Property Description

Berchtesgaden Youth Hostel is located on a hill outside the market community of Berchtesgaden, about 25 minutes away on foot from the railway station, and offers impressive views of the Watzmann mountain and Berchtesgaden National Park.

Made up of various buildings situated in large, park-like grounds with magnificent old trees, the hostel is ideal for sports, games, and leisure pursuits and also offers a toddlers' playground close to one of buildings.

When the countryside lies beneath a blanket of snow in winter, the hostel not only serves as a starting point for skiing but is also centrally located for such winter activities as snowshoe hiking and guided tours in Berchtesgaden National Park.

Berchtesgaden Youth Hostel is suitable for all age groups and weekend stays, and attracts childrens groups, NGO conference groups, families and winter sports enthusiasts.

For a stay with us a Hostelling International Membership is required. International guests without membership pay a surcharge of 3,10 Euro per night for the first 6 nights to obtain a full membership for the use of more than 4.500 Youth Hostels worldwide. German residents aged 26 or younger can become a member of the German Youth Hostel Association for 12,50 Euro per year, older guests and families pay 21,00 Euro per year upon arrival. Prices apply to guests aged 26 or younger. Older guests pay a surcharge of 4,00 Euro per person and night. All prices include breakfast and sheets.

The wifi didn't work in the rooms, only in the lobby (and even that wasn't working) I couldn't lock the bedroom, so anyone could go in. Though there are lockers in the room, that made me uncomfortable The bathroom was shared for men and women and it didn't feel that clean Location was bad. Few buses from the train station to the hostel (specially on weekends). On foot it takes 30min and the path was blocked by construction Mandatory to pay extra 3,5 Euros/night to be a member (?) Good breakfast

You can't lock your room door, a BIG NONO for travellers. Staff prioritizes themselves first, so I got brushed off telling me to wait 5 minutes when I just needed to make a toilet run real quick. They also lost my booking and had to find it. Your beds don't come with sheets already covered, so you're going to put it on yourself, also has bedbugs. You also live ontop of a steep hill, so prepare to hike everytime to get back. Good luck if you have a heavy luggage.

Scoring system doesn't do this hostel justice. I've acknowledged a few oddities and quirks - staff are a tad clueless, no locks anywhere (besides a coin slot locker and standard stuff in bathrooms), and when I arrived, like other guests, I first went to the wrong building as there are a few! Sure, that's all there, but the view out the window was absolutely superb, the breakfast buffet was fab, the rooms were clean, free bus pass for the whole region too. I loved my stay. Thanks!
