We are very centrally located in the heart of Jerusalem.

From the 'Ben-Gurion' airport 2 options:
1. Shuttle taxi of a company called 'Nesher' - costs 65 ILS. Waits out of the terminal. Fills up and leaves every 15-30 minutes. Give the driver the Hostel address - Jaffa 44, and he will drop you around the corner (Jaffa st. itself is the tram street).
2. Bus #485 of a company called 'Afiqim' - costs 16 ILS. Leaves once an hour from the airport. Get off at the Jerusalem Central bus station.
From the Jerusalem central bus station - you can take the tram - 4 stations to 'Jaffa Center' station (direction: Heil Haavir). Tram ticket costs 5.90 ILS, buy at the station platform machines.

By car:
Paid parking avilable at 'Harav Agan' st - 30 seconds walk from the Hostel - Jaffa st. 44.
Free parking at 'Mount Herzl' under the tram station. From there 15-20 minutes in the tram (9 stations) to 'Jaffa center' station, and from there 30 seconds walk down the street to the Hostel.

Located Near

We are located at the historic beautiful Zion Square, which is really the heart of Jerusalem's city center. everything you will need - from the best tourist areas and historic locations, to bars, restaurants, shops is just 2-10 Minutes walk from the hostel.
