    Still at the top of my list!

    First thing to expect at the hostel is to be welcomed with a tour of the facilities and house rules. The hostel left me a very good impression of the German standard. They wipe and vacuum every single inch of the room and facilities daily, especially the restroom. Thumbs up for the Housekeepers! And forget not Ivy, our very own Hostel Canine Ambassador!

    Keine gute Organisation

    Eigentlich wollten wir nach unserer Ankunft direkt los und nur unsere Sachen abstellen. Der Mitarbeiter vor Ort konnte aber den Schlüssel nicht finden. Nachdem wir dann alle Schlüssel für ihn ausprobiert haben, hat er bei seiner Kollegin angerufen. Die hatte natürlich, warum auch immer, den Schlüssel für unser Zimmer in der Tasche und war einkaufen... Das hat unnötig viel Zeit gekostet und war sehr ärgerlich. Zudem sollte man beachten, dass dort auch Haustiere frei rum laufen bzw. erlaubt sind. Auch wurde mit großem Unverständnis und in vorwurfsvoller Art und Weise darauf reagiert, dass wir Nichtraucher sind. Anscheinend wollte man lieber Raucher dort haben.

    Very kind staff

    I really enjoyed my stay in Hostel Aachen thanks to exceptionally kind staff. The lady at the reception was extremely friendly and showed me on map where to go and gave me good tips on what to do in Aachen. One employee even shared his breakfast with me. Not all of the people working there speak English but I managed to communicate with them quite ok. The building is very basic but bed was comfortable. My room smelled a bit of mold and cigarette smoke probably coming through the air conditioning. I am quite sensitive and allergic but it didn't bother me so much that I would have asked to change rooms. All in all a very nice hostel.
