My name is Bakr and I am from Nablus, Palestine, the third oldest
city in the world. I own a hostel in the old city and am happy to
host a work away volunteer. I am also open to having two volunteers
in case you travel with a friend. I mainly work as a Civil Engineer,
and this hostel was a project that I began as a passion of mine. I
love to meet people from all around the world and learn about their
cultures. My hostel has six rooms. As a volunteer,
I would seek your assistance with managing reservations on
booking sites as well as sharing your ideas
to improve the hostel. As a volunteer receiving accommodation, you
will be treated as my family. I’ll be happy to show you around
Nablus as well as other cities in Palestine. Feel free to send me any
questions, as I am open to new ideas.
