Session description

All hostels would like to have only happy guests, but it’s not always the case. Which means do hostel owners/manager have in order to bring the “right” customers to their place, while still maintaining their business goals? Join Yaron Burgin of Abraham Hostels and Tours for a discussion on achieving a good guest fit at your hostel


Yaron Burgin is CEO and Co-founder of the Abraham Group. The group operates Israel’s largest independent hostel, Abraham Hostel, and Abraham Tours, a tour company offering day trips, transportation services and multi-day packages in Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, and Egypt.
Yaron was born and raised in the city of Holon next to Tel-Aviv. He studied law and business at the Hebrew Univesrity in Jerusalem. Three months prior to his graduation he decided to cancel his law internship in a fancy law firm and pursue a career in business instead. He went to work for an international high-tech company as a pre-sale engineer in the sales department. After a year and a half on the job, he decided to travel again like he had before university and also explore more of Israel. A month of backpacking in Israel led him to new business partners and the creation of Israel Hostels (ILH) and eventually Abraham Hostels and Tours.
Abraham Hostels and Tours offers exceptional travel experiences throughout the Middle East for independent travellers, families, small groups and business travellers. In 2020 the group will launch their newest and largest hostel in the resort town of Eilat on the shores of the Red Sea, bordering Egypt and Jordan.
