    Welcome to your Jordanian home!

    Our home is your home, and we would like YOU to become part of our dynamic team.

    We are two brothers who are running a hostel to provide a platform for backpacker travelers. Our mission is to be Aqaba's most welcoming and homely hostel. We felt the need to create the first hostel in Aqaba, for the sake of Aqaba and the traveler community.

    We are very social with our guests, and we like to make them feel home through our Jordanian hospitality. At this hostel, we value a good laugh and love to share experiences and stories.

    Would you like to join us and become part of our big family?
    We are looking for new family members, volunteers, to join us for a minimum of 2 weeks.

    We have had different volunteers, from young college students to experienced professionals. We believe everybody has the talent and the potential to grow. Depending on your skills, we can plan your stay with us. We are always looking for great inputs for how we can improve our projects. Our main tasks include cleaning and contributing to a welcoming atmosphere for the guests.

    We ask you to stay for at least two weeks. You can stay as long as you would like and we are also willing to pay you if you can stay with us for at least three months.

    Aqaba city is the sunniest city in Jordan and known for the fantastic beaches and amazing food. We are located near to the city center and the beach. Once you come, you will understand why people fall in love with Aqaba.

    Don't hesitate to drop us a message; we are looking forward to hearing from you.
