The accommodation is in rooms with one to four beds. The hostel also serves meals.

Kiel ferry services offer trips to Oslo and Gothenburg. Kiel Week, more properly known in English as the Kiel Regatta, is the largest sailing event in the world and takes place every year in the last full week in June. Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade.
