The staff were very helpful in answering my questions about businesses in the city. I was especially helped by Patrick, Dimitri, and Katherina. Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and quickly answered my questions. Dimitri was newer to Dortmund, but I was very impressed with his dedication to looking for the correct information on the computer to satisfy my questions 100%. Katherina gave me information about the facility itself, which I did not know from previous stays: laundry room, etc.


Perfect location, in the center of Dortmund. Clean, quiet, safe and spacious rooms. Just what I needed for an overnight sleep. However if you're looking for a party hostel (in Dortumund?), do not expect any fun or hostel atmosphere. It's one of those hostels that you find in Germany or Eastern Europe, in huge buildings,w/ hundreds of doors and no personality. Charging extra for the linen was also a bit disapointing even though its a common practice in Germany. Still then, great value for money.


Dear Sirs, When I booked the bed I thought I had booked with breakfast / read at all / And that's that price included everything. When I arrived I yet paid for bedding and for that it never had before information.. The next morning for breakfast I needed to Supplement € 6. This for me was an unpleasant surprise is rove information is not standing in situ when I booked

It's one of those "Hotel-like" hostels. The whole environment is clean and the price is satisfying, but not really a place to hangout with travelers. The hostel is located only ~300m away from the main station so would be very convenient for all travelers. Is recommended to those who are only looking for a nice clean place to stay.


very big, good and efficient hostel with friendly staff near the railway station


You have to pay for everything when you get there
