5 Elements Hostel Leipzig

If you want to really experience Leipzig, our Hostel is the right place for you. Clubs and Bars are really close to us and our staff can show you all of the hidden treasures our City has to offer. We are famous for our Zoo and even when you are short on money, you can see the animals from the park, directly next to it. We have tons of festivals in our area starting with our Wave Gotik Meet up, that Leipzig is famous for.

Our Staff is like a really big and weird family. We welcome everyone and all of us are excited to meet new people. We all come from different backgrounds, so don´t be shy :). If you should ever have a problem, you can come to us at any time!

¡Linda experiencia!! Este fue mi primer voluntariado y no pude encontrar mejor lugar que 5Elements en Leipzig :D. Todo el staff es muy amable y las tareas no son nada difíciles! Por cierto, la ciudad es muy económica y linda, lleno de parques, lagos, museos y bares. Tendrás mucho tiempo para disfrutarlos. Los súper recomiendo!! Gracias a toda la familia de 5Elements.

5 elements Leipzig is amazing! The location is awesome, the hostel is beautiful and the staff is great (Simona, the housekeeping crew, everyone is nice, friendly and helpful)! The working hours are less than what I expected and the job is chill.. it is the best volunteer experience I had so far and I recommend to everyone!

I really liked my stay at Five elements hostel. I felt that I worked way less than I should have in comparason what I got. Free breakfast buffeé everyday, comfortable beds and clean rooms etc. The work was super easy and you rarely work alone! The kitchen is very big and useful, my groceries were safe too haha! The first night happened to be a family dinner, so I got a very nice welcome from nice people! Unfortunately there was not many volunteers at the end so nothing fun and spontanious really happened. I do believe though that when times are better this calm hostel will be quite fun!

The time, that I spent in 5 Elements will always have a special place in my heart. Working in the hostel was a lot of fun, I could get to know a bunch of amazing people from all around the world, while I had lots of free time to enjoy Leipzig and the surrounding areas. A huge thank you at this point to Simona, who was eager to make this time as amazing as possible! From capturing the moments at the common dinners to fulfilling everyone's needs and requests, we could always count on her. :) Thank you to all the amazing volunteers and staff members too! I hope that we see each other soon :)
