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.

It was AMAZING being a volunteer at Silke's hostel during 6 awesome weeks. She's kind, caring and an amazing leader towards the activities we need to execute around the place. The tasks were clear and well explained, we had plenty of time to enjoy the place, the region and see the beautiful landscapes around the baltic sea. It was my first experience and I strongly recommend to choose this place to have an unique experience. It was a pleasure to meet such a nice person as Silke! Hope to come back to say hi one day.

Peanuts Hostel fué una experiencia enriquecedora ya que aprendimos sobre jardinería, manejo de hostales y hasta un poco de carpinteria. Como voluntariado es una experiencia muy divertida, con tareas sencillas, la anfitriona tiene toda la disponibilidad, paciencia e interés en ayudarte. Es un lugar que te permite relajarte, aprender, socializar y adentrarte en su cultura. Silka siempre procura que te sientas cómoda, es una persona de quien se puede aprender mucho, siempre pone el ejemplo pero también te permite hacer las cosas a tu manera.

Silke es una persona muy amable, esta pendiente de lo que necesitas y se preocupa porque disfrutes tu estancia allí, el lugar es tranquilo, las tareas son sencillas y puedes conocer muchas cosas de la cultura alemana hablando con los huéspedes.

Silke is a very kind person, she is aware of what you need and cares that you enjoy your stay there, the place is quiet, the tasks are simple and you can learn many things about the German culture by talking with the guests.
