My name is Minwer and I will tell you my story now. So basically, My friends and I used to travel abroad a lot, did backpacking, went to adventures, hopping from one youth hostel to another while meeting people from all over the world until an idea of opening our own Hostel in our hometown came to our mind.
We want to create a community of our own, having cultural exchange and people from all over the world. It is not just a Hostel, It’s also a social cultural community, a youth chill-space, locals and tourists meet with a friendly environment around the Hostel.
The hostel has only one paid employee, a cleaner that comes once every 2 weeks. Otherwise, the 3 owners work by themselves in the Hostel, operating, managing, daily cleaning, gardening and such tasks.
The Hostel is located in an old neighbourhood in Amman where many wonderful places are nearby such as Old downtown, rainbow street, and a lot of more.
Will you be lucky enough to join the Hostel project in the very beginning part ??

A single bed in a bunk-bed dormitory with the tourists! Shared bathroom, shared kitchen, can use all the hostel facilities!
So for the food in this exchange, as it is mostly known that food industry is the mostly known and famous industry in Jordan where all delicious food is found everywhere in a cheap price. However, the hostel has kitchen and other related facilities where guests sometimes cook and share the meal with others. We also sometimes make special cooking events at somebody's family home where we also cook together and share everything.
The workawayer is provided with food in the fridge, sometimes cooked and sometimes uncooked, so they have to know cooking, as they will definitely learn to cook some Arabic food.
The workawayer can help tourists in whatever they need of assistance regarding the hostel or Amman in general! As well as, they might be able joining some tourists hangouts or nights out.
As well they will be joining the most unique experiences/adventures that the owners of the hostel will face. Plus you have to be CRAZY so be ready to join an entertaining family!
The hostel is near to many good places/cafes/restaurants on the 2nd circle as well as it is a short distance walking to the downtown or the rainbow street.
The owners of the hostel are so friendly and flexible where they are ready to provide all the assistance for the workawayers when needed.
