    Description

    Seems like we are finally fully staffed for 2019 :)

    Have you ever dreamt of spending a summer like in Heidi or The Sound Of Music? If you like nature, quality food and communicating with people, you will have a blast staying and working with us.

    My family has been running this hostel/lodge/inn since the beginning, 80 years ago, so we live tourism from the bottom of our hearts. Our guests can expect a unique stay with us, and so can you. We accomodate mostly backpackers, who are on transalpine tracks, or couples/families/friends, who want to get away from their hussles in their everyday routines and enjoy some days in the mountains. We are surrounded by glorious peaks, but the nationalpark lechvalley in general has a lot to offer: swimming pools, plenty of outdoor activities, several events, grocery and sports shops. There is no cinema, fashion store or nightclub, but if you are outgoing, you will meet some amazing characters staying with us.
    I won't be there for some weeks as well when I am not travelling, and my brother, who is a teacher, will check in every now and then to make sure everybody is happy. My parents are both hardworking and beautiful souls; they will be like your parents and they are lookig forward improving their English. Especially mum is always a good person talking to. Because we have a restaurant attached to our place, you never have to worry about food. Even a scoop of ice cream and some pints of beers are all yours!

    As I am a nomad, I had some workaway experiences in different continents, that’s why I know exactly what it feels like and I try my best giving you all the information you need and being there for you even when I am not there. I love the concept of staying in a place longer and getting to know the culture, therefore I introduced my family to this awesome platform. We've had the most amazing experience with 10 volunteers in 2018 and are looking forward to welcome more awesome souls. I am sure you won’t regret being part of our family and experiencing the real Austrian lifestyle, far away from Vienna and all that jazz.

    Any questions or queries are welcome at any time and I hope you will have an amazing stay here.

    The Alps are one sight in the world that can't be visited, it has to be experienced. Some people call it paradise, just because of the scenery! Staying with my family will be a great cultural experience for you and you will get some pretty good joking skills, I promise.

    If you have an outgoing personality and few German skills, you will probably help serving our guests or checking them in. Both our chef and the housekeeping lady are always grateful for a hand wherever support is needed, whereas my dad probably occasionally comes up with some tasks around the house, like painting, lawn mowing etc. Work is not going to be too hard, but you won't be bored either!

    We have a twin staff room for our volunteers with a curtain in between for some privacy. Depending on the time of the season we might even have a free single room.
    There is a staff shared bathroom and a 'bunker', where the team can hang out and relax.
    All meals and WIFI are included of course.
