Founder & Manager
Despite working in different fields; Agriculture, Civil engineering, Urban planning and management, I’ve been keen on the tourism industry. In addition to that, being an entrepreneur was always my vision and ambition. These agendas brought me to the point of co-founding HI Tehran Hostels. For me, the passion I feel toward my work which helps me to be recalcitrant through hard days, is way more important than the other aspects. Managing a team as a woman and at the same time as a mother is work through when a combination of spirit and determination takes the reins.
It was always interesting and fascinating for me to travel around Iran and to see the diversity of Iranian people’s culture, customs and also Iran’s nature. As a musician, I was able to satisfy part of this interest by studying and listening to music from various parts of Iran. And now working in Hi Tehran Hostel II has made me more in touch with my country as well as other cultures and countries. My name is Ashkan. I was born in 1989 in Isfahan. I studied Physics as the undergraduate studies, but I made a shift to Persian Music for the master, which is my biggest passion in life. When I was 12 I started learning Setar (Iranian traditional music instrument) and now it has been 18 years, I am playing. I also have a chance to play and practice in the hostel when I have free time. The most attractive part of working in Hi Tehran Hostel is meeting people from all over the world, providing them an enjoyable vibe, help them and talk to them about different issues, including culture, history, art, different lifestyles and so on.
My name is Rashed. I’m 29 years old and I’ve been in this field since 2015. I’m from Kurdistan, Sanandaj, so my mother tongue is Kurdish, but I speak Farsi and English too. Hospitality was always a big deal in my family, and I guess I have inherited that from my parents and ancestors. I also have this obsession with doing everything perfectly, which is one of the reasons I got this job. Watching movies, reading books, watching and playing football, and traveling are my favorite hobbies. I’m always open to good conversations, pretty much about everything. I’ve never been to any other country, but it’s definitely a goal for me to see the world in the near future. My name is Ashkan. I was born in 1989 in Isfahan.

I am Mousa. Migrated to Iran 37 years ago from Afghanistan. I have done different jobs since then, but mostly in agriculture and Animal husbandry section. I love to learn to speak different languages. That’s why after working in Hi Tehran Hostel I have started to learn some basic functional words and phrases in English, Dutch, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, Polish and Pashto. I have four kids. One of them lives in Germany and I wish I can take my whole family to live in Europe one day.

Hi! My name is Mostafa. I’m 28 and I live in Tehran which is the capital of Iran. Actually I come from another province – Hamadan, where I lived for 18 years, but ten years ago, i moved to Tehran to continued my studies in university. I studied mechanical engineering Msc. in Iran university of science and technology. I’m interested in movies, music and literature.I find working in HI TEHRAN HOSTEL very appealing, because you know we travel to see people, nature, places and i think visiting people is the most important thing in traveling, so 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, kind of experiencing “travel around the world”! And also the team working here are so young and fresh and of course friendly.
I am Khodabakhsh from Daykundi province near Kabul in Afghanistan. We immigrated to Iran 38 years ago and started to work in Mashhad in the first few years. I had to move to different cities in all those years. I went back to Kabul in 2004 with my family, hoping we could stay there and start a new life. But the unstable situation forced us to come back to Iran again and settle in Tehran. I have three sons and my biggest wish is for Afghanistan to get back on track, so I can live in my own country.

I am Amir Mohammad Mirlohi, 19 years old from Iran, who has a great interest in web developing and started cooperating with Hi Tehran Hostel Team from late 2019. My father was an expert in documentary film making, so I had his computer and other working equipment as my main my childhood toys. Seeing my passion, when I turned 9, he bought me a windows educational package and I started to get more familiar with the web world. I began my career with designing themes for blogs to gain experience and I achieved many prizes for them since I was really working from the bottom of my heart. When I decided to have my own website, I started to self educate myself and get to know different CMSs and learn programming language. That was how I started my professional career. My motto in life? never giving up on trying to achieve your dreams and hoping for the best to come.
