    Spending some time abroad and experiencing how people live in a different country is an impressive and very enriching experience. After all, travelling contributes to one’s education – and how much more so does a trip that offers insights behind the tourism scenes and makes authentic experiences possible.

    We offer a full equip kitchen where you can cook and eat together with the other volunteers and guest. ( If you have any cooking skills you can develop the talent and if not you can learn!) You can use our bikes, longboards, laundry, internet, garden, live music, couch, breakfast, pancakes & pasta nights! We have the sweetest hostel cat Suzy!
