Volunteer at simsim guesthouse

Are you interested to join us as a Volunteer? Part of our guesthouse concept is to work with volunteers. We like to improve the way and the system we are working in. We need to have the “fresh breeze” of people, who like to share our work and life for a period of time. For a minimum time of three weeks a volunteer will share all kind of guesthouse work, i.e. preparing breakfast, washing dishes, changing sheets, reception work, talking to the guests, searching for bus schedules … there are also quiet hours during the day and in the evening, which is less working and more presence time. For presence hours / working hours of 6 h/day in average (1 day off/week) we offer bed and breakfast + the opportunity to stay in a very special city in the Galilee + many tips + advantages for traveling. Read the feedback of some of our volunteers …

Henrik (Jan2016)

I stayed in simsim for almost three months and could not have hoped for a better place to volunteer in Israel. Instantly the city memorized me. The people, small shops and narrow streets will probably stick with me all my life. But most of all – Sami and Silke, the...

Henry (Jan2016)

“After seven weeks of volunteering at simsim I leave Nazareth incredibly grateful for my time here. It is somehow a vibrant and quiet city, perfect if you are looking for something different but relaxing. The work was straightforward (preparing breakfast and rooms, cleaning, checking in guests) and never strenuous. A...

It was a countless experience for me. About Israel, about Nazareth, about hospitality in hostel, about new people, about travellers. Now I am full of new friends all over the world, I full of inspiration, ideas. It is a great value. It was what I looked for.

Katleen (Nov.2015)

After spending a month in Jordan, I wanted to discover Israel. Instead of travelling around, I preferred to stay on one place and discover the region and his residents. Most people ask me, why Nazareth? It was in fact like choosing a book by his cover or let us call...

Michelle (Oct.2015)

After I decided to volunteer in Nazareth I knew I was going to have the adventure of a lifetime. I wasn’t sure what to expect. So many questions raced around my mind. Is it safe? Will I enjoy myself? What if I don’t like my hosts? Would I even be...

I had the pleasure to stay at Simsim Guesthouse for 3 weeks and I enjoyed every second of it.

After having seen only Tel Aviv before arriving in Nazareth, the town was my first real look into the different cultures and people that make Israel such an interesting and diverse country....

A remarkable summer

It was June and I still didn’t have any summer plans. By choosing to travel to Israel I expected a different summer, near Europe but away from the typical touristic centres.I ended up in Nazareth, as I could have spent my august in Tel-Aviv or Jerusalem. I actually...

Atreyu (Aug.2015)

The first thing that came into my mind while arriving in Israel was something like “Oh damn, what did I get myself into.” Yes, the border control scared the shit out of me. If you think that the first impression is the most important one… you never have been that...

Laura (July 2015)

Travelling to Nazareth was my second volunteer experience and my first time travelling outside of Europe. I loved my time in Israel and Simsim, so much that just a few minutes ago I mentioned to my mum, again, that I miss it there.

I remember being dropped off at the...

Ramzy (June 2015)

Volunteering in Nazareth is a great way to connect with a side of Israel often neglected by the average traveler. Nazareth is a city which strives to preserve its history while perfecting its culinary game. In the 3 weeks I was working at simsim, 4 new restaurants opened up in...

Marhaba! Hola! My name is Elvis and I am from Mexico. Let me tell you about one the most beautiful experiences in my life and about Nazareth, a city I’m sure I’ll come back to some day.

When I first came to the city, everything was so different. At least...

Be careful about coming to Nazareth….you will not want to leave!

To keep it short, my stay in Nazareth was one of the best experiences abroad so far, especially because of the owners, Sami and Silke, who let me be part of their world.
It is true – volunteering should be...

Ginevra (Feb 2014)

When I arrived in Nazareth, it was already night. In front of the Church, there was a lot of people in the shops, cars honking every second. Just get off from the bus, I found an old man with an orange juice in his hands, “welcome to Nazareth”,...

Elisa-Sophie (Feb 2014)

Von Anfang Februar an habe ich vier Wochen im simsim guesthouse in der Altstadt von Nazareth als “volunteer” gearbeitet. In der Regel war ich so sechs, sieben Stunden im Hostel zu wechselnden Zeiten. Die Aufgaben hingen immer von der Schicht ab. Morgens muss Frühstück machen, abwaschen, Betten ab- und neu...

Mike (Jan 2014)

I shouldn’t have felt comfortable in Nazareth, given the bizarre mixture of church bells, calls to prayer, and throaty vowels that filled the air – but I did. Sami’s and Silke’s hospitality, and their colorful friends, were mostly responsible: the work was reasonable (from washing dishes to painting walls) and...

My short reelection statement on my time at simsim

Signing up to volunteer anywhere can be a daunting, and anxiety-filled experience. There can be many questions, e.g. will I get on with my employer and fellow volunteers? Or maybe, will I feel isolated in the community as I cannot speak their...

Shwaiy-shwaiy.

Word is on the street there is not much to do in Nazareth, with the benefit of experience I now beg to differ.
Its very true one has to seek to find, but its worth it !
If you make the time this is a perfect place to rest on...

Jana (Aug. 2013)

Ich war im Sommer 2013 für vier Wochen Volontärin im simsim guesthouse in Nazareth und habe meine Zeit dort sehr genossen. Ich konnte viele wertvolle Erfahrungen machen und habe tolle Leute kennengelernt. Es war sehr interessant, einerseits den Alltag der Einwohner mitzuerleben, auch hinter die “Touristenfassade” blicken zu können und...
