You will meet a lot of nice people from different nationalities, staff and guests. Everyone is very kind and respectful. Sometimes the tasks were harder than expected, but it depends on the amount of things to do each day and the amount of people working on each task. The only thing we didn't like was not knowing about the location of the hostel beforehand, just so you know, it's located very close to the station but it's the red district. Nothing bad ever happened to us, even very late at night but the zone looks a little bit scary.
Other than that, thanks for everything.

It was completely incredible, an experience I will never forget, I met people I will take with me for a lifetime. About the hostel, the tasks are easy and fair, we stayed in housekeeping and dinner. I would definitely go back. Fabi thank you for everything, you are the best!

It was wonderful! The energy of the hostel is wonderful, but I believe this is a reflection of the people who work there! Both the managers and staff are wonderful. Schedules can be flexible, tasks are not complicated and you always have time to enjoy the city! I definitely loved it so much that I didn't want to leave, and I'm already planning on going back soon! Thank you Five elements and Fabi of course!

Everyone was incredibly nice throughout my stay. The tasks weren't as described and the location the hostel was located in was just OK. However, it was very easy work and everyone was very welcoming and I enjoyed my stay with the team. Definitely do research on Frankfurt and get excited to travel to other cities on your downtime, they provide lots of flexibility to allow for it.

Great experience! Good place to meet people who love to travel! The first impression of the area it's not the best, but you get used to it. I would recommend to work here to anyone, the people are great and you get a lot of good things by working here :)
