“Cozy backpacker place, easy to meet cool people.”
Reviewed July 23, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Booked this via airbnb and was fully aware that this is a multi-bed accommodation with shared bathroom. The price is very good for Konstanz area and the location is also rather quiet. Easy parking. Free Wifi. Kitchen and living room available for sharing. Overall, this is a good place of operations, you might need a bike or car though as it is located a little bit outside of the center. There's a mixed but cool crowd of people staying there and it's always fun to chat with them. The host, Gerry is a very relaxed and interesting guy, don't miss a chat with him! There's no food/breakfast included, make sure you bring your own or prepare to eat out. Would definitely stay there again if in Konstanz and can recommend the place for people on a budget or who just like to meet new and interesting people.

Bei dieser Gruppe handelte es sich um einen Fußball Fan Club.
Ich habe noch nie so asoziale Menschen in meinem Leben getroffen!
Sie kamen nicht in das schöne Konstanz um an einem Fußball Freundschaftspiel mit einem anderen Fancub teil zu nehmen, sondern um sich weg zu saufen. Es wurden Drogen konsumiert, gesoffen, die ganze Nacht war es laut.
Sie hielten sich an keine Regeln, die Küche musste ich um 6:00 Uhr von Essensresten, welche auch im Garten verteilt waren, befreien.
Es tut mir Leid für meine anderen Gäste, dass ich diese Gruppe nicht aus dem Haus bekommen habe. Die Gruppe war sehr gewaltbereit!
Wir haben unsere Vorschriften für Gruppen und JGA verschärft so etwas wird nicht wieder vorkommen. Ich entschuldige mich bei den anderen Hausbewohnern und Gästen für diese Menschen. "denn sie wissen nicht was sie tun".

Vielen Dank für die Kritik. Die Bilder sind erst 4 Jahre alt und wir haben in dieser Zeit vieles verbessert.
Für die Sauberkeit in der Küche sind eigentlich meine Dauergäste zuständig, es stimmt das funktioniert nicht einwandfrei. Ab sofort führe ich eine Putzpauschale ein und mein Reinigungsteam putzt die Küche nun auch sorgfälltig mit.
Kinder unter 6 Jahren kosten bei uns nichts und die Nacht für 29- 35.- Euro für die Eltern liegen weit unter den 160.- Euro welche man heute Aktuell für ein Doppelzimmer bezahlt. Wir haben einen Kinderspielplatz und einen großen Hof.
