"Right in the old City" Petra Hotel & Hostel Tip by Sharon

Petra Hotel & Hostel, Jerusalem: 148 reviews and 2 photos

  Was taken from the hoste's roof
by Sharon

Pretty famouse hostel for backpackers or none backpackers.
Its Location is Great, just in the exit from the old Market and near a few meters walk from the Citadel. Absolutely fantastic Location.

As about service or prices i cant help, i haven't stayed there but been there on March 2005 and went to their roof to take some photos of the old city. Fantastic.

I've seen some of its guests sitting in the balcony of their rooms enjoying the atmosphere of the old city, to be honest it looked really nice and tempting.
