    Very friendly staff and made sure in a polite way that all people must wear a mask. I have nothing negative to say about this place.

    The Black Forest Hostel has a nice atmosphere. It really is in keeping with the energy of the city. If I back to Freiburg, it would be my option to stay.

    The staff was mad friendly and helpful. Stayed in a 20 bed room which I thought would be annoying but turned out to be great for the price. Freiburg has become one of my favorite cities in Germany: centered in the Black Forest, there are endless hikes and outdoor activities, and the city itself is a lively but relatively quiet university town. After growing tired of being in big city in weeks prior, this place was exactly what I was looking for. Would definitely stay again

    This was a very functional hostel. Nice rooms and facilities, clean, and close to the Altstadt. There wasn’t much of a hostel atmosphere, but it 100% served my purposes for a place to stay.

    All in all a nice hostel to stay in. The location is perfect, still near the city centre but located in a silent surrounding also very close to the Dreisam river. Sometimes the wifi connection wasn't fully working or it was a little slow.

    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.

    The hostel is well located, 10mn walking from the center. The price per night is reasonable. We stayed there 2 nights for a week-end away with a friend but the atmosphere in the hostel was really quiet and everyone was keeping it to themselves probably because of Covid restrictions. That honestly made the atmosphere a bit weird (nothing the hostel can do about though!). The floor and lockers in the rooms are very noisy so it's difficult to go in and out without waking up other people.

    Staff wasnt al too friendly and receptive. Place is clean and centre is closeby. Dorms were too hot and there are no airco's so I would avoid the place in summer. 2nd floor has a floor that makes a lot of noise, so I would request a room on a different floor.

    Great location close to the old town. Not really a cozy hostel where you want to hang out. Staff could be more friendly.
