A heuhotel (German for "hay hotel") is a form of public lodging in which guests pay for sleeping accommodations in bedding made of hay, typically in shared quarters.[1][2]

The style of lodging first became popular in the middle ages, and had a resurgence in modern form in Germany in 2009. As of then the typical price was 8 euros per night per guest.[1]
