“Home comforts in Jerusalem”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

Just spent 3 nights at House 57 in Jerusalem. It reminded me of staying at Grandma's house, which for me is comfortable. I had the room with kitchenette on the lower floor. It's Ok but I really would have liked a window with a view which this room lacks - a bit cave-like. However it was quiet and I slept well which is a big plus when traveling. Nearby is the new light rail, so the old city is minutes away as are many restaurants and bars. A supermarket, ATMs, and a few tasty fast food places are walking distance from the guest house. Nir, the owner, is a nice guy and helpful if you have any questions. He told us about a beach north of Tel Aviv most people don't know about. Since we rented a car, we stopped by this awesome beach on our way to Caesarea and caught some rays for an hour. All in all, nice place to stay in Jerusalem.

The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was ok, and I had a comfortable stay at House57. However, a little bit far away from the Old City, so when there was no transportation service in Jerusalem you had to take a taxi (8 EUR/14 USD).

I spent eight long days in Jerusalem gathering up the household belongings of my daughter and her family, who made a sudden move to Canada for work. Remember the last time you moved? Now imagine that task made on behalf of others: . . . What to ship? What to leave? Where to drop the left items? How to ship the kept items? Gathering packing materials . . .
Nir, Dahliya, and Akrom helped out in SO MANY WAYS: offering suggestions . . . providing used luggage . . . driving me and my packages here and there . . . loaning me a telephone . . . One's own family could not have been more helpful.
This on top of providing a quiet, clean, comfortable room and freshly-made breakfast salads in a location convenient to my errands in north Jerusalem and to my bits of tourist fun in Geula, Ir Attika (the Old City), and Machane Yehuda.
Even when the mission is more work than fun, I love being in Jerusalem and I love staying at House 57.
Unconditionally recommended.

We spent three days in the wonderful room 7. Very friendly owner. Quiet district with good connections to the city, only 5-10 minutes by tram. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend the place for people who like quiet and family places.

Room Tip: definately no 7!

House 57 is located in a quiet neighbourhood though its not very far from the old city. This makes it an excellent place to stay and explore the nearby places. The rooms are well equipped and clean.

Nir and his staff ensure that the guests have a comfortable stay. Breakfast is served each morning and its included in the price.

I would definately recommend this place to stay!

Room Tip: Room 7 is great since it has a great view in the early mrng and late evening. ALos, it has an attic...

Nice private house in a quite place near the metro station. Rooms are not big very but cosy. There is refrigerator, pot, tv, a/c etc. A lot of different things on breakfast which is set even if you are alone in the house. Nice open terrace. There are a lot of places for free parking. The owner is a very nice American, who helped us to find interesting places to visit and answered for planty of our questions, very helpful.

Room Tip: There is an amazing room with a great view on the city for a big company. (there are 2 floors)

House 57 is at best a hostel for students. We were a family of four having booked two rooms 5 months ahead of arrival, looking forward to some sociable and affordable overnight stays at this guesthouse. When we arrived the owner had forgotten about the second bedroom although we had the email confirmation. We were put in a tiny bedroom at first level and a fourth bed were put in. This last bed almost collapsed and all bed sheets were at a very low quality level, not even covering the mattresses. When we at last understood that the strange smell from the tiny bathroom were urine, we decided to move out at 11 o'clock PM and find a new hotel. We are happy the owner never charged us anything.
