Liked: The most knowledgeable, helpful, friendliest reception ever! Great location, right in the old city, very easy to reach. Nice hot shower, all very clean, great view from the roof top, quiet place.

Disliked: It's very cold at night, no heater of any kind.

Liked: The location could not be better, just by the famous Jaffa gate, near the tram station that will bring you to the central bus station. Staff is also extremely friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The room I stayed in was one of the worst places I stayed. Filthy, dark, uncomfortable and not pleasant. The bathroom was barely separated from the room and I highly doubt about cleanliness of the sheets. Helpfulness of the staff although weights off the unpleasantness of the place. By my opinion one of the worst values for money.

Liked: The staff is really really nice and helpful, they gave us all the information we needed very precisely. The location is also quite perfect, right in the old city, close to everything.

Disliked: It was quite dirty... The sheets and mattresses were really old, the bathroom inside of the room was disgusting, the whole building is really old. The room we stayed in had no windows and was really humid. But all of this I could deal with, and the nice staff and good location would have made it pay off. The real real trouble was that there were cockroaches. Often. Mostly they would show up dead, but seriously, that's something you do not want to see in the place you sleep in. If it had happened once I would have tried to believe it was a special case, but throughout our 3 nights stay we saw about 7 or 8 cockroaches. Really not cool. In spite of the crappy rooms and bathrooms I would have reccomended it to students with a low budget, but, really, cockroaches is a no go.
