We felt like we were in a fairtale! It really is a castle! The views from every corner are beautiful and did I mention its a castle! The dorms were clean and cute. As were the bathrooms. Dinner was good - just like a home cooked meal. The facilities were excellent. It wasn't noisy Staff were very helpful. The only... More

This village is amazing! And the castle-turned-hostel is amazing also. It's in a gorgeous setting on top of a hill overlooking the Rhine River (beautiful views from many spots). Our 8 person room was very large and cute w/pine bunkbeds and pretty views from the windows. We were the only two people staying in the room that night. The hostel... More

The castle is a tourist destination in its own right, overlooking the World Heritage listed Middle Rhine Valley, and there will be very few times you will be able to stay in such a fairytale place on a backpackers budget. Yes it is a bit of a hike to get to it, especially if like us you have to drag... More

This hostel is located in a castle above the Rhine. It is a bit of a hike up a hill, but well worth it for the panoramic views. The building is old, but the rooms are recently renovated and clean. We had a twin room with private bath. We had a view of the Rhine from our window. The dinner... More

It's a castle on a hill, how much more romantic? The first hurdle - Hike up said hill, about 10-15 minutes, longer if weighed down with baggage. After that, it's an impressive historical structure with great views all around of the Rhine Valley and the grapevines on the surrounding hills. Our double room happened to be in the dungeon, two...
