House rules

The house rules are part of the present terms and conditions. In case of violations of the house rules, the Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband is entitled to terminate the accommodation contract without notice.


Whoever causes damage to the building, inventory or elevators is liable for it within the framework of the legal regulations (in particular also accompanying persons and organizers).

Upon departure of groups, an inspection of the rooms will be carried out by the house staff. Compensation for any damage, in particular also for lost keys, will be charged. The youth hostel is only liable for damages caused to the guest if the person causing the damage is house staff and has acted with gross negligence.
