Aus der Reihe: Die Mitarbeiter // Meet the hostel staff !

Elli ++ seit fast 3 Jahren dabei ++ „reizende Rezi“

Verrücktestes Erlebnis während meiner Zeit im Lollis?

>> Jede Weihnachtsfeier (!) – Man erfährt viele interessante Dinge über die Menschen mit denen man tagtäglich arbeitet. Jedes Mal herrscht eine ausgelassene, fröhliche Stimmung und am Ende landet man immer in der Neustadt. Für mehr Details spricht man mich am besten direkt an. <<

Das schönste Erlebnis im Lollis?

>> Seit dem Jahr 2014 gebe ich den Gästen im Sommer jeden Dienstag einen Einführungskurs in Deutsch. Einmal dankte mir eine Dame aus Russland mit einem hübschen Matruschka-Anhänger. Es ist toll, wenn man merkt, dass die Gäste Spaß hatten und es einem danken.<<

Das liebe ich am meisten am Lollis?

>> Natürlich die Kollegen, das nette Arbeitsklima und die Gäste. Aber vor allem die kreative Atmosphäre, die von unserem Hostel ausgeht. Durch das Hostel habe ich „USE-IT“ (http://www.use-it.travel/home) kennengelernt. Gemeinsam mit Kollegen und diversen anderen Dresdnern arbeiten wir jedes Jahr daran einen werbungs-freien, aktuellen und vor allem frei erhältlichen Stadtplan zu veröffentlichen. Die Karte beinhaltet viele lokale Insider-Tipps, nur so lernt man das wahre Dresden kennen! <<

Elli ++ has been with us for almost 3 years ++ „lovely receptionist“

Craziest experience during my time working for Lollis Homestay?

>> Every „Office Christmas Party“ with the colleagues is crazy! You get to know the people, who work with you in such a different way. Everytime the atmosphere is so joyful and we always end up somewhere in the “Neustadt“. Christmas brings out the best in us. :) For more details you better speak to me directly.<<

Most beautiful memory form my time at Lollis?

>> In the summer I teach German to our guests every Tuesday. One time after one of these 1-hour-beginner-courses a russian lady thanked me and gave me a „Matruschka-hanger“. It’s great to know that guests enjoy the lessons and this was a very kind way to thank me. <<

What I love about Lollis Homestay?

>> Of course the colleagues, the work atmosphere and the guests. But most of all, Lollis is a place of creativity. Through the hostel I got to know „USE-IT“ (http://www.use-it.travel/home). Together with some of my colleagues and other locals we publish a commercial free, up to date and cost-free city map every year. It’s important to us to pormote local insider-tips, only with these you get to know the real Dresden. <<

Play 4 Stay @ Lollis Homestay

Hey folks,

Tonight we were honored to meet and greet an upcoming musician!

She, who doesn’t want to be named :), has been playing the harp for 3 years now and gave us a little show.

Especially during winter when it’s freezing cold outside, there is nothing better to do then snuggling up in a blanket on our couch listing to the harmonic tunes of her harp!

What do you think? Checkout Facebook for the video!

Catch ya soon!

Aus der Reihe: Die Mitarbeiter // Meet the hostel staff !

Ben ++ seit 8 1/4 Jahren dabei ++ „fleißiger Putzi“

Verrücktestes Erlebnis während meiner Zeit im Lollis?

>> Als Putzi hat man zwar nicht so einen intensiven Gästekontakt wie zum Beispiel unsere Rezeptionisten, aber wir sehen Dinge, welche sich unsere Kollegen in ihren kühnsten Träumen nicht vorstellen können. Vor etwa 2 Jahren betrat ich während eines Putzgangs durchs Haus eines unserer 4er-Zimmer. Sofort merkte ich: „hier stimmt etwas nicht“. Ein komischer Geruch lag in der Luft. Die Quelle war erst nach einigen Minuten gefunden. Ich muss zugeben, die Gäste hatten ihr Malheur kreativ versteckt. Nach einem feucht fröhlichen Abend ging es den Herren wohl ein wenig zu gut (bzw. zu schlecht). Es hat zwei Tage gedauert bis ich das Zimmer wieder hergerichtet hatte und es geruchsfrei war. <<

Das schönste Erlebnis im Lollis?

>> Nach einem ganz normalen Arbeitstag im Sommer, genoss ich mittags ein Bier draußen auf der Bank vor dem Hostel. Dabei lernte ich eine Dame mittleren Alters kennen, wir unterhielten uns bis Abends um 10 über Gott und die Welt – so etwas passiert vielleicht selten, aber man erlebt es nirgendwo anders! <<

Das liebe ich am meisten am Lollis?

<< Die Kollegen, das freundschaftliche Arbeitsklima, sowie die faire Geschäftsleitung !!! <<

hardworking Ben

Ben ++ has been with us for 8 1/4 years ++ “hadworking cleaner”

Craziest experience during my time working for Lollis Homestay?

