This hostel was in a really fun area of Dresden, with heaps of interesting places to eat and drink nearby. The bar downstairs was a nice place to spend some time, and the walk to the old town wasn't too bad. We loved our stay here!
Great location, by loads of bars and restaurants in the Neustadt - new, cool, student area of the city. A bit far from the tourist attractions in the Altstadt, but there are trams and buses, so it's fine. The breakfast is very expensive and probably not worth the money. Other than that it has everything you need - wifi, a bar, kitchens, nice rooms and very easy to meet people!
Great location in Dresden, right in the main student area of the city where a lot of bars and restaurants are based. The common area and kitchen were very good and quite homely but the hostel lacked atmosphere and was quite boring. Rooms and beds clean and spacious.
The hostel was really good. The facilities were very good and clean. It is located at the new part of Dresden and, thus, close to bars, but a bit far from the main tourist attractions. The breakfast is not worth its price.

I've been in Nepal in 2011 and the wi-fi was free in every guesthouse. Now it's 2014, you should really upgrade.
Great hostel, good vibe, easy to meet people! Free BBQ and beer on Fridays! A little unorganised and the staff does not seem to care much.
So right when I was staying there they changed their system from unlimited wifi to 30 minutes of free wifi. This is killer for those of us that don't have phones and the only way to stay connected is to use wifi while traveling. That is probably the biggest downfall of this place. Otherwise it was my 2nd favorite hostel on my whole trip throughout Germany and it is amazingly located for a very affordable price. Seriously, if you visit Dresden you can't get much better than this place.
Excellent hostel! Really enjoyed my time there. Good kitchen and common room, met lots of great people. Fantastic part of town too, great bars.
The location is fabulous, the ambiance is lovely with walls painted in green swirls. The beds are comfortable, the showers are great. This would have been a perfect hostel if I had not gotten bitten by bedbugs. I will say that the staff took it very seriously, evacuated our entire room and went to work on it immediately. I think that sort of reaction makes me gain trust in it rather than loose trust. I would stay here again.
Had a great time here and loved this hostels location. Would recommend and have recommended always!
Ienjoyed my stay at Mondpalast. There was key code entry to get on your floor and lockers inthe room. Bathrooms and rooms were clean. Well stocked self-catering kitchen. Only issue was that there were no safety rails on top of bunk beds. Would stay there again.
Had a fantastic stay here and would again if in the area. It was an easy walk to the old town, supermarkets and cheap eateries, plus the onsite kitchen and lounge was a great way to chill out (especially as a non smoker). Plenty of toilets and showers and bright and clean rooms.
It was a good hostel. It's got everything you need. It's a good place to say, would recommend. The breakfast costs too much though, for what it is. The staff are bland. It's impersonal I guess compared with other places, but it has what you want.
A bit noisey at night if your room opens directly above the street. Nice hostel vibe!
Location not ideal, a large hostel. Would not recommend for backpackers like myself. Other than that, nice hostel. Clean, good facilities.
The hostel was really clean, the environment very welcoming. If you like going out at night, this is the perfect place, in the middle of the nightlife area of Dresden. There are also good connections to the rest of the town and public transportation, although if you have lots of heavy luggage, you might want to take a taxi from/to the station, since the walk from the tran station is about 600 meters. The staff is very friendly and everyone else staying there was cool, too :)
bit of a walk into the city but it was a nice walk to get there. lots of little shops, bars and cafes around the hostel and the kitchen was good and clean. the rooms were spacious and clean, good value for money !

Great hostel. Nice staff, nice kitchen, nice lounge, nice showers and a good cafe downstairs.
The area is perfect - close to Neustadt train station, full of nice bars and unexpensive restaurants, nice atmosphere, many nightlife options, 20min walk to the Old Town. Toilets were a bit filthy and the kitchen could be cleaner too but I guess it depends on other guests too (wash your dishes!!!). Anyway I had no problems.
