sleep!
