I stayed at Al Arab for a few days. The location: amazing. Situated close to the Damascus Gate and major sites. It has a shared kitchen for guests to use; around the hotel there are a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables, bread and meat for sale. There is also a fridge, in case need to store anything that needs refrigeration. The room: beautiful, simple but nice decor. The bed was good. Staff is very courteous and offered me tea and coffee. I accepted the tea which the girl made for me. Fresh mint, quite delicious. Other people have mentioned that Al Arab is not the cleanest. They just got a new member to assist with management (the same who offered tea; very nice girl, speaks English really well), who is pointing out the issues and ensuring that the cleaning staff does the job well, then goes to supervise. My room wasn't quite ready when I arrived, she came in for a check of the room while we checked in, and personally cleaned the bathroom for us (we were coming and she was leaving). So the hostel is putting the effort. I'll definitely come back.

Centralised!

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...

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.
