    Quite nice location as it is near the city center. Everything is nice and they even allowed to check out on 5 pm before the staff come in. Overall it's a nice experience to stay there. Would stay here again if I visit Kiel next time.

    It's just the cutest Hostel I've ever been to! Because the staff is super nice and friendly and they only have 8 beds in total it really feels like home. I also liked the fact that they had an actual bathroom - which was super clean btw. - instead of bathroom stalls etc. I'm definitely going to stay at Peanuts Hostel whenever I come back to Kiel.

    Very Good

    Limited check-in time: just 2 hrs a day. On the bright side, you can check out pretty much whenever you want! I was all alone in the hostel and that was wierd. It was a bit cold in there, the shower was really hard to use due to the broken faucet/shower switch. Wifi worked well. No microwave in the kitchen, all other things are in place. Genereally this is an OK place, but don't expect anything special from a flat turned into a hostel.

    It's a great location and the guy that checked us in was great however i wouldn't call this a hostel, I'd just call it an apartment with a tow hour window to check in.. and they do make it clear that that's when they are available how ever they also have (luggage storage) in their facilities description, yet if you get there earlier you have no access to that storage. I just believe they should make it clear for guest to store their luggage in the train station before they try and check in
