Hello Workawayers! This is the PERFECT TIME for you to come to Palestine. We are the proud owners of two successful hostels in the West Bank, and in July 2019 we are opening a brand new hostel in Bethlehem. But not only is it a beautiful place to sleep for up to 80 guests, the hostel also features a large pool and sauna, a 360 degree view across Bethlehem and neighbouring cities, and a private rooftop exclusively for guests! The hostel in an ideal location right in the city center close to the Church of Nativity, the Bus Terminal, and other historical landmarks.
Our volunteer work hours are flexible! We want you to be a part of the hostel environment which may be in shifts during busy periods, but we also give you enough time to explore the city or participate in our activities.
In addition to enjoying our gorgeous home, volunteers are also welcome to join our tours that take guests all over the West Bank including Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus, and the Dead Sea. Volunteers are encouraged to participate in the nightly hostel activities, such as movie nights and beer pong tournaments, and suggest even more social events!

This is a great opportunity to experience Palestinian culture and explore the West Bank. Teeming with history, politics, and culture, Bethlehem is a perfect place to get a taste of the local culture. From the old city markets to the bars and restaurants, volunteering in Bethlehem will never get boring.
For some volunteers this could be their first time visiting an Arabic country or a country under occupation. We are of course more than happy to share our knowledge with you, teach you Arabic, and keep you updated on the current political situation.
We want to make a ‘family’ of volunteers. People who are social and not afraid to befriend guests and make them feel welcome. We do not view our volunteers as ‘workers’, you will be assisting alongside paid local Palestinian staff. In return for free lodging we just request that you share your skills with us and be part of the hostel. Can you teach Yoga to guests? Go for it! Do you have experience with social media? Lend a hand with ours! If you have any other valuable skill that you think could elevate our hostel to the next level, we want to hear it.
Volunteers will get a bed in our volunteer dorm room. As we know many volunteers will be coming for 2 weeks up to 3 months, we want you to feel at home! So we want to give you your own permanent space to work or play. You will have full access to the pool, sauna, restaurant, rooftop, and other hostel amenities such as the kitchen and lounge room.
If this doesn’t sound tempting enough: We also have great wifi for staying in contact with family or doing your digital nomadic duties, oh and Jesus lived here.
