Simple hostel but you get what you pay. Comfortable beds and cozy rooms. The kitchen is great and it's the place for you to meet other travelers. Easy to get from the train station and close to the old city. Budget without luxury. The staff is very helpful.

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights during a backpacking trip through Germany. It was a great experience! The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the staff is very friendly, and they provide free towels. The common area and terrace were a nice place for breakfast and it was easy to buy groceries to make your own meals. I would... More

Stayed here as part of a one month trip around Germany, and loved every minute of my stay in Bamberg. The city itself is one of the most attractive places I've ever been, and the hostel is perfectly situated for you to explore it. 5 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes through nice streets to the old...

Making reservations from the States can be a little nerve racking, but I had no problems whatsoever setting up my reservations here. We were in Germany/France for 16 days and Backpackers Bamberg had one of the largest rooms in which we stayed during our trip. Lilly who responds to reservations was very helpful in responding to my emails and showing... More

This hostel impressed me! It was cleaner and nicer than some of the hotels I stayed in on my trip! My husband and I stayed here one night. We had a room to ourselves. There are shared bathrooms, but they are separated by gender. Washers and dryers are available for 1.50 euro per use. This was great for us, but... More

This hostel is one of the best I've been to. The rooms are nice and although its by no means a party hostel (I mean you don't exactly come to Bamberg to party) there is a friendly atmosphere and the kitchen area is a nice place to meet people. I would highly recommend this place. One thing: the floors are... More

This hostel is 5 minutes away from the central railway station, but after 10 minutes walking you're already in the old city. The rooms are large, nicely decorated and have large windows. The ambient is calm, the personal is friendly, beds are confortable, clean sheets, clean bathroom, a very well equiped kitchen is available for guests, free internet access and... More

This hostel is close to the train station, which is handy. We informed the hostel we'd be there at 7, as did another traveler, but no one had showed up an hour later. We called them, and they showed up within a minute - apparently they live right next door and hadn't checked! The room was big and fairly clean,... More

The place is pretty ok for backpackers. Stayed there for two nights and it corresponds perfectly to what they offer in the website. It's really worth to visit the city by the way, specially for those who love good beer and nice views.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband. The staff was helpful and welcoming. Our room was really cute and large. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. Internet was provided in the rooms and the connection was decent. The only thing I didn't like was that all the rooms on the reception floor had windows facing the garage... More
