Abraham Hostel is a fun, friendly hostel in Tel Aviv. We try to be a place that provides for the needs of independent travelers and gives them a great experience in our city, and to show them the best Israel has to offer. The hostel is situated in a convenient spot, only 2 minutes walk from Rothschild Boulevard, between the restaurants and nightlife, with easy access to public transport. Volunteers will quickly become part of the vibrant city of Tel Aviv, and get a chance to travel and explore the rest of Israel and the West Bank on days off.
Information about the volunteer program in Tel Aviv
The volunteers at the hostel quickly become an integral part of the staff, acting as a bridge between the guests and staff, and contributing to the social atmosphere of the hostel. Volunteering at Abraham Hostel is an opportunity to interact with people from very different countries and backgrounds. Among other things, volunteers help serve breakfast, plan and run evening social events, assist at the bar and escort guests to the pick-up point for the free walking tour.
The volunteers live in a 6-8-bed mixed-sex dorm room, occupied solely by hostel volunteers. The room includes a shower and toilet, full length mirror, WiFi, air conditioning, and a small fridge. Volunteers are also welcome to use the hostel facilities such as the communal kitchen, TV lounge, bar, and rooftop terrace. The daily breakfast provided is free for the volunteers.
Requirements for volunteers
- Age 21-35
- A 6-9 week commitment. During that time, volunteers will work 5 times a week for 5-6 hours at a time.
- Good level of English
- Experienced travelers who have stayed in several hostels before

“Two years ago I volunteered at Abraham Hostel Jerusalem, and I liked it so much that I decided to come back to Israel, but this time to Tel Aviv. As a history student I studied a lot about the region at university, so spending my summer in the hostel was a great opportunity to meet with local people and learn a lot about the country. My time here meant so much more to me than just working in the hostel: I had great times with my lovely volunteer colleagues and the regular staff members, I met tourists from all over the world, and I went on amazing tours, like Massada, Haifa, Eilat, a Kibbutz, and several cities in the Westbank. I really enjoyed spending my holidays in Abraham, and I can recommend it to everyone!!”

“Although I came to Israel several times because my parents are Israelis, this time, I left America for travelling a couple of months and Israel was on my list. I really do not regret coming here as I love the people, the food and visiting different cities in the country. I found this volunteering program on the internet and I applied because I thought that it would be an interesting opportunity. I like spending my time in the hostel, getting to know people from many countries and I also enjoy all the events that take place in the hostel and in Tel Aviv. This city has lot to offer; the beach, international food and many free activities. Come to join Abraham Hostel Staff!”

“I had the possibility to come to Israel just as a tourist last year. This time, I wanted to do something else and the best way I found was being a volunteer, while combining having an amazing experience at the best hostel in the Middle East and also getting to explore the country. I love history and culture so Israel was THE place. The people at Abraham Hostel are really nice, there are a lot of events going on, concerts, workshops…and I even learnt how to cook shakshuka and hummus, typical dishes from the Middle East cuisine. Also, you can enjoy the lively city of Tel Aviv. If you are planning to volunteer here, I am convinced you will not regret it and you will want to come back soon!”

“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 travelled 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.”
