We are both architects living and studying in Jerusalem .
Host people from around the world
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Insgesamt ist alles sehr gut fußläufig zu erreichen. Vor und während des Aufenthalts waren Barak und Idan sehr hilfsbereit und haben mit Tipps rund um Israel und Jerusalem den Aufenthalt zu einem Erfolg geführt.
The apartment is located in a good position, 5 minutes from Mahane Yehuda market and not too far from the central bus station and the old town. Barak and Idan are excellent hosts, friendly and helpful in providing information upon anything. I enjoyed the stay, recommended.
Barak and Idan's place is located right on the edge of the famous Mahane Yehuda market. What a treat! It's also an easy walking distance from the central bus station and old city. We had our own room with clean linens that smelled really nice. Barak and Idan are great hosts with clear communications and provided us with lots of good recommendations of places to eat and drink. I also got to learn some interesting Israelie culture from them. They are very fun to chat with. Finally, they ensured that we get to the Tel Aviv airport at wee hours of the morning by reserving a taxi to the airport in advance and connecting with the taxi driver about pick up location at 3am in the morning! I am so grateful for everything. I highly recommend their place for anyone that wants to visit Jerusalem.
Idan and Barak were lovely hosts. As I had hoped, they provided me with many recommendations regarding restaurants and places to see during my stay, all of which were gratefully appreciated. They also provided me with wonderful companionship in the evenings; for it was very easy to establish a rapport with. If I wanted alone time, it was fine; and if I wanted time with them, it was welcome, too. Their apartment was very tidy; in fact, they seem to clean it continuously. The bed was very comfortable and the experience of lying in it was, of course, enhanced when Shemi the cat would wander in if I left the door ajar. He was a great addition; his playfulness was certainly enjoyable. Also, the apartment location is great. If you’d like to go to the Israel Museum or any place thereabouts, you can easily walk there; same for Jaffa Gate in the Old City. When I return to Jerusalem, I would be pleased to stay with them again.
Me and my boyfriend stayed in Barak & Idan apartment for 3 nights! The room was very comfortable and really cleaned! (also the sheared bathroom) charming balcony. location near the market and the center! They were friendly and they give us some interesting spot to visit.
Shimi the cat is wonderful
Barak and Idan were great hosts, very happy to chat with us and answer any questions we had. Their home was clean and cosy in a very safe neighbourhood. It was situated close to the yehuda market which was great for inexpensive meals and was a lively spot in the evenings. I would definitely stay again. Many thanks.
Barak and Idan are very sweet and welcoming hosts. They were very helpful in answering to our questions and suggesting where to go and how to get there both inside and outside Jerusalem.
We felt totally confortable in their place which is charming and pretty well located; for sure a great base to explore the city and its surroundings.
And a special bonus was the tasty cupcake for my (Cesare) birthday. Lovely!
If you're looking for a quite place to stay a little outside from the city centre then this room is perfect. Barak and Idan's apartment is super clean and they have everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The market is only 5 min away and the main city centra about a 15 min walk. The boys are always happy to answer any questions and are easy going and friendly.
Great place, central location and very nice hosts. The room was clean and airy and nice and quiet. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Thanks again!
Our 3 day stay in Jerusalem was comfortably spent at Barak and Idan's apartment. They were flexible with check-in and out, accommodating our travel schedules. The central location of the apartment was very convenient. We walked to the Old City, the Supreme Court for a fascinating tour and to the Israel Museum. They were helpful with tourist information and directions for walking. We would recommend this apartment to other travelers.
Our guests Barak and Amalia were polite, friendly and have left the apartment clean and tidy. For us it was fine and we were happy to have met them. Hopefully for them it was a good holiday!
Barak& Idan are both wonderful people, warm and friendly.
Their place is allways spotless and cozy. In addition, Barak is a gifted cook and baker.
So if you are looking for a pleasent stay in the heart of Jerusalem, close to the markets, museams, restaurants& pubs and transportation- this is the place!
