I stayed with my family at JDG Nuremberg for two nights. It was my first ever stay in a youth hostel and my expectations for this accommodation was down around my boot laces and digging. How wrong I was! It was superb! The hostel is perfectly located right next to the Kaiser Burg and only a short walk downhill into... More

I often sleep in hostels, especially when I travel around Europe and the World for business. This must really be one of the best, if not the best, hostel I ever slept in. First of all, the location: it's inside the Nurnberg castle! It's right in the city center, a short walk from everything (the return walk can be steep,... More

Was in Nürnberg for the fair. As we all know, the toughest time to find accommodation and most profitable for hoteliers :) however I was lucky to book a room here. Right in the heart of Nürnberg. I stayed in the room for four :) comfortable with an amazing view! Walking distance from the main station. So every morning I... More

We stayed here for 1 night while the Christmas markets were on in Nuremberg. Our family of 5 had 2 adjacent, but not connecting, rooms which were both clean, comfortable and well maintained. Staff at check in and check out were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of the usual German options - wonderful rolls, meat, cheese, boiled... More

We stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas. The hostel was itself was great. The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. It was also in a great location, and we had an amazing view from the top floor. Our only complaint is the service from the staff. Most of the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. It would have been... More

I was on business and had the unique opportunity to stay in this fabulous hostel. The folks that hosted the hostel were fantastic and most helpful with whatever I needed. The breakfast was typical Bavarian style. To die for. We plan on going back and spending time in the great old city of Nüernberg. I highly recommend trying their hospitality... More

Excellent hostel to stay in. New and well kept. I stayed in a room for four and found it to be clean and relatively spacious. Lots of families were staying here so there was noise from children, but things quieted down early. Breakfast was included - cereal, yogurt, cold cuts, bread - enough to get you going in the morning.... More

We stayed here with our family with three young children in a family room. The building is incredible, and inside they have stuff to keep the look of a castle (fireplaces, archways, columns) that was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The family room is six bunk beds, just fyi. The rooms are clean but the walls are a... More

We stayed in the tower room, really a wonderfull view in the morning. We loved the option of breakfast and dinner in the hostel, also a great way to meet people. There were a lot of families when we were there and we understand why, a great affordable place to stay. A hostel where history and modern decoration is combined,... More

Very interesting hostel and newly renovated from inside, the main hall serve as a breakfast room which is nicely decorated. Room was clean but a bit dusty floor, bathroom can't be cleaner and the mattress was on the hard side. Nice breakfast, the normal standard hostels one, also friendly and cooperative staff. For walking from the train station, I don't... More
