The Experience

The work is very varied. In a small Hostel. Mainly it would be to help with the cleaning, but also with the small garden or going to the supermarket. If you have other knowledge they are also welcome. I wait for you!

I went to the hostel in times of pandemic, there was not much to do, the job was basically cleaning the hostel and the garden. Helena is friendly and loves to share the stories about Pirna. The architecture of the houses in this part of Germany is amazing, and the hostel is one of the most beautiful and cozy I have ever seen. In the region there are many parks and great places to visit.

Very comfortable with the experience, I recommend getting to know Pirna and the whole team at Casa Hostel Pirna. I hope to return one day 😊😊😊.

My stay was great! The hostel is in a cute town and it is also very convenient to go both to Dresden and into the nature. Helena is a very nice host, always willing to show you how to do your tasks and help you if needed. She cares about you to feel like home. The tasks are easy and the work is pretty chill. What was more important to me, Helena is such a wonderful person, one of the most concerned about environment and eco-friendly persons that I have ever met, which is really appreciated. She also taught me a lot of things about living in Germany and it was fun to hang out with her. Danke :)

This was my first experience as a worldpacker. And honestly I was very fortunate. From the first day I felt very welcome. Helena IS A BEAUTIFUL SOUL, she advises you to go to the best places of pirna and surroundings and IF SHE IS FREE she goes with you, to walk, to the bar, even hiking, very attentive. the work is simple with will, rhythm and attention to what she tells you you finish the work before time, then it means more time for you;).... So thank you very much helena And more than anything for the chance! I'll be back!
