First off the region is awesome and beautiful stunningly so. I spent two day walking the trails laid all throughout town into the vineyards and woods. Now the hostel is in a great location you can see over Bacharach and you get to stay in a castle!!! If you have read the history the castle was rebuilt on the early... More

EXCELLENT place to stay -- better than any higher-priced hotel in Bacharach! If you've never considered a hostel before, make this your first one. This is a pro organization all around -- it's been a castle since the 1100s, and a hostel since the 1920s. I got a single private room with a bunk bed and a sink, and the... More

It was cool the fact I was staying in a castle. I stayed in a private room in the bottom of the castle with my friend where there was no wifi which I had to pay for! It took me forever to get my wifi, I asked for it then she told me to wait and carried on doing nothing... More

The castle has been converted to a family hostel and is very comfortable and clean. They offer a buffet for breakfast and dinner, as well as ordering a la carte. They have wi-fi, but it's not secure, so beware. Typical amenites of a hostel include a game room, lounge area, etc., etc. Spending a night in an ancient castle can... More

We recently traveled with my husband's family around Europe for 2 weeks--everyone agrees, this was the highlight of our trip! Book well in advance, as rooms run out quickly! For around 25 EUR per person, you can sleep in a Rhine-river castle (which has been turned into a family hostel). The price includes dinner and breakfast which is pretty bland,... More

The staff at this castle/hotel are incredibly rude. I stood at the reception desk for 10 minutes directly in front of the only staff member sitting behind the desk. She was playing on her phone, and was intentionally ignoring me. I said excuse me and hello (in German and English) and was completely ignored. It wasn't until a young girl... More

Our Girl Scout Troop just got back from a 16 European tour and we loved our stay in Burg Stahleck. We had awesome group rooms and adult rooms. They were clean, spacious and comfy - especially after the walk up the hill. I recommend the easier path with stairs, if you choose to walk up, but the more challenging path... More

This is the most unique experience in terms of our accommodations in Germany. Some people might think it's a hostel where you see kids running everywhere. That's not the case during our visit (a long weekend in May). The hostel is clean, quiet. The room is also clean; linens are clean and quite new. We stayed in the two private... More

For a night, this wasn't bad. The bathrooms were down the hall, and the room was very small. The location was outstanding, just be careful how much stuff you have to lug up 350 steps....it's a workout! It was quiet at night, but crazy with kids during the day.
