Program Details

Daily help includes cleaning and making the beds, explaining the guests about the area, work in the garden and from time to time some building and art projects. Together we also create a good atmosphere in the guest house. We are not going to lie to you - a big part of the help is cleaning the hostel and keeping it clean but most people find it a place they like to keep clean.

In return you will get to live in a beautiful place where people come for vacations, and the guest house will provide everything you need. A comfortable bed in the room, food supply (volunteers cook their own meals), the feeling of home, and a lot of free time and priceless tips to enjoy the area.


Activities & Shift

As our volunteer you will be welcome to stay for free in other hostels all over Israel and use your days off to travel and see other parts of this small but diverse country.


Rules

If you are looking for a place to party and put in minimal effort to get a bed, this is not the place for you. If you are looking to be part of a winning team that provides a great working atmosphere and lots of benefits, go find a job that promises all of this.

But if you want to be a part of a family that believes we work hard so that we can play hard, then this might be a good place for you to check out. We could promise all these magical things to get you to come work here but in the end the magic is in you and the other helpers.

We want you to be a part of the guest house. Someone who loves and cares about it the way we do. We want you to be excited to get the place ready to welcome new travelers but we also want you to be excited to meet the new travelers.
