The German Youth Hostel Association is an organisation that is based on membership. To stay in a German Hostel, you need to be a member of a Youth Hostel Association.

If you do not live in Germany, you can become a member of the Youth Hostel Association in your home country. To apply for membership, please contact the Youth Hostel Association in your country. You can find all the national Youth Hostel Associations in the world on hihostels.com under "Hostelling International" (www.hihostels.com).

An international guest who does not hold a membership card can purchase an International Guest Card in place of membership. He is required to buy a Welcome Stamp for each night of his stay at the cost of 3,50 €. When he or she has collected 6 Welcome Stamps, the Guest Card becomes valid in all Hostels worldwide or entitles the holder to reduced rates for his stay.

Location Information

Passau Youth Hostel is located in the 500-year-old Oberhaus fortress above the place where the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers flow together.
Housed in the castle's former tavern and blacksmith's shop, it not only provides amazing panoramic views of the two-thousand-year-old city but is also ideal for exploring past eras, whether dark or dazzling.
Excursions can be made to the Bavarian Forest, Austria and the Czech Republic in the vicinity. Passau's unique location on three rivers also predestines it for boat rides and long bicycle tours in the city environs.
