HYVE Jerusalem hosted by STAY INN JERUSALEM

We are a young dynamic hostel in the heart of the city of Jerusalem where all major religious faiths meet and historical and modern Israel can be experienced. Normally we aim to have around 6 volunteers at any given moment so there is always something going on and you can meet people from everywhere around the world. The Volunteer Program combines helping duties in the hotel various departments with group activities to enrich the experience in Israel.

We have our tours in Jerusalem and Israel operation, so volunteers get to join tours that we operate. We also have a weekly meeting sort of a lecture about interesting topics like Israel's history, cultural complexity etc. So volunteers will have a good opportunity to get to know the cultural, religious and historical side of Jerusalem and Israel.

This is not a paid position. Israeli laws prevent business from paying a salary to tourist without a working permit, so we cannot pay for duty hours. This is a volunteering position in our volunteer program hosting volunteers for no charge on a Bed and Breakfast basis in the hostel, for participating in a program that includes group activities, informative lectures and materials, to get familiar with history, geography and culture for personal experience and to provide help and knowledge helping other visitors to enrich their experience in Israel. Volunteers also spend time helping out the various departments of the hostel (helping to prepare the breakfast buffet and organizing and cleaning the common areas) getting familiar first hand with how we host people, and improving the experience of guests. We always appreciate it when volunteers can contribute a special skills, like playing an instrument or photography.

The minimum period to stay in the program is 3 weeks.
Please notice that entering the program means you are hosted in the hostel as a guest and participants enter the program accept the terms of the program and the house rules that applies to guests.

Hope to see you soon,
and a good time until then.

Kind regards,

The Stay Inn Hostel

The atmosphere in the hostel is relaxed, open minded and helpful. The staff is on a friendly basis and there is always room for jokes. You will be treated like a friend and not like a workforce.

It was such a great experience volunteering at Stay Inn! Nice Staff! I’ve got a good connection with my Volunteers’ Team, the tasks and schedules were manageable. The cool thing is, if you have special needs when it comes about your schedule, they take them into consideration. The breakfast it’s delicious 😋, the vibe of this hostel is really cool! I will miss this place and all the amazing people I met here.
Angelina and Oscar, were always nice with the volunteers. Thank you guys for this opportunity!

I definitely recommend their volunteering program !! 🤩

My experience working in Stay Inn Hostel was amazing! I could not even describe how this oportunity has fullfilled my expectations. Oscar and Angelina, the managers, are so kind and you always can contact them if you need help or any special request. Also, all the staff from the reception and from the restaurant are always ready to help you and make your voluntearing as much enjoyable as possible. The work is easy and we made a great team with the rest of the volunteers. I would say that share this experience with all of them has been the best part of all the experience.

I can't recommend Stayinn hostel enough! ✨️ What a great time I've had out there. For 3 weeks I called this place my home away from home. And I loved it. From the nice collegues to the great atmosphere, the interesting guests to the work you do over there. The hours are really reasonable and during the rest of your day you have enough time to explore what Israël has to offer.

I couldn't have wished for a better first volunteering experience at Worldpackers :)
