I like that this place is centralised to everything in East Jerusalem. Its located near to the Damascus Gate and definitely not for the fussy people. Its a good place to stay overnight and explore the city. Definitely there is room for improvements such as the walls that are dusty and rooms that might smell a little. It doesn’t bother me so its fine to me.

I stayed at the Al Arab Hostel for a week way back in 1996, so while on a return trip to Jerusalem last week I stopped by for a nostalgic visit. They are finishing up a major renovation and the place looks amazing. I got the grand tour from the manager, who showed me what they've done to fix it up. The reception is cozy and inviting, the rooms look spotless, and the view of the Temple Mount from the rooftop terrace is stunning. It is still a budget place, so don't expect luxury. But if you are looking for an affordable place to stay in a historic building in the Old City, give it a try.

Lovely atmosphere and great location

We stayed with a group of friends in this hostel for 2 days. The room was really atmospheric and the staff friendly. And the beds were simple but comfortable. If you are looking for a cheap hostel which captures the atmosphere of old city in a room, this will be suitable for you.
