Right in the old City

by written on May 2, 2005

Pretty famouse hostel for backpackers or none backpackers.
Its Location is Great, just in the exit from the old Market and near a few meters walk from the Citadel. Absolutely fantastic Location.

As about service or prices i cant help, i haven't stayed there but been there on March 2005 and went to their roof to take some photos of the old city. Fantastic.

I've seen some of its guests sitting in the balcony of their rooms enjoying the atmosphere of the old city, to be honest it looked really nice and tempting.

Petra (Inside of Old City)

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 3, 2003

We arrived Jerusalem at 0700, so we did not have much time to find a better hostel, 'cos we were too tired after 13-hour flight.
We should understand that we just paid 20NSH (around US$5 per night), and should be satisfied.

We slept on the roof-top. It was so cold in the mid-night. The toilet was dirty (well, could be said "not clean enough").

And, it seemed to be not safe, 'cos many people would talk/sleep near you and there was no place to hide your property.

It is located just 3-minute away from the Jaffa Gate and opposite of the Tower of David. It is quite easy to find. If you need to sleep earlier, it could be a hell that the noisy main street will make you crazy.

There were some local tours that the hostel keeper will ask your interest or you could check the information.

Anyway, we moved the next day.

Directions: just 3 minutes walk from the Jaffa Gate, opposite of the Tower of David

Petra, Yerushalayim from the roof

by written on March 30, 2003

One of the places wher the cheaper neans the better. If you rent an appartment, you may have all the comfort of a soft bed (and casual sex probably), but if you set your sleeping bag on the roof you'll enjoy the marvelous view of Yerushalayim at night, or in the morning or whenever you're there. The people around you will come from such distant places, you'll be amazed. Because not all the crowds that go to the global tourist spots go there. It's a different kind of crowd. You'll see.

Unique Quality: 5-20 minutes to anywhere

Directions: 50 m after entering the Jaffa Gate, on the left hand side
