We present very accurate values for the bound state energy eigenvalues by solving the radial Schrodinger equation for the Hulthen potential within the framework of the asymptotic iteration method (AIM) for any l states and for different screening parameters without using any approximations required by other methods. The AIM results are compared with the results of the numerical integration, the generalized pseudospectral, the supersymmetry, the variational and the shifted 1/N expansion methods and they are in very good agreement for different screening parameter, delta, values.
