Best places to check for hostels or accommodation are Coswig, Meißen, Radebeul (Altkötzschenbroda) and if you have a car also in Dresden.
By car it is not more than 20-30 minutes from Dresden to Coswig. The public transportation takes about 30 minutes by S-Bahn, 45-50 minutes by Tram.
This is the link for the camping area in 15-20 minutes walking distance to the ballroom in Coswig. It is quite comfortable: campingplatz-coswig.de
>>> close to the beautiful Elbe River inside Radebeul-Meißen Elb-Wine-Valley
\\ we’ve had a good experience to searching hostels at hostelworld.com.
We also recommend to search with AirBnB or Couchsurfing. Alternatively you should try to check “Jugendherbergen, Ferienwohnungen, Pension or Hostels” in Meißen, Radebeul (especially Altkötzschenbroda) or Dresden (Dresden only if you have car or bike). We already had participants which rented a unit of Wohnungsgenossenschaft in Coswig (http://www.wgc-coswig.de/).

Coming by car to the event, we find it absolutely not difficult to have an accommodation or housing in Dresden. With public transportation you have no problems to join the workshop from Dresden, each ride will take about 40 Minutes … you need to take S1 from Dresden-Meißen or Tram number 4 from “Dresden – Weinböhla”
Names of Hostels in Dresden: Lollies Homestay, Mondpalast, Louise, Mescalero, Kangaroo Stop, LaLeLu, etc. …

For hosting requests please note, that we cannot promise to organize your hosting. We will do our best, but it has worked out great so far to start looking at the following platforms yourself:
- Plenty Hot – Dresden Coswig (our page) and the 2017 Dance Camp
- Jam Circle Group – facebook.com/groups/jamDD
- TanzTU-Dresden – facebook.com/groups/tanztudresden
- Lindy Hop Meißen – https://www.facebook.com/groups/1687159171567375
Though from our own experience it is not easy finding a host, if you have no private connection to the dance community. Once you got to know the dancers in person it is much easier. Still you should try, or search for couch surfing and airbnb.
We may also roll a poll request for the people that offer and need hosting or rides. This can be found on our facebook group.
