You didn't come here just to sleep, right?
Jerusalem is one of the most diverse and intriguing cities on earth. There's so much to see and do, with an abundance of historical and religious sites, museums, galleries, tours, cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife. And then there are the people…We're situated in the most central area of the city, right above the light rail stop and a short distance from many of the city's major sites and attractions. We'll be happy to recommend tours and guides. But that's not all. We also bring the local culture home through various events sharing with our guests a unique mix of traditional and contemporary Jerusalem tastes, sounds and customs. Spend an evening learning how to cook Jerusalem style hummus, or sit back with a beer and take in the sounds of one of the young bands. Curl up with a book in one of our comfortable lounge chairs on the terrace overlooking the city, enjoy a movie or share a meal with new friends you just met.
We like to mix and match.
Most of our guests enjoy a balance between privacy and social events. Our facilities provide uniquely defined social settings that let you find the right space and activity for you, for a quiet evening or the chance to explore something new indoors.

We're only 200 meters away from the walls surrounding the old city, right near the light rail and municipality.

Revival of a local landmark
THE POST HOSTEL is located on the top floor of the historical Central Post Office of Jerusalem. Built between 1934-1938 and designed by the public works department of the British Mandate, Austen Harrison and the Government's architect Percy Harold Winter, this unique architectural monument integrates both the international style as well as the traditional Jerusalem design. It was originally the home of the Palestine Post, Telegraph & Telephone, the Jerusalem central telephone exchange and the city's post office and serves as the central post office until this day. Its exterior is an expression of its history, with influences from various periods and cultures, including seven arches along the main entrance, five of which were originally openings for selling postage stamps. English, Hebrew and Arabic writing can be found along them, indicating the fusion of cultures and religions of this special place.
The construction process for THE POST HOSTEL considered the historical and architectural importance of this building, gently peeling back layers of history. The delicate process revealed the original walls, floors and ceilings of this unique landmark, bringing history to life and enhancing the connection between past, present and future. THE POST HOSTEL sends its visitors back in time, while remaining very much alive and in tune with the bustle and motion of today's city.
