Poor little Kreuzlingen -- it's outshined by its cross-border neighbour Konstanz in just about any respect. This is also why most people visit -- to grab a room at a Kreuzlingen hostel and then walk the few steps to Konstanz, which in high season sees a demand in accommodation that makes hoteliers happy and travelers poor.

Kreuzlingen has a fairly nice seaside location, a semi-spectacular planetarium, and an ice rink (in winter), which pretty much sums up its attractions. This lack of tourist attention could theoretically provide for a quiet and relaxed stay away from the hustle and bustle, but sadly Kreuzlingen's rather uncomfortable atmosphere forbids enjoyment for most people. That is for one due to the remarkably unattractive inner city (there are cute parts scattered around though if you manage to find them) and also to a hostile attitude of a vast part of the population toward foreigners. This part of Switzerland is in strong support of the political far right and host to one of the largest centers for asylum seekers in Switzerland -- an "excellent combination" as you will find out when wandering around. Despite all, it is still worth going at least for a half-day trip from Germany to stock up on some Swiss chocolate or even visit the chocolate factory nearby.

When it comes to Kreuzlingen hostels, the choices are extremely limited -- but you will be in a calm, government-run hostel that is likely to have many school groups and families in it. You will also be nicely located on a hill overlooking the lake, which has been there for over a hundred years and is reasonably close to Konstanz. There has been some coming and going of small Kreuzlingen hostels or hostels as side businesses but there aren't many that have managed to stay.
