Youth hostels new projects

Youth hostels are constantly changing. To meet the needs of our customers, existing houses are renovated and maintained regularly. On other sites, new and modern hostels are constructed in cooperation with local and national partners to engage the request of our customers.


The capital's youth hostel has been upgraded

The youth hostel in Pfaffenthal is proud to offer further comfortable family rooms.

Three modern family-friendly rooms, each with five beds, ensuite bathrooms and plenty of storage space have been built on the ground floor of the youth hostel. Unfortunately, due to the sanitary crisis, the rooms couldn’t be finished in due time. Director Peter Hengel is very proud to inaugurate the new rooms and officially open them for bookings. ‘For years the demand for family rooms in the capital city has been rising, therefore, we decided to expand our capacity in order to become even more family-friendly."

Thanks to the support of the Ministries of Tourism and of Education, Children and Youth, as well as the City of Luxembourg, and due to the good cooperation with Theisen Architects, the youth hostel can welcome now even more families. A total of 249 beds divided into 52 rooms are now available to our guests.



Renovations in Hollenfels

Situated right next to the impressive remnants of a castle, the youth hostel in Hollenfels has continuously occupied the local manor house since 1949. Extensive renovation plans are scheduled for the near future in to modernise the infrastructure.


New youth hostel in Ettelbrück

Just over 70 years after the first youth hostel opened in Ettelbrück, the town in the north of Luxembourg is about to get a new hostel. The decision was approved by the majority of the local council. Due to the town's fabulous connection within the country's public transport network, the home town of Carlo Hemmer (one of the pioneers of Luxembourg's hostelling movement) is the perfect starting point to explore our country.
