The hostel was more like a hotel, there's no social atmosphere, I got to talk to some guys in the room so it was ok, but there's no lounge, no chilling area, the only place seems to be the terrace, but people use it to smoke. When I ask where can I relax and use my laptop, they told me to use the kitchen (which has a table and 4 chairs) but it's no ideal. Staff hardly speaks english so it was kind of difficult to checkout, overall a good stay, regensburg is a nice city, but the hostel... erm...
The Abotel is a Hotel with "hostel-like" facilities - like a dormitory etc. I stayed in the 10-persons mixed dormitory - a very small room with four bunkbeds and two single beds, a table in the middle of the room and one attached bathrooms. It was clean, but in my opinion too many people for this small room - for six persons it would be also sufficient - because there is not enough space for the luggage at all - it was stuffed. But for one night it was ok....
Hostel is on the opposite side of Danube, when you are looking from Regensburg city center. It is, however, only some 5 minutes from the main railway station, when you are arriving with bus lines 1 and 5. The building is located nearby Regensburg`s largest mall, Donau Einkaufszentrum, Important: THERE ARE small safe lockers, however not in room, but in a corridors, and they are free, however not quite easy for use. As there are no keys, you can checkout even when there is no one on reception.
