The Experience

I built the hostel myself with help of friends and volunteers. there is always stuff to do - from oiling the hinges and fixing furniture to upcycling shipping pallets and designing spaces. You need to know how to use tools, and how to fix or build stuff. Or if you want to learn, expect me to give a long boring project that will make you bond with a specific tool or material. But you will make friends with that tool/material forever.

Haia Hostel combines tranquility with a vibrant sense of fun. They have daily pancake breakfast and vegetarian meal option and Omer's hospitality adds to the welcoming atmosphere. I had the pleasure of going above on social media, appreciated that they already have a plan in advance, this make easy the work for a volunteer. The complimentary tours were a great asset for content creation, and I'm grateful to Guilia for her openness to my expertise. With some recommendations in mind, I'm excited to see how the hostel and the other hostels partners continues to evolve in a near future.

The hostel is a fun & chill place to volunteer and stay. The Hostel is formed with creativity and love for upcycling. You can discover more & more little details about the place, wich is also in constant change. As a volunteer you can also suggest & develop concepts to form the place to and give it a personal touch. The volunteers culture is more family like, you get a good and warm welcome. If you have the motivation to bring yourself a in with with a small touch in the history of the hostel, I would recommend it to you.

Omer, the ILH (Israel Hostels Association), and Overstay provided an incredible opportunity to work within an atypical volunteer position. Many thanks for creating such a position and allowing me to be the first to navigate and test these waters. True to the position listed, I will not forget the generous hospitality Omer showed me as we visited and worked with hostels throughout Israel...from Tel Aviv, to Haifa, and Tiberias. To future volunteers, don't just run…JUMP at this opportunity!
