I appreciated the warm atmosphere, the superb location in the middle of a park at walking distance (you may prefer the frequent bus) from the city center and the railway station and an abundant breakfast. I didn't experience any inconviences such as e.g. excessive noise one sometimes sees at old buildings. More power contact points would be helpfull in today's...

This is a great place for families. Tons of room inside and out. They offer meals and even have a piano. Very cool old building-- not modern, but clean and well taken care of. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Not super close to downtown and the station, but not super fast either (10-15 min walk)

The staff were nice although not there between ten and four which is a bit awkward if you have luggage. Bus stop to the falls just...

Youth hostels are in general a good cheap stay for the night from my personal experience, but this one was different from the others I've stayed at. The building was very beautiful. Somewhere between a church and a castle. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good. All in all, if you need a good place to...

I stayed for one night. It was a long walk (up hill) to the hostel. I arrived on Sunday evening where the information centre had closed and receptionist in another hotel said it's not too far to walk. Alternatively, you can take the bus from the train station. The hostel is clean and good value for expensive country like Switzerland....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
According to the song by Dieter Wiesmann Schaffhausen is just a small town. But what a town! Between Munot, Rhine Falls, Randen and Klettgau lies a medieval little place with an irresistible attraction. And, ten minutes away, a youth hostel in a small castle. At one time the meeting point for writers and painters, today it is open to all connoisseurs of the art of living. ... more   less
