  • Description

    Description

    Join our big family of helpers and local staff in creating and running this hostel.

    We are a new tourists & backpackers hostel. Created on the run from day one, but still much to do.

    Located in the town center just 100 meters from the water line of the Sea of Galilee and a short ride away from many nature attraction and beaches. Tiberias saw much better days but its still a perfect hub to explore the north of Israel, Galilee, Golan Heights, Jordan valley and the lake. And we have come to provide a good home base for travelers.

    Its been more than a year since we took the place and have been renovating and designing on the run, there is still plenty to do.

    We have been working day and night to turn it into a comfortable base for guests to head out and explore the area of the sea of galilee. we collect information and explore the nature and its activities and communities, provide detailed information on sites, we are working on establishing our future tour company starting with a vintage VW van exploring the area together at night and weekends.

    You are welcome to join this project and growing family, take part in daily chores of cleaning and maintenance or if you have good hands or experience help in renovation, setting up the daily routines, help in reception ( for long stayers ) and information.

    the volunteer staff composes of 4-7 people on top of 3-4 regular staff members.

    - we currently need :
    * good hands for woodwork, painting, construction and renovation.
    * graphic design to make signs,map and flyers
    * maintenance that knows how to clean and generally keep the place awesome
    * art projects - mural painting, furniture decoration. send us some of your art work.

    We will be happy to have you and your skill to bring back life to this hostel, renovate, invent, and explore what the beautiful nature around has to offer tourists.

    Hope to see you here with us !

    - Maintenance: If you'll be joining the maintenance crew than we expect you to be energetic and know how to use a broom&dust pan, and keep the place tidy. and put out breakfast and keep it tidy.
    - Renovation and art projects - We dont expect you to be professional but if you never wielded a hammer in your life this is not the place for you to start. we dont want you to loose a finger on your vacation, still we'll be happy to teach how to build furniture from pallets, paint walls etc. and are open to your ideas and skills.
    - For reception help, you'll need to be fluent in english, representing and friendly. we'll teach you the rest.
    - Projects - we are open to project volunteering, creating something (mural, video etc), hit us like Flo did and made us an amazing video.

    Please, if you write us its because you want to volunteer with us, dont send us template requests. We will also answer you individually. Specify the period and positions you're interested in.
