My husband and I stayed at the Hababusch Hostel from June 26 - 29, 2010. We had an absolutely amazing time and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Weimar. It is located right in the city center, walking distance to all of Weimar's cultural sites. Additionally, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful free student concert at the Liszt Academy of Music, also within walking distance.

The decor of the hostel itself is quite eclectic, but inviting. There is a large table in the main living room, and we spent much time sitting there eating and making new friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beware - not a hotel! Hababusch is an alternative backpackers hostel in a quirky 200-year-old historic building. Located in the quaint old city center, 1,5km from the station and just out-of-the-ordinary. Run as a non-profit with the help of the students living in the building. Escape the hype! Go indulge in the beauty of this slow-paced, yet inspiring city of culture. Enjoy its landscape parks, cafes, libraries, horse carriages, ancient palaces and subcultural hideaways. ... more   less
