Just a good hostel. If you find yourself in Dresden, it's a good place to be. Was there at a quiet time, so wasn't very lively. But, it was nice. Really great kitchen and the hammocks are fun. Atmosphere is really well done.


The staff was always really friendly and enthusiastic, despite being low season (Early November). They gave me good recommendations on what to do. Bed was comfortable and no noise was coming from the street at night. The common room is quite cool and welcoming for meeting new people. Reaching the hostel from Dresden-Neustadt station is pretty easy and it takes around 5 minutes. Even though it's not close to the Old Town (20 min. walk), it has a convenient location for the bar and club area.


Wifi was not working very well even though I was at the lounge, supposedly the location with strongest signal. Location was not bad, walking distance to the area with tonnes of bars and clubs. A little far to walk to the old town.


I stayed there during November so it was a little quiet, but still a nice place with friendly staff. The carpets in the bedrooms are kinda gross!


Kangaroo have one of the best common area I have seen at a hostel. Great lockers as well. Would definetely recommend.


Very nice hostel, we really enjoyed the stay! The stuff was very friendly! Check the pictures, it looks even better :)

Great value! The kitchen/living room area had a good vibe, very inviting. Met a bunch of cool people there, even though I only stayed for one night.


A great hostel with a fun atmosphere, great staff and a good location. Definitely would recommend this hostel to anyone.


The rooms, kitchen and common room was great. What needs improving is the showers. They are really bad, shared communal showers with lack of privacy and hooks to hang your clothes. Plus be aware they charge 2 euros for linen. The wifi is kinda weird. They provide unique passwords which always seem to log me out every hour or so.


Excellent location in Neustadt, with helpful staff showing us where to go out on the first night. Great common room/ kitchen to relax and socialise. WiFi works everywhere, but has a strange system of limited hours.


I thought the hostel was nice, a friend and I needed a place to stay for two nights and it was in a great location, very clean and had everything we would need. The best part was the staff were very lovely and very helpful. I would recommend giving directions from the main Hbh station as this is where we got a bit lost though.


Overpriced for what you get, even have to pay 2 euros for the linnen. The hostels seems like a company controlling everything, the shower was the worst part, turning off every 20 seconds.


Great place about 2 minutes away from neustadt station. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Rooms were basic and getting ready maybe for a touch up but comfortable with good amount of room and also had decent sized lockers (could fit big backpack in). Showers and toliets were ok. Big kitchen and hang out space. Walking distance to everything (15-20 minutes to old town)


This place was so much more than we expected! Such a great surprise! Really close to the train station which is awesome. Staff was awesome and very inviting. Actually showed us to our room! Full kitchen, great lounge, great atmosphere. Even emailed to say that a plug was found in our room! Overall just a great experience! Loves our time in Dresden.


Aside from the animal themes, it's a pretty run of the mill hostel. Nothing too spectacular but its gets the job done. Close to the train station and restaurants but far from the old town. Would recommend.


Great place to relax and enjoy the city/surrounding areas! Staff was very helpful and the location was great!


Outstanding staff!


스탭분들이 친절하고 위치도 좋고 전체적으로 정말 좋았어요^^


Small, friendly hostel on a quiet street steps from the nightlife of New Town and a pleasant walk to the sites of Old Town. Great location. Carpets etc a bit tired but everything serviceable. Power points and wardrobe sized lockers. Noisy though. Great for party people, less so for anyone wanting a good night's sleep
