Guests can enjoy snacks and drinks in its communal lounge, have access to lockers available for storage, and free WiFi is available throughout the property. The staff was helpful and polite, and other guest were considerate in regards to a dorm room. Windows in dorm room!!! Good air. I like the fact it is away from Central activity, only a 10 minute walk to major transportation, and plenty of food options. Kitchen option, but I was only passing through. For Germany in general, great value.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
