  • Description


    Thank you for your application! We try to get back to each one of you in a swift amount of time but due to thehigh number of applicants we unfortunately can't keep that promise every time. Please excuse some waiting time for our replies!

    We are a self-managed hostel with a small team of 5 people. We opened the place 7 years ago. Each room has its own individual style, because each was designed by different artists. We want to offer our guests a great stay and are always trying to give them tips on what to do in the city. Especially in summer, in addition to hostel operations, we have other events such as weddings, readings or parties. Since two summers we established a small beer garden in our backyard which is open for locals and tourists.

    We are looking for open-minded people. Two friends or a couple is great, as you are staying in the same flat together. We are only accepting requests for 2-month stays. Regarding 2022, we look for two people for the periods March + April / May + June / July + August / September + October.

    We need you mainly to help out with cleaning. Especially in the summer months there will be also help needed for the beer garden, weedings, events and gardening.
    When you wanna work with us, you should know that we are not the typical backpacker-place. During the week it's quiet and at the weekend it gets a bit more busy. The work is mainly cleaning, gardening, barkeeping and hanging out with other guests, but you can also create your own projects such as cooking, music events or graphic work for advertising on our website. It also depends on what your strengths are and what you feel like doing. But in general we are looking for people who are not shy and love to communicate with others.

    You'll have 2 days off per week. And the 15hours will be divided on the other 5 days.

    We offer you accomondation and payment. The payment is according to the mimimum wage per hour in Germany.
