I never needed to use any hotels here, I used the hospitality of Knutt that hosted me (and others) with a promise of great breakfast in the morning.
Please notice for the Weissbier, it is not standard in Germany to have it for breakfast, but, when you get out of bed late, you can afford that :)
The local Holiday Inn has also its nickname "the little twins". This name today sounds a bit touchy but anyhow, I didn't needed to use hotel in Bochum but if I had to, maybe that would be the place. It is located just in the centre of the city.
The first independent hostel of the Ruhrpott!!!
It's got 15 hostel beds and also 15 hotel beds, so there's something for everybody's money bag. And it's so cute too!
Staying there, you can relax in a very nice café with a TV (actually you can also go there as a non-resident). And right opposite the hostel/hotel is the German Mining Museum (Deutsches Bergbaumuseum) with its big green mining tower, if that's what you call it... anyways, you can go underground into an adit there. Besides other interesting things. Pretty stones, fossils... that's about all I remember from when I was there at age 8 or something...
But wasn't I trying to give you information about the hostel???Right...
Hostel beds go from 30 DM (5-bed-room) to 70 DM (single)Hotel rooms are from 98 DM (single) to 135 DM (double)
Well, it's the first independent backpackers hostel ever in the Ruhrpott region, but it also includes a hotel section and not only is that a 'normal' hotel, it's a design hotel! The rooms look really nice, personal and homely.Another big advantage (at least for city-slickers) is the hostel's location in one city of many in easy reach. See my Germany page for more info!
