Danhostels are perfect for family holidays in Denmark

Danhostel Ribe has a great atmosphere for families and is just perfect for family accommodation.
Our family rooms are all with shower/toilet and our family friendly hostel offers plenty of room for kids to play and to find new playmates.
A lot of child friendly activities are offered both in Ribe and in the Wadden Sea National Park.

To keep your holiday costs down it is possible to bring your own bed linen and furthermore the hostel has a smaller kitchen for our guests to use – meaning you do not have to dine out all the time. At the same time we will recommend you to taste our breakfast buffet – we are sure you will not regret it.

Children under 2 stay free in parents’ bed , but if you prefer to rent a cot, this is also possible.
Children 2-12 years accompanied by their parents get breakfast at half price.
