Having only one room key to share among everyone in the room is impractical and an inconvenience. Also, there's no space to put your shower items in the shower room... I had to put everything on the floor. Also, the hallways are noisy of people walking back and forth. This hostel just simply didn't have a normal hostel vibe. It's for people who want to sleep and come and go... Not a place to really hang out in. Nonetheless, the location is nice - the hostel is right underneath a fortress.

This hostel has an awesome location even though it's not centrally situated. It lies nestled directly below a towering and nearly 1000 year old castle/fortress (Festung) that sits atop a steep hill surrounded by vinyards (make the hike the hike to the top! Very worth it!) It's not also across from the river and not a far walk to the Altstadt. The hostel itself has a perfect typical german breakfast with a variety of fresh baked bread. The staff is very friendly and gives great suggestions.
