The Experience

The job is way simple: it is mainly keeping the guests satisfied by socializing and generally being around and offering help and knowledge to our Guests. It mainly means doing our Hostel Events, like doing the BBQ on Monday, and cooking the Vegetarian Free Dinner on Sunday and Wednesday. Also, our Volunteers help us with the breakfast. In the low season during wintertime, we need some simple help with the nightshifts.

I had the most amazing time at the hostel, even ended up extending my stay :) work is simple and fair,i really liked that we could organize different activities for guests and change it up each week. even when I was the only volunteer for a few days the work was not overwhelming at all. All the receptionists are just the most amazing people. Dresden is also a beautiful city with lots to discover !

If you're solo traveling or working in a hostel for the first time this is truly the place to welcome you into that experience and help you get comfortable. I could not recommend the hostel more if I tried, the staff are all amazing (shoutout to Juli, Nova and Laurent for the conversations!), the work is social and easy and the hostel itself is beautifully designed. Plus I got to meet some of the best people whilst volunteering at the hostel. Really wished I had the time to volunteer for longer but I know I'll visit the hostel and it's staff again soon!

It was without a doubt my best volunteering experience so far. Dresden is a city with many charms and the hostel has an alternative and fun vibe. The tasks are simple and fun, I felt very happy to collaborate. Martin and Juliane are special people and the entire the hostel team made me feel welcome and at home, it was very difficult to say goodbye (I hope it's a see you later) I couldn't have chosen a better place to spend Christmas and New Year. Thank you very much for everything, I highly recommend the hostel.

All of the staff are really lovely and they make you feel very at home. Thank you to all the incredible staff, I am so grateful for you all! The tasks are very simple and straight forward, so there is lots of time to explore Dresden and its surrounds. I feel very lucky to have volunteered at the hostel and I have made life-long friends and memories! Thank you all so much!!!

Dom is just a very active, smart and wonderful soul! Although she is still very young, she was very responsible, never late, communication was amazing and working together with her was easy and fun! We were impressed, she is a good team player! She is also good in interaction with guests and other strangers and we were really happy to have her here at our little hostel!

There aren't enough words of gratitude to describe my experience. the hostel is the best hostel I've ever been to as a volunteer! From the first moment I felt like I was at home. The staff are incredible, kind and helpful. Also other volunteers. I met wonderful people who I will forever carry in my heart. Working at the hostel is easy, fun, and you have the freedom to choose your hours and enjoy your free time. I definitely recommend it and hope to return one day! Thanks for everything guys 🫶🏻

Rafaela is full of energy and has been an incredible reliable colleque to us! We would always recommend to hire her, she did her job always very well and really tried to make the best out of every event! No matter if it was cooking or going on christmas market tours with our guests, everybody was very happy! We loved her positive energies!
