Best Stuttgart hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Stuttgart hostel

Stuttgart is a vibrant, growing city with many students, a buzzing nightlife, and an artistic atmosphere, making it the perfect city to stay in a hostel. Travelers will find that a hostel in Stuttgart provides the same basic amenities as a hotel, but often has a more welcoming, independent feeling and offers a unique chance to meet fellow travelers in a relaxed environment. Hostels here are also usually a much cheaper option than the many business hotels located around the city.
Many hostels in Stuttgart, such as Hostel Alex 30 and Inter-Hostel, are located near the city center, meaning that they are conveniently placed for major coach and rail links, as well as the city’s subway system. There are also options like Jugendherberge Stuttgart International, which is centrally located but sits on a hilltop, which affords a more peaceful atmosphere and provides stunning views across the city.
There are several hostels in Stuttgart that are perfect for solo travelers; the city is well known for its friendly and welcoming hostel scene. Solo travelers will feel instantly at home at the A&O Stuttgart City hostel, which has a popular bar serving snacks and drinks, a game room, and a TV room that serves as a great venue to meet new friends. Other good options include Jugendherberge Stuttgart International, which has a range of small dormitory rooms, several lounges, a large dining room, a terrace, and a tour service; or Hostel Alex 30, which is popular for its shared kitchen, a barbecue patio, and a bar.
A great hostel in Stuttgart for female travelers—especially those traveling solo—is Hostel Alex 30. Besides offering the option of a female-only dormitory, the property has several twin and single rooms available. All shower cubicles in the shared bathrooms are lockable for extra safety, and the hostel also benefits from secure lockers and 24h reception.
