Black Forest Hostel Reviews


on top there is:

luggage deposit
help with room and flat searching
washing machine / dryer
book exchange
several music instruments
table tennis
fulfiled conditions for handicapped persons
view to a vineyard
next to a rolling stream
several hiking trails
relaxing and kindly atmosphere

a paradise for travellers. enough space to talk and exchange experience. the big selfcatering kitchen inspires almost every day to cook and share meals together. a good spot very close downtown, 20 km away from france, 60 km away from switzerland and in the middle of the black forest.
