There are limited options for hostels in Regensburg -- some may be more conveniently located while otehrs are better for big groups. If you don't find a place in any of the hostels in Regensburg, there is a multitude of hotels, but some might be quite expensive.
There are a lot of things to see in Regensburg, for example the Castle, which is still inhabited by the Thurn und Taxis family; there is also a Historical Museum. If you are not into museums that much, just take a walk through the narrow streets in the old city, for example, from the Cathedral to the Stone Bridge, to get an impression of the architecture.
When you are tired of culture, relax in one of the street cafés or beer gardens, brewery restaurants, or fancy bars. You will find a lot of beer gardens near the Danube (two of them very close to the Stone Bridge), a lot of good places to eat around the Arnulfsplatz and north of it, and a lot of clubs and bars in the center region, between Bismarckplatz and Untere/Obere Bachgasse.
