I've stayed at the Abraham Hostel at least 3 times. Every time we love the atmosphere, free continental breakfast and location! I highly recommend this place. It is a 15-20 minute walk downhill to the Old City. Light rail train is also an option for a cheap price.

While the bedrooms could benefit from a little update, the beds are goods, the sheets are clean, there is hot water at good pressure. But the really difference is the people. Nice, warm and welcoming. Merry atmosphere. We were lucky to share their Shabbat diner, and where could you enjoy such an experience ? We loved it.

Very convenient to get to and from the Hostel. The Hostel itself is really very modern, very nice staff, clean. Really nice place to stay and explore Jerusalem from, I can and will definitely recommend this to my friends.

The overall stay wasn't bad. On one of the last days when they cleaned our bags were thrown around the room. There was no care about the items that could potentially be in the bags. Overall good vibe.

This hostel was included in my package with Abraham Tours. Regardless, I strongly recommend this hostel. It is in the centre of Jerusalem, and within walking distance of the Jaffa Gates of the Holy City. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. The hostel is quite clean. Not as clean and modern as the Tel Aviv hostel, but still very good....

Great place to stay - it's just a very short walk from the Ha'Davidka tram line so accessible to the area (which is bustling with shops and food, and yet it is nicely tucked away from the noise). The staff are very, very helpful. I stayed at both the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem Abraham Hostels. The service and genius loci...

Excellent facility. Knowledgable, helpful staff, great room, excellent location. I'm a 68 year old woman and this was my first stay in a hostel. I'd do it again if they are all like Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem.

Thank you for your warm review! We aim to create a space where it's easy for people to meet each other, make connections, share a beer or make plans for the day at the free breakfast buffet. We offer large and small dorm rooms as well as a variety of private rooms and even family rooms, so all are welcome...

I stayed 3 nights back in the beginning of May. Was a mix of everyone - backpackers, elderly and families. It's not a party hostel but still a social place and everyone is nice as well as up for chatting. The staff are brilliant and put on daily events which really help to meet others. The rooftop and breakfast was...

Had a great time staying at Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem with my friend. The hotel staff were attentive and helpful. Interesting and knowledgeable people with diversity of age who stayed in this hostel, unlike other places. Joined Friday night "Shabbat" traditional dinner where the staff explained and demonstrated what was all about "Shabat". We were impressed!! Good location as there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Abraham is known as the father of monotheism and was the first backpacker in the Middle East. He journeyed throughout the lands accepting hospitality from those whose homes he came to, and extending hospitality to anyone who passed near his tent. We wish to extend Abraham's Biblical hospitality to our time. We, the staff & owners of Abraham Hostels, created our dream hostel in Jerusalem to support travelers in the Middle East. The Abraham Hostel is located in Jerusalem's city center catering for independent travelers and small groups. Our location allows for easy walking access to all major sites such as the Old City or Mahane Yehuda Market. There are plenty of public transportation options right outside to various Jerusalem sites, as well as to the international airport and other cities in Israel and the West Bank. The hostel offers daily activities and tours in our ongoing effort to encourage travelers to make new friends and new experiences. Whether it's our hostel bar, traveler's information center or chill-out rooftop, we try to provide everything an independent traveler needs when travelling in the area. For those traveling outside Jerusalem there is a special discount when staying in Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv and the Fauzi Azar Inn in Nazreth, as well as special shuttle service between all three branches. ... more   less

“1st floor is the lounge and breakfast area, 3rd floor is the stairs to the rooftop so if you want a quieter level then pick the 2nd floor.”
