Hostel has a good environment during the day and night with good service. Location is close to metro and Mahane Yehuda Market, which is a plus. Also, there are some stores close by. The breakfast was ok, but we had to wash our own dishes after eating, which we did not like.
The room was small and the bed was supposed to be for two, but it was just two beds placed together and that created a space between the beds, which made it uncomfortable for two people sleeping together. The bed sheets also had sand on them.
The shower was very small, making it difficult for one to take a bath. The shower curtain would get stuck to the body when taking a bath. Also in order to have hot water, we had to activate a timer 30 minutes before taking a bath. This was not good, since we had to plan 30 minutes ahead to be able to take a bath. The toilet, once it was flushed a first time, it took a lot of time to refill and if it was not completely full, the flushing pressure was very very low, making simple flushing difficult.
Even though the hostel has all of these opportunities, it would still charge us $107 per night. This is a high cost considering that hotels close to the Old City were only $60 more per night. The hostel should cost a lot less than what it charges per night.
The hostel needs improvements to be a better bargain for the price it charges per night. I would recommend it for the location and environment, but
