About Me

Smoking is forbidden in my flat.
If you smell wash yourself immediately or I might throw you out.
Put your smelly shoes in trashbags and close them airtight or you guessed it ;)
You can use cinnamon so that does not happen again.
I have cats :)
But I don't have WhatsApp
Don't bring your friends. I host you but if you start to bring strangers I will throw you out and your friends, even at night and I won't care about the weather.
Don't even bring anybody else into this house or I will throw you out.

!!! IMPORTANT !!!
I need a copy of the passports or IDs of everybody who wants to stay at my place before arrival or I can scan it here.
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.

Other rules:
-Waste separation (nosewipes go into the household trash, gotta setup a bag for organic trash too. Clean dirty plastics and metal and put it in the corner next to the window or collect it in a trashbag and put it in the yellow trashcan in the backyard. Organics go into the brown one and household trash goes in the black one.
-Vent the bathroom after showering!

Sometimes I invite more than one CSer to my flat because I have some extra sleeping surfaces ( 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.

ABOUT ME

https://www.couchsurfing.org/people/jangirke/

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.
DON'T SEND ME SMS ON MY LANDLINE (030).
No matter which way you choose, be persistent.

I drink alcohol.
If you don't get annoying for me you can drink.
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.
