As a mother, my most joyful moments are those which I spend with my daughters. Meeting new people and places is the other part of life that completes this joy for me. What I dream for my historic country and its rich culture is to be seen and understood by the people around the world. I believe “Hi Tehran Hostel” can be one of the best opportunities to reach this agenda. Through this passionate welcoming context, my dream can come true. I feel so blessed just by thinking about the amazing people I’m going to meet and the awesome memories we’re going to share.

masoud Hi Tehran Staff


I am Masoud. I live in Tehran for 5 years now and thankfully it dropped me here in HI TEHRAN; a place which is a perfect match with what I want out of life. I’m from Bookan, a Kurdish city in northwestern Iran. I got my BSc of Computer Engineering in Isfahan University of Technology. Then I starts my graduate studies in Artificial Intelligence field in University of Tehran, but didn’t finish it. Because I realized the literature, writing and philosophy is what I enjoy the most, and soon enough it became my priority and made my try journalism and content managing. Right now, I enjoy working with HI TEHRAN TEAM. In this way, I see many cool, free spirited people with different backgrounds and yet, I have my free time to write something. Serious skin above the biggest golden heart beneath the surface, is my deal most of the tim.

Rashed Hi Tehran Staff


I am Rashed. A 27 years old from the city of Sanandaj, Kurdistan. I had my undergraduate studies in electrical engineering in Isfahan University of Technology and then my masters in Metro mechanics in University of Tehran. I studied English language as a hobby when I was a teenager and then polished it through online media. I’m very and I mean very interested in football. Tracking football matches and also playing is one of my priorities in the spare time; other ones are books and movies I find working in HI TEHRAN HOSTEL very appealing, because I have the chance to see a lot of people from all over the world, to be familiar with a variety of experiences, beliefs, trends and ideas and make a dialogue out of them. One of my goals in the future is to travel as much as I can, to have a closer communication with different cultures.

Hi Tehran Staff


I am Misha. When I learned about the existence of HI TEHRAN Arena, I felt a massive rush of blood in my head. My pupils dilated as I imagined the challenges I could face. So, I longed to face opponents from the four corners of the world. No longer bound by the color of identity scrolls, I relished at talking adventurous travelers into buying things they didn’t need and visiting places they didn’t care for. I took every opportunity to point pilgrims at the direction of fancy taverns, scholars to mount Damavand, treasure hunters to bowling alleys, and most importantly, warriors to carwashes. With misled challengers, I remained the champion of HI TEHRAN Arena for ages. The dark day which HI TEHRAN Arena changed its name and function into HI TEHRAN HOSTEL, and moved to a comfortable place, I had to abandon all my prior crafts, deceit, cunning, trickery, were all deemed ‘inappropriate’ now. I had to be honest, nice, gentle, caring, fair, and worst of all, welcoming. I was a shadow of the deceiver I used to be. Scarred and vengeful, I await for my chance to pounce at the clueless adventurers and misleading them once again. But until the arena rises from ashes again, I’ll host normally, I promise

Hi Tehran Staff


I am Mohsen and I’m almost incapable of describing myself with the words; which I have absolutely no problem with it All I can say is that every time a guest, a traveler, a backpacker or better said, a potential future friend, reach HI TEHRAN HOSTEL, I can’t feel anything but pure pleasure. Direct interacting and connecting beyond emails, visa procedures, borders, and passports, is cherished for me, no matter what. My package as a professional animator, music lover, introverted person, and also a sense of humor digger, helps me to relate to cool free spirited travelers. And if it helps in any way, I am a total cat love.
