“Not bad, but wouldn't recommend”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Perhaps it was because I was one of only 4 people staying at this hostel, but I found it had a slightly neglected feel. Cleanliness was not at par with other German hostels I've stayed in and the staff were not very welcoming. One lady smoked inside the reception area multiple times while I was there, leaving a very strong, lingering odour. Bathrooms are not great either, but rooms are quite spacious (3 tiered bunks in dorms) and kitchen well equipped.

Nice hostel in a great location and the best showers I've come across in any hostel. Staff were great and everything I needed was close by. Would recommend a stay if you are on a budget or if you are just looking for a decent place to crash for a night.

The hostel is not much better than anyone could expect from a hostel. Double beds, living area ok, chicken is small but ok. Someone stole my food from the fridge and I got very angry about that, but I can't blame the hostel for that. The showers are also small and they tend to "flood". There is no space to put your stuff while you are taking a shower.
Internet is paid, so be sure if it's ok for you. On my reservation I thought it was free.
Very close to the central station and the main shopping street. There is a lack of supermarkets nearby or places to by some food on Sunday (most shops are closed on Sundays in Germany).
