    I had a great stay at the hostel, very friendly owner who showed me around on arrival. The accommodation itself was cozy and clean and very centrally located: Just a short walk from the train station. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to visit Bamberg.

    The hostel is located very close to the train station en route to the old town. Great location for travellers like myself, stopping through Bamberg while on a longer trip. The landlady is extremely friendly and she offers a laundry service, There isn't much in the way of common space (except for a courtyard) so if you are looking for a big social environment, this place may not be for you. I would stay there again if staying in Bamberg.

    Sweetest couple runs this place, reminded me so much of my own grandparents. Very willing to help out, facilities and amenities are abundant and the option for laundry is very cheap compared to most other hostels that offer laundry.

    Friendly but seemingly very busy staff. The lady who collected your cash payment seems constantly on the go to deal with various things, making her look extremely energetic. The hostel is small and nice.

    Great place to stay, just understand this is simply a single shared 4-person room. If you’re a solo traveler and looking for a social space, this isn’t the spot for you. Otherwise, the space is great. Facilities are new and clean, the host is accommodating, and you can’t bed it for the price.

    The Sleepy Owl is a lovely little hostel, very clean and quaint. The 4 bedded room was quite small, it has lockers, a table, sofa and fridge. There is no extra common area. The bathrooms consist of a single toilet and 2 showers also with another toilet in the room. The location was fantastic and is walk-able distance from the train station and into town itself. The owner is lovey and always up for a chat. It was a good place for short stays. Overall cleanliness was excellent.
