Great location, very close to central bus station as well to old town. Great breakfast and really cool common area.


Abraham hostel is one of the best I have stayed in! The location just of Jaffa Rd, and an easy 15-minute walk down to the old city is awesome. Staff are very friendly and helpful and there are great activities on every night of the week, great for meeting other people at the hostel. the breakfast was particularly nice and good value for money, I will definitely be back!


Staff was amazing!!! People were very nice. Truly a wonderful experience.

Excellent. Extremely well organised hostel.


Very in the heart of Jerusalem, just liked the hostel right from the start. Everything is just organized and the staff was very lovely and helpful. They are also offering tours right next to the "reception". What I loved the most was the dinner at shabbat were they tried to explain and live the spirit of shabbat. Would definitely come back there again. Good job, guys!


Lovely hostel with a great atmosphere and community. Meals are in a communal dining hall that brings everyone together and makes it feel like a family. Conveniently located on a light rail stop. Totally walkable to the bus station and Old City as well. Would absolutely stay here again.


Great place to meet people. Very active common room and the shared meals are awesome. Not the most spotless hostel I've seen, but clean enough.


This hostel is amazing. The breakfast spread was delicious, above and beyond any other hostel breakfast we have had. The location is perfect. Close to all the sights and the main streets of Jerusalem. This hostel also offers great tours of Jerusalem and Israel.


We stayed here for one night in a 8-bed mixed dorm. This place had more guests than the previous hostels we had been to. Dorm was a bit pricey than others. We loved the free breakfast, it was awesome.


Nothing short of epic. My bunk mate stole a bunch of my gear in spite of numerous cameras. The staff sent his information around to other Hostels in Israel. He turned up in Tel Aviv at Overstay Hostel (also amazing), and I booked a shuttle immediately to get him. When I arrived, the staff at Overstay coordinated with Abraham staff and I recovered nearly all my stuff! Totally unheard of. On top of all that they refunded my stay as an apology!!! Great facilities location too!

Hi, Thank you very much for your warm review! We are glad you've left your valuables in our lockers, so the stuff taken weren't too precious. It makes us as happy as you are to know that "ILH - israel hostels" network works fine, and takes care of backpackers all over the country! Hope to see you here again soon :) Gil Volfson Guest Relations


Great Hostel, very good breakfast, great staff and big common area, just the dormitories are not that cozy


this Hostel is too big and unfamiliar, almost like a hotel. We had a room in the basement without a window, just a small strip and street noises. The roof terrace is not bad but it is almost a journey to arrive there. For using the internet station you have to pay. Although the stuff is friendly and helpful and the location is good i would not recommend this hostel as it completely lacks atmosphere and cosiness.


overall: excellent!


The location is great. Far away enough for not being hustled by tourist trolls in the old city but close enough that everything is in waking distance. Everything is extent well organized. The staff is nice and the atmosphere pretty good. Guess one of the best choices to stay in the city


great bar and travel services


I have nothing but good things to say of Abraham Hostel. My stay there was filled with new friends and good times. Breakfast is great, WIFI strong and the showers hot. And you MUST stay over Sabbat and join everyone for the Sabbat dinner. Thank you Abraham Hostel!


abraham hostel is by far the best hostel i have ever stayed in! the location is excellent, and the staff is incredible. they have events in the lounge every night, and they offer a wide range of unique tours that are as affordable as they are interesting. the people at the front desk were able to help me with everything from transportation and tour recommendations, to where to find the best falafel, and even where i could get my phone repaired for a reasonable price. i will definitely be back!


Nice place not really an hostel more like a hotel, but however nice place friendly and helpful staff. Amazing rooftop terrace unfortunately closing at midnight. Best breakfast. Close to the Old Town. Place to stay when in Jerusalem!

The breakfast was very nice! The buffett was constantly filled up by the staff and the coffeemacine was awesome. Thank you! Though it is a huge hostel the atmosphere in the bar/breakt/relaxroom was very nice.
