Small Cleves Youth Hostel offers plenty of space for large groups: a total of 3 rehearsal and two common rooms for groups of up to 54 people are available, all with a view of the country. An external rehearsal option, a 280 m2 gym, is within walking distance. This means that complex music projects can easily be carried out.

Music groups are housed in the hostel's cosy multi-bed rooms – all with their own shower and toilet. During the breaks, short walks through the beautiful countryside or strolls through Cleves town centre will give guests new energy and inspiration – after all, the environment at the hostel makes a big contribution towards successful rehearsals. Do you want to strengthen the cohesion of the group? The hostel's own adventure obstacle courses will teach choir and orchestra members that they can only achieve their goal if they work as a team.

Do you have special wishes? Talk to the service team before you arrive so you can fix your rehearsal times, leisure activities and mealtimes in line with the rehearsal schedule in advance and enjoy a relaxing stay.

The easy-going atmosphere of the hostel and its quiet location in the Lower Rhine region is ideal for music groups: they can really sing at full voice there if they want. In addition, Kleve Youth Hostel is one of 15 Music Hostels in the Rhineland and is, therefore, well prepared to satisfy the special needs of choirs and music groups.


  • Our reception and opening times can be requested at the time of booking or on arrival.
  • The youth hostel team would be happy to help you plan your stay.


The right food makes an important contribution to a generally successful rehearsal experience. Our kitchen team has responded to this challenge with a varied range of meals: all the food that's served is healthy, light and always tasty.

You should discuss with us any special dietary requirements when planning your stay so that your wishes can be incorporated into your rehearsal schedule. We are flexible. That's why our kitchen team will also try to comply with any vegetarian or religious dietary requirements as far as possible.
