“Beautiful views from the castle”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's quite a hike up to the castle but well worth it. Small café inside. It is also used as a Youth Hostel so often lots of children about.

“Stunning hostel”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a week with 50+ students from our school in the UK. Without doubt the most stunning location for a school trip to have a base. Hostel rooms are excellent - basic but impeccably clean and with their own facilities. Staff had tiny but functional rooms with en suite. Hostel facilities are great: large open areas where students can socialise and a games room and big banqueting hall style room which we used with a big screen and sound system for films some evenings. Food is plentiful and tasty. Loved the whole set up and would certainly return either with a school group or in the summer holidays when I was confident that I wouldn't have to share it with someone else's school trip!!

“amazing views”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I stayed in the hostel for 2 days, amazing views from the castle, if you are looking for a hostel to stay in then this is an amazing place to stay. If you want to walk up the hill you will be awaded with the most amazing views over the Rhein. There is a small cafe that serves coffees and cakes.

“Worth the hike for the views”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This castle is now a hostel, we did not stay here, we stayed down in the town. We did hike up to it though. When we went it was very noisy, with young, unsupervised children climbing along the rocks and they were all screaming. So, we were glad to be staying in our quiet B&B in town. But, this is a lovely place to hike up to and enjoy a snack on the terrace while enjoying the beautiful views of the Rhine.

“Hostel”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

It was interesting to see a hostel. Full of children rather than the young adults we expected. It seemed like a fun place for school aged children, and families.
