This is the cleanest hostel I have stayed at in my previous trip to Europe! I stayed here from 07-09 OCT 2012
Location of this hostel is just perfect, it is just 02 minutes walking distance from Olgaeck U-bahn station (which is only a few stops away from Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof) and has a good supermarket nearby. This central location makes it convenient to explore Stuttgart.
Staff is helpful and very friendly, there was a small mistake in our booking - we were allotted a 06 bedded room instead of a 04 bedded one but we were compensated for the same by one complimentary breakfast which made up for it.
The rooms, toilets and showers are very clean, almost spotless. Beds are very comfortable. Lockers are inside the room, but they have a small width and some can be difficult to lock. You cannot place your entire stroller in it but can manage all your valuables.
Breakfast @8EUR is a good deal as they have a good variety and it can fill you up till mid afternoon. They have 06 types of cereals, 3-4 types of breads and a decent variety of cheeses, jams, fruits, hot /cold beverages, scrambled eggs and other accompaniments. We enjoyed it to the core.
They have a bar as well where you can enjoy a welcome drink @ 1EUR.
Kitchen is very clean and well equipped.
The hostel staff pays special attention to maintenance of their infrastructure, as you will see the entire building is in a good condition and is very well groomed. This is a very beautiful old property which was a school earlier, as told to me my the staff. The orange and pastel colour scheme is warm and invigorating, the beautiful framed photographs on the walls add to its charm.
Only drawback is lack of an elevator, which can causes inconvenience especially to elderly guests to carry their luggage all the way upstairs.
I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Stuttgart! This property is highly recommended!
