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.

Web Developer

I am the web developer at HI TEHRAN HOSTEL. One of my main passions is to learn about different digital operations and applying them to Hi Tehran’s success. My skills are mostly rooted in analysis, strategy, problem solving and mobilizing parties involved in the objectives accomplishment.

In addition to my web development activities and Search Engine Optimization abilities, participating in the Digital Marketing criteria along with the HI TEHRAN TEAM, have maximized my experience in this field. Associating as digital market director and monitoring the trends and mainstreams are also some parts of my associations in HI TEHRAN.
I grew up in Isfahan and moved to Tehran to attend Electrical Eng. Dept. at KNTU. When I’m not at HI TEHRAN, I can be found behind my camera practicing my photography, trekking in the nature or exploring city sites. And one thing for sure, all of my activities as a professional web developer, can’t interfere with my love for watching movies, traveling and enjoying friends’ companionship.

Amir Hosein

Team Member

I am Amir Hosein. As a 26 years old I think there is just one path to find out who am I inside and that is My choices and preferences. I got my bsc of Civil engineering and then I started my master studies in MBA field in Sharif University of Technology but I choosed not to finish it. Because I realized that I am more concerned with human nature than economical and competitive mental conflicts and that way I choosed to to express my feelings and impressions by photography and filmmaking. I just want to get things that blur all the other things I’ve lost in my life. In HI TEHRAN HOSTEL I can communicate and make friendship with many cool and travel lover people from all over the world with variety of cultures and experiences and stories. See with your heart and Say with your mind; that’s the Way.

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.

I love to travel. And that’s why I chose to study environmental science at university and spent a lot of time in nature as an environmentalist and tried to protect wildlife and reduce human/wildlife conflicts. Recently I joined HI Tehran Hostel team, trying to host travelers from all over the world. There is nothing I love more than traveling, to discover a new culture or nature or meet new people.
Here at HI Tehran Hostel, I meet new people with new and interesting stories with amazing and sometimes insane experiences. And it feels like I’m traveling with and through every single guest. So I’m really grateful for having this experience with all of you.

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.
