With everything from hummus-making sessions to Friday Shabbat dinners, we'll introduce you to Israel's rich culture here at Abraham Hostel Jerusalem. You'll also have other activities to choose from – think open mic night, yoga classes and pub quizzes, as well as pub crawls and barbecues. Our communal spaces are your go-to spots for chilling, whether you want to settle in a hammock in the lounge, sip a pint at the bar or catch the sun on the rooftop terrace. And of course, there's free breakfast and free Wi-Fi.


We're in Jerusalem's city centre, a 30-minute walk from the mystical Old City, where you can visit ancient sites like the Western Wall or the Dome of the Rock. The trip from Ben Gurion Airport takes about an hour or more on public transport, or you can grab a faster shared shuttle. If Jerusalem's your first stop in the Middle East, check out our tours: we'll take you to destinations ranging from the Dead Sea to Petra, the Jordanian city carved from rock.

Rooms and Dorms

We have private rooms to share if you're travelling with a crew and mixed, male- or female-only dorms for those flying solo (linen and towels included). There's air con to keep you comfy and an elevator so you can save your legs for sightseeing! You'll also get a locker to keep your backpack secure while you're touring.

Extras and activities

We have in-depth knowledge of our city (the history is fascinating!)– and we'll help you experience it to the fullest on our daily free city tour. Come chat to us in our travel centre when you're not concentrating on being a pool or foosball champ in the games area. We also have a kitchen so you can perfect your falafel-making skills, and a TV room for some quiet time. If you're carrying valuables with you, just ask to use our safe.

    So many amenities for such an affordable price! They even upgraded me from a 10-bed mixed to a 4-bed mixed without charging me more than I had paid ($20/night). I stayed for 4 nights in a pretty clean room with respectful roommates. Mattresses were very comfortable & had an en suite toilet & shower (in separate spaces so 2 people could use either at once). The staff were friendly, helpful, & energetic. Tours were prompt, with great guides & meaningful visits (I did bethlehem & Dead Sea 1/2 day)

    As good as this hostel is feel more like a hotel with dorm rooms. Lacks a hostel community feel. Rooms are good very clean, good breakfast and great location.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Abraham Hostel! The staff helped us a lot both with booking the city tours and with arranging the car rental. The hostel is conveniently located between the old city and the local market. I'd definitely choose this hostel again in the future!

    The location of Hostel is absolutely fantastic. Very close to market and the orthodox neighbourhood Mae Sherim (must visit place). The travel to and from station is cery convenient through light train. If you are coming by Shared taxi from Airport it will drop you at hostel. The old city is short walk (1 mile) and the walk is very beautiful from the main street. They have lot of tours and you can pick up any. As per Indian taste the breakfast is Ok but they have wide spread. Overall excellent

    Far from the old city, which I wanted to visit more often but didn't have time to, and close to the market. Breakfast was much better than I expected with lots of fresh veggies and fruit. Bring shower shoes/slippers. Book tours in advance. Receptionists are super nice and mostly helpful. Take advantage of the communal kitchen.

    - Security: Lockers & locked door. But lockers to small for the whole backpack. - Staff mostly trying to sell (partially overpriced) tours - The dorms weren't clean, everything was kinda dirty and low quality/old - Very big hostel with a diverse group of travelers. Common area okayish for socializing. (They should fix the pool table and Foosball)

    The Hostel has two great points: location and breakfast. The location is really convenient, it’s only a 20 minute walk from the bus station and also to old town. Breakfast is just very complete and it’s included. On the other hand, big cons: staff. You are just one more person coming through. Especially for the tour sales person, they just don’t care, the faster you pay, the better. Other big con: atmosphere. The hostel is just too big, and too many taglit groups. Not great for solo travelers.
