“A well-run hostel with beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

I stayed at Rheintal-Jugendherberge for a week-long youth conference.

The hotel is situated on top of a cliff, which is something people arriving by train should prepare for. Climbing up with your luggage isn't exactly fun, and if you want to eat out or get food from the local supermarket, you'll have to climb down and then up all over again. The good side of the altitude is the stunning view over the meandering Main and the vineyard and villages along it. Although it was early spring when I was there, the views were impressive.

The pool and the conference room are nice and fairly modern and the rooms are spacious. The only awkward thing was, that the shower was not in a separate room, but just straight at the room door. It didn't bother me, but if you're modest and sharing your room with strangers, it might might be more of a problem.

One of my favourite things were the exercise opportunities. There was a nice, warm pool to swim in, and little roads to jog along, accompanied by panoramic views. The food was okay, but nothing too special.

Overall, I had a great stay and was very pleased with the hostel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the castle or the river.

Overall, this was a very good accommodation. I was here for a retreat, and was impressed by the way the hostel and staff accommodated our group. The food was fine. The views overlooking the Rhine were beautiful. There was plenty of space and different areas around the hostel to be in - the pool, a bar, a game room, large lobby area. My one complaint is that the shower area in the room did not have any kind of curtain or separate room. If you are in a room with people you don't know, this could definitely be an issue as there is no way to get into the shower without being visible to the entire room (especially a problem if people are frequently coming and going out of the room!)

I would stay here again, but make sure to be in a room with people I know!
