We stayed in this hostel for two nights. We rented a double room for 110 Us dollars. We stayed for the same price in a wonderful hotel in Jerusalem few days before. The room was bleak, more similar to a prison cell than to an hotel room. The smell in the corridors were horrible. The window of the room was blocked and AC was as old as the one you can find in some cuban casas particular, probably produced like those ones in USSR in the '50 and it didn't work properly. it switched off indipendently during the night, so the climate in the room was terribl,e hot and humid, even if outside the weather was ok. The room wasn't cleaned during our stay. The breakfast was extremely basic and you had to clean the dishes you usedfor it The check in is from 3 pm but the room was availabl only 1 .30 hours latere. The shower draining was blocked and the bathroom went completly flooded after every shower. We called the reception to reèport the problem but no one repaied it. The When I asked the reception to call me a taxi they ansered to go along the street and look for one! . I think it should be considered a bad hostel for backpackers with prices too high for what they offer. I abssolutely advise everybody to avoid it!

Dear friends.
I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. As a HOSTEL for independent travelers we are making huge efforts to provide our guests with the best travel experience. Your comments are extremely important to us in our constant effort to improve our service.
We Have a full time maintenance team, as well as 6 cleaners who clean the entire hostel daily. The bed linen can be replaced during your stay, if we are asked to do so.
We usually recommend people to try to catch a taxi on the street since it is cheaper than booking it over the phone.
Again, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience you had and hope that you will have a better experience with us next time.

We stayed as a couple at the Abraham hostel in their Double Room for one night. The place couldn't have been more perfect. It had all the amenities and most importantly was incredibly clean and comfortable. The room even included a small kitchen. The Abraham Hostel was not only a better deal but offered more quality and amenities than most three star hotels in Jerusalem! (free wifi, computers, breakfast, huge lounge space etc.)
We couldn't have asked for a better location in the city. The center of Jerusalem with all restaurants and shops around. 1 minute walk from the shuk (market) and 15 minute walk over to the Old City.
We will definitely be using this hostel again!

Definitely the best hostel I have ever stayed in!
They have a traveler center on 1st floor, and u can borrow guide books from them!
On the 2nd floor there is a bar, kitchen, and amazing common area. You can also do laundry in the hostel.
Really loved it!

Abraham is a great place! The reception, the lounge, the kitchen are spacious, comfortable and colorful. The staff is very helpful, nice and speaks good English.
The room is comfortable and spacious. It would be better if they provided more clothing and luggage storage places. The bathroom is bit small. The blackout curtain is not very efficient as there was light coming in very early in the morning.
Good breakfast. They also organize shabat dinner, visits to the market and cooking, parties and lots of activities. It's a great place to meet other travelers.
It's located outside the Old City, but if you have the energy, it's walking distance from it. If not, there's plenty of buses taking you there.
It has free wi-fi all over the hostel, unexpensive internet center, laundry facilities and travel center where you can buy tours around Jerusalem or even to Jordan.

Room Tip: Ask a room facing Hanevim Street.

This hostel is very well located, near the market, Jaffa road, and within a walking distance to the old city. People are very friendly, always willing to help you and advice you, and organise lots of useful and fun events. I'll stay there again, when I go to Jerusalem!
