The hostel is located 5 minutes from the railway station, and 10 minutes from the center of Bremen on foot. I have to admit I expected more from the accommodation, it's quite basic. Our room had 3 beds, a stool, and a little mirror, and that was it. But if you need a place to sleep, it's adequate.

Thank you for staying with us. The GastHaus is a backpacker hostel and our main customers are people who like to share dormitory rooms for reasonable prices and contact with other travellers. We have a clean and well equipped kitchen which all guests can use. The showers are central and communal (male and female separate). We have a large lounge with TV and internet access.


The rooms dont have key so you have to put everything in the lockers. There is not enough heating, so I found very cold, specially in the showers and the halls that you have to use to go to bathrooms and showers. The kitchen have good equipment so it´s good for cooking.


Really close to the central train station. Lovely big rooms. Separate shower stalls with doors with locks. And a little stool and hooks to leave your stuff while you take a shower. Hot water always available. Just note the fact that "24 Hour Security" does NOT mean that the reception is open 24 hours, because it is not. There's no one there between 1 am and 8 am and you get a key for front door. You have to leave deposit, so beware if you're back after 1 am and have to leave before 8 am.

The showers had no division in between, making it very unconfortable to take a shower at the same time. The staff from Saturday morning was very impolite with us, not being helpfull at all. Also we had to pay additionally for bed sheets and other stuff (we didn't use).

Thank you for your comments. We've solved the shower problem. Thanks for letting us know. Linen is available for Euro 3.00 per person, own sleeping bag is welcome. Sincerely, Hostel Management


Very good Location, near city center. Staff was very helpful. They are speaking very well in English. Rooms very clean. Breakfast was good, simple like everywhere :) Need pay 2euro more for a bedding sets, very strange.. Car park, yes they have it for free, but always no space there.
