Vintage caravans, Night Trains, American Airstreams, Volkswagen transporters and other oddities in Bonn!

Located inside a former storage facility in Bonn, GermanyBaseCamp Young Hostel is the only indoor vintage faux camping ground in the galaxy, accommodating a total of 120 beds across 13 vintage caravans, four American Airstreams, two night trains, two Volkswagen transporters, a Trabant, a ski gondola and other oddities.

BaseCamp Bonn's compact train carriage rooms are equipped with bunk beds and a washbasin. Carriage rooms, original American Airstreams and mobile homes all have access to shared bathroom facilities.

Who hasn't always wanted to spend a night in a retro caravan designed by an experienced film set designer? The caravans were outfitted by acclaimed German television and film set designer Marion Seul. Each of them has a different theme, from flower power to space shuttle, and together they incorporate furnished front lawns, curious trinkets and historic props. Perfectly suited for travellers, backpackers and groups that have a taste for adventure.

Beside the individually themed caravans you can choose your favourite also from a Trabant, VW Bullis, Airstreams or if those are not to your taste, how about a Swiss ski gondola instead?

Guests can also choose to stay in a real night sleeper. The ultimate opportunity for a sleeping experience like on the Trans-Siberian Railway, but without any annoying rattling and shaking. This makes it all the better to dream of many a destination station at night. Please board the train and stand back from the doors, it will be departing shortly! The two trains have 28 individual sleeping compartments and can accommodate up to 70 people.

BaseCamp Young Hostel is a place so unique that it's difficult to put into words, you just need to see it for yourself!
