"Maintaining a hostel with the warmest atmosphere in the Middle East!"

This is the Deal

Abraham Hostel was opened in 2010 in order to provide quality accommodation for independent travellers in the Middle East. Our hostel has already been honored as one of the 10 top large hostels in the world by the Hoscar awards.

Abraham Hostel is dedicated to offering the best travel experience for its guests, and showing them the best Israel has to offer. In the hostel you’ll find a range of services and facilities such as a tour company, travel desk (offering free travel advice), bar, huge lounge with foosball, billiards and daily evening activities, a rooftop, daily free tour to the old city, and much more.

Our volunteer program was created in order to foster a family feeling and contribute to the social atmosphere of the hostel. New volunteers quickly become an integral part of the team, contributing to running of the hostel, and acting as a bridge between the guests and staff. For example volunteers help to serve breakfast, help with recycling, plan and execute evening social events, assist in the bar and escort guests to the starting point of the old city tour.

Welcome Skills: English fluency


The volunteers live in a shared 5 bed dorm room, occupied solely by hostel volunteers. It’s a mixed-sex dorm – guys and girls together. The room includes a shower and toilet, full length mirror, free WiFi, air conditioning, and a small fridge. Towels and linens are provided and can be changed at your request. Volunteers are also welcome to use the hostel facilities such as the communal kitchen, TV lounge, bar, and rooftop terrace. Volunteers also have their own computer in one of our offices. Our breakfast, which goes above and beyond the typical hostel breakfast, is also free for volunteers. It includes fruit, vegetables + olive oil, cheese, cereal, milk, bread/butter/jam/chocolate spread, a cappuccino/espresso machine, and more!
