This hostle was surprisingly good! It was super cheap compared with other places, and it is in a very good location. We booked two beds from a 10-bed room, but we were upgraded into a 6-bed room, with only two of us! 😇 The room was really clean. Bed linen was quite ok as well , and the pillow was...

Located just outside the compact historic center, this hostel is a nice base for exploring Wernigerode. It has reasonable facilities and a good breakfast. Reception hours were very restricted, even though the staff, when available, was very helpful.

The hostel is within easy reach of the sites of the town, a grocery store and the main rail station. The man working there was friendly, just in a German way, so maybe not everyone would interpret him as friendly. I stayed in the six bed room and it was clean and had a private bathroom. It was also nice...

We were driving to the place from Burg Kriebstein via mountains, curvy roads, sunset and guess what happened, a deer appeared in front of our car. I've never expected they could appear that fast. So anyway when we came to the place doors were closed! Be careful guys the check-in is only till 8 PM and that is it! The...

Good location, walking distance to the center of a town. Very strange service. When we arrived a guy at the reception acted very surprised like we had no reservation. After I showed booking.com confirmation he said "Well, ok". Unfriendly! We were choosing this place based on a price. But actually we overpaid, as there were many other charges not included...

This hostel makes incorrect claims in its facilites. There is no courtyard. It looks as though there may have been access to the back at one time but this area is now used by other residents and the back door is locked, with no access from the road which would be needed for bike storage. There is no washing machine...

I staid at the Harz hostel in October of 2011 and loved it. The owner was very nice and helpful he even called to helped me get into a church that was closed so I could see my coat of arms in it. The hostel was one of the cleanest I have ever been to. It is walking distance to...

The gentleman in charge of reception was very polite and helpful and let us into our room (which was a private double with it's own bathroom) an hour or so earlier than the official time. The room was spacious, but was a bit musty, needed a good airing. There was an excellent bathroom, except that the shower was a good...
