very practical and best location, just good for back packers, students, person looking for just a place to sleep. Not very clean (also due to lot of construction/repair work around), no parking close by, provides just basic needs.
We were amazed at how good of a time we had after reading some negative reviews. The manager, Hazem, is a class act, helpful, and true to his word. We had good showers, decent breakfast, the World Cup on TV, and a nice room for a good price. I would recommend this place and would certainly stay here again. The area is a trip, with a fruit stand at the entrance, do yourself a favor and get some fruit to go along with your breakfast. Jerusalem is an amazing city, we had a great time!
HI, I really enjoyed my time at petra hostel (after booking I was aprehensive after finding some bad reviews).My dorm was clean and had a view of Jerusalem- amazing to wake up to! The bathroom was in good condition and staff were very friendly and helpful. The place was brimming with character, and the roof is amazing. For a budget pick this has to be it: charctetr, amazing location (straddling old and new city), friendly service and good traveler vibe. I'm not used to hostels but i love petra
Location, Room with balcony, Great views! The staff were very friendly. If this place were renovated and turned into a nice/ small hotel it would be awesome. They said that the room would have an air conditioner...it did not. We had to keep windows open all night and the streets are very loud. I sweated a lot that night...rough night of sleep. Breakfast was bad...I lost my appetite when I saw it. Glad we only had to stay one night. What we call "roughin it".
the Petra hostel is one of the most spectacular hostels ,my grandfather had told me of his adventures here in Israel when he was young that he stayed here and had such an amazing time,i feel my stay here brought me closer to my family ,amazing place
nothing, it was terrible! no service, teribble hygineic standard, breakfast und breakfastroom indiscutable, poor relation price- what you get, much better austrian hospice-less price than petra hostel!, petra hostel must be closed!
