The hotel staff were very friendly and spoke good english! They upgraded us from the hostel to the hotel and the rooms were clean and had everything we needed.
Overall, a nice cheap place with reasonable single rooms including shower but there are a couple of disappointments for a so-called budget hostel in comparison to other similar hostels. Firstly, wifi: the wifi here is a telekom hotspot, which is quite expensive- you have to pay 4.95 for 24 hr access which continues if you're not online- this is worse than other hostels, where wifi is either free or your (cheaper) 24 h accounts for logging out. 6 euro breakfast also too expensive
This hostel was the poor cousin of the hotel across the big car park, where you had to check in. It was clean and quiet, and beds were comfortable, but there are no staff on site and it felt 'cold'. The cost of a purchased breakfast is too high for a budget hostel. The biggest factor against this hostel is it's location - three suburbs out from the city centre means you are paying lots for transport Be prepared to hire the saucepans - not normal for a hostel.
I was surprised that they had tv in the room. I enjoyed this. This hostel has come a long way! The staff went out of their way to help me out and answer questions or see to my needs. I was very impressed with this.
I stayed at the Bed'n'Budget simply because nothing else was available. There was no one else staying in the 16-bed dorm. The way the bunk beds are set-up, there is a lot of privacy and convenience (like a reading lamp and electrical socket for every bed). However, the showers are grimy and a bit strange. It is locker room style with nowhere to hang towels/clothes. This means drying off and getting dressed in the outer room with the sinks, which leads directly to the hallway.
Excellent rooms and bedding, but the atmosphere matched the area... it was dead.
This hostel was a little bit strange since it was attatched to a pretty fancy hotel. Didn't have the travellers hostel vibe that most do and there weren't too many people staying there. There were no computers to use as well. The location was pretty far from the central, with not too much to do around the hostel. The beds were very comfortable though and there was alot of space to store your stuff including lockers. Also good ventilation and air circulation. Also very nice bathrooms.
A bit hard to get to (the red tram line from Hauptbahnhof). Near a large store. We had a 2-person room w/ shared bathrooms, worked just fine. (Dorms apparently had less-private showers.) Fridge, TV, 8 power outlets in the room. Wifi for 4,95€. A nice common room w/ a Picasso motif and a table football + a kitchen in a different building (kitchen only had pots (no frying pans), stoves (no oven), water cooker and a microwave). Shared reception with a hotel, the staff was lovely and helpful.
The staff was very friendly, the room clean with an amazing view. The hostel is 1min from the tram station. Each shower is a separate room and clean as well. The whole hostel had a very nice feeling to it. Definite recommendation for anyone.
This hostel was a bit out of town so not so easy to get to. Just a basic room but fine for one or 2 nights
There's a real good breakfast buffet in the hotel next to the hostel, you can eat there for € 6 a day.
I have to say the big dorm room is surprisingly well designed and every bed has its own privacy. You won't have much privacy in the shower room but it doesn't worry me too much. They also have a nice kitchen. My concern would be the staff at the reception as they probably wouldn't treat you as nice as the actual "hotel" guests. I guess as far as they are concerned all backpackers are second class.
