This hostel is the best.perfectly charming.
Gorgeous views of the Rhine below. I could have sat on the ramparts of this castle and enjoyed the view of the Rhine below for hours. So peaceful.My husband and I enjoyed some wine from the Castle and relaxed in the courtyard watching the boats sail by below.What a romantic setting.
The location high up on the hill makes walking up a bit of a climb but well worth the view at each step. Close to train station.We came by car and drove up the road from the back and had ample parking in lot and on street.There was a bus stop for local traffic there also.
l.The room we had was in a tower all by ourselves .It had a sink,bunkbeds and
a gorgeous view. The bathrooms and showers were down the hall and were clean.It did have a light that if you didn't press it on again it would go out (energy saver) which was a bit unnerving at first.
The common spaces that were a room for games some vending machines for snacks and even a room for children to play stocked with puzzles and building blocks and toys for younger children.
The food was served cafeteria style and we had breakfast which was a huge choice of fresh fruit,eggs,meat, breads and hot chocolate, juices and coffee.While we were there only one other adult and a visiting school group was in the other area of the castle, so our sleep was quiet. As we are not smokers ,it was delightful not to have to deal with smokers.
It was as if we had the place to ourselves.The staff was efficient,spoke English and were friendly and helpful
Summary:l this was a great experience in a gorgeous setting that I would recommend as a must do for castle lovers and Rhine travelers.
