Jerusalem, a city of more than 4000 years old, is the holy place for the three major monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) and the desired capital by both Israelis and Palestinians. No wonder Jerusalem consists of many distinctive parts and there are many Jerusalem hostels to serve the numerous visitors to the city.
The oldest part is the walled Old City, in which you can find four different quarters: the Jewish, the Arab, the Christian, and the Armenian. The Old City is where many of the holy pilgrimage sites are located: the Western (Wailing) wall for the Jews, the Al-Aqsa Mosque for the Muslims, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Via Dolorosa for the Christians, to mention a few. Visitors also like to indulge themselves in shopping at the souqs of the Old City.
West of the Old City is the modern Israeli Jerusalem which includes the official city centre, situated around the Ben Yehuda, Yafo and Ha-Melekh George streets’ triangle. Here some of the locals leading their everyday lives can be observed (as the Old City is heavily occupied by tourists on a regular day). A major attraction in West Jerusalem is the Yad Vashem museum-memorial for the Holocaust victims - you will likely need to take a bus to get there from the city centre.
The Arab East Jerusalem officially belongs to the West Bank. The main route between the Palestinian West Bank and the Muslim part of the Old City goes via the Damascus Gate. Outside the Damascus Gate is the Arab bus terminal at which you can find buses and shared taxis to all the major destinations in the West Bank.
The Israeli Central Bus Station, meanwhile, is located in West Jerusalem. To get there you will need to take a city bus, such as the #1 from outside the Western Wall on the opposite side of the Old City. Otherwise, prepare for a long walk.
When choosing a hostel in Jerusalem, think what are you going to see and where are you going to spend most of your time. You can find hostels in the Old City and in the modern city center as well as in the Israeli Central Bus Station neighborhood.
If you are going to concentrate on the holy pilgrimage sites or use your stay in Jerusalem as a base for exploring the West Bank, you may want to look for a hostel in the Old City. If you are interested in the nightlife and the modern city center, you could do with a place there. And if you want to take side trips to other parts of Israel (e.g. Tel Aviv or the Dead Sea) consider finding a hostel close to the Central Bus station.

"This is a large and prominent hostel that is located directly inside Jaffa Gate. It is an excellent location. The hostel has two floors, the first of which is the second story of the building. The roof of the hostel also offers additional rooms, as well as the option to rent a mattress or tent on the roof itself and sleep under the Jerusalem stars. It is a simple yet quite large hostel, considering it is inside the Old City. Each floor is...
"Situated in the Old Jerusalem, Hebron Hostel has a historic feel about it. Its stone walls are so thick that mobile phone connection won’t work inside the dorm -- good if you want to have a break from the ever-present radiation surrounding us these days. You are likely to meet the friendly Palestinian Arab owner of the hostel and/or his relatives during your stay. He is quite determined about not accepting credit card payments and not...
HI - Jerusalem - Yitzhak Rabin Hostel
"Excellent! I loved the service and the installations were very comfortable." … "Very good, although costly in my opinion -- and it's handicapped friendly!" … "This hostel is really nice! I was kind of suspicious when I booked it, but when I arrived I was surprised at the quietude that surrounded this place. It has a nice parking lot underground and the guards are friendly. Inside, everything is clean, the rooms are cool (we...
Hashimi Hotel & Hostel
"Buried within in the souq of Jerusalem's Old City is El Hashimi Hotel. This hotel is right in the heart of the Old City with an excellent location. You can easily walk anywhere in the Old City (Dome of the Rock, Church of the Holy Sepulcher). Plus, the environment around the Damascus gate, with the souq, fruit stands, and constant crowds is quite remarkable. El Hashimi Hotel is extremely safe in the daytime, but be careful walking around the...
Citadel Youth Hostel
"RUDE STAFF - Stayed at the hostel on the night between April 26-27, 2014. The reception clerk said that they take only cash (nowhere on the website this is indicated. I arrived late. What would have happened if I didn't have any cash?). Gave his 100 NIS for sleeping on the roof (69 NIS). He did not have change for me and said that he will have some in the morning. In the morning he still didn't have change and suggested that I will wait for...
New Swedish Hostel
"The best thing about New Swedish Hostel is the location. There are four quarters in the Old City, and New Swedish hostel is right between the quarters. The only bad thing about the location is that there is no nightlife. You will have to go into the New City for that. So walk around home during the day, and plan a night venture. One note on the location -- don't tell the taxi or other mode of transportation to take you to David Street. (There...
Jaffa Gate Hostel
"Best imaginable location and helpful staff - Out of all the hostel staffs that i have ever seen, these guys were the most keen to help and give good advice, especially the guy whose appearance resembles the Jordanian king a bit. This accommodation is basic, but has a very positive vibe. The location is the best you can imagine, and even more, it is not tucked into the souk (which is dark), it is at the most famous city gate, overlooking the...
The Jerusalem Hostel

One of the best I have ever stayed in." … "Warm staff, reasonably priced, a bit chilly in the winter. - I enjoyed the...

New Palm Hotel & Hostel
"Terrible - I was in a decent room but I was told to to to another room a few days into my stay. The new room had twelve beds and a tiny window to the outside. There was a large window to the lobby area where you could hear everything. The staff was not helpful. The place was dirty and smelled like sewer often. Bed sheets rarely changed. My advice is to spend the extra five dollars to go someplace decent." … "Filthy, bad equipped but in...

"Heritage House in Jerusalem is probably one of the most unique hostels in the world. Heritage House is free to all young Jewish males aged sixteen to twenty-five; although they never ask for "proof," they do have a strict Jewish-only rule and the hostel is managed by an American rabbi. While there, you are strongly encouraged to participate in prayers and educational workshops. If you stay longer than two nights, you are again highly...
HI - Jerusalem - Beit Shmuel Hostel
"Worth for money. A bit noisy - Very good location, 5-10 minutes walk to Jaffa-Gate/Old City, nearby new Mamilla shopping-mall with modern-stile-Restaurants, nearby King David Hotel, nearby car-rentals. It's useful to know, that there is a hostel -- and a hotel-part of Beit Shmuel. We lived in the hotel with 2 adults and 2 children in one room, I think a little bit too small and basic, but with good beds and acceptable clean. The...

New Palm Hostel
"Do. Not. Stay. Here. - Terribly unfriendly management (got offended when we asked to see a room before booking and stayed angry throughout out stay). Dirty (bed linens were used, bathrooms not cleaned). Expensive ($60 for a dirty shoebox-sized chamber without windows). Nothing good to say about this place other than the location -- which simply doesn't make up for all the negatives. We would rather have paid slightly more for a more pleasant...

Mount of Olives Hotel
"This is an amazing hotel. As a Christian pilgrim visiting the Holy Land for the first time, the feeling I had when staying at the Mount of Olives Hotel was overwhelming. Although the mountain itself has changed considerably since the days when our Lord traversed its slopes and slept in its caves, a stay at this modest inn gave me an amazing glimpse and feeling of that time. To give an idea of how well placed this hotel is, the perimeter wall...

Jerusalem is the greatest place I have ever been in my life. You can find the historical places side by side with the modern places.
Jerusalem is stunning, get there any way you can. I backpacked for less than $20 per day.
