Jugendherberge Stuttgart International Hostel Reviews

Jugendherberge Stuttgart International Hostel, with its stunning views, is a fairly classic, HI-style hostel with interior decor like most of HI hostels from forty years ago, and we think the rooms could use a renovation. The atmosphere is more geared towards students and groups, but single travelers can still mingle and meet new people. The included breakfast is fairly good, with a variety of different options more than the usual continental breakfast.

The Location

The hostel's location is not very convenient to the city center, but the excellent views of the city, especially at night, make up for the location. It is intriguingly built into the side of a very steep hill, and the entrance requires crossing a foot bridge and descending a glass tower with three-hundred-sixty-degree views. The nearest public transport is a little less than ten minutes by foot, with a few trolley lines servicing the nearest stop. The hostel is in a very quiet residential area with no shops or cafes nearby, and walking there at night along dark streets can feel somewhat intimidating.

Rooms and Bathrooms

At the time they were built, the rooms may have been high style, but the old, wooden, nineteen-seventies style bunk beds; dingy floors; and older bathrooms are in need of renovation, but the mattresses are comfortable. There are adequately sized lockers and tables with chairs in the rooms, along with reading lights in the bunk beds. In the bathroom, the water pressure and temperature are adequate, but there aren't enough convenient places to keep things dry when showering or using the sink, and the space is very small and a little grungy, albeit generally clean.

Common Spaces

This hostel is teeming with large common spaces on multiple levels, including a game room, reading/meeting areas, and a huge dining area with an outdoor balcony overlooking the valley. The common areas are great places to meet people or just to hang out away from your room. The amount of common spaces is more than most hostels we've visited, and were the most pleasant part of our stay at this hostel, and it's easy to meet new people there. Because the common spaces are separated from the sleeping areas by several doors, it is possible to get a good night's sleep even with people hanging out in the common areas.


Overall, the inconvenient location of this hostel and the older, slightly dingy rooms are worth putting up with for a great view, good breakfast, plenty of common areas, and fairly quiet rooms. You can meet new people, enjoy a decent breakfast, take in the stunning views, and get a good night's sleep for a reasonable price.

Not a nice place to stay

For a youth hostel the room was of a decent size and it was pretty clean. The duvet and pillow were filthy -- they never get washed, you simply put a cover over them. The shower was in a separate room to the toilet -- very awkward -- there was also no basin to stand in, meaning the water ran everywhere. The food wasn't great -- breakfast was very limited and the dinner was very basic. It was hard to work out what the food was as the labels were only in German, not helpful if you have dietary requirements. No deserts on offer either, I always assumed that would be a standard part of a meal. Being at the top of a hill means you have to climb lots of steps to get into the city centre -- there is the option of a tram but that isn't much use if you're part of a school group with teachers who wont let you use it. Whilst the receptionist who helped my group to practice my German was helpful, she was about the only member of staff I saw until my last day. They did nothing about the loud music being played at 3 a.m. by one group.


While the hostel is a walk halfway up the hill, it is also an easy tram ride up the hill. The hostel is clean and the rooms are very spacious. Price was a little steep, but you get a good night sleep.


This place has a cold atmosphere but it has great and clean rooms.


Good rooms and clean but very unfriendly staff.


It's too expensive.


A nice place to stay, with a good breakfast. But I had to climb up LOADS of steps before getting to the hostel. Good nonetheless.



Stuttgart - the mercedes-town. In town you find many historical-buldings like the old and the new castel.
There are two famous musicals which plays in Stuttgart: 42nd Street and the Pahntom of the Opera (tickets you can book by the hostel).
In Stuttgart you can find museums, from the Mercedes and Porsche museum, over the paint-museum (Staatsgalerie) to a tram-museum.
The hostel has a bistro with a wonderful view over the city.
