Excellent base for a visit to Jerusalem
After a long wait for checking in Everything else during my stay went very well. The location is excellent being close to the tram stop and an easy 10 min stroll from the gates to the Old City. One thing to note is that breakfast is from 8-10am and almost all tours begin before that so I wasn’t able to have the breakfast that I paid for on most days.

First and foremost, this is a hostel. If you're familiar with the hostel environment *and* you enjoy a hostel environment, then the environment is pretty standard. Shared kitchen, shared showers, shared bathrooms, etc. This is a good and not great feature, where sometimes you'll meet amazing people and have great encounters; other times...well...yeah. So I specify to put that out of the way, as in, I'm not basing my review on the fact that the hostel environment is loud and sometimes unpleasant. If you don't like hostels, noises, etc., then know this is going to be a typical hostel in that regard. However, a bonus here is the staff and volunteers are pretty epic. I'd give the workers a 5 star rating. The breakfast is salad, eggs, tahini, bread, cereal, etc. The capsules are as noisy if not noisier than the dorms, so beware if you choose one because of quietness; however, they are private. I generally felt safe at the Cinema, and the location is epic and perfect if you want to be in the heart of the City. A few things around the hostel don't work exactly perfectly, and there's a bar upstairs that has a big party on Thursdays that attracts creepy guys (who thankfully don't live in the hostel, but beware single ladies). Great experience overall. A few glitches, but again, it's a hostel. I'd recommend to anyone who is cool with hostels, and this comes from someone who has stayed in many Israeli hostels.
