It is the revival of the twenties! swing is back and it is hot!

it is not only the dance that is hot again, it is also the clothing style from the 20ties that is at the moment totally in!

At the hostel we first got in touch with swing dance as the organisation of Berlin Swing Patrol contacted us in order to work together. We provided beds with a special discount for the swing dancers attending the swing patrol festival. It was such fun, seeing them practicing the dance in our garden. Such joy!
