I am very grateful to Uli because he has been very patient and friendly. Due to the pandemic, I have not been able to travel because the borders are closed, but they have been very kind and gave me the opportunity to travel as soon as I can. I am very excited to be able to go and help. I know it will be a very pleasant time as Uli and Daniel have been very kind helping me in this process. Thank you very much!!

You would be doing some hours of reception, and helping the other staff members with the housekeeping chores!

The Staff team is fantastic, and the location was so good for people that like nature and want to improve their German! I had a fantastic time in Germany and it was an unforgettable first experience worldpacking!

I would like to highlight the great help that Uli gave me throughout my whole experience, and allowing me to stay longer due to my flights being cancelled for the current global situation.

Definitely recommend! Friendly atmosphere! Good team! Everything is organized in the best way!
It’s a good opportunity to make your world bigger and to improve your language skills. Besides it’s a town of fairy tales. You can find yourself in a castle where Cinderella forgot her shoe. The place is very romantic.

This was my first experience with worldpackers and I think it couldn't be better. The hostel is lovely and the owner is the best, he is always there for help and teach you. The assignments and the work are not difficult. Sometimes it could be hard because there is a lot to do, but you are not alone. The team and the town are small so be ready to meet everyone!
I really aprecciate the time which I spent there and I hope to be back soon, even like a friend :)
Thank you so much HostelMarburg team!
