    Everything was clean, staff were friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. I did not speak German, so I appreciated their patience with me. Easy to find via instructions/Google maps, with a sign so you know where to turn to find them. Other guests were also friendly and polite, I felt more at ease than expected. The complimentary coffee in the kitchen is AMAZING. Definitely will stay again if I am lucky enough to return to Freiburg. Just remember to confirm with a new email 3 days ahead

    Good facilities and comfortable bed. The staff were all very friendly and there was a good community vibe. It is a little far from the Hbf but still easily walkable.

    I stayed in the Black Forest Hostel for three nights and it was great! I would highlight the kitchen where you can cook using the utilities already in there. The living room is also really big and cozy. I slept in a dorm with 5 more people and didn't have any problem. You can rent bed linen and padlock for the wardrobe. There is no Wifi but nowadays you can share your smartphone's 4G to your laptop so it wasn't a problem.

    We had a great stay at the Black Forest Hostel. Staff were helpful and friendly during our stay. We had an issue where there was a group deposit to be paid which wasn’t informed or included in the booking email but just a minor point. There’s a big kitchen, fully equipped with lots of storage space for your food. Big social space with hammock and pillow area. There is also a dog!!! Lots of musical instruments that people play (really well). We loved our stay and would stay again!

    I found the Hostel huge and beautiful but I found a pity that there is no WiFi and I understand the reason:they don't want to see people constantly on the phone but while traveling,many times people cannot wait to be in the hostel to have finally the wifi and say to the family and friends that everything is fine (and do many other things!).An other problem for me was that there is no"smoking area"where to connect with"other smokers"(normal people btw!)just a wet bench under the rain outside...

    I liked this hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was no WiFi, but they have computers if you need something. There is a big kitchen and a nice space to hang out. The 20 bed room is obviously large and you can never be sure who all will be staying there, so one night was quiet but the next night included an annoyingly loud group. The location is about 20 minutes by foot from the train station - Freiburg isn't that big of a town, but it is so nice!

    Perfect location for both the old town and for outdoor walking. Given that it’s the only hostel in the area, it’s perfectly suitable. Not particularly cozy or comfortable common rooms but good as a place to crash.
