    Great location. Amazing stuff. It was the first hostel where I saw kids around and even a indoor playground with toys. Absolutely loved this feature.

    The staff was really friendly and polite. The hostel had both woman and men showers/bathrooms. The only thing for me is security. Yes they did have lockers however the room doors were always unlocked. The front door is locked at night but anyone staying within the hostel can switch rooms without a key it seems. Overall my stay here was good :)

    Solid hostel, good facilities and nice staff. Solo female traveler in a 20 person dorm, and I didn’t see many other women in our room, but everyone kind of kept to themselves anyway and I never felt uncomfortable. A bit expensive when everything is included, but as the only hostel I found on here it was a good place to stay

    Very nice and clean. Love the atmosphere. The doors don’t have locks but they do have lockers to store your stuff. Make sure to bring your own lock and sleeping bag because they charge for sheets. Very good location for hiking.

    As this is the only website's hostel in Freiburg, you get no choice. It's not bad though, has a community kitchen and multiple social areas. Just be prepared to keep pressing the water in the shower since, if it turns off on you, you'll get blasted by cold water.

    I have never before come across having to pay for your bed linen at a hostel, it's included in the price. Given that I paid for a private room I'd expect linen included AND towels. My double bed was two single beds put together with a wooden plank down the middle- not nice for a couple, and we saw that other private double rooms had a double bed in them. No wifi pretty outdated for 2019.
