One-of-a-kind guesthouse in the Deheisha Refugee Camp! The apartment is attached to my family home. Three generations of Alfararja live in this mini compound. My grandmother tends chickens and fruit trees in the backyard, my mother, who lives upstairs, loves the opportunity to cook for our guests. I offer alternative tours of Palestine and have been featured in the BBC, NYTimes, Haaretz and Rai. If you’d like to add a tour to your trip, message me!

The space
The guesthouse is an a whole apartment with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, kitchen, and two private entrances. It is attached to a shaded terrace, and our backyard orchard.

The Deheisha Refugee Camp is 15 minutes by car from Historic Bethlehem, and 5 minutes from the Bethlehem-Jerusalem bus station “Bab al Zaqaq.”  The camp was founded by the UN 73 years ago in 1949.  The camp is one of the more secular spaces in Palestine. Residents are open-minded and love meeting guests.

I am a third-generation refugee, born in the Deheisha Refugee Camp. I have been lucky enough to live abroad, and my time in other countries opened my eyes and expanded my perspective. I believe that travel can be more than a vacation. When we befriend people of other cultures, we can make meaningful connections that allow us to grow as individuals and hopefully, make the world a better place. I offer alternative tours of Palestine, taking guests to cities that aren’t shown on TV (and to ancient, continuously-inhabited villages in the South Hebron Hills that are excluded from Israeli maps). I’ve been featured on the BBC, NYTimes, Haaretz and Rai. I love what I do. Facilitating exchange between Palestinians and travelers helps me believe that a free and peaceful future is possible. My foreign friends bring me hope. I speak English, Russian and Arabic. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I know that traveling to Palestine for the first time can feel intimidating. I’m happy to talk-through concerns and offer advice.

During your stay

Authentic Palestinian meals can be arranged according to your needs.

We understand that everyone’s travel itineraries are unique. While our guests bring us joy, we also respect their privacy. This apartment has a private entrance and your level of interaction is completely up to you. And as with many AirBnbs, there are special offers for long-term stays. 

There is no liquor store in the camp, but I keep a small bar in my kitchen.
