Perfect Jerusalem Budget Option
I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a budget option in a fantastic area of Jerusalem. It's tucked away from the busy street, clean, comfy, has good breakfast, and has a fun common area with a outdoor deck.

A good stay
Nice Hostel, good price and very good location [short walk to the Old City]. We had a room with private bathroom. The room was pretty small, but that was fine, as we just used it to sleep at night. There was a little too much noise at night when light rail works. Breakfast OK. We arrived around noon, before the official check in time. There was no one at the front desk and after waiting for 5 minutes we looked around and found a worker who helped us store the luggage before checking in. One of the guests at the Hostel opened the locked door for us - to be able to get into the Hostel's front desk area. The Hostel has a very nice terrace outside, with plenty of live plants. All on all, a good value, a good stay.

I stayed here twice within a week. I checked out Friday morning and came back Saturday night. Our first room was excellent but our second was cramped and did not have space for the two us.
