Danhostel Ribe

Top choice hostel in Ribe
Image by Booking.com

Knowledgeable staff, sparkling rooms (all with bathroom) and impressive facilities make this a top option for both backpackers and families. It rents bikes and is a stone’s throw from Ribe’s historic centre; equally impressive is its commitment to the environment, from the Good Origin coffee in its vending machines to its promotion of sustainable travel in the Wadden Sea region.

Breakfast costs 75kr; linen hire is 70kr.
