Some noises of the train in the room. Parking too expensive.


The hostel is right next to the train station. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and a good size. Staff were helpful when I asked them questions but all the signage around the building is quite confusing. You have to pay a deposit for the key to use the kitchen which is locked which is strange.


The location is ok( next to the the train station,about 20 min walk to the center). Girl at the reception was helpful. I had a bad experience with our roommates. They were loud during the night and made a mess in the bathroom so I couldnt take a shower in the morning. That aside an average hostel.


Staff is very unfriendly and do not inform about facilities.

i wasn't very pleased as for the extra cost of bed linen, and credit card payment fee, which is in hostels of such proportions just ridiculous. Not going to stay another time.

stayed in a twin room, was really nice, bit small but with an ensuite. felt more like a hotel than hostel. incredibly close to the hauptbahnhoff


Good overall. The only thing I disliked is that when I tried to speak with the staff in German (because I want to practice it), they replied me in English >.


It was a great place to stay. Friendly staff and helpful.


POSITIVE: easy to find as located right next to Hauptbahnhof... close to transport round city... NEGATIVE: even with windows open in rooms, rooms stuffy... Staff only adequate...


Located just right next to the Karlsruhe train station and plenty of trams nearby as well. The room was tidy and neat with plenty of windows, enough sunlight coming in. The price was ok but a little steep and could be due to the Das Fest taking place the weekend I was there. Otherwise, everything was good :)


Great location, clean room and a nice bar.


Pretty nice place. A hotel\hostel mix. Like 20 steps away from the train station and a bit of a hike to the downtown but not too bad. Staff was helpful. Rooms could have used a fan


Absolutely recomended! will repeat in other cities the same hostels! =)
