Not suited for those who sleep early ”

Try to avoid the private rooms that are directly above their in-house bar. We are travellers who prefer to sleep early and while the hostel has great facilities, it was definitely not a quiet place. It only quieten down at 3am at night which made it tough for us to get any proper sleep. It’s wonderful that the staff are made of volunteers but unfortunately, not all were friendly or helpful. Facilities are clean and in good condition.

Dear Samantha, thank you for your review! We appreciate your valuable feedback as it helps us identify the areas we can improve within the guest experience. I'm sorry to hear you had a bad night's sleep because of the noise from the common area. I wish you would have addressed this with us as we do offer earplugs at the front desk which could have helped. Hope your stay in Jerusalem was otherwise enjoyable and hope to see you back some day. All the best, Cinema Hostel

hostel ze wspaniałymi przestrzeniami wspólnymi”

Jestem bardzo zadowolona. Miałam pokój 2-osobowy - mały z łazienką, tv z dostępem do apple tv. Pokój w zupełności wystarczający, bo przestrzeń wspólna świetna, duża i przestronna, z różnymi zakamarkami - każdy znajdzie coś dla siebie i w środku i na tarasie na zewnątrz. Lokalizacja świetna. Gorąco polecam.

Acceptable”

I don't think I've ever stayed somewhere where I have to get all sheets including duvet cover and put them on the bed. Attempting to do this on a top bunk is difficult, and also unnecessary, everyone hates putting sheets on beds, it's the most stressful thing to do and you have to pay good money to do it. The staff then gave me the wrong bed so had to go up and down stairs and check. The beds make so much noise when people move around In bed and because dorms have lots of people it's very noisy. Breakfast is the only saving grace here.

Obviamente nos quejamos, pero ya perdimos el desayuno. Es verdad que si te va la movida hippie, que a nosotros nos va, tiene su encanto, pero por el resto se echa a perder, esta muy descuidado y da la sensación de que no siempre fue así.

Esta muy bien situado, cerca esta el tranvía pero se puede ir a la puerta de Jaffa andando unos 10 minutos. El personal de recepción nos ayudaron en todas nuestras dudas. Reservamos la cena del Shabat en el hostel y fue un acierto por que la comida estaba buenísima. En la terraza disponen de un bar muy agradable. Al lado hay supermercados y locales de comida, también puedes cocinar tu propia comida. No limpian la habitación a diario aunque en recepción me dijeron que si pero cuando solicite cambio de toallas me las proporcionaron y arreglaron la habitación. En cinco días solo la arreglaron dos veces. Después de desayunar tienes que limpiar lo que has utilizado. La habitación era pequeña y el baño estaba bien
