The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The hostel is a short walk from the Hbf and there is a supermarket directly behind the building.


Didn't reply when I told them I left something valuable. Otherwise fine. Skip Dresden.

Sky Bar is good facility


Very expensive. Not good for this money


Lounge and outdoor patio was a little small and the computer didn't work well. Breakfast was great, the rooms were very clean and location was central.


I was disappointed by the words mentioned in the booking and the action at the counter. In the booking it says ALL taxes included. And below you read that you would have to pay for a bedding tax of 1.70€ which in the end was all blah. I had to pay 5,50 for a bed- tax at the counter in addition to the daily rate. You state it differently from what you actually do in the end. That made me angry. Cheers, J.

while most of the city's action is on the one side of the train station, the hostel is on the other. So it's not the perfect location, but still very decent. Other than that it's a very solid place.


Spacious and clean hostel right next to the train/bus station. The only weird thing was the lockers. Some were broken/ didnt seem very secure.


The location of this hostel is good if you want to be close (ish) to the train station but as a solo female traveller I found it an awful location it is 25 minute walk into town/attractions and I felt extremely nervous walking back to the hostel at night where you walk past a lot of unlit parks and dodgy residential areas and flats! Staff didn't speak very good English and I didn't find them very helpful! Was clean and room was spacious! Not a very social hostel from what I could see.


Not a place to go if you're thinking about meeting people. Full of families and not aimed at backpackers traveling solo.


Nice location, 5 minutes from the central train station. Bathroom and shower was in our room which is nice. The rooms were clean. For the price it is worth the stay, but don't expect much ambiance as it's an hostel and an hotel at the same time and most of the clients are hotel clients. I would still recommend it if your looking for a place to stay.


Just one night but a good stay! Female dorm with 4 beds, two bathrooms. Staff is pretty efficient!

Nice and very clean hostel, big rooms. It is quite expensive though, no free sheets or towels, you even have to pay for city map! Free parking till there is some place to park. Location is ok, near train station and 20 minutes from city center. Atmosphere was ok, it seemed like there was a lot of mid-age Germans and families + some young people. All in all nice stay, but IMO things like towels and sheets should be for free in hostel, especially with high prices. Staff was nice and friendly.


Nice rooms with lockers (you need your own lock) and clean bathrooms. Think it's a bit steep to have to pay for linen but that's my opinion, it's not like it wasn't already advertised. Not much atmosphere if you're a backpacker looking to meet people, more of a 'school trip' kinda place. Excellent location though, right next to the train station and a nice walk into town - I'd recommend for layover but not to have fun.


A sleeping factory


This was one of greatest hostels I've ever stayed in. I was in rhe female dorm and the room was big. I liked having the toilettes inside the room and the card to access the room. The location is excellent ,400m far from the mainstation .It's perfect if you want to explore Dresden and if you need to leave early in the morning .Recommended


Paying for linen is such an outdated concept, and merely adds tunnecessarily to the bill. I rented a towel, that was of really terrible quality, and I would have dried better standing outside naked. It was really noisy outside, and way too hot! The bar was empty, leaving the place with no atmosphere.


very expensive for a normal hostel,breakfast is 7 E extra , no kitchen,parking is also extra , there were no AC in the rooms . The worst thing is the location it is opposite the railway tracks, ask fora room in the back ,or even better get a bed at kangaroo-stop.de in Dresden Neustadt


The girl on the reception gave us the wrong door card, and then told us the wrong door number so we had to go to her 3 times.


No personal Adapter!(No personal Electrical outlets!) No Locker! A little bit scared from the station to this hostel at night.
