This little hostel is thoughtfully and carefully furnished but unfortunately to no great effect. We were placed in the Inca room which I would not recommend even if you don't mind bunk beds. It was very, very small (space enough for the bunk and not much else), the light in the room is rather dim, there are only two showers (both of which malfunction in various ways) and one toilet for all females in the hostel, kitchen is awkwardly located right next to reception and pin-entry locks on the adjacent dorm rooms are deafeningly loud, enough to disturb your sleep. We also had mixed service from reception. It varied from friendly and informative to somewhat aggressive/awkward (one staff member demanded to be greeted by three guests entering the hostel, which is strange as there's no direct view into reception as you enter the hostel and go upstairs). However the hostel is fantastically located and this became a huge plus for us. Lastly, laundry service is unreliable so don't count on it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Old Kings design hostel is located within Fuessen's medieval city walls and is only a 7 minute walk from the train station. Occupying a historic townhouse, Old Kings is where hip meets history: Relax in our King's Loft or Gryffindore dorms or enjoy the canopy bed in our "King of Dreams" double room. Meet other travellers over a drink at the communal table in our lounge or borrow a book from our library. And don't forget to grab one of our bikes to explore the crystal clear lakes, mountains and castle ruins that surround us. There is much more to Fuessen than just Neuschwanstein - the surrounding nature is a hiker's and biker's paradise with beautiful Bavarian villages and amazing mountain climbs almost starting at our door steps. And the baroque "Wieskirche", a Unesco World heritage site, is just around the corner. ... more less
