  • Good location and friendly staff and guests all around. If you want a hostel with a lot of amenities and services this is not for you though. The bathrooms smelled because the showers weren't separated and right next to the toilets and waste bins. There also wasn't any toilet paper or soap most of the time. Some of the bedrooms don't have any windows since they're located in the old city. Perks are the rooftop view, location and helpfulness of the staff.

  • The staff at the Citadel Youth Hostel has taken great care of me the past 5 years. I don't have a lot of money and this hostel helps me enjoy Jerusalem once a year, and stay within a minimal budget!

  • The location was really great, the hostel looks also very nice but the conditions there are bad. Rooms are too small for so many beds, there is even no place to stay in some rooms and the bathrooms are dirty and very old, some doors can not be closed, no warm water and it stinks.
