The Design Hostel in Warnemünde (GER), with its construction from intermodal containers and the colourful design, reflecting the maritime environment, has a real connection to the nearby shipyards and open sea. Its four-storey-structure, built from recycled, soundproofed overseas containers, sits on a two-storey base structure of steel, concrete and glass. The open entrance hall — with a restaurant, bar and workstations on an integrated gallery and a boulder hall — is inspiring for all guests. This special design and concept create an atmosphere, which makes every holiday a truly unique experience.
