    You do have to pay extra for bedding which is totally fine! It’s a great location! The beds are comfortable. The bathroom and showers are in the hallway and there is little room to change and get ready in the morning m. I loved my stay though and would stay again!

    Very Good

    This hostel is in a great location and feels safe which was important for me as a solo female traveler. However, it is expensive considering you also need to pay for use of sheets/duvet. I was in the female only dorm which is up quite a few stairs and there is no elevator so if you have a heavy bag it can be a little difficult.

    Basic hostel which isnt bad, it had everything you need. The bed was comfortable and the showers were nice. You have to pay for bed linens which is a downer. Also, if coming from a long day, they might not have your bed available even at check in time. There were atleast 6 different people waiting around until the rooms were clean. Took almost 2 hours after supposed check in time.

    The Hostel is good for a short stay but need to improve the facility, the rooms need more privacy and organization, and need to set stronger rules for the parties, one night I almost couldn't sleep because of the music of a party was annoying. When I did the check in the staff was friendly and helped me a lot but when I did the check out another member of the staff just was barely polite. Black Forest hostel need to make an improvement.
