Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to Bacharach hostel - home of a very friendly welcome and a unique setting. The world-famous modern youth hostel is situated in the historic 12th-century Stahleck Castle, towering above the Rhine valley.

The romantic town of Bacharach is one of the loveliest places in the Rhine Gorge. The main street has been restored to give an impression of what it might have looked like in the Middle Ages and everywhere in the town you’ll find traditional half-timbered houses, picturesque courtyards and cosy wine taverns.

The hostel is ideal for exciting family holidays, schools trips, hiking and cycling groups or individual travellers - and equally great for events, workshops, music camps and functions. With full conference facilities, there's also plenty of leisure options: games, table tennis, pinball, piano - you name it!

It was a very beatiful experience, to stay in the old castel just like as a Koenigin?!! A lot of walk makes you sporty & healthy. Good landscape from the tophill down to the Rhein makes you feel klasse. If you are still y o u n g, you must visit there!!

I will not stay at this hostel again. Despite asking twice I was refused a key to my room. One of the other occupants of the 4 bed room was given it and then locked the door, preventing me getting into the room I had paid for. I had to surrender my Passport to the barman to get into the room to go to bed. How ridiculous that a 4 bed room only has one key. Security non existent. I have stayed at many JDH hostels, this is the only one I will not go back to.
