The Experience

We are a small family run hostel with 23 beds near the Baltic Sea, just north of Kiel. We do not live at the hostel ourselves so it is nice to have someone around who is there to let us know if everything is ok. You are more or less a "normal" guest who helps us a little with cleaning, gardening or welcoming other guests. Work times are flexible and there is plenty of time to explore the area by bike. The nearest beach is 2.5km away.

Silke was very welcoming and helpful for my entire stay, and would often help alongside myself and other volunteers so you're never under pressure. There's a lot to learn regarding guest hospitality, and assisting people in the hostel, but it's pretty simple in the end, and easy to pick up. Working here allowed time to switch off and enjoy the peace of being right near the sea and countryside. The private room I stayed in was very comfortable, and especially so during the hotter days, since it was below the hostel, and very cool. Would very much recommend.

This was our first experience with Worldpackers and it was amazing. Silke was incredibly generous, kind and calm, and made everybody feel welcome at the hostel, guests as well as volunteers. She took the time to get to know us, and we felt like our work made a difference. The workload wasn't very big and could often be worked around our schedule if we had made plans to go somewhere. We definitely recommend it, and would return if we got the chance again:) Nanna and Astrid

I love the experience in this Hostel. It is a quiet place near the sea. The tasks were not complicated and when you finish, you have enough time to explore the area by bike. Silke is a really nice person! You can contact her anytime you need. I recommend everyone to come here

These two weeks have been amazing. The hostel is such a peaceful place and the room is very nice. The tasks are very simple: cleaning, gardening things and do the check-in when the guests arrive. Silke helps you every time you need. In addition, we had lot of time to explore the area by bike, the beach and supermarkets are not far. You can also enjoy the nature, play games with guests... We hope come back some day ^^
