The Experience

It's all a matter of keeping things clean, always eyes open for dusty corners or trash bins that need to be emptied. Also, take out breakfast in the morning and close the kitchen at night. Cleaning rooms and common areas and all this with joy and precision. And of course, always, be friendly and welcoming to our guests and make everyone feel at home :)

My experience in Jungle Jaffa was amazing!
Since the first days I’ve been introduced by staff and the other volunteers to this new environment, and I had the opportunity to meet many people from all around the world.
The volunteering experience has been such an adventure, and what I’ve appreciated the most has been the collaboration among us volunteers.
Other than that, the environment is stimulating and the vibe is friendly and cozy, I’m happy to consider this place as home😊

Jungle Jaffa hostel was such a great experience! The tasks were either cleaning/maintenance or reception, and volunteers had their schedule the week ahead, which was really great for planning your free time activities and trips. The people in the hostel and the atmosphere were truly amazing and chilled, I felt more than comfortable from the start! You spend time with volunteers as well as locals so you really get the full experience. And of course, Tel Aviv is a beautiful city with a lot of tourist attractions and nightlife, so you don't have to be scared of getting bored at all.

Hey Janka!! We love you and we are so lucky to have had you working with us. You did an amazing job. Always on time, always focused and pleasant. We hope you'll come back again!!



I loved my stay in Overstay. I had a very nice and unforgotable time. Very close to Jaffa old city and the beach. I am in love with Tel Aviv, what can I say about it. Thanks a lot Danie for your support and love, It will be in heart forever, and I will truly miss it. If you want to have a very nice experience, do not hesitate to volunteer at this place.

Overstay Jaffa is my house in Israel! I can’t put in words how much I like and appreciate everything about this place... if you are looking to volunteer in Tel Aviv, be sure this is the right hostel! It’s my second time here and I’m sure I’ll keep coming back! Adir and Kira, I love you guys ❤️

My overall experience of hosts and hostel is positive, maybe except from location - it's really quite far away from central Tel Aviv. It's a bit different with working hours and tasks - remember, you will be LITERALLY running a hostel since there is almost no paid staff there except from two receptionists. Tasks are serious, it's 6 hours of day and night (3-9 am reception shift!!) stuffed with things to do, so almost a full time job. Food budget is a good thing though. Other activities, like going for grocery shopping, vegetables picking or staff meeting will be also taking your free time.
