HI - Kehl Hostel Reviews

Never again

The host of the hostel is the most unfriendly person I've ever met. You can check in only after 5pm. If you come earlier, you can't even enter the building, as she locks it up, because there are no other guests. The reception is open only for 3 hours during the whole day. When I was there, only 10 out of 125 beds were occupied. She even wants you to clean the room and bring out the trash, so that she doesn't have to do anything. Checkout-time is already 8.30 am. If you are a few minutes late, you need luck to find someone to give you your key-deposit back.

If you need a hostel, go to Strasbourg. It's on the other site of the Rhine, only a few hundred meters away.


The location of the hotel is wonderful -- just aside the bicycle track on the Rhine river. the building is the heart of a very nice park with a small lake, a children playground, sport centers, and a landscape tower. A pedestrian bridge leads you on the french river side, where a twin park has been settled. Conversely, the welcome of the hostel is very poor: we have been asked to pay in advance, no credits card are accepted, 20 euros requested as a bail for the key (very uncommon). Finally, no price reduction for a five-year-old kid. The meals are mediocre. During the night some thugs broke the glass of our window, but nobody in the hostels excused for the inconvenience. Therefore we suggest to people going to Strasbourg to consider the french hostels before they choose this one.



The gateway to France. Only the Rhine separates the town from its neighbour of Strasbourg.

Kehl offers culture, shopping and recreational opportunities on land, on water and in the air. Tarte flambée. Asparagus. In Kehl, people appreciate and treasure the cuisine from the Baden region. Right next door in Strasbourg, there's the Alsatian cuisine. Those fond of delicious food will love it here. Fancy some exercise? A walk along the Rhine promenade or to the Handicraft Museum is just the thing. In Kehl, secluded village squares, lined with half-timbered houses, await you!

Fancy a walk by the Rhine? A trip across the bridge over the Rhine to France? Kehl is cosmopolitan. And warm-hearted. In Kehl, you'll experience more summer days than in most places in Germany. The winters are shorter and the summer evenings warmer and longer.

How about going up the Weißtannenturm, an observation tower 38 m high? Have you climbed the 210 steps? On a clear day, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful view of the Black Forest and the Vosges. The play area, with a "Wasserband" ("ribbon of water"), a "balancing garden", a pirate ship and skate park, is along the cut-off meander of the river Rhine.

Want a bit more action? Anyone looking for a big city experience can be in Strasbourg within a few minutes . After climbing 332 steps, the view from the minster is incredible.

Welcome to Kehl. The hostel is located in the town's sports and leisure area, south of the town centre, next to the Rhine.

The Kehl Youth Hostel team is looking forward to your visit!
