Nice clean hostel. Bed linen provided but you have to make the beds yourself. Towels come with a charge. Had dinner for 2 Adults and 2 children for €25, not bad value. Big negative is WiFi - it's not free - not available in rooms - charged at €1.50 per hour in the common areas. Have stayed in 4 other... More

Very nice and clean rooms, better than most low budget hotels. Everything needed was available. The only negative point was that the price for Wifi was too high. Breakfast was good enough, the quality of the products weren't great but we had everything we needed.

It was very clean. Large rooms and probably better than most budget hotels. Bed was comfortable. Occasionally lots of kids running around but that's OK during the day. Not the most convenient if you don't have a car but those who are active found it pretty nice to jog to the cathedral in the morning.

Stayed here on a school trip. Found it to be very clean and modern, and my room was plenty big enough for the four of us sharing it. We had a coach that took us from the hostel to the city centre and back whilst we were there so getting around was no problem, but it did feel a little... More

Two weeks ago I was with my host classes of the structure. Spaces large and newly renovated. almost excellent cleansing, shame about the rudeness from the staff entrance which claimed to make us dinner at times improbable due to the overcrowding of the hostel. In their time they forgot one of our reservation and when we asked about this they... More

I organised a Year 8 trip (12-13 year olds) to those hostel and can honestly say that it is a fantastic place to stay. The kids were all provided with clean and comfortable dorms, which is a real must for organising this sort of trip. All meals had a really good selection of foods, which is clearly replenished frequently. The... More

Recently, I took a school group to this hostel. Not only is it conveniently located just away from the very centre of the city, but it's clean, modern and comfortable. The kitchen catered to the dietary requirements of the group and the pupils really enjoyed their time there. The terrace is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a meal... More

Pleasant location close to the shore of the Rhine. Online reservation was totally free with payment due on arrival (you must get there by 18:00). Note that the Germans don't use credit cards much, so you will have to pay in cash. If you are paying for meals, make sure you are issued with the plastic tokens at check-in. Breakfast... More

I expected this to be really basic as it was billed as a youth hostel but was pleasantly surprised. The room was average size but the bed really comfortable. Furniture was modern and bright. The bathroom and shower were compact but adequate for what was needed. The only down side was a lack of variety of food in the restaurant.... More
