The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Stay Inn Hostel is great for solo and small-group travelers. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hostel gives a welcoming vibe -- it is a large hostel but not overwhelming. Breakfast is usually not included but can be added on to your stay for a small fee. The breakfast is great value for money and is cooked by the hostel staff themselves. There is a communal laundry that you can use for free but you'll need to purchase washing powder separately. There is a great selection of books for visitors to read or exchange and some board games for guests to share among themselves.
In regard to the city’s sights and main points of attraction, the hostel is well located. It is easy to find and close to the tram and bus stops. The hostel provides maps and staff are always ready to answer any questions about how and when to get to places in and around Jerusalem.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel dorms are quite new and modern. Each bed is private (curtained) and provides guests with their own reading light (funky technology) and wireless charging pad, as well as power point and USB charger. Renovations are currently underway on half of the building, although this does not cause issues for those staying in the hostel.
The twelve-bed dorm provides guests with their own toilet and bathroom (inside the dorm room), which is spacious and always clean. Each dorm bed has an allocated locker, which is decent in size and has the ability to be locked.
The hostel gives guests a variety of spaces in which to hang out. These spaces vary in size and mood. There is a bar area on the ground floor that is used by night; there is also the rooftop area, which has shaded parts and is open to the sky. There is vegetation as well as chairs and tables where guests can mingle or enjoy the breakfast. Inside, there is a reading space and common kitchen. The kitchen is relatively spacious and there are dining tables for guests to use.
Overall, this hostel is well set-up, and it is modern and quite clean. There are plenty of opportunities for guests to involve themselves with activities or to keep to themselves.
