Our Hostels

  • You have the opportunity to volunteer with any one of our three beautiful hostels (or more than one if you stay for 9 weeks or more!)
  • Tel Aviv: A large, lively hostel in the city center. We host concerts and parties at our bar and rooftop, in addition to daily activities from local beer tasting to our beach hangout! The hostel is located in a convenient spot, only a 2-minute walk from Rothschild Boulevard, between the restaurants and nightlife, with easy access to public transportation. And most importantly of course, just a 20 minute walk from the beach!
  • Jerusalem: A large hostel with a homey, small hostel vibe. We host concerts and activities on a daily basis at our bar and beautiful rooftop with everything from the legendary hummus making workshop to the open mic night. The hostel is situated in the center of Jerusalem with easy access to public transportation. It’s just a 2-minute walk to the best market in the middle east - Mahane Yehuda, a 7-minute walk to Jerusalem’s unique, alternative nightlife scene and a 15-minute walk to the amazing old city.
  • Nazareth: Fauzi Azar is a gorgeous 200-year old mansion turned hostel, located in the heart of Nazareth’s historical old town. Perfect for travelers looking to get away from the noise and chill in a beautiful location, surrounded by friendly people and good food. As a volunteer in Nazareth, you’ll immediately feel part of the family. It’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in this culturally diverse area, get to know the Arab culture and a different side of Israel. Located in the heart of the Galilee, Nazareth is a perfect starting point to explore northern Israel’s beautiful nature and historical sites, or spend a day at the beach on the Sea of Galilee.
  • What we’re looking for
  • Friendly, hard-working and out-going individuals who love travel and people, and will take an active part of the social atmosphere at our hostels. To apply you must:
  • Be between 21-35 years old
  • Commit to 6-9 weeks
  • Have a good command of English
  • Have experience traveling and staying at hostels
  • Be out-going and motivated to contribute on a daily basis to the hostel
  • Be flexible and have a high work ethic.
  • Come with a *work hard, play hard* attitude
  • Be a non-Israeli foreigner
  • The work
  • Volunteers work 5 days a week, 6 hours a day. Among other things, you help serve breakfast, help run evening social events, assist at the bar and escort guests to the starting point of free walking tours.
  • The benefits
  • In exchange, you get free accommodation in a mixed-gender dorm room, occupied only by hostel volunteers. The room includes a shower and toilet, WiFi and air conditioning. Volunteers have free access to all hostel facilities - guest kitchen, TV room, lounge, rooftop terrace and laundry. In addition, volunteers get free breakfast, 50% off at the bar, and most tours for free, based on availability. On your days off, you can stay at our other two hostels (those you are not currently volunteering in) for free, based on availability.
  • Who are we?

    Abraham Hostels & Tours are a group of fun, friendly hostels that cater to independent travelers looking to explore Israel and experience our beautiful country, and the Middle East to the fullest. Our three hostels are located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Nazareth and we operate tours all around Israel, the West Bank, Egypt and Jordan! To us, a hostel is more than just a place, it’s all about the people. Our staff and volunteers work hard to make our hostels a warm and welcoming place for our guests and provide them with the best experience possible. Volunteering with us is an opportunity to interact with like-minded travelers from different backgrounds and make new friends. You’ll get to experience Israel like a local - the nightlife, the beaches, the history and the hummus! As we say in Israel - Yalla - come work with us.

    Testimonials 

    Hanna | Germany

    “As I am a student on a budget, volunteering in a hostel was a great opportunity to travel for the whole summer.

    The Abraham Hostel is a great hostel, a great place to work and definitely an even greater place to chill in my favorite place – the rocking chairs in the lounge. During my stay here I had the great pleasure to meet a lot of interesting and different travelers from all over the world.

    Their stories made me feel like I traveled a lot more countries than only Israel. Israel is a great country as well. I participated in several Abraham tours and also discovered a lot of places by myself.”
