    Overall, this hostel was very nice. It’s location and cleanliness were both great. The free breakfast that is included is also a perk. It’s really cool to stay inside the city walls and only be a short walk away from the main square. The only “complaint” I have is the groups of kids who were staying on the property. I was in the “overflow” rooms in the other building and kids were running and yelling up and down the halls. Curfew or supervision are needed for these groups.

    It is in the town centre and I would definitely come back again! This is the epitome of Youth hostel: huge, plenty of facilities, very large kitchen, cosy rooms, green all around, helpful receptionist. It is nothing I've been to before, it is better. Compared to other hostels: -it is made of truly medieval buildings, with completely refurbished interiors. -it has plenty of space and two buildings separated some distance. The bathrooms, showers, etc, everything is big here.

    Great place, clean, and the staff was great. Location is also excellent because Rothenburg is so small

    Nice stay here, great location, friendly staff, and a great breakfast. Really not much to complain about, but what would improve this hostel would be a little more atmosphere (most of the game room, lounge area, was empty or blocked off). And the shower was a bit flooded. But the staff were very friendly, and its a great place to stay in Rothenburg. Recommended.

    Pros: great location in the old town along the wall (about 20 minutes walk from the train station), free water and tea, microwave and fridge access, great free breakfast, the front desk staff were super nice (Sylvia in particular was the BEST!) Cons: a lot of school groups and young kids were staying there and ran through the halls at all hours which got really annoying. The toilets didn’t smell very good. No WiFi in the rooms you stay in. Overall a good hostel where the pros outweighed the con

    Decent wifi and power point (I was the only person in my room). Breakfast is plentiful. The only thing to note is that the hostel can be hard to locate in the dark (as map and gps locations can leave you running around in circles). Plus reception closes at 8 PM and not contactable during off-hours. I arrived late at night due to train/scheduling issues and luckily found a good samaritan who led me to the location after quite a while getting lost.

    Staff was very helpful and facilities were pretty clean. Location was a little hard to find as there aren't any clearly marked signs leading you to the hostel. Walls are a little thin and there was a large group of under 15 year olds that were quite rambunctious, but the town itself was pretty quiet and peaceful at night. All in all, a pretty decent place.

    Just on the edge of the old city, it is in a good location. We were in the building just across from the main centre where there was no wifi. That building also felt like it was a place that regularly held school camps. There were long dark hallways and not a good social atmosphere - that could, however, be due to it being the winter season.

    Door didn't lock properly. No wifi in the block where all the beds actually are, only across the road in the main block where the dining room is. Location is good and staff were pretty helpful though.
