The Experience

Help us make this the number 1 hostel in TEL AVIV! Volunteers in our hostel do: cleaning, maintenance, cooking and other than that we are looking for people that can preform in front of the hostels guests, do wall paintings or organize great parties! Every volunteer works 5 hours a day, 5 days a week - this means 2 days free every week - we prefer the days off not to be in the weekends. We have a team dorm & food fund for the volunteer team!

The hostel is a fantastic place with wonderful people. Lior, Noa and manager Maya are amazing people who make the place have a magical and very friendly atmosphere. I 100% recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to do volunteer work.

The hostel is the best volunteer experience I think you could have, you work 4 days a week, all shifts are reception with minimal cleaning and just a few daily chores, you work Three 5Hour shifts and One 9Hour Night Shift (00:00-09:00). Maya the manager is incredible and just a sweet soul who would do anything to make you feel at home and help you if you have a problem. During my stay we got 250nis twice a week for team groceries which when managed right worked out but can be a struggle when you have a lot of volunteers but this system was changing the week I left. Overall highly recommend

I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel!!Mostly because I met so many new people from all over the world which became really good friends for me. All the volunteers were great and I felt comfortable really quick! The work includes basically everything that needs to be done in a hostel. Check ins, cleaning, organising etc. Most of the time the work is really chilled and you can socialise with people a lot during your shifts. Sometimes it gets stressful and difficult situations appear, where I would have wished to have someone around that can take responsibility and assist.

I really adored and cherish my time at the hostel. I met the coolest people ever, I was so reluctant to leave. The guests & volunteers make this experience so much better. Maya (the new manager) is so caring and attentive. Work isn't draining, it's simple and often you'll be socializing with everyone while working. Sometimes when issues happened it was hard to know what to do especially if you're new and no one's around. But I really recommend coming here.

The hostel was both amazing and horrible. The good: other volunteers, the city of Tel Aviv, the location, guests, hours were accurate (25 per week). I love the people I met and we really feel like family. The bad: I didn't like the host's behavior. Gave us less than $1 per person, per day for food and we had to beg for more. The hostel is very dirty and we felt bad when he asked us to clean it (cockroaches, flooded bathroom). He kicked out 3 volunteers while I was there because in my opinion he seems to be on a power trip and almost didn't let me leave this review, saying I was a no-show.

This Is our side of the Story With Olivia:
During Olivia's Reception shift - 2 Volunteers made an attempt to break inside one of our private caravans while a guest was sleeping inside - in the middle of the night.
This guest came to the front desk to complain about this attempt, at the front desk he met Olivia. The guest told hostel management that Olivia made him feel uncomfortable when he complained to her about the situation. He also stated that Olivia laughed at him in front of other guests.
A few hours later this guest wanted to call the police due to what happened at night time when Olivia was on shift.
At this point the house management came to the house to convince the guest not to call the police, the guest was upgraded to a private room and 4,000 NIS (1,300 USD) was refunded to his credit card.

From that Night and morning Olivia exposed, in my opinion, bad behavior and spread negative energy and bad vibes in our house and team.
This is the first time a situation like this has happened to us over more than 10 years of hostel management- we are still in shock from the behavior of the volunteers that were involved in this.

As a result of this extreme case, hostel management released the volunteers that were a part of this scandal.
Another side of Olivia's Toxic Behaviour as we learned from other team members is to shout around the house: "I'm from NYC i don't know how to clean / cook/ do laundry"- We didn't like this behaviour, since we had many people from NYC that did an amazing job in cooking/cleaning/laundry.

Bottom line: We wouldn't recommend any hostel\ business\ organization to accept / recruit Olivia, cause we had a negative experience due to her toxic behavior."
