Going rates of pay for house cleaning in Berlin

I've been offered a minijob as a housecleaner and need to submit my rate. I have no idea what the going rates are as everything I've found is a couple of years old.

The job is just outside Berlin in Kleinmanchow.

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

We "inherited"a housecleaner from the previous (German) tenants and her rate is €10/hour. We checked with other friends and they pay the same.

Thank you, that's a great help! That's the rate I was thinking of asking.

Non-skilled labor is way overpaid here.

Nah, only Schwarzarbeit. Remember, a regular employee would end up with 4-5 € net on that rate, which would be below minimum wage in the US.

In my experience, €8 per hour is the going rate - I haven't heard of it any higher unless you bring all the supplies and have to travel far. Best of luck with it.

We pay 10€ down here, and I am fine with it. She irons and we trust her. We even pay 11€ most of the time.

The woman who keeps my place spick and span gets 15€ per hour. She is great, efficient, always on time and never complains. Apart from that she brings her own cleaning stuff and uses the phone to contact her relatives so perhaps that makes a difference. I would rather have someone I trust than someone based purely on price.

Bump. Looking for someone in Prenzlauer Berg, and I trust Toytowners more than Ebay Kleinanzeigen! Does anybody know someone who's free once a week or so?

You can clean the house yourself and save yourself a few bucks; after all it is an non-skilled, therefore you can easily do it...

BTW I pay 10 eur hour to the clean lady my room-mate arranged and I don't complain.
