Great place to start exploration of Jerusalem
  • Recommended hotel

  • City break
  • November 2013
Cheap and convenient place to explore Jerusalem. Located in center of West Jerusalem this hostel offers excellent base to roam around the city. As with any hostels you have dormitories and common space, but rooms are generally small, so it is not as painful as in other hostels. The rooms are clean, linen is ok. Bathroom is quite ok. There is a free breakfast (not so common in hostels), but this is very basic one. Hostel is full of facilities - there is a tourist information office, travel agency, internet cafe, printer, laundry, cafeteria, and everything you need to have. ... This is far more that one can expect from budget accommodation. read hotel review

This is very nice place to stay in Jerusalem. This hostel is very big but not crowded. Staff is very friendly. They helped me a lot with my questions about local transport. Breakfast was not very good but it was free. There was a kitchen with staff so you could by a melon for instance and eat it there. read hotel review

Great location
  • Recommended hotel
  • Friends
  • City break
  • March 2013
Hostel Abraham has a great location, almost right on a Jaffa road which leads from central bus station to the Old Town. Tram line makes transport connection even more easy. The area itself where hostel is located is lively and a lot of various shops and cafes are in the vicinity as well as a large market. Hostel provides simple, budget style accommodation. We had there twin room with ensuite bathroom. Room amenities included also a small kitchenette with a fridge and a sink, TV and air conditioner. It was March when we visited Jerusalem and nights were very cold ... so air conditioner was very helpful while switched on to heating. Hostel has a vast communal area which occupied almost a whole floor and included bar, billiard, TV and a kitchen where buffet breakfast is provided in the morning. Breakfast there has one peculiarity that guests themselves should wash up after breakfast. Reception staff are young and friendly, always ready to help with any information and advice. They have a travel agency on the premises and I have to mention also a welcome drink they offer at a bar. read hotel review

City break in Jerusalem
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Friends
  • City break
  • January 2013
Well placed hostal in Jerusalem, next to the tramway. The rooms are big, but tipically "simply" furnished with nothing extraordinary. The restaurant is a common place where you have to make your own breakfast and you have to wash your own dishes. Anyway the hostal is friendly, but if you don't like the "community feeling", than do not choose this hotel. (We had left our baggages in the luggage room, but we were affraid a little, because the recepcionist easily give you the key if you want to pick your luggage and they never identify what you pick up or ... even don't come with you to the luggage room. (Finally, we had no problem with it, because we got back our baggages without any problem.) read hotel review

A great hostel in Jerusalem, good traffic connections, close to the city center and only about 10 minutes on foot of the historic part of town. Breakfast is quite simply, for a hostel but ok, our room was clean. Highly recommend is the roof terrace, where you can great relaxing. Our room had a private bathroom, but also the bathroom are very clean and in good condition. The staff is very nice and helpful, we could even after our check-out in the morning in the evenings before our trip home the showers use. The Abraham hostel offers lots of tours ... and events on, also hosts open mic and concerts, those who like it so always entertainment. We have the hostel route 'massada sunrise' booked, a really nice tour in a manageable group (with us less than 10 people). Since, the hostel also monthly hikes in the area (on facebook notified). We will definitely stay here again. read hotel review

Great value for money archived

It is not easy to find cheap and well-located accommodation in Jerusalem but we managed to do this: the total price for three nights (including an award three night) was just around 110 Euros in equivalent for a double room with our own bathroom and breakfasts (not luxury but healthy). The location is great: just about 20 minutes on foot to the old city and around ten minutes to a very good Jaffa market, Of course, it is just a hostel with its shortcomings (no special facilities, no TVs in rooms, rare linen change etc.) but the value for ... money is really great for Jerusalem! Additionally, the hostel offers a lot of interesting excursions (some of which are free) and there is a great atmosphere: during breakfasts you can communicate with people coming to visit the Holy City from various parts of the world. read hotel review

    The waiters comes from all over the world, and is rather than alternative student to describe. At the front desk there was at the time of our visit a german-speaking woman employee.

    The building makes from the outside a rather run-down impression and is about 4 stations with the, on arrival recently-opened and therefore free, tram of the historic part of town away. In the immediate area does not exist very lots of restaurants, but a bakery in the same building.
