Visiting Rothenburg ob der Tauber was one of the highlights of my trip to Germany. Although the hostel is a 15 minute walk from the train station, it is still in a great location in the old part of the city. The only negatives: 1) This place is a bit expensive for a hostel, but it was clean and worth spending the night. 2) There is not a social atmosphere at all. My room was empty and I hardly saw other guests. Still a great visit!


cool unique hostel!


excellent hostel. A bit tricky to find and a little expensive to be a hostel, but everything else was great, especially the receptionist, very friendly!. And the breakfast was exceptional.

The only hostel in Rothenburg. It was fine, beds had headlights and electric socket. You have to make your own bed with linen you pick up in the basement. The doors to the room does not necessarily lock after you leave so check it. The light in the shower room is by sensor so in the middle of my shower it turned pitch black and I had to step out to reactivate the light. The breakfast is good but don't buy the dinner for 6.5 euro better to find a sandwich or pizza in town. No WiFi in rooms.


The showers weren't that clean and I would recommend bringing shower slippers. The breakfast was good - variety of breads, good jams, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, etc. Their directions to get to the hostel were a little confusing but they gave us a nice map of Rothenburg.


Rooms were okay, need to have a mixed dorm though but I can see alot f school groups stay here hence the seperate sex dorms. Breakfast was good, very loud due to high number of kids though A little hard to find as it's located in an area surrounded by apartments/houses so you don't really know you've found the hostel, could do with a big sign maybe? Great location staff were not very helpful and seemed to just want to go back to sittinf in the kitchen area rather than being behind the desk


History buffs will love this place, from the hostel to all its surroundings. Everything was very good, the staff were very friendly and professional.


Very friendly staff, clean rooms and toilets, great breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hostel to friends.

The building was amazing and in a great location. I would stay there again!


I would defentily recommend of staying here. The Hostel is in a great location, clean and the staff was very helpful. If you stay here, just becareful with the bedroom door. They have a keycard entry that you need to use to lock the door as well, when you leave. I thought it locked automatically, until I came back to the room and the wind blew the door open. Oh and you do need a hostel international membership card , but you can just get a temporary at the hostel for only 3 to 4€ a night


Great breakfast.


It's a great hostel for a backpacker! The breakfast is fantastic and the information from staff there is so helpful. But it's a pity that I cannot connect to the WIFI in my room, which is inconvenient.


It was perfect.


This is a really nice hostel in an amazing building. The dorm I stayed was very spacious and the lockers were big so you could put all your luggage there if you wanted. The included breakfast was really good with lots of options and the staff were very kind, i'd stay here again for sure.
