Terribly
Location
Conditions were terrible. Everywhere was dust, dirty floor, I guess it hasn't been cleaned for ages... Worst was dirty and stinky bedclothes. Shower and toilet were also bad: dirt, stain, no warm water. Breakfast= tea and coffee. Don't stay there, if you don't have to do!

They must be kind with customers. they chose
help me to print my boarding pass for free.
No body care of the customer and they don't response customers kindly. It is my first time to know the dormitories bedroom. but I like it, because I met people of different types and cultures. and we respect each other and some time we shared ideas, but no one stay as long as me. Their breakfast was poor. they served the breakfast for their culture without think that they have to be international about that. To understand that different cultures come to the hostel. The breakfast is international every where I go, except in Petra hostel? Why? They take out food before 10am. So if you come at 9:50 you don't take your breakfast but they said they served between 8am to 10am. I saw by myself how they clean this room at 9:45 one day. It bed! The customer is the most important and has to be considered as a king. Thanks to take care of my opinion. I said what I lived.

worst hotel in Jerusalem
the online good thing is the location just close to The King David tower
The worst accomodation in Israel. Dirty, no table, no furniture in the room, very poor breakfast, bathroom with open shower without curtain. Terrible! We stay only one night instead of the two already paid with no refund.Who decide to give them two Stars? I've taken also pictures but I can't upload them.
