For the youth hostels in Germany we have the categories: classic, standard, top.
Category classic: In the base category a functional standard with shared bathrooms predominates. The category “cassic” describes youth hostels with practical facilities for basic requirements.
Category “standard”: the equipment is appropriate to current conditions. With a basic technical standard the rooms offer various possibilities for your stay. Some rooms have ensuite bathrooms.
Category “top”: here you find best conditions for your stay. The majority of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms. The hostel offers its guests a lot of space, meeting points, modern facilities and multiple options for “get together” and events.
