A fantastic hostel in a great location in Bethlehem. Its actually the family home of a friendly Palestinian couple so its obviously cared for with great detail. The hostel is extremely well maintained and clean and the owners are very attentive and helpful to travellers needs. Highly recommended for your stay in Bethlehem :)

A great place to stay. The manager was attentive and helpful. Hid ostentatious, who live in the hostel, are friendly and encouraging people. I strongly recommend this place for a great price, wonderful location and positive environment for the whole experience of visiting Bethkehem.

Perfect location, 7 minutes walking to Nativity church. The owners are ver warm and kind. They helped us in each question or request asked. Even helped us getting a taxi to the northern frontier to Jordan. You will feel the real palestinian family. The room was very clean also the bathroom. This family will be in our hearts forever.

Paul who runs the bookings speaks excellent English and is super helpful with a dry sense of humour. His parents still live in the downstairs of hostel and it is good to talk to them and meet Palestinian people. They are all so welcoming and hospitable. The hostel will do laundry, it has a balcony and is super clean. Please...

Comfortable place, in a quiet area. The owners are extremely helpful and welcoming and a pleasure to talk to. Would unreservedly recommend. If you're lost getting there, ask at the olive wood factory near Manger's Square and they can direct you.
