The Experience

Our hostel is a traditional lodge built in 1909 with a great atmosphere and stunning highland surroundings, located in the woods but very close to the bus, shop, restaurant, and trails.We are looking for help with all tasks around hostel like reception, cleaning, socializing with guests, cooking meals, feeding our animals (goat and 2 cats). We will ask you to work 2 full days (25h) so that you have 5 days off during a week (perfect for hiking).

super Good energy ! Marzena many pros few cons almost nothing ! as every human hehe !
flexible understanding, specially for independent and autonomous travellers that they know what to do by conscience and Logic !



My time on Goodbye Lenin was awesome! That place is like a home, and I've made really good friends there. Marzena, the host, is amazing, she made us feel very comfortable and made sure we had everything we needed. The work was easy too, and we also had lots of times to relax or to go on hikes. I absolutely loved this place and I hope to get back there again in the future :)

The tasks are straightforward and you have tons of free time to hike! Marzena was a great host :)



My experience during my stay in Goodbye Lenin Hostel could not have been better! The place is nice and really beautiful, a lot of hikings to explore and have fun. Moreover, Marzena is an amazing host and takes care of us volunteers as a friend.

I would definitely recommend this experience to everybody. But be careful, once you are there you would not want to come back! Thank you Marzena for everything!
