  • Description


    Our hostel is located in the heart of the German Colony, an historic neighborhood

    in Haifa, northern Israel – right down the street from the Bahai Gardens and a five-
    minute walk from the lively downtown.

    We are a small business, owned by two brothers and operating since 2014.
    The hostel is housed in a building from the Ottoman period and we have
    preserved its elegant features and character. We offer both dorm rooms and
    private bedrooms to our guests.
    In addition to catering to tourists, we also operate a restaurant that serves local
    (and very tasty) dishes such as Hummus, Shawarma, and Fatteh - all of which are
    prepared on site with our special recipes. These serve to create a culinary
    experience for our workawayers.
    We also host events for locals and tourists, including parties, jam sessions, and
    networking get-togethers.
    We have hosted Workawayers since opening. Our Workawayers are an integral part of
    the hostel team and create an amazing atmosphere.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Haifa is known for being a unique home for numerous cultures and religions, all
    coexisting side-by-side.
    Workawayers here will have the opportunity to experience local cultures, through
    their interactions with the local members of the team and through our events and
    parties, which emphasize Arabic music and bring many people from around Haifa
    and the North.
    Language practice opportunities (Arabic and Hebrew) are plentiful as well.
    We also offer our volunteers free stays at other hostels around the country.

    Haifa is a great city to visit and to live in. The German Colony neighborhood has
    many great restaurants, a stone’s throw from the hostel. The nearby Wadi Nisnas
    neighborhood offers local eateries and shops, and downtown Haifa showcases
    amazing bars and restaurants with all types of cuisine. The food scene in Haifa is,
    in our opinion, the best in the country.
    The magnificent Bahai Gardens are just up the street from the hostel, and the
    beach is just a 20 minute walk or a short bus ride away.
    Exploring Haifa is a great way to spend your time off, and we are happy to provide
