This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Dont go there, i tried to get out as soon as i could. Should not be legal for outlet. A women i spoke to had to leave because of alergic reaction to bugs. Not clean. Very noisy could not sleep. Islamic callings again and again at any hour. And the roof top view wasent good at all. I dident even feel safe there. To tell the truth i wonder who wrote all the good review about. I spoke to 3 persons there and thay were in a hurry too to get out of there. = :-(

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good location, close to christian and armenian quarter. Close to some nice restaurants. Took some nice pictures from the balcony.

Linen was to small for the bed and was really really old. No plug close to the bed. No windows in room, so very stuffy. Remember to get towels at reception. Bathroom very small and without shower curtain.

Guy at reception very friendly.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was December when I stayed there, so my room was very cold, as was most of the common rooms in the hostel. The hostel is very basic, with a shower that ran out of hot water, but accommodation in Israel is expensive so overall it wasn't so bad. And the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is excellent, with an amazing view from my (cold) window.
