The staff there will patiently show you the locations of some cheap buffet restaurants nearby, and it's also good for people to leave some free food for the others to cook in the hostel :) Yet the lock of the toilet door was not smooth that my friend was trapped inside the toilet for 5 minutes, better fix it as soon as possible.

Dear Guest. We love helping people and giving out the best tips for you trip. It's good to hear that you enjoyed our kitchen facilities as well. We are sorry about the toilet incident, Finnish locks can be tricky sometimes. Your feedback is important to us, and we took a look at all the locks and made sure they all work as they should.

Wonderful hostel! We stayed in one of their private rooms with ensuite bathroom. Very nice room. Nice kitchen. All very clean. Very quiet at night. Staff is great, very helpful and always working to make our stay even more enjoyable. Location is good, very close to the train station and not too far from public transportation going all arounf the city (we managed to catch buses even in pretty cold days, around -8 degrees Celsius). Would surely be our first option if comming to Tampera again!

Dear Guest. Thank you for the awesome review! We welcome you back the next time you are visiting Tampere. Miia / Dream Hostel & Hotel


Super clean and cosy hostel with great equipment! It's very close to the station and the city center. Obviously, it's not very cheap but Finland isn't a cheap country and there's a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering.

Dear Guest. Thank you for your review, and welcome back next time when you are visiting Tampere. Miia/DH Staff


Due to some problems related to the train and ferry schedule, we "accidentally" have to stay in Tampere for one night~ The location is quite good being close to the train station~ Friendly staff and everything is clean and nice~ Tips on where to eat and where to find grocery is very accurate and useful~ All in all, everything is pretty excellent considering the price and for a temporary stay~ Only one drawback: some locks and hinges of the lockers under the bed needs some rennovation~

Many thanks for your kind words. We do indeed enjoy our jobs and the best part is our wonderful guests! Miia / Dream Hostel & Hotel


Being a Tampere University alumni, I find the location of the hostel easily the best for my short stay. The hostel certainly has the touch of Finnish hospitality where you get free tea and coffee in a very well decorated lounge area. It's just unique design everywhere! I stayed at the dorm and my only concern was that the room was not heated enough (mid October) that I found myself freezing towards dawn. The staff are super helpful, always smiling and observant. Tampereen pride! :D

Hello there! Lovely to hear that you enjoyed our decor and freebies. In case you don't have a finnish granny to knit you some wolly socks to keep you warm, we can always provide some extra blankets if you are feeling a bit chilly at night. Miia / Dream Hostel & Hotel


Excellent in almost every way.They also offer free tea and coffee.Only drawback is the limited hours for reception (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and for the kitchen ( closed midnight to 6 a.m.) , but it's not a really big deal.

Hi there, and thanks for the feedback, good thing that you enjoyed your stay! We do have to limit the kitchen hours to ensure peaceful sleep for our guests, but it's nice to hear that it didn't cause you any inconvenience. Miia / Dream Hostel & Hotel
