Small, cheap and cheerful, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
In a great location and you can go up to the roof on a night to get some absolutely stunning photographs of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.

I landed in Israel, and instead of feeling the general relief and comfort of being surrounded by culture with which I feel much more connected than the one from which I had come, I felt confused and misplaced. I had so entirely accepted the Argentine way of life that I what had previously felt so right, now just felt awkward.
