If you plan to travel to Bonn this month, rates are €50 for a standard single private room with a shared bathroom while twin private will cost €30. Rooms go rather fast so if you are planning to visit Germany, reserve your accommodation as early as possible. For 2014, you will still get rooms such as the basic 4 bed mixed dorm at €24 per head. All their rates include breakfast, linen, towels, taxes as well as free wi-fi and parking.
Feedback for BaseCamp Bonn Young Hostel varies but overall, it has a good reputation. The site is located strategically although those who do not have their own private vehicles might find the location cumbersome as it will be a 5-km trek straight to the city. The staff is friendly and competent and the premises are clean. However, tall people might find the beds a bit cramped while others feel it is overpriced for the facilities offered.
