Best location EVER!
Fantastic location! Great showers and breakfast. Loved being next to the Temple Mt and Western Wall! Could easily pop in our hostel for a mid day rest or break. Could walk to everything! Mt of Olives, tunnel tour, Western Wall, Mt Zion (dormition church, St. Peter gallanticu), old city quarters, and even took a bus to Bethlehem. Never once took a taxi or had to walk far. Everything right outside our doorstep. Would totally recommend and stay here again! Towels provided.

The "receptionist " was rude and too busy on her phone to focus on checking me in. Floors were all wet all the time. I had to go through police to even get to the hostel area because its a muslim only area. Which, with me not being from here, i didnt realize when i booked. Random people would scream at me and say i couldn't be there because i wasnt Muslim. The room was nasty and falling apart and there was a HUGE pile of dirty laundry piled up just like, right there in the room. I booked two nights but i stayed with a friend the first night and was honestly worried about my luggage i kept in my room because the whole hostel and room was open and unlocked and accessible to anybody. This whole place just felt unsafe. The next day i left early didnt even stay the 2nd night. i just couldn't.

There was one 2m square toilet, with a theoretical showerhead right next to it on the wall. The door was a concertina one that did not securely lock. I did not use the shower, and didn't hear anyone else using it while there.There was no provision to put or hang clothes or towel. The paper towel dispenser next to the hand sink was empty the whole time. No cloth to wipe up in kitchen Best things about this hostel were the generous breakfast, and particularly, location, location, location.