>> As a cleaner you don’t have as much customer contact as for example a receptionist. However you see things, which the other colleagues can’t even imagine in their wildest dreams. About 2 years ago … during my daily cleaning routine … I entered a 4 bed room. I immediately realized: “there’s something wrong in here“. There was a very strange smell in the air. After a while I found the source. I have to admit, these guests had developed a very creative method to hide their slip-up. Apparently these gentleman had had a adventerous night out on the town! Too bad for me, it took me 2 days to clean the room and get the smell out. <<

Most beautiful memory from my time at Lollis Homestay?

>>After a rather busy work day one summer, I enjoyed a beer outside the hostel. While doing so I met a middle-aged woman. The two of us talked until 10 pm in the evening about anything that came to mind – something like this doesn’t happen often, but you don’t experience it anywhere else! <<

What I love about Lollis Homestay?

>> The colleagues , the friendly working atmosphere and a very fair board of management. <<

Lollis Homestay wishes you a Happy New Year !!!

2014 has been another exciting year for Lollis Homestay. We made lots of new friends, had exquisite hostel dinners and (on some nights) partied with our guests all night long. :)

But before the recap for this year starts, we want to thank all of our wonderful guests, who have enriched us with their presence for the past year. Our team works hard to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for you guys. However without you, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today.

So this was 2014 for us…

January
Because of a busy summer 2013 we had to make a few rennovations. We were also proud to be able to present a new room called Orientalsaal (“Orientroom“).

February
A great talent from Russia visited Lollis Homestay. Guests and employees got an oil painting of themselves for free!! We thank Gayane D. for making us and our guests such lovely presents.

March
Every Wednesday and Sunday evening “Chef Björn“ cooks a free veggie dinner for our guests. From “Chilli sin carne“ to “traditional German cuisine newly interpreted“ – this is Haute Cuisine! But for all that (!) Björn sometimes needed a little helper called Pranav. On top of that Pranav always took care of guests when it came to going out and enjoying Dresdens nightlife. We wish Pranav the best of luck with his studies over in gold old Berlin. ;)

April
Lollis Homestay celebrated its 13-year-anniversary. Before the Hostel moved into the centre of the Neustadt Area 10 years ago, it was located in the Hechtviertel (“Hecht Area“). Henne and Lolli have been running the hostel together for 10 years now!!!

May
Shortly before the summer season started our lovely receptionist, Elli, decided to become a teacher for our hostel guests. In summer we offered our guests to learn German with Elli every Tuesday @7.30 pm for one hour. Elli taught you how to meet, greet and order everything from ice cream to „Schweinshaxe“ in German. Thank you Elli!

June
Like every year we had a stage set up for some bands and we were happy to celebrate the “Colourful Republic of the Neustadt“ (in German: Bunte Republik Neustadt). The Bunte Republik Neustadt (literally “Colourful Republic of Neustadt”) was a micronation in parts of the city’s district Dresden-Neustadt from 1990 to 1993. Nowadays every year in June a 3-day cultural festival is celebrated in the Neustadt under the same name. Thanks to all of the helpers, which made this years festival possible – it was a blast!
Here’s next years dates: June 19th, 2015 – June 21st, 2015. Make sure to reserve a room or bed as early as possible. It’s definitely worth it to stay for the whole three days.

July
We love when you guys write us. In July we received a lovely postcard from Taiwan. This is what we work for (!), so please if you were satisified with our service (or not), write us an review or simply send us a postcard. We’re always interested in your opinions.

August
Like many, Lollis Homestay could not be spared from the “Ice Bucket Challenge”. Cameraman Marc and Johannes captured the event. Check out the video on our facebook page and to all the ladys out there – the guy is some serious eye candy. ;) At this point we’re raising awareness for the the disease ALS (amoytrophic lateral sclerosis) and encourage donations to research.

September
Are you enjoying the music you’re hearing in the common room and reception area? Every receptionist has her or his own favorite genre and artists, which they love to hear while working. So besides taking care of check-ins, check outs, preparing breakfast, entertaining guests or cleaning after them, the receptionists are also Dj-ing and showing you the hottest tracks of the season (or century). ;)

October
By the way … The city tax introduced to Dresden in February, 2015 is not mandatory anymore. Every guest, who is over 18 years old now safes EUR 1,30 per night again. Yay!

November
Refugees are welcome & Lollis Homestay supports this.
PEGIDA demonstrations have been taking place in our Old Town (Altstadt) to protest against the “Islamization” of Europe since October, 2014. Their statements towards Islam are strongly directed at extremist groups.

December
There’s really nothing much left to say. In the last month of the year many came to visit Dresdens lovely christmas market and get a glimpse of Dresdens special christmas spirit . The fireworks on the night of December 31st illuminated the whole city. Right in the middle lies a small hostel, its employees anxiously await you and are happy about every visitor from around the world!

We hope you had a great start into the New Year!
Greetings from Dresden – Lea, Lollis Homestay
