Jerusalem Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 11, 2014

In October 2013 we paid 75$(280nis) for a double room with private bathroom, pricey for a hostel but Jerusalem is expensive.

Location:
On Jaffa street couldn’t be more central, in walking distance (5-10’) from the Old City. There is a tram stop nearby to reach Old City, Yehuda market, central Bus Station etc Lots of stores, café and restaurants around. Ideal spot.

Room:
We had a normal double room with nice view from our balcony over Jaffa street and the twin towers. It was nice until we realized that the tram ring will be disturbing (hopefully it didn’t run through the night too) every 3’ as it passed by Zion square. No frills about the room, but it was a regular 2star room actually, clean and hopefully there was air-condition but we didn’t stay inside much anyway. Bathroom was also clean but there was warm water on specific hours only (we were lucky though)!

Reception/staff:
Helpful staff but be patient as it gets busy, they gave us a code for the front door, the reception area is the common area but we didn’t really stay there.
Have in mind that there will be no one around during Sabbath to answer the door so don’t forget your code :)

Breakfast:
Very poor breakfast, just some bread, jam and instant coffee, in a small kitchen that gets crowded easily with no space to sit! (in summer the roof terrace must be nice) a real unpleasant experience comparing with some great breakfasts we had every day in Israel. But you can use the well equipped kitchen to make your own meals.

Other facilities:
Free wifi in common areas

Directions: at Jaffa Road, Light Rail stop is just at the corner, 10' walk from Jaffa Gate

Affordable hostel, Jaffa Street

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 23, 2005

In oktober 2005, I stayed in a simple private room (class C) with douche and toilet. It was simple (no television, no phone), but clean. They also have dorm rooms. Location is on Jaffa Street, opposite of Ben Jehuda Street; it is a 10 or 15 minutes walk to Jaffa Gate.
I booked two nights via www.hostelbookers.com, which worked out fine.
