The hostel was fine. It was nice and clean. The only things i didn't like was the fact that there was no lock on the door of the dorm and the fact that you had to pay for the wifi.


A good and clean hostel and also not far from the central railway station. A very nice and well-equipped kitchen. An interesting building with a special atmosphere.


Breakfast isn't included, either is WiFi. Nothing really special about the hostel. It seemed like mostly older couples were there, using it as a cheap alternative to a hotel. Not a good place to meet backpackers, but it's spacious and clean. Within walking distance to everything.


Hostel is cool. Everything was good accept WiFi. 1 euro pro hour and it was good only in the kitchen and hallway. Nevertheless hostel is GREAT!


The room is nice and cozy, and its good to have a real kitchen. Thin wall that you can hear people talk everything next room. It was construction outside, so a bit noisy in the morning. Beware that the price is not it said to be , they have their own pricing according to their website. When you found out you need to pay additional money not be told, even its not a huge amount, but still make people feel bad.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, just one question to your comment. You write about "additional money" - what do you mean with this? You paid 13,00 EUR/night what is our website price - exactly spoken we could have charged you 13,05 EUR as your Hostelworld-booking said. But then you will find on the hostelworld-information for OPERA Hostel too that bedlinen and towels is not included unless you stay for 3 or more nights, this is what you paid an extra 2,50 EUR for.


+ The lady receptionist was very sweet & helpful. The older gentlemen (owner?) was also very friendly and put forth a lot of effort to make sure I was satisfied. + The cleanest hostel I have ever seen! - The cost of the WiFi wasn't made clear to me; I unnecessarily bought a few smaller-increment sets of WiFi before knowing a cheaper, 24-hour one was available. - The male employee lied to the owner(?) about explaining the above to me. His explanation was brief and perhaps irritable.


Definitely a good deal for the price, although personally I wouldn't mind paying a little more per night if it meant the wifi could be included. Dorm security wasn't great (no keys), but they provided big under-bunk lockers. Very easy to get to from the train station.


Awesomest hostel in Germany, hands down. Easy to find, central and welcoming.
