The Jellyfish Hostel is very centrally located 2 min from New Market and close to main station (5 min by tram, 10 min by foot) in the old town of Rostock.
It is situated in a beautiful listed building which is more than hundred years old. The house has been carefully restored after the reunification without destroying its unique character. Three years ago it has been improved for opening the Jellyfish Hostel. Now you find modern bathrooms on each floor, an impressive common room for meeting people and a kitchen for preparing your own breakfast or snack and keep your drinks cool.
The reception is open in summer from 8.00am to 11.00pm and in winter from 8.00 to 10.00pm (a later checkin can maybe be arranged). The new young team consists of travellers themselves, so they will be receptive to listening to all of the problems a guest can have and will probably find a solution.
The Jellyfish Hostel offers a large variety of different room types: There are beds in spacious dormitories with 8 beds, cosy 4 beds and even 'luxury' 4 bed dormitories with ensuite facilities and single beds (perfect also for families!). Privates are available as well, you can choose between single rooms, double rooms and doubles with ensuite facilities.
To stay well informed and connected guests can have free access to the internet either with a PC or by wifi.
If you step out of the hostel you can see the medievil 'Steintor' and the gorgeous 'Stndehaus'. The main tram stops 'Steintor' and 'Neuer Markt' are round the corner to reach everything easily, also the beautiful beach in Warnemnde (20 min). The shopping street 'Krpeliner Strae' is starting directly at the New Market. If you turn left it is just a short walk to the harbour. The Jellyfish Hostel is the ideal starting point to explore Rostock and the perfect place to relax afterwords!
