As close as you can get to staying near the train station without sleeping on the platforms. Literally next door. Nice enough rooms and staff are good as well. Walking distace to the centre of Karlsruhe, but public transport is available right out the front door as well.

The cleanliness was good. The washing machine broke and there was a problem with the water that was both out of staff's control. Generally I thought the staff at reception were helpful. The main downside to this 'hostel' is that it's really a hotel.
I stayed in the female dorm for three nights and it was very dirty. The shower was full of hair and there was no soap in the distributor. There was wet towels and linen of the floor. Despite this, the staff was very helpful and friendly. I had a problem with a girl in my room (she brought a guy in the dorm) and the staff intervened quickly. The location is good, just next to the main train station, but it's not in the center. If you're looking for a hostel atmosphere, it's not the place to be.
the WIFI system is...well I think the hotel makes it too complicated.
Close to the train station, easy to find. Good facilities, free wifi in the lobby. I have not met one person during my travels who carried their own sheets so don't see why not just include them in the price. To each their own I guess. All you can eat breakfast was well worth it. Rather hotel-like so no real hostel atmosphere. Hefeweissbier on tap at a decent price. Good place to stay.
This hostel is located right next to the station; hence very convenient if one wishes to travel to nearby towns. However, this hostel seems to have low occupancy and hence, there was stale smell in some areas. Hence, overall atmosphere is not very cheerful. Overall good hostel for an overnight stay.
My 6-bed-room inlcuding the bath-room (24€ for a bed) was really dirty. Blankets and towels cost extra. WiFi is with 5€ daily absolutely overpriced. No lockers or s.th. like that availyble. The main street with a lot of trams going on is quite noisy. I can't recommend this hostel at all.
