Travelers looking to put their bag down in one place and find a home away from home - join the Abraham family and our long line of legendary volunteers! Experience Israel like a local, make some unforgettable experiences and even more unforgettable friends.
Who are we?
Abraham Hostels & Tours are a group of fun, friendly hostels that cater to independent travelers looking to explore Israel and experience our beautiful country, and the Middle East to the fullest. Our three hostels are located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Nazareth and we operate tours all around Israel, the West Bank, Egypt and Jordan!
To us, a hostel is more than just a place, itís all about the people. Our staff and volunteers work hard to make our hostels a warm and welcoming place for our guests and provide them with the best experience possible. Volunteering with us is an opportunity to interact with like-minded travelers from different backgrounds and make new friends. Youíll get to experience Israel like a local - the nightlife, the beaches, the history and the hummus! As we say in Israel - Yalla - come work with us!
Our Jerusalem hostel is a large hostel with a homey, small hostel vibe. We host concerts and activities on a daily basis at our bar and beautiful rooftop with everything from the legendary hummus making workshop to the open mic night. The hostel is situated in the center of Jerusalem with easy access to public transportation. Itís just a 2-minute walk to the best market in the middle east - Mahane Yehuda, a 7-minute walk to Jerusalemís unique, alternative nightlife scene and a 15-minute walk to the amazing old city.
