We booked online using the German booking form but the youth hostel promptly answered email questions and advised us how to complete the form in English. We booked a small dorm with bathroom for private use and included breakfast. The booking was confirmed by email and we were also informed that our motorbike could be parked in the courtyard and the price for joining the German Youth Hostel was added - 3 euros. On arrival, we parked and checked in at reception. The receptionist spoke perfect English and welcomed us and gave us our room key. It was a brilliant experience; the sun was shining brightly and we bought a couple of beers from reception and took them to one of the seating areas outside. Views of the woodland was amazing. Bedding was provided and you made up your own beds and had to remove the pillowcase and duvet cover on the day of check out and sweep the room. The room (205) had beds and table and chairs in the main room and bunk beds in a separate room. The bathroom was clean and functional. We ordered an evening meal for 6 euros each and enjoyed starter, chicken, veg and potatoes for main and fruit salad for dessert. The dining room was spotless and food very tasty and amazing value, as was the price for the one night stay. We walked to the pub that was signposted just near the entrance to Colditz but it was closed on Tues and Wednesday so we walked into the town square which took only 5 minutes. After returning we bought small bottles of wine from reception (soft drinks were also available) and enjoyed them outside. You will need your own toiletries. We had a quiet and comfortable nights sleep before stripping the beds and sweeping the room. A brilliant and unique place to stay!
