    I love every aspect of the hostel. Leann, the receptionist, was very helpful; she helped to carry my luggage up to the second floor. The room was big and had lots of space for guest. I love the sunroom in particular--very relaxing and peaceful. Everything is within short walking distance. A perfect hostel.

    Very friendly stuff, super location next to all the bars and restaurants. Also the building and the courtyard is awesome. Generally the atmosphere in the hostel was friendly and nice! And the kitchen area is suitable for cooking and having nice dinners. I totally recommend it and for sure will visit the hostel again

    I had a very enjoyable stay here at Kangaroo Stop! The room was very tidy and had a very comfortable bed. All the facilities were clean and the common areas/kitchens were perfect. The hostel is located on the northern side of the river and has some great bars and cafes around. Shoutout to Anna at reception, she was very kind and gave me a lot of useful information for the rest of my travels in Germany. Highly recommend this hostel!

    A typical youth hostel, with a nice lounge area and common kitchen and very helpful staff. Quite large dorm rooms, so easy to maintain social distancing within the room. The shared bathrooms have less privacy than expected though. As it is close to the Neustadt station, the Lidl and Rossmann hops within the station are accessible on Sundays as well (most other shops are closed on Sundays). Fairly easy to get to the older parts of the city (Altstadt) via a pedestrianised road closeby.

    Great location and a beautiful old building. All the facilities were top and it felt really nice being able to sit cozily in a proper kitchen. The only downside was that it was pretty quiet/empty. This was completely fine for us as we traveled as a group, but I could imagine it being a bit more difficult as a solo traveler.

    Everything is great here. The tall guy at the front is helpful. Not much of a party hostel. Good for working space.

    Quite large, but still very relaxed hostel a few minutes away from the Neustadt train station and right next door to the night life district. The staff is wonderful and we even received a free promotion to a family room, because our 10-bed room was locked shut, which was great. Good toilets and showers and amazing rooms for soicalizing. close to restaurants and shop, such as Lidl.

    Good location and really nice common area and kitchen for guest use. The rooms and bathrooms were clean but there was a strong smell of smoke in the room.
