Every crisis is also an opportunity for growth: thanks to financial support from the state, we are currently able to invest in a change and are giving Lollis Homestay a new face!
We cannot deny that these months of inactivity for the hostel and its staff have been long and hard. At the moment, and probably until mid-June 2021, we are only allowed to receive guests travelling with business purposes.
Luckily, there are many vocational schools in Dresden and the hostel is populated every other week with young and friendly trainees who brighten things up a bit. Moreover, thanks to the continuous presence of the amazing volunteers who have lived in the hostel during these months, such as Emma, Tomas, Juan Martin and Federico, the hostel has never been abandoned and has always had his guardian angels.
But every crisis is also an opportunity for growth: thanks to financial support from the state, we are currently able to invest in a change and are giving Lollis Homestay a new face!
As the hostel is often empty and we cannot receive many guests, we have started some renovation works to change the floors and repaint the walls of the rooms.
Many rooms still had a touch of the 80s with carpets on the floor and they definitely needed a refresh! Therefore, with the help of the professional Heiko, the dream team consisting of our manager Martin and the two Andreas are applying laminate flooring and giving the walls new colours.
If you have stayed at Lollis Homestay or if you just take a look at the photos on our website, you will realise how much importance we place on the style of our rooms: each one is unique and has a different theme, so it is vital to us that - even with these functional changes - the rooms never lose their personality! We want our guests to feel at home, but also to immerse themselves in a creative, imaginative and artistic atmosphere, in line with the spirit of the Neustadt district.
This is our challenge for the month of May: to pimp the hostel while waiting for your return to visit, experience and admire it in all its new colours! We will keep you updated on the reopening of our doors and we wait for you with open arms...
See you soon in Dresden!
