Located amid serene green countryside, the Jugendherberge Possenhofen stands as a modern architectural hostel providing free WiFi to its guests. It's situated just a 3-minute walk away from the Starnberger Lake and a 20-minute drive from Andechs Abbey, making it a favourable choice for nature enthusiasts. The rooms come with extra long beds and a wash basin, however, the bathrooms and showers are shared, located in the hallway. The guests have highly appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms and the sizable bathrooms. Beginning their day with a fresh breakfast buffet, guests have the option of enjoying their meal in the breakfast room or on the terrace during good weather. The proximity to the lake is continually praised as it not only offers a picturesque view but also easy access to the Paradies bathing area, ideal for relaxation.
The surrounding locale is great for individuals keen on hiking, cycling, and water sports, as well as families, as mentioned by a guest who visited with their daughter and grandchildren, expressing positive surprise at the child-friendly environment. The Possenhofen Train Station is conveniently an 8-minute walk away, offering direct connections to Munich Main Station which is appreciated for the value for money. However, some guests have mentioned the WiFi connectivity to be subpar, and the mobile network coverage to be scanty in the area. Despite these minor drawbacks, the overwhelming sentiment in the reviews praises the exceptional, friendly and accommodating staff, the practicality and basic but good room design, and the quality of food, especially the breakfast. The hostel's serene, relaxing ambiance along with its excellent location makes it a repeated choice for many visitors. Some guests felt that the price per night was a tad high for a youth hostel, but the beautiful location and courteous staff seemed to justify the cost for many.
