Opened in 2018 within the historic landmark Orion Cinema, the newly renovated Cinema Hostel offers a variety of accommodation options for tourists and travelers alike. The building’s classic Jerusalem stone and impressive dome structure was offset by an interior inspired by the Radio City Music Hall. The decor inside the common areas of the hostel is inspired by cinema and movies and creates a unique atmosphere.
Guests have accommodation options from private double rooms to en suite multi-bed dorms (4-bed, 6-bed, 8-bed, 10-bed, and 12-bed dorms), and our different capsule options (soon available - September 2019), each room is themed on a different movie.
Location and surroundings
Our prime location means you're in the middle of everything! There are many bars, clubs, and restaurants around, a nearby supermarket and street food.
The old city is only 10 min away and Mahane Yehuda Market is 8 min away from the hostel.
The hostel is equipped with a shared kitchen, wide-open terrace and cozy common space, where we screen movies every week, bringing the cinema theater back to life. The hostel hosts many social activities such as Israeli food night, Jam session, Pub crawl, and Shabbat dinner and Yoga lessons. The hostel's bar, John Smith, is a 20's style cocktail bar, inspired by the cinema concept as well. On the terrace of the hostel overlooking the city center, there are also fairs and parties in the spring.
