About Us

Our Vision

Our intention to offer true hospitality to all travelers that come through our hostel’s doors played a major role in the crucial decision of the hostel’s name. We draw our inspiration from Abraham, the father of monotheism and the first backpacker of the Middle East. Abraham was known for his hospitality with his tent flap always open to offer food, drink and rest and was the first truly regional traveler. Today, he marks a unifying symbol among the area’s most prominent faiths. These qualities made him a fitting representation of what we hope to bring to the world: unparalleled hospitality to our time and our guests.

The Founders of Abraham

Maoz Inon and Gal Mor, both enthusiastic globetrotters and travel entrepreneurs, met through their mutual efforts to promote Israel as a leading destination for independent travelers. Their dream was to create an all-encompassing one-stop hub for backpackers and to revolutionize the world’s view of Israel and the Middle East by revealing the local reality and all that this region has to offer. The idea of Abraham Hostel was born.

In order to turn their dream into a reality, the young entrepreneurs asked Nitzan Kimchi and Dror Tishler to join them, initially as investors and later on contributors to their experience, knowledge, and expertise. Finally, Yaron Burgin, who shares an equal love for travel and wish to turn Israel into a desirable backpacker’s destination, joined and complimented the team as the fifth partner of Abraham Hostels in 2006.

The Hostel

As the fourth hostel within the Abraham group, our Eilat location opened its doors in 2020. Located in Eilat’s city center, the location has many public transportation options and is just a 15-minute walk to the main beach promenade. The hostel welcomes up to 450 independent travelers each night. Guests days are easily spent relaxing in the swimming pool, bar & lounge, and on the sandy beaches. Come party day & night in the hostel club and at Eilat’s famous nightlife scene.
Onward travels are made completely hassle-free with the door-to-door bus service dropping travelers at the other Abraham Hostels in Nazareth, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem, while Abraham Tours takes them on extensive trips all across the region.
