I booked a bed in a dorm there after reading the good reviews and wasn't disappointed at all.
First the location is perfect, halfway between the Old City(10 min walk) and the central bus station (idem).
Second the staff is really great.All of them are very nice and helpful and the reception is open 24h which is very useful.
There is a big kitchen and a huge common area where people can meet, have a drink, play music etc... The atmosphere is very nice, relaxed, and the hostel organizes daily activities such as quizz night or open mic night so you can stay there and have fun. But ut's not a party hostel, meaning you get to sleep without people shouting and drinking everywhere. There are people from all age groups.
Finally the dorms themselves are fine, there is hot water whenever you need it, and the breakfast is included which is great.
I really recommend this hostel for a short or long-term stay in Jerusalem
- 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
