    There are computers and great phone signal so who cares about the wifi. Probably the most enjoyable hostel experience I’ve ever had; the most generous staff and a fantastically warm relaxed atmosphere. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Freiburg.

    Amazing, super helpful staff and a very cool looking place to stay. Just a few mins walk to city Center. Bring your own lock, towels, and no wifi, so pricey for what you get.

    I think this is one of those hostels you either love or hate. It has a clean kitchen and great common room with o.a. pingpongball and pool, but also creaking floors that belong to a horror movie and showers that offer little privacy. You won't find a lot of luxery here, but there is a great/openminded atmosphere and welcoming staff. I'd definitely stay here again

    The floor in the dorm was quite loud, better use earplugs, but the showers are kind of funny. =)

    Very Good

    The hostel is decent, but the total lack of wifi and lack of security is deeply concerning. The rooms, showers and toilets don't have locks on them - anyone can walk in on you at any time. Further, they take your ID as a deposit for the key to the hostel instead of cash and leave it sitting in reception - they don't even lock your ID somewhere safe. Staff were nice, but I wouldn't stay here again.

    There is no Wifi, the dorm doors cannot be locked (although there are lockers) and you have to pay for the linen but other than that it is fine.

    Wifi. They don't have WIFI. This was a non-starter for me.

    Very expensive compared to similar hostels. They even charge you extra for bedsheets... Seems very alternative/hippie-like to me. Even photos of Sri Chinmoy, the cult leader, were present in the common room. The showers were too few for everyone and quite dirty. Also they don't provide any wifi because "real connection doesn't require wifi."... As they are the only hostel in Freiburg, you don't have much of a choice, but be aware of what you're choosing!
