“Fantastic Value and Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2010

I stayed here in February 2010. This hostel is as much a regular B&B / pension as it is a hostel. Some rooms are dorms and some are hotel style en-suite double & single rooms with bathrooms. I was travelling alone and had booked a dorm. When I arrived they gave me a single en-suite at no extra cost because they had overbooked the dorms... can't beat that for customer service! The staff are friendly and efficient. The whole place is very clean and it's less than 5 minutes walk from the main train station and the Zugspitze bahn train station which is great if you're using the Zugspitze railway for skiing. There's a free ski storage shed outside and your room key operates the lock. Breakfast costs 5€ extra but it's very good quality and worth it. There are only a few small negative things about this hostel... there's no guest's kitchen so the self caterer's will be disappointed, it's very quiet and not a hostel for socialising and the wi-fi has to be paid for at a very expensive rate (one of my pet hates). There is however (one) computer in reception that guests can use.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

This isn't a 4-star hotel in any sense of the word.. We reserved a triple room and arrived during off-hours (key left at the door for us) and found a dark lobby and rather dark hallways. We found a room with sleeping accomodations for only two people. We searched and searched until we found someone - it appears there is a residence at the back - who explained the girl who handles online reservations doesn't speak english. So, we were given an extra single room which was fine except we weren't all together. The bathrooms were very small. The breakfast was adequate with breads, fruits, soft boiled eggs, cheeses and meats, but we never saw any employees - the food always just appeared in the morning. We only saw one other traveler during our entire time and he played loud music most of the time. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but it was clean. We did walk to some restaurants from the inn, but it was a long walk. We drove most places.
