Do you find meaning in giving a helping hand? Do you like to meet people from around the world? Do you enjoy exploring nature? If so, this is the place for you!
Join our family of helpers and local staff. We run a hostel, located in the historical heart of Tiberias, just 100 meters from the water line of the Sea of Galilee and a short ride away from many nature reserves and beaches. The perfect home-base for exploring the northern regions of Israel - the Galilee, the Golan Heights, Jordan valley and the lake itself. Everything is a walk, a hitch or a bus away.
In 2015, we opened the hostel and have been renovating and designing on the run. We have been working day and night to turn it into a comfortable base for guests to head out and explore the surrounding areas. It’s our goal to provide excellent service and travel advice for our guests and staff, all in the effort to make exploring the area easy and fun!
You are welcome to join this project and growing family, take part in daily chores of cleaning and making breakfast, bar shifts, and cooking.
** for paid position you need to have a work visa or be citizen of israel. in which case we can talk about the optional positions, salary and other technical details **
If you’re looking to help out and experience the beauty and uniqueness of north Israel, this is the place for you.
Hope to see you here with us!

Host offers payment in line with the minimum wage
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Host has indicated that they will pay at least the minimum hourly wage of their country for each hour worked and that accommodation will also be provided. They are asking for help with a business or business activity. Contact the host directly via the site messenger for more information and details about the wage provided. Any arrangements should be agreed in advance with your host.
BREAKFAST PREP - Our guests are hungry in the morning! We provide the most rich and affordable breakfast in Tiberias and we need your help to prepare it.
CLEANING - Running a clean hostel is one of our highest priorities. We believe our guests deserve to wake up or check-in at a clean hostel. This includes turning beds, cleaning the common areas, hallways and kitchen. If you have never held a mop or broom in your life, don’t worry! It’s easier than you think and never too late to learn a new skill ;)
MAINTENANCE - This is a constant need for running a hostel. Things break, need replacing or upgrading. You will be asked to perform simple tasks, such as replacing light bulbs, painting walls and light wood work.
RENOVATION AND ART PROJECTS - We are always thinking of ways to revamp and upgrade our place. If you have a skill or ideas you’d like to share with us, please let us know. We’d love to get your input, utilize your skills and have you realize your potential.
PLEASE NOTE - Please only message us if you’d like to volunteer with us, don’t send us template requests. We will also answer you individually. Also, to help the process, specify the dates you’re interested in coming.
We appreciate your help and would like you to focus on your mission with us rather than worry about food or accommodation.
All volunteers get a bed in our volunteer shared dorm. Male and female have separate dorms. Both rooms are airconditioned and have lockers and storage. Linen included. This is why all volunteers are invited to join our guests for a great daily breakfast. We also provide grains and legumes (rice, lentils, pasta, quinoa etc.), as well as bread, eggs and fresh veggies for your other meals. We do our best to make your stay with us as comfortable and fun as possible. We ask that in return you do your best as well.
What else ...
Nature and history are all around us - Holy Christian and Jewish sites, natural springs, biking and hiking trails. You can explore the Galilee and go further to the Golan Heights, where you'll find great wineries, breweries, the highest waterfall you can swim in in the whole country and much more natural beauty. All these are within your reach! Sometimes we go together sometimes you'll find a guest or fellow team member. What's important to us is that you ask us if you have any questions and actually get out there. The more you experience the more you'll never want to leave.
Furthermore, on your days off, we can book you a free night in other hostels around the country. Just keep exploring!
