Strasbourg is not very big, but there are plenty of options for hostels in Strasbourg. It is probably most known as the city in which the European Parliament is officially seated. However, Strasbourg is more than two thousand years old and has seen many wars and battles in its history due to its location. It has been part of the Roman Empire, France, and Germany, and it is not surprising that it has kept significant cultural heritage.
There are many other sights which are interesting for visitors. You should not miss Barrage Vauban, the Gothic Cathedral, the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie, the Église Saint-Thomas, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the Musée d'Art moderne et contemporain, the Musée archéologique, the Musée alsacien, and the Musée historique. The city has also preserved many charming medieval streets.
The hostels in Strasbourg are located in the very center or very close to the center. The center is not very far from the train and the bus stations and, as Strasbourg public transportation is great with a wide network of tram lines, you should be able to find your Strasbourg hostel very easily. You should be aware that the city is not cheap and Strasbourg hostels are no exception. If you do not book your hostel in Strasbourg in advance, you may be unpleasantly surprised by high prices.
Strasbourg is definitely not a very attractive place for nightlife -- there are not many options for going out, especially during the week. The few available places are nothing special, close quite early, and have high prices. So do not expect wild parties. The city is nice with many things to see and is well connected with buses and trains with other French and European cities. There is also a small airport with limited connections to a few European cities.

Strasbourg is a charming, old-world city in the heart of the Alsace region with unique, colorful buildings that are a feast for the soul. With delicious cuisine, an abundance of hand-crafted souveniers, an interesting variety of bridges, and the best glace experience in all of Europe (Amorino!), this city is a wonderful place to visit.
Strasbourg...Vive la France! I had my first taste of frog's legs (grenouille) here at a Chinese restaurant just outside of the train station. Very tasty. Not to mention, it was pretty darn cool to hear Chinese people speaking French. (I know, I know, I sound like a dumb American tourist). This was my first trip to Europe, so everything was absolutely incredible to me. I toured Europe with infant eyes. Vive la France!
