Stayed here with my daughter for one night on a driving holiday. No complaints everyone was so friendly and the place spotlessly clean. Great breakfast too. In a central location with easy parking close by. Hope to stay here again

I was actually very surprised at this hostel. I haven't ever stayed in one but I've always heard stories warning me to stay away from them because they're dirty or for younger people who stay up all night partying. This was not the case. Every employee and every guest we met while staying here at the Babelfish was very pleasant....

We stayed with a group of 4 friends in this hostel for 2 nights. We had an appartment for 4 people, for less than 30 euro per person per night including breakfast. Room was clean and big enough for the 4 of us. Breakfast was good: small fresh breads, toast, plenty of cheese and meat to choose from and also...

Just opposite to the main train station. Easy to access old town. Friendly staff . The room is a bit old but still acceptable. The guest kitchen is fair in fact because equipment is not clean . It's not a problem if you decide not to cook. Reasonable price. Recommended,

Thank you for your review and the recommendation! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hostel. We're doing our best at keeping the kitchen clean at all times, however, sometimes guests don't clean up after themselves and leave a big mess :-( We hope to see you again some day!

Stayed 3 nights in a double room. The room and bathroom was clean. Staff were friendly and check-in and check-out was easy and fast. Hostel bar area was usually quite empty but good to grab a beer or wine after a day out. Location was great as it is super near the train station and we were using the trains...

Pros: Staffs are friendly and willing to accommodate late check-in because my train arrives late in Würzburg. Quiet place, great location just a 3-minute walk from the train station. Cons: There's a slight smell somewhere near the laundry, but not a big issue. Other than that, nothing.

Great location, pretty much across from train station and close to city. Friendly staff, one was even in a costume for the festival. Good place to meet fellow travelers. Bathroom was clean and in good condition.

I stayed in Würzburg for 10 nights in Babelfish Hostel and it was great. The staff is helpful and nice, rooms clean and the kitchen equipped enough. We stayed in a 4-bed dormroom, which was quite challenging (to have new roommates every night), but the price was good and overall it was great. At the beginning, the wifi signal was...

I needed a place close to the railway station, and this fitted the bill nicely. I stayed two nights a week apart, as part of a month spent exploring Germany, mostly by train. All my other accommodation was at hotels, so I was interested to see what the extra "s" in "hostel" meant. Most of the accommodation here is in...

“Avoid rooms facing the main road, there are a lot of buses going through and they'll keep you up at night.”

“Four dorm beds costs only an extra six euro per night and you share the bathroom/shower with only the others in your room, so I thought it was totally worth it. The times when it was occupied because everyone was getting ready I just nipped into the other shared showers that were usually not occupied.”
