Voted number 1 hostel for Israel in July & Sept 2009 from customers, for the sake of convenience, cost and little extras (like free wi fi), this place is recommended as one of the best budget choices in the Old City just in the center of all quarters in a quite street highest building in the city giving you phenomenal views highly recommended by all guide books ro..

CHEAP .. SAVE .. CHEAP..
We do have outdoor roof accommodation (ON SEASON FROM MAY TO OCT) when booking the cheapest dorm you will be sleeping on the roof so be prepared for an adventure as this is the most famous roof in all Israel for the view that it offers and dirt cheap for less than 9$ you will sleep comfortably including free internet.
Prices are per person per night.
