The staff is what I didnt like during my stay at this hostel. When I told the young man at the recepsion that my roommate seemed crazy ( he continuously spoke with some kind of a presence and asked me to leave the room) and I didnt felt safe sleeping there he said: It happenes ,its just bad luck.

We are disappointed.for our money we did get a totally ovepriced room with very frugal and ikea-style furniture - and NO bathroom. We have stayed for half or 2/rrds of the money in other places in Germany and felt seriously "fleeced" in Karlsruhe. Avoid. Place is clean and ok serviced. But very simple make-up.

I think the fact this place is located in such a good location just makes it great as an option to stay and get to know Karlsruhe like a local. I stayed for one week and enjoyed my stay. I think the place could improve the kitchen department a little bit since its crowded and small most of the time...

Stayed here one night together with a big group in a 6 bed dorm. The room was kind of dirty, especially above the lockers which was the only place to put your phone etc. when having a top bunk. No electric socket available for the top bunk. We only got 2 keys for the room, which was a bit of...

We have been here 31th of October to 1st of November 2014. We wanted just a clean room to sleep right in the city center without paying a lot. Here we found it! Our low expectations were completely fulfilled and it was even better. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and good showers. Thanks!

In a great location in the middle of Karlsruhe, this Hostel provides you with a clean and nice room. The bathroom is shared but are many options around the hall. It's the perfect place for a young couple.

It's more a hostel than hotel but right in the middle of the shopping zone. A lot of restaurants, Biergarten, bars and the Schlosspark are close to the hotel. The rooms get extremely hot in summer as there are no blinds - the fan in the room is a big help. Showers, kitchen and toilet all clean and very ok...

This place feels like a hotel, not a hostel. It is so great. The staff is great, the rooms are clean, and inside the room there is a large personal cabinet for just your stuff that only you can open. It is about 5 minutes from the "party zone", 15 minutes from the castle, and 25 minutes from the conference...

It was right in the centre of the city, very clean and comfortably. We arrived very late at night and couldn't find the carpark , which turned out to have an entrance one street over. My only downside was the unisex showers which we found offered no privacy , travelling with my teenage daughter we did not feel safe using...

This hotel is a non-serviced apartment rental with shared bathrooms and showers. Its clean, you have access to a kitchen if you need to cook, the Internet works (fast!!) , it couldn't be more central - its really right in the pedestrian shopping area of Karlsruhe! The food options in the area are all great but price/value wise go to...
