Liked: Great help from staff getting oriented to city and transport to different sites. This especially is important because there is do much to do. Began each day of site-seeing with a generous breakfast. Very large dorm rooms with attached baths as well as communal baths. We are not usually at large hostels like Abraham, but this was a very nice place to stay.

Disliked: Directions are rather bad if one doesn't already have a city map.

Liked: Atmosphere Staff service Great and nice large common erea with a great bar.

Disliked: I did aresrvation that was confirmed to a bed on 10 people dorm. Wen arrived to the hotel l been told that BECOUSE l'M lSRAELI l only can be cheked in to a 4 people dorm accoding to the hostel policies. The way that I been told by the FRONT DESK clerk Shimrit, was really discriminative The worse was that wen after l left my staf on the dorm and show up again in the loby she shomrit COME OUT OF THE DESK AND COME OVER ME AND TOLD ME THAT SHE CHEKED MY RECORDS IN THE HOSTEL COMPUTER AND FIND OUT THAT I BEEN ON A 4 PEOPLE DORM BEFORE. Do l a sex ofender or e criminal suspect becouse l an lsraeli ? what was the reason that she come out of the desk to tell me that she cheked my records ?. l strongly recomend to move her out of the front desk and replase her for a more polait clerk. l mast say that the rest of the front desk staf are great. Ope the next time well have a nice check in.

Liked: Location couldn't probably be better with light rail right next to it. Quite actually you might need to use public transport pretty rarely since the old city is only a fifteen-minute walk away. The rooms are quite average but all in all this is a hostel, right? The big lounge is definitely one of its greatest advantages with billiards and darts you won't be charged for. And breakfasts are really nice too. The staff are brilliant.

Disliked: Everything's all right

Liked: The staff go the extra mile to be friendly and helpful. It's location couldn't be more central and the common areas (breakfast/lounge area) is huge and easy to meet people.

Disliked: It didn't bother me, but it's in a noisy area so if you like a very quiet nights sleep you may want to stay elsewhere.

Liked: Was quite impressed with this hostel - spacious bar area and kitchen, good tv room, lots of sofas/sitting areas, lots of activities arranged, very spacious 6 bed dorm en suite, good breakfast

Disliked: Bunk beds were very uncomfortable - too narrow - found it hard to sleep. They have an excellent bar/kitchen area but the atmosphere of the bar area is diluted by having the whole area open plan. I would erect an adjustable partition between the 2 areas so that it can be pulled across at 8 or 9pm. It takes from the bar atmosphere when one can see families/travellers preparing and dining. Wifi was a bit slow.

Liked: Met a lot of great travelers here! Very nice kitchen area and large common room. Internet was fabulous and so was the breakfast (fruit, oatmeal, bread, yogurt, feta, cucumbers, cottage cheese). The hostel puts on a lot of great tours as well. We did the free walking tour of the old city and enjoyed!

Liked: Ideal backpacker hostel with huge dinner room where you can cook, chill out in hammocks, chat with other backpackers, drink beer in the bar or even sing karaoke (and have 1 free drink for courage). There are planty of tours and many events in the hostel - party, movies and so on

Disliked: The staff was very helpful - they will help you with everything you need, but not more. Seems that they were really tired, may be because of huge amount of travellers at the time

Liked: Abraham hostel was in walking distance to most things, the tram line was just out the front door if you didnt want to walk. There was a bar and rooftop setting to socialise with fellow travelers. Breakfast was awesome and a good start to the day. There were heaps of excursions planed from there also.

Disliked: Sometimes at breakfast it felt like i was in a retirement home as there was no age limit for people staying there, but then again the ones i spoke to were helpful.

Liked: Everything. Great location, cool atmosphere, travel center - which is very helpful. Good breakfast, big common room, where u can meet people. Hostel organize different events - like local cuisine cooking, hebrew lessons and much more. Really felt like in true travel hostel. Totally recommend to pay little bit extra and stay here.

Disliked: Only one thing - beds in dormitories have metal stick edge around bed, so for someone taller than 190cm it can be not really comfortable to sleep there.

Liked: Good, clean and cheap hostel in a middle of West Jerusalem. Has everything a good hostel needs to have. Lot of facilities, laundry, local travel agency... what not to like? There was even a breakfast (however it was hostel style, quite basic).

Disliked: The need to set 20 minutes timer to take hot shower (mind the water problems in Israel).
