  • 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.

  • The bathrooms are too small and not always superclean. It would be nice to have access to the internet from all the rooms.

  • The hostel was perfect. Do not give your passport to the staff, keep it in your hands while showing it to the staff. our passports have been demaged, because the receptionist hammered a stapler through the front of our passports!
