After much research (including some experts Podcast recommendations), this was my first YMCA stay. And it can’t be beat. *The * best place to stay in Jerusalem, unless you want to spend mega bucks. Beautiful building. 10 min easy walk to Old City. Near grocery stores, New City restaurants and everything you need. Right across the street from the King David Hotel. For the price, the value is the best in town. I wouldn’t recommend staying in the Old City.
