our story

Our hostel is part of ‘Ost-Apotheke’ – a huge Art Nouveau building that is run by, and home, to over 30 young people between 19 and 34. Among us are musicians, DJs, philosophers, painters, carpenters, nightlife enthusiasts and entrepreneurs.

We began renovating our heritage listed house together in 2013.

Apart from the hostel there are flat-shares with over 30 people living in the house. We are quite fond of our cozy backyard with a cute treehouse, where we like to hang out in the summer.

Mira, who planned and mainly runs the hostel, studied philosophy before working in future research for 3 years. In 2012 she quit her job, spent some time in an experimental London house project and finally visited friends in Leipzig with whom she built the hostel.
