This is not a luxury hotel, but if you're looking for a simple, inexpensive and decent place to stay in Jerusalem, this is your choice. I had a two-beds room, a very basic one, with separated toilet and bath. Nothing special, but I was quite satisfied given the democratic price. However, I would recommend the hostel staff to improve the Wi-Fi connection and to put some simple carpets on the floor. Apart from that, the hostel is located in a very quiet, very cozy inner suburb that is not too far away from the Old City, something like 2 kilometers, so I often opted to go there and back again by foot. Besides, there's a good access to public transport system in that street, and a guest can easily catch a bus to Bethlehem or to the city in the Hebron Road, which is also something like 5 mins walk away from the hostel. There are a couple of tiny groceries on that street where a guest can buy some food, which is cool. Besides, a good thing about the hostel is that it has some nice outdoor tables and deck-chairs where a guest can have a pleasant evening coffee and an open-air supper after having an active day in the city. So in general, I say that I liked the hostel and its location, so if I ever go to Jerusalem again, I will most probably decide to stay at the Beit Ben-Yehuda again.

This guest house's location is very strategic. It can be reached with 2 buses from the Tel Aviv Ben Gurion airport, namely bus #485 and #7. The bus stops at Ein Gedi Street, arrive at the front door after 2 minutes walk. Going to US Embassy can be done with one bus within 5 minutes commuting from the same street. Visit to Israel Museum and Bible Land Museum with one bus is also very convenient. Jerusalem Old City and Bethlehem also can be reached with one Arab bus after walking down into next major intersection. Outdoor food court (First Station), post office and Hadar Mall can be visited by walking with mini markets along the way. Room was clean, but found a yellow-old-pillow and some hairs on the cover. A towel looks dirty and old as well. The room was furnished with 1 table, 1 chair, 2 beds and 2 additional beds hanging on the left and right wall. 2 sachet of shampoo and 2 small soaps were provided as well. It has 2 separate rooms for bath and toilet with a sink between. Stinky smell from the toilet, additional room refresher will be helpful. A very helpful folder was found at the table, giving information about Shabbat, places to go and how to get there along with buses prices. It has elevator to go from the kitchen (downstair), entrance, level 1 and 2. Water dispenser can be found at the dining room in front of the kitchen, but the faucet just looks old and has many mineral deposit. Room service is given daily with towel change every other day. It has 10 rooms in the guest house building. Because the rooms are close to each other, any baby cries, children playing, phone talks, and conversations in the alley can be heard from inside the room.

We had a very basic and compact room with 3 bunk beds and separate toilet and bath rooms. It included towels and soap/shampoo. Did not include TV or refrigerator, but there is a mutual one in the kitchen that you can use. Nice and basic breakfast for 20NIS for as person that you need to order in ahead. No private parking, but was not a problem to find around. Very quiet place. The feeling of staying in historical place is also nice (the house belonged to family of Eliezer ben Yehuda). It was a little bit difficult to find a person for reception because they don't have 24/7, but in specific hours. Therefore I recommend to contact them in ahead by phone (especially for late check-in) and to ask all the questions and requests like reserving breakfast. For my opinion it is a good budget solution for basic bed and breakfast.
