Love this Hostel, great location, excellent staff, great breakfast, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Tours are offered for all Israel. You meet great people of all ages from all over the world. They have a lot of great activities at the hostel
I usually dont like big hostels, but this was an exception, though its big its good enough. Anyway too many people means you can have problems with the wifi for example. The breakfast is really good. The location is average(too far from the old town). The staff is sometimes friendly, but other times super not friendly(i guess they have too much work). What I didnt like is the travel desk, they seem to be there just to use their phones. If you ask for tours, all they do is pass you a file.
The experience was beyond my expectation. The staff and guest were like a big happy family. It is a great place to meet people and form relationships. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I could not have found a better place. I pray God's blessings on the staff and the Hostel. Continue the great work. A big thank you to all the staff!

Basically a very nice hostel with a proper common area (incl. free table soccer and billiard table, rooftop terrace, a bar and good free breakfast). A lot of volunteers and staff members keep the place running, however the reception can be very busy. Unfortunately the place was full of religious lunatics. I guess that's all over Jerusalem the same and maybe depends on the season. An age restriction might be a good idea for hostels in Jerusalem to be rather a backpacker's place than a church.
Excellent hostel! The common room was awesome, and it made it easy to meet other travelers. The room was very clean and the bunk beds were comfortable and sturdy!
The best hostel in Jerusalem. The atmosphere is great. The breakfast very good. El mejor hostel en Jerusalem. La Atmosferea es genial y el desayuno muy bueno.
Only passed through this hostel for one night, so were unable to make use of the full facilities, but had a lot going on, the staff were helpful and informative, and it was a great base to explore the city. It is only a short distance to the old city, but is also near the lively market areas with lots of bars and restaurants around. Very clean also.

The hostel is very well located, maybe a bit expensive...
There was only one thing I didn't like about Abraham Hostel, since it's such a big place and there are so many people it's very impersonal and most of the time you don't feel in a hostel. The staff were usually very busy, so i felt a bit uncomfortable when I had to ask them anything. Also, the bar is very expensive, if you compare it with the bars near the hostel. Hats off to Maya, she was EXTREMELY nice and helpful!
Understandably the top choice hostel for Jerusalem, great place to stay and would definitely recommend. Big breakfast spread, awesome free tour (money made on tips) friendly staff and overall good atmosphere. A slightly pricier hostel but to be expected in a city like Jerusalem.

The most famous hostel in town. Worth a stay.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Love the space, the vibe, the rooms, the bar/happy hour, the friendly staff, all the resources/information for travelers, etc. I highly recommend it!
Apart from the basement dorms being quite damp (owing to the lack of ventilation), this was one of the most functional and practical places I've stayed at! There is a knowledgeable travel desk to answer your transport and tour queries, and breakfast was good. The staff are also very friendly! For me, the fact that it was so conveniently situated between old city, the food market and the central bus station was a major plus.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Great social atmosphere downstairs at the bar. Nightly social activities. Staff is great and make this place feel like family. Cool hangout on the roof. Something for everyone. Breakfast is really satisfying. One last note: One of the staff members mistakenly reserved the wrong shuttle pickup to the airport and I would have missed my flight, however, the hostel called a cab to get me there on time and even payed the difference. Amazing and thank you!!
Good facilities, great location. The Shabbat dinner is a nice touch. Has lots of ammenities.
Everything is good except noise. I was living in a 10-person dorm room, which is in the basement. If the windows are open, it's noisy as it's facing the road where vehicles go. Anyway, it's not a problem for those nothing could wake them up.
I really liked the roof top and the Abraham Tours! The room was clean and spacious what I really appreciated!
Abraham Hostel is fantastic. Everything you can think of needing is there, from earplugs to a kitchen to a gaming/tv room to the cheapest alcohol in the country (tourists = no tax!) to a cool roof and internet and the most ridiculously awesome location (on Jaffa st, where you can take the train to the old city, mere blocks from Mehane Yehuda market, and a train away from the central bus station) to offering a bunch of fantastic tours. Everyone I spoke to told me to stay here for a reason.
Very good hostel, clean, good breakfast, connection to tour agency and many activities available, but in my opinion too big...
Amazing hostel. Super friendly staff, great tours and fun activities. If you are traveling alone, with friends or with family this is the place to stay.
