Bad: The location from the train station is quite far, and the instruction to the hostel is not clear enough, we cannot find the map on platform. Good: the staff are so helpful and friendly. The breakfast is so good!


Just a couple minutes walk from the main downtown area. Great hostel, although there were a bit too many children running around.


The staff were not so friendly, but it is in a great location & breakfast was included which was nice. The cleanliness was average, share bathrooms & toilets were not cleaned every day which is important for me. Overall I would stay here again due to its location only.


Breakfast is really great! Eggs, cakes,hams etc are provided. I enjoyed a full meal there. You have to get on and off the sheet by yourself. The bedroom cannot be locked if you are inside and the people outside can lock the door. It is very odd. The opening time of reception is only 2pm-8pm so time control of your trip here is less flexible. Bathroom are big and clean.


It's very thoughtful of you to provide tea and coffee all the time, especially in the winter. And the location is superb. The only suggestion I would like to make is to provide backpackers with some body/hair wash in the shower room.

The cleanliness is quite minimum, most of the facilities has been worn out, may be the hostel is too old...The light went off twice during my shower due to it has the automatic light off system. The price paid for definitely not value for money. But have got no choice, think this is the only hostel in Rothenburg. Apart from that, the stuff and the location are perfect.
