Golden Gate Hostel Inn
Reviewed 20 January 2014

It is a simple but clean and good hostel. The bed is confortable and the shower is warm. Great breakfast. One of the best locations and places to stay in jerusalem, once is inside the Old Town and as a better price than the other hostels. The bad thing is that is not possible to book on booking websites (like hostel world) and when you call the staff dont speak english very well. But maybe it can be done by email. Really recommend it.

We ran into this place by accident, that was a lucky shot. Although you might miss the real travellers experience because of missing a central hang out, this place is located in the centre of a very busy muslim market in the old city. That makes up more than enough and really gives you the travellers adventure of being in the political en religious centre of the world.
Very decent staffing, decent breakfast and reasonable clean rooms. Although being a bit noisy, that will not matter since you will be nackered after a long day af strawling through blazing old Jersualem

I've been in and out of Golden Gate over the last few weeks. They are most accommodating! There are no hassles with storing my bag while I'm out of town a couple of days. They welcome me back with warm hospitality.
It was a little hard to find on my first visit because I expected to see "streets" in the Old City. Hint: Think crowded walkways when you are looking for Beit al HaBad street. Better yet, take a copy of the map from their website http://www.goldengate4.com/ and ask people with your map in hand.
Free wi-fi. Close to ATM and restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff. They can connect you with Mike's Center for tours, electronics help, etc without charging extra fees.
Golden Gate is remarkably quiet considering it's in the Old City. I'll continue to use it as my "go to" hotel/hostel/inn!

Great location in the heart of the old city, within walking distance to all places. Great clean rooms with warm water, all rooms have Ac. The hotel staff are very friendly. The free breakfast is a treat, fresh fruit and local dishes. If i was to go back i would choose this hotel again.
the hotel has a great balcony which has wifi, a great place to hang out and relax at night.

Room Tip: would highly recommend this for families, couples or on your own.

I loved staying at Golden Gate Inn. I stayed in a double room that had air conditioning - extremely affordable. It was very clean! The communal areas are awesome - tables, outdoor seating, sofa chairs, etc. There was no breakfast while we were there, so make sure and double check that you'll get it if it's important to you. The owners/workers were wonderful - very helpful when our luggage arrived late and in finding transportation for us back to the airport. The location is a bit difficult to find for your first time. Through Damascus Gate, when the road splits - take the one to the right. After a minute or two of walking, start looking up - they have one sign on the roof of the market. It's the second or third alley on the right up the stairs and then on the left. (If you have heavy luggage, you will have to get it up stairs) Ask for help if you get lost.

Safe, friendly and economical option for staying in Jerusalem. Allows you to stay in the middle of everything so you can absorb the unvarnished version of the Old City. Accommodations are simple but practical. Breakfast leaves a little to be desired but in the end it is adequate. It is NOT 50 meters from the Damascus Gate as advertised…it is more like 250 meters. Therefore, if you have bags to drag from the Damascus gate, be prepared for a challenging bout through this Quarter’s high energy, push-and-shove but yet delightfully colorful Muslim market. Inn is very difficult to find; marked by only one sign directly overhead the market pathway, about 50 meters north of the Hashimi Hotel which is well marked and worth a look.

My experience with this hotel is the worst in my life. I am an avid traveler. It was unclean. The bathrooms were beyond unclean. The cot was so bad I could only sleep a few hours a night. The foreign men who smoked the pipes, that smell made it hard to breath. The wifi was good and that and the location was the only positive thing. It truly ruined my trip to stay in such an unclean place.

Room Tip: Please take my advise and pay more and stay elsewhere
