I stayed at Beit Shmuel during a two day recorder workshop. Everything was fine. The room clean and comfortable. No view from the windows and the room is not huge, but quiet. Breakfast fine. Not a Vow. Its not a place for staying around the whole day, but very central when visiting Jerusalem. One can get to many places walking and there are plenty of buses that would take one anywhere.

Location good. Staff nice. If your in and out its OK. Towels very old. Breakfast area dirty. I would stay elsewhere. No help from staff with luggage. Dan was really nice. Not very clean hotel. Parking not great

Not cheap, not attractive, not a pleasant experience

I know it's a hostel and that I should have no expectations. But there is minimalist and there is Spartan, and this is the latter. First the good things: the airconditioner was ok. There is a TV in the room (which I didn't even switch on, I presume it works). No soap in the bathroom (although...

I know it's a hostel and that I should have no expectations. But there is minimalist and there is Spartan, and this is the latter. First the good things: the airconditioner was ok. There is a TV in the room (which I didn't even switch on, I presume it works). No soap in the bathroom (although there was shampoo and conditioner and lotion). I used shampoo to wash my hands. No glasses to drink from, not even a plastic cup. No tissues. No shower curtain, no floor mat. No wifi. Don't even think of parking, although there are pay lots fairly nearby. The room was tiny, but as I was alone, that was not a problem. There is no elevator so if you have heavy bags .... Breakfast was barely ok. But I didn't expect more. Surly staff in the room. Front desk staff were more polite. I could accept all this if the price was reasonable. But at close to 500 shekels, it was bad.

This hostel was one of the worst travel experiences of my life. The location is excellent, but that is the only thing going for this "establishment". Although the the prices are cheap by Jerusalem standards, there is no excuse for such poor conditions. The Ministry of Health should shut this place down! The bathroom was...

This hostel was one of the worst travel experiences of my life. The location is excellent, but that is the only thing going for this "establishment". Although the the prices are cheap by Jerusalem standards, there is no excuse for such poor conditions. The Ministry of Health should shut this place down! The bathroom was smelly with mildew. I scratched myself all night because of nocturnal visitors of the multilegged kind. In the morning, all I wanted was a hot breakfast and some decent coffee. I received neither. We promptly checked out, canceling the rest of our stay, and went to a five star hotel in order to recover from this disgusting trap.

Convenient, close to transportation and major insights in Jerusalem, affordable and clean. However, the many community events happening in the same building may be distracting at times.
