About Me

I have cats :)

I need a copy of the passports or IDs of everybody who wants to stay at my place before arrival.
Send it to my email.

MANDATORY!(I don't want to have the hassle of letting you in or out.):
30Euro deposit for keys.
You get the money back when you return the keys.

Sometimes I invite more than one CSer to my flat because I have one extra sleeping surface ( bed, couch and matrasses )

The last thing is that everybody has to sit down to pee because otherwise the wall gets soaked in pee and I don't want that.


My flat is unrenovated and messy but not dirty.

If I don't open the door try to call me and
don't give up so easy if you can't reach me or are at my door.
I might just be asleep or not hearing the door bell.
No matter which way you choose, be persistent.

I drink alcohol.
If you don't get annoying for me you can drink.
Smoking is forbidden in my flat.
I am vegan but I drink milk and eat cheese.

Here is my address if I confirmed your stay.
The NUMBER below is NOT a MOBILE phone.
do NOT SEND a SMS to that NUMBER.

I live near the station Hermannstraße.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer a double bed and mattresses in a separate room that I have to pass through often as well as a shower, a washing machine and internet.
Same goes for the computer with internet access if you don't have a laptop to use wired.
Microwave, stove plates, oven, refrigerator, freezer and some other stuff.


A lot of hosting.


If you want to bring a present, remember that I am vegan and don't eat eggs or any kind of meat but I eat dairy(milk) products.
