Although it's part of the Youth Hostel Association, this guest house is an unbeatable budget choice for families. The stone-and-aluminum lobby opens out onto flower-filled patios with views of Hebrew University. Spartan guest rooms sleep between two and five on narrow single beds, which can be pushed together for couples. Showers are quite small. Try to avoid the older rooms. The Israel Museum is a short walk away, and there are buses nearby headed toward Downtown.
