In my opinion, the hostel suitable for students. Older people and family may experience some kind of inconvenience. But for young people the hostel is very good.

Excellent place right next to the Hauptbahnhof and near the Kunsthalle. Was a bit nervous of 'mixed' dormitories, but it was ok...I showered in the evening when other occupants were out. Shower was very narrow and resulted in banged elbows for a large (6'3'') person like me. Wash basin was too small and access to it obstructed by a low shelf, making tooth-brushing very difficult. Also, racks for hanging towels to dry would have been a nice touch.... But these are minor gripes and I would definately use this place again!

It may be a good choice if you have a limited budget. Excellent location, relatively new, modern. Very basic, but clean. Some advice: the private room is still a room of 3, low ceiling bunkbeads with single occupancy. Do not forget to bring a towel.
