Liked: Расположение супер, кухня удобная, всё есть, даже питьевая вода, чай,кофе, и т д. Тихо и чисто

Disliked: Очень тесные туалеты и души с пластиковыми дверями-гармошкой. Но учитывая стоимость-это нормально.

Liked: I felt the staff were friendly, helpful and honest. I liked the fact that the kitchen was open until 12midnight, and that free hot drinks were offered. I used the internet on 2 occasions at their modest cost of 4NIS for 30min. I was satisfied with the general level of service.

Disliked: The toilets were quite small and the dorm area a bit cramped for space. Sometimes there were converations in the dorm rather late at night.

Liked: The owner has a strong character and is a very knowledgeable man. He even knows the triad society of Hong Kong and Korea! I read negative comments of him before my stay but it turned out he was very welcoming and funny like a father to us. He made us delicious chicken from an Arabic oven and we shared views on religions in the heart of old town Jerusalem. It was a small old hostel (don't expect a high standard) but the atmosphere made it cozy and homey.

Disliked: The shower is very very weak but for the price and location and atmosphere it is tolerable.

Liked: - Отличное предложение за самую низкую цену. Расположен в 2 мин ходьбы от Храма Гроба Господня, в старом городе - так что все рядом.- Интересно пожить в одном из исторических зданий старого города.- Бесплатный чай-кофе-вода, хороший бесплатный WiFi, удобная кровать, есть холодильник и вентилятор в комнате.- Без проблем заехали в шаббат , да к тому же глубокой ночью с пт на сб. Несложно найти.

Disliked: Крохотные душевые и туалеты(2 и 3 шт , соответственно), слабоватый напор воды.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Too many things to mention but immediately put off by the very bad attitude of the guy at the reception. No real windows in the dorm and looked very dirty. I moved out as fast as possible, losing my payment for one night. The sacrifice was worth making.
