How to Get There

BY FOOT From the Central Bus Station turn left and walk along Jaffa Street towards the city center. You'll pass the Machane Yehuda Market on your right hand side. After around 10 minutes you'll reach a junction with traffic lights, and a square opposite. Look up and you'll see our building! Cross the street, and cut across the square to the left. The entrance to the Abraham Hostel Jerusalem is on the left hand side of the building, on HaNeviim Street. The walk takes 15 minutes or so in total.
BY CAR
Coming into Jerusalem via Road 1 from the west, continue along Ben Zvi Boulevard, turning left at Bezalel Street. At the top of Bezalel, turn left, and then left again at the roundabout onto Agripas. At the first traffic light turn right, cross over the train tracks and take the road right to HaNeviim Street, where you'll see the entrance on the right. You can park in the parking lot next to the hostel: take the small road down to the left of the entrance. The price is approximately 70 NIS per day.
BY TRAM
From the Central Bus Station, the quickest option is to take the tram/light rail heading towards the city center. Exit the tram after three stops, at the Davidka stop. The hostel is on the other side of Jaffa Street (the other side of the tracks), walk around to the other side of the building and you'll see the entrance
FROM THE AIRPORT
From Ben Gurion Airport the best way to get to the Abraham Hostel is by shared taxi (Nesher) which will drop you off right at the door. You can find them right outside the main arrival hall. A single ride to Jerusalem costs 60 NIS and takes about 45 minutes (depending on traffic). This video will show you how this works!
