Overview

Explore Dresden from the high-energy base of Kangaroo-Stop, a 100-year-old villa in the centre of town. (That's one for Instagram!) You'll chat with the other guests in the communal kitchen or the bar in the evenings, and feel the grass between your toes as you catch the last rays in the garden. There's also a bonfire spot and a barbecue, so don't forget marshmallows on your way back from town! Between jaunts around the city, you can catch up on some reading in one of the hammocks in the common room.

Location

The hostel is located in a quiet neighbourhood, but you can roll straight from the hostel bar to Dresden's nightlife district (Neustadt) in 5 minutes. There you'll find cafés, restaurants and bars. You can also stroll to the Baroque and Renaissance-age buildings of Dresden's Old Town, and take a walk along the River Elbe. While you're there, catch an exhibition at the Zwinger Palace. To get to Kangaroo-Stop from Dresden Airport take the S-Bahn (overground train) line 2 to Dresden Bahnhof Neustadt, then walk 3 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

All our rooms are individually designed for a unique travel experience. You can choose from female-only rooms, dorms, private rooms or a family house. Most of the rooms have their own wash basin, and all have lockers for stashing away your bits and pieces.

Extras and activities

Start a conversation over a free cup of tea in one of the common areas, and if you get peckish, you can buy a snack or two. We'll also give you a free city map so you can plan your own tour. If you need a sit down, settle in and use our free Wi-Fi. We have an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast every morning for 7 euros – now there's an incentive to get out of bed!

    It’s an absolutely wonderful hostel, one of the best I’ve stayed in. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy, kitchen is huge- and clean. Located in New town, close to Old town, not far from either station. I would 100% stay here again.

    We really loved our stay at Kangaroo Stop. The staff are super nice, the rooms are cosy and well laid out and the shared facilities are great. The area around the hostel is hipster and super cool. Something to note is that the showers aren't very private (you have to undress potentially in front of another person and the shower curtain is fairly transparent) but this didn't bother me :) Just thought I'd mention for other people.

    Rooms were great! And main area was fun with hammocks! Pretty good kitchen, and I loved all the locker space in the dorms. It was a funky place for sure. It was only a hop from the train station and right beside a grocery store. It was in a good cheap food area and a 15 min walk from the main city centre. And the staff were AMAZING!!!!

    Convenient location, I liked the sitting area, wifi worked well, and staff was nice. Only complaint is the kitchen was a bit dirty. There was a pot of rice sitting on the stove the entire 3 days I was there. I get guests are supposed to clean up after cooking, as they should, but it was obvious someone didn’t, so it should’ve been cleaned up.

    A nice, cosy hostel with friendly, helpful staff and a good location for hanging out in the Neustadt. A little pricier than the average but worth it if you aren't staying too long in the city.

    Very Good

    14 Sep 2019
    The hostel is close to train station, staff is very helpful and friendly, and the rooms and common area was very clean. Few things that I dint like was, though the shower areas are separate for males and females, the doors to the showers are transparent. Also though the hostel is close to the area having lots of cafes and bars, the road to reach there is very lonely and you don’t feel safe at night. They provide you clean bed sheets and blanket covers, but u have to put that on yourself.

    Staying for 2 nights in Dresden. This place was worth the price, cleanliness of the room was acceptable, showers as well. The only disadvantage is the present of spiders in every corner - I have no arachnophobia, but I found kinda shame, they don't find at least one day to get rid of them. All in all, quite fine place to stay.
