Area D is one of only a handful of international standard hostels in the West Bank and by far the best for visitors to Ramallah. Its spotless dorms and double rooms are basic, but the shared lounge is a great place to relax, meet other travellers and plan excursions.
The hostel is located above Ramallah's service taxi garage, opposite the bus station for Jerusalem. Area D is a reliable place to organise tours to other cities, including Hebron, and staff are a wealth of information about travel inside the West Bank and beyond.
Situated in a central location in Ramallah, Area D Hostel offers free WiFi. It features a 24-hour front desk and a snack bar that offers light snacks, as well as a large shared lounge, kitchen, and luggage storage area. Budget historical tours are also available, including to Hebron and Bethlehem. All rooms are simply furnished and are fitted with tiled floors. Each one offers a shared bathroom with a shower. Apartments have private bathrooms. The hostel is within a minute walk from Jerusalem Bus Station. Tel Aviv International Airport is 40 minutes by car. Free public parking is possible at a location nearby.
