    This place is great! Really friendly folks working there and it’s in a great location! Great base for doing some hiking in the area. Public transit is great around here too so it’s easy to get to any hikes you want from here, but some of the best ones start just minutes walk from the hostel. For sure stay here!

    The hostel is located just a short hike away from the Königstein fortress and a stone's throw away from the Elberadweg. Staff was really friendly and helpful and offered a lot of information on activities in the area. The rooms were clean and spacious, and in the dorms each bed had an individual light and power outlet for charging phones or laptops.

    I highly recommend staying at this hostel if you are considering of hiking around Bad Schandau. The hostel is only 1 stop away from Bad Schandau. The owners are very friendly, and kept the hostel clean throughout my two nights stay there. There is also a supermarket nearby. The weather was horrible during my two-night stay there, and most ppl cancel their reservations (had the 10 bed dorm all to myself). However, the owners are happy to talk, so do buy them a few bottle of beers!

    Very clean and quiet hostel. The town is super cute and the hostel is located in the center of the National Park. So if you are doing any hiking it is a prime location. There is a full kitchen and I made most of my meals there. The hostel owner is very helpful and gives good suggestions for hiking and camping in the surrounding areas. Keep in mind this hostel only takes cash, (no card payment) but there is a ATM very close in the town.

    The owner was really friendly and helpful! Really appreciate that. I checked in slightly earlier and he was flexible to arrange that for me and even introduced the nearby hikes i could do. The location is great, especially if you are looking for some scenic walks, take a ferry across the river and you could walk all the way to the next station Rathen to see the Bastion as well.

    Very Good

    We stayed here to visit the Saxon Switzerland National Park which is beautiful and well worth the visit. Konigstein is a good staging point for visiting these places. Comfortable mattresses and good bathrooms. There are a few small lockers that need reasonably thick locks to lock them. They’re only big enough for a small backpack. There aren’t locks on doors. There are lots of pots and pans in the kitchen- no shared microwave, though. There is a supermarket less than 5min away.
