There's a reason we're Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor's number one hostel in town! Our 100% Palestinian staff offer backpackers and groups an amazing view of Jerusalem, proper heating in winter, lightning fast free wifi, budget tours & hikes, all bus stations within 300 meters, the best hostel kitchen you've ever used, a superb fruit and vegetable market next door, and guaranteed hot water with high pressure showers. We offer you access to information so you can create your own impressions of the political situation, but we don't push any ideology on our guests! Area D guarantees an authentic, off-the-beaten path experience that you'll be sure to write home about.
Ramallah is much cheaper than nearby Jerusalem (30 minutes by bus from Damascus Gate), without any Shabbat inconveniences, and a ton of restaurants/bars/clubs.
Despite the adverse reputation West Bank has in the media, it has a little known charm about it that draws in travelers worldwide. Whether it's animated street vendors, lively conversation over hummus, or beautiful days spent in olive groves, you are sure to be captivated by the people and setting.
Be careful, after a few days here you might not want to leave.
