The hostel was probably built in 1960. Fhter that, the furniture, beds, pillows, stairs and sanitair have never been checked to Renee something. The smell in the common room was smokey and the atmosphere was depressing. I Would pay 5 euro for this hostel, not more. Paint Some walls, Renew something..or a lot. I Would not recommend this hostel to anyone.

The hotel is a well located site, making it easy to reach the train and bus stations walking. It is located near the center as well.


No Wifi in rooms. The staff isn't polite. Cannot freely enter the entrance.


You have to pay for the bed sheets, and they give you sheets smaller than the bed size. ---- There is no WiFi in the rooms. ---- There is no heating in the rooms (it was really cold during the night). ---- If i ever go back to this city, ill look for a different place.


Very good staff and the room was good.

Definitely my favorite place to stay in Bremen!


Hostel itself was very nice and clean but we ended up sleeping in the lounge because there was an old man in our room and he went to the toilet every 5minutes and didn't let us close the window. So our night wasn't the best but the hostel was good and had everything we needed.


This place is a bit rough. Everything smelled like stale mold and cigarettes, the beds sagged and mattresses were stained, the toilets smelled like they hadn't been cleaned in years. There's no kitchen to cook food and the general atmosphere is not very welcoming. The staff was so incredibly friendly and nice, though. Lovely people.


Everything was good enough. The toilet was a little bit dirty and smelly. There wasn't wifi on 2nd and 3rd floor, that was a minus point. The staff was friendly.

We stayed for two nights at this hostel and really annoyed our stay. As soon as we checked in, the staff recommended places to socialise and to see and marked it all out on a map which was really useful. The room was big and clean. The only thing lacking was the kitchen facilities. There were only two hot plates, a toaster and a kettle with a small workbench to eat on whilst in the kitchen. Could do with an update. The wifi also only worked in one room which was a bit annoying.


The staff were friendly. There is only wifi internet in the 2nd floor - the common room. Overall it is a good value for the money you pay. Average hostel. Calm and peaceful.


A good hostel with very friendly and helpful staff, spacious dorm room; however the building itself and rooms are a bit run-down.


Great hostel. really relaxed and really nice people. i'll stay again for sure.


It is the cheapest hostel in Bremen, so there is little to complain about. The bed mattresses are thin and can cause some back pain, the whole place looks run down, and in need of some refurbishing, however it is central, and as said cheap. There is some wifi in the first floor, and you can order breakfast the day before.
