The front desk staff were awesome. The hostel has a really cool layout. The beds each had a little light and electrical outlet which is great. My mattress wasn't the comfiest, but not too bad. Good price. I would recommend this hostel.

Enjoyed every moment. Very nice and comfy. The breakfast was really great, there were great rooms and beds (named with lots of humor). Bathroom and shower were clean. And most of all - the staff was super nice and really helpful

Very welcoming staff, nicely designed room! We met nice international crowd over breakfast at the extra long table in the lounge. Also received good tips on navigating the restaurant scene. Great location for hiking to the castle via kavalrienberg mountain.

Great hostel. Very clean and Interior is really nicely done. You can also hire bikes from them which is very handy for only 7 euros for the day. The hostel is good value for money and has a chilled Vibe. The staff are very lovely and will go the extra mile for you. Would recommend to anyone staying :)

I didn't make a reservation before deciding I would visit Füssen. I intended to stay there for four night, but they had just one bed free for one night. The owner of the place said he would help me and he did. He had a reserve bed which I used. I slept in that bed for two nights and there... More

The smell of the room was so horrible someone had tried to mask it with an orange deodorizer, who h was even worse. There is no kitchen, you can't even get hot water and the pitiful common area is seldom open. The staff are rude and seldom there. The bathrooms are tiny , the beds old and worn and the... More

Your review is apparently intended for another hostel: we underwent a complete renovation in early 2016. If you would have stayed in our hostel you would have noticed that we have new, custom built beds, the fastest available Wifi in Germany (Cable 1) and that we have a pretty awesome lounge, Hot water included. Next time you stay in Füssen,... More

Wonderful hostel! The man that greeted us (business owner I believe) was so friendly and helpful. Once everything was arranged he was also more than happy to use his time to recommend where we should go to get the best views of the popular Neuschwanstein castle. He helped carrying my bag up the stairs which is always a plus. The... More

Had a short stay at Old Kings and really enjoyed it. Stephan and Anna were wonderful and were more than willing to make my stay memorable. The beds were really comfortable, best I'd slept in my whole trip! The bathrooms are shared (this is a hostel) but boys and girls are separate. Free Wi-Fi and a great breakfast (for a... More

A cozy, friendly atmosphere with wonderful hosts. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Fussen has many wonderful places to explore; take advantage of the bikes for rent. Exceptionally comfortable beds in beautifully decorated rooms. The dorms are roomy and well-lit with ample space to stow your belongings. There are several private rooms available as well.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old Kings design hostel is located within Fuessen's medieval city walls and is only a 7 minute walk from the train station. Occupying a historic townhouse, Old Kings is where hip meets history: Relax in our King's Loft or Gryffindore dorms or enjoy the canopy bed in our "King of Dreams" double room. Meet other travellers over a drink at the communal table in our lounge or borrow a book from our library. And don't forget to grab one of our bikes to explore the crystal clear lakes, mountains and castle ruins that surround us. There is much more to Fuessen than just Neuschwanstein - the surrounding nature is a hiker's and biker's paradise with beautiful Bavarian villages and amazing mountain climbs almost starting at our door steps. And the baroque "Wieskirche", a Unesco World heritage site, is just around the corner. ... more   less
