  • What do I know from good or average. I expected more in a "private" room, than a bed & 4 walls and nothing else in the room..... But this and ALL "modern web sites.... I was only n the Hostel for 10 hours, but I already got TWO reminders to review my "newsworthy" experience within 24 hours of my leaving.. Unnecessary stress!

  • The hostel is awful. It's really dirty. I have never been in such place. If you are ready to live on Arabic Bazaar then GOOD LUCK! A advice you to live in different (more clean and civilized) part of the city. In these part of the city you can't use your card, for example, or find good restaurant or shops.

  • Very clean. Perfectly located outside of Damascus gate. Very close to bus or light rail. There is a market downstairs, money changer. The breakfast was great. Will definitely stay here again

  • I enjoyed the staff very much and the location was in the middle so a nice walk to town. My only issue were the prayers a million times a day, the windows could have been a little more secure. Other than that, it was a quiet stay and the it was peaceful.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at the Palm hostel in January 2015, the manager was friendly and helpful, I had a fun time with the other guests too, great value for money with the best location, the hot water was warm a couple of times, bathrooms could have been cleaner otherwise the place was generally clean, I would stay here again. Jerusalem is a very spiritual place and I enjoyed my time there!

  • The helpfulness & openness of the staff is always appreciated by travellers so for that reason alone I feel happy returning to the Palm Hostel in the future. The cleanliness of the bathrooms is the only holdback which is partly due to the large amount of people staying in the hostel part of the building. I also liked the extra blankets being available because that was a better solution for shared dorms with alot of guests who prefer sleeping in different temperatures. Thanks for the experience!
