Wonderful location near a bank, tram, three convenience stores, 5 min. walk to market (bars at night, food during day), 15 min. walk to old town. You could easily stay at Abraham and have a calm quiet stay, but it's also easy to meet people in the lounge/kitchen. The upstairs movie night is a big plus. I loved the fact that you can quickly and easily book tours from the lobby. I'll definitely stay here again when I return.
I was told Abraham hostel is in the top 5 in the world and I can see why. Brilliant vibe. My only problem is that I wish I could give the staff more than 100%. They couldnt have been more helpful and accommodating, and any kind of question they are more than happy to answer. Great place in a great city
Good hostel overall, friendly and helpful staff, pretty good atmosphere (though there was a bit of a "birthright" vibe - and this is a negative for most independent travellers). Location was on the main street in town, but about a 2km walk from the Old City.
This place is HUGE! And the dorms seem to vary quite a bit. I started off in a 6-bed dorm where half the lockers were broken, the AC was too cold and couldn't be changed, and it smelled, but then I switched to a 10-bed dorm to be with my friends, which was cheaper but surprisingly nicer. But it's a great social hostel, nice rooftop and common area, and they have lots of nightly activities and tours.
The first choice when you come Jerushalem, they have very tour in the lobby, but all the bedroom in the basement, a little bit noise in the night.
Nothing is missing here. A cool place to stay!
This hostel is very well known in the city so it won't be hard for you to find it. Some facilities (like tours) they offer are a little more expensive than other hostels, but the staff is very friendly and helpful with every doubt you have. The free breakfast buffet is really good and helps you start the day with the right foot. 15-20 minutes walk from main attractions (Old City) and Bus Central Station. Overall I had a good stay here.
They have a good and free breaksfast and the lounge is great
I would love come back.

I found this hostel top class in all areas. They made my stay in Jerusalem most enjoyable
It is a great place to stay. When I just put good for atmosphere that is only because I found the common room a little noisy at times but it is not a valid point because I am an oldie and most hostelers are young ones. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Abraham's. When we had a siren call they were ready with instructions over a loud speaker so we all could understand the importance of moving quickly downstairs to the basement. I recommend Abraham Hostel as first rate.
Great location - close to the markets and an easy walk in to the old town. Lovely hostel, more like a hotel. It was great having the tour desk in the hostel for a few spontaneous day trips. Would recommend staying here.
We had a great time there altough we stayed only for a night. Excellent staff, great place, clean and nice. We got nice breakfast as well, and had a great time at the rooftop. I really recommend this hostel!!

Atmosphere is really good, a big place where it is easily to meet people, ideal for solo travelers. All the common areas are fantastic, giant bar and rooftop. However they could restrict guests age, had a 50yo guy at my room who didn't stop complaining that people should travel to study (??), and not go out for night clubs and bars... Also, wifi was a bad, didn't wok most of the time I was there.
Hostel location, cleanliness and staff first rate. Breakfast excellent too and overall the value for money was second to none.

The place is great, good energy. I love it! Good breakfast and a great location. I will be back!!
Un hostel genial. Cerca de la ciudad antigua y al lado del mercado de Mahane Yehuda, muy bueno para cenar. El staff es muy amable y siempre te explica y encuentra una solución a todo lo q les pidas, desde ayudarte a llegar a un museo o comprar un billete por Internet porque la página está en hebreo. El desayuno es muy bueno. Pero lo mejor es el ambiente que hay siempre en el hostel, se puede conocer mucha gente! Los dormitorios muy bien. Los tours q organizan geniales. De los mejores hostels!
This was already my second stay in Abraham hostel, and I will choose it again if I get to go to Jerusalem in the future. The location is walkable from the bus station as well as from the Old City, and the staff was very kind and friendly. The dorm rooms are not cramped at all, and they are kept very clean. We appreaciated the opportunity to socialize with other travellers during the various activities they offer, as well as the rich breakfast.
A great place to stay, excellent localization and atmosphere.
Awesome place. The best is the organized trips they have which really allows you to get the most out of Jerusalem and the West Bank. If I came back to Jerusalem, I'll definitley be staying here :)
