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.

    I honestly have never seen such a prepared Hostel before, that still manages to keep the Hostel vibe/atmosphere. Abraham logistics and staff are prepared for all the types of hassle/requests/needs. They provide from the most important services as Tours, Transfers, Sim Cards, Restaurant/Bar to the smallest things like free earplugs or printing boarding passes. The staff is absolutely amazing and helpful and the atmosphere is truly authentic. Credit where credit is due.

    Great location and staff were friendly. Plenty of options for breakfast and has all the facilities. Place just felt a little big, kinda lost in the crowd so if you were looking to meet new people would probably find it easier in a smaller place. Aside from that wouldn't fault the place, they have everything you could want.

    A somewhat commercial superhostel in a great location that caters to groups of families and older travelers with clean facilities and tons of events etc. Nice rooftop, large dining area, decent breakfast. Very convenient for abraham tours (take advantage of the discounts!). The four bed dorm worked for one night. A close, intimate space... kind of like a barracks. Curtains would be a nice addition.

    I liked this hostel. The location of the hostel is very convenient in front of a bus and lightrail stop and near the Mahane Yehuda market. Everything was clean but I thought that there was a very specific smell in the hostel. It wasn't necessarily a bad smell but very strong. The staff was friendly. Overall I liked this hostel. I think the atmosphere was okay but not as social and good as the atmosphere in the Abraham hostel in Tel Aviv.

    Abraham’s Hostel was a great place to meet people. I had a good sleep too. If there is any suggestions, it would be to make the steps for the bunk beds sturdier because it can be detached and someone almost fell.

    I was in various hostels in Jerusalem and Abraham's was by far the worst. The equipment is really old, unkempt and therefore not comfortable. The breakfast didn't convince me either. Price-performance bad. The offered tours are quite expensive. I really wonder why this hostel is so well rated.
