6/10 Good

After staying at TPH in Strasbourg, I thought this would be a good choice. I was wrong. Pros: 10/15 min walk to train station, clean, not far from main areas. Cons: Small bar and mingling area, secuirty lights are on ALL NIGHT LONG- I got NO sleep because of this. Security lights are meant to come on when the other lights dont work, not stay on all the time. The rooms were HOT as balls. AC doesnt work, and the window opens about 2 inches. Bathroom is for hamsters- no space whatsoever and no outlet to use hair products. Also no mirror in the outer portion of the room so you cant even get ready if someone else is in the bathroom. For the amount of $ I spent on a private room, I wasn't thrilled.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this place.The facilities were good, very clean, and close to the main toursitic attractions / city centre. Also a lively bar in the establishment where you can easily meet other people. This was my first time travelling alone, so I was naturally quite apprehensive at first but those worries were quickly set aside as this is an outstanding place to meet people from various cultures and languages, so that I quickly met friends there and arranged excursions/ nights out with them. The staff were also faultless, very good-vibes from all, and I appreciated that they tolerated my rubbish French skills, and contined to speak to me in French, as I asked them to avoid speaking to me in English as much as possible as I wanted to improve my French skills. :) I'm not normally one for leaving reviews, but felt the need to do so on this occasion. Thank you so much to all the wonderful staff here. My only negative would be that after being in this incredible place, and city, my holiday has peaked to soon and all the other places I am visiting simply cannot compare! :)

Staff was amazing, only problem was that I tried to check in early, when I arrived, to keep my bottom bed, but the morning staff didn’t let me, to get back there later to find out they gave my bottom bed to another girl. Good thing the evening staff was super amazing and they fixed my problem. Other than that, everything else was perfect 💜

Très bonne auberge de jeunesse
Les dortoirs pour 4 femmes sont supers. Des rideaux aux banettes avec étagères et petit placard intégré , des cubes à l’intérieur de la chambre pour le reste des affaires, une salle de bain avec toilettes dans la chambre. Propreté impeccable. Petit bémol aux oreillers trop trop mous
