    It's very modern and cool and I really liked it!! Went interrailing and stayed here and it was probably my favourite hostel that I stayed in! Stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was quite chill, I really liked the decor and the location as well.

    Ohh so much to say about this place - I only planned to stay a couple of days but ended up staying for 2 weeks, it’s a magical hub filled with beautiful people and so close to the forest and the town. I met many people who had been returning to the hostel for years and years and I think I’ll also be doing the same - beautiful home.

    Had a great time here! The staff was super helpful and answered all my questions, the facilities were clean, and the beds were comfortable. My only gripe is the squeaky floors that made me feel like I was waking up the whole room when I walked through. Other than that I enjoyed having lockers and the lounge was a great place to hang and unwind after a long day and play some pool or ping pong. Would definitely stay here again!

    The room was really big and the matrass comfortable (you have to rent the bedsheets). I found inconvenient the lack of WiFi. The personal was super nice!

    Warm and courteous staff, the setting of the hostel which ensures a community/sharing feel. I had a good time and would recommend to anybody visiting Freiburg. Only downside: €4 for the bedding. Could easily have added it to the bed charge, and plus no WiFi

    Very Good

    The Black Forest hostel is approximately 15 mins away from the main train station. The site does not have any ac or WiFi. The floors are extremely squeaky. The rooms are large and they provide lockers (must use your own lock) that are quite large and useful. The bathrooms were clean for the most part and a large kitchen area on the first floor.

    Great location and kitchen but everything else was average including the staff. A older woman working there told me “I don’t speak English “. That’s absolutely fine but don’t blatantly ignore me and engage with all the German speaking hostellers. Hospitality needs work on. Our room wasn’t checked so two hostellers had to strip the beds and make them up. Waking everyone in dorm at 11 pm, not their fault. Not much of a vibe and decor looks like it has potential but doesn’t quite get there.

    So, Freiburg is a super cool town... I absolutely loved it there. This hostel is kinda sketchy on the security because there are no locked doors and you need to bring locks with you. They use like old gym lockers that are easy to pull open even when locked so definitely think about security. The restrooms were very clean, clean linens, and super comfortable beds. I enjoyed my stay here overall but... Security, Security, Security, Security. Also, no wi-fi which really sucks.

    Have WiFi. Not all of us have data and wish to keep in contact with our families. I don’t want to strip for people every time I shower/don’t want to leave my clothes where anyone could take them (it didn’t happen, but there’s no feeling of security). Personal rooms didn’t have locks, like, again, if you didn’t put all your things in your locker ANYONE, not just your roommates could go in/I was in all girl room, if some guy wanted he could have come in.Why charge for bedding? Just

    The main two problems are that there is no wifi and none of the doors lock. Given the lack of these capacities, the price seems too high. There are lockers but without locking doors it is an inconvenience to constantly be putting things in lockers.
