    Located on Barbarossaplatz which is a good transportation hub though far from the Dom and Altstadt. Rooms are basic with metal bunks and convenient small lockers. Bathrooms and showers are on the corridor. I stayed here at a weekend and was surprised by how expensive it was, maybe there was a special event in the city.Kitchen/common room were average. Wifi worked well. Staff were helpful and the atmosphere was quirky, with lots of sheep. I would stay there again.
