LA SIESTA Team

The Team

The enthusiasm for hammocks unites our almost 40 employees at the Youth Hostel and Miami locations. Together we want to provide our customers with an incomparable hammock experience and enrich their lives with it. Openness and diversity are very important to us. Our LA SIESTA team is therefore made up of a colourful mix of over ten nations and all age groups.

Sales & Service

With tact: Competent, reliable and with experience, we support national and international customers in seven languages with all questions concerning hammocks. Customer satisfaction is our top priority for our sales team.
