I felt welcome and comfortable from the very first minute. Had lovely chats with the family with a lemonade and tea. Dani took me to his favourite Shawarma and Knafeh place and I even joined the family for the church ceremony on Sunday.

I was in Bethlehem with my friend for only one night, but we would definitely stay longer next time. The hostel gave us a very warm welcome and we had very good conversations with the owner! The room was very clean and we felt very comfortable. Definitely recommended and we look forward to next time!

From the moment we stepped into the Hostel we felt more than welcome. Our hosts were very nice and helped us a lot by telling us how to get around the city, where to have the best falafel and which shop sells the best arabic coffee. The rooms were clean and cozy, while our room, additionaly, had a big balcony which we enjoyed a lot. The location of the hostel is also very convenient as it is only a 5 minutes walk from the city center. I can only recommend for anyone to stay in the House of Peace during their visit to Bethlehem!

The owner of the House of Peace Hostel are super welcoming, friendly and open minded. We had some very interesting conversations, got drinks and coffee. The Hostel itself is clean and comfy and I felt at home immediately. I would also recommend it to single-travelers, because you will always find someone to talk to or who helps you out with some good recommodations. Also, it is very well located and everything you'd like to see in Bethlehem is within walking distance.

The hostel is run by a very friendly family. They were so happy to welcome us as their guests and we had some nice and interesting talks with them. The house is cozy and the facilities were well cleaned. It is located close to the church of nativity. They even gave us a better room for the same price because it was free. The owners are also qualified tour guides and offer tours to different places in palestine. Full recommendation :)
