EastSeven Berlin Hostel
Located in trendy Prenzlauer Berg, a 20-minute walk from Alexanderplatz. Very highly rated hostel, close to Senefelderplatz underground station, from where you can get a U2 U-Bahn straight to the stadium.

Eastener Hostel
A 10-minute walk to Friedrichstrasse station (from where trains run direct to the stadium) and 25 minutes on foot to the Brandenburg Gate. A small hostel for the independent traveller. Not, they stress, a party hostel!

Circus Hostel
Centrally located, almost right next door to the Rosenthaler Platz underground station, which puts you on the network for travel all around Berlin. Rated 'Superb' on Hostelworld. Also just across a park from FC Magnet Bar, a good bar for watching football, as mentioned on my Berlin City page.


Station - Hostel for Backpackers
It's been many years since I was a backpacker staying in hostels, so I can't vouch for this place personally. But it certainly looks convenient, being only 150 yards from the main station (and therefore also from the cathedral and city cente).

Die Wohngemeinschaft
The name is German for 'The flat-share' or 'Communal living'. It's 19 minutes on public transport or a 30-minute walk to/from the main station. A 20-minute direct tram ride to the stadium. Rated 'Superb' on Hostelworld. Has its own cafe/bar.

a&o Köln Hauptbahnhof
Less than 5 minutes on foot to the main station. A former hotel, acquired by a&o and remodelled as a hostel / budget hotel in 2016. 24-hr reception and own bar.


DJH Jugendgästehaus Adolph Kolping
As I said above, it's been many years since I was a backpacker staying in hostels, so I can't say I've stayed here myself, but this DJH (German Youth Hostel Association) place is well situated, being just 800m from the main station, right next to one of the big squares in the pedestrianised city centre.

a&o Dortmund Hauptbahnhof
Budget hotel rooms and beds in dorms on offer. Situated less than 200m from the main entrance to the main station (and thus also only 300m from the FlixBus coach station). 24-hour reception. Free Wi-Fi.

The Bunk Hostel
Located in Essen, but right by the main station, so you can be at Dortmund main station in 25 minutes. New, modern hostel. Rated 'Fabulous' on Hostelworld. Free Wi-Fi.

An inexpensive hostel for those doing the Euros backpacker-style. A 15-minute walk from the bars of the old town.

City Youth Hostel Düsseldorf
Located on the far side of the Rhine from the city centre. 18 minutes by public transport or a 30-minute walk to the old town.From single rooms to dormitories.

a&o Dortmund Hauptbahnhof
Also out of town. This time in Dortmund. Budget hotel rooms and beds in dorms on offer. Situated less than 200m from Dortmund main entrance to the main station, with trains to Gelsenkirchen that take under 30 minutes. 24-hour reception. Free Wi-Fi.


Backpackers St. Pauli
The last time I was in Hamburg and potentially in the market for a hostel bed, my mates and I were so skint that we instead hopped on a train with our Interrail passes (it was that long ago!) and pulled out the seats of an old 6-seat compartment to make beds for ourselves there. For those in seach of a hostel during the Euros, however, this place looks a fair option. It's 25 minutes by bus from the main station in the St. Pauli district of Hamburg. It offers dormitory accommodation and has a bar.

Arena Hostel

Euro Youth Hostel
2 minutes from the main station. Rated 'Superb' on Hostelworld. Lonely Planet says: "Housed in one of the few buildings around the Hauptbahnhof to survive WWII, this atmospheric hostel-hotel oozes history with every dangling chandelier and creaky staircase".

Wombat's City Hotel Munich Hauptbahnhof
On the same street as the hostel above, and a few metres even closer to the main station. Rated 'Fabulous' on Hostelworld by over 27k reviews. Voted most popular hostel in Munich in 2017.

Potentially cheaper group-stage bases
For the group stage, it may work out cheaper to base yourself in a central spot away from any of the host cities. I suggest looking at the Würzburg area for Group A, at Hannover and environs for Group B, Group D and Group F, and at places around Mannheim for Group C and Group E.
