German Youth Hostel Association: the world's largest network of youth hostels

The idea of youth hostelling can be traced back to a teacher who needed to find accommodation for students on a school trip. Today, there are around 550 youth hostels in Germany alone. These international meeting places are open to everyone, whether individuals or groups, children, families or senior citizens, sports clubs, kindergartens or groups of friends.

A large community – Youth hostels in Germany

The youth hostel – This is an idea Made in Germany. This is the most extensive network of youth hostels in the world: the German Youth Hostel Association (DJH) comprises more than 500 attractive properties. Many of them are in absolute dream locations of which many hotels would be envious. We can be found in palaces, castles and in buildings protected as national monuments. We occupy well-exposed locations in large cities, on major rivers, on the coasts and in the Alps. Each youth hostel offers something special: this can be the high ropes course, a canoe tour or survival training or also a relaxing massage or a trip to the sauna. But most importantly: at youth hostels guests experience a real sense of community.

Out hostels are open to everyone. They are the meeting places for people from all over the world - for single persons, groups, young people, seniors, families, school classes, kindergartens, sports associations. The members of the DJH are a part of an international network: in 90 countries worldwide, in 4,000 youth hostels you can experience the unique community across all borders. The principle of openness and tolerance applies; the love of one’s fellow man and respect are a matter of course. Different temperaments and cultures encounter each other here on a daily basis, have fun together and experience things together. And all of that is at unbeatable prices.

Youth hostels in Germany have a high standard: they have modern, friendly facilities, offer good accommodations and competent service. They are also safe and clean. Wash rooms and toilets offer the largest private sphere possible. The bedrooms and the multi-bed rooms are divided by gender. Almost all youth hostels also have comfortable single rooms as well as double rooms and family rooms. The room price always includes breakfast and bed linen.
