Reviewed 9 December 2012

I would go back. Clean. Quiet. Good wifi connection. Had a private room. Warm. Big shared kitchen. Friendly. Good location right at the Hauptbahnhof. Could benefit from being a little less expensive though.

I stayed in the double ensuite room. The room was very large with a mini kitchen and our own balcony (although there wasnt really a view of anything). The bed was also extremely comfortable. The hostel's location is excellent, directly across the street from the train station and about a five minute walk from the center of town. It is on the second floor, but there is an elevator. The staff was also very nice and sells beer and local wine until midnight. There was a breakfast available for about 5 euros but we did not have it.

I would note that this is a hostel and not a hotel. As such, there are a decent amount of young people staying here and it has a young vibe. Nevertheless, our room was quite and my boyfriend and I did not feel out of place staying here. Will stay again if returning to Wurzburg.

There is nothing wrong with Babelfish and I would have no problem staying here again. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the hostel is well located near the train station and only a few minutes walk from the center of town.

Given the general bear quality of the hostel, I would say it is just average, but more than satisfactory. Reading other reviews, I think "spartan" is the most apt word to describe the place.

Parking is 2 min drive from the hostel. It's like some floor of apartment renting to service as a hostel. reception and dining area are in second floor and 4th floor of the buiding are rooms which bad color painting smell and poor ventilated smell.The worst is that we have to pay extra for towels and have to collect the bed sheet ,towel everything to reception at the time of check out other wise another deposit of 3 euro for bed sheet,pillow sheet are not refunds.

Wuerzburg was our first stop on a back-packing trip of Romantic Road, and Babelfish hostel ensured we kicked-it-off smoothly. Situated right across the train station. The room was spartan - clearly meant to shoo you off to explore the town. Lack of AC made it a bit stuffy, especially since we had got the top floor. Guess it would be worse in summer! The receptionist was quite helpful to us - with the touring directions and the hostel amenities (which include a kitchen, washing machines). Although free wifi was available, there were problems throughout our stay with accessing it on our floor (the receptionist was clueless on rectifying it)

Clean Hostel near the train station. Nothing fancy, if you are a light sleeper it can get a little noisy as is on a busy road.
Wurzburg is a great place to visit, try to get there for a wine festival and be sure to have a beer in the beer garden in the castle overlooking the city.
Short walk to all the city has to see.
