    Very clean, nice staff, located a little far from city center but close to transportation so it doesn't matter much. Would recommend!

    a&o was just what i needed because it‘s farther away from the center which meant a quiet night’s sleep. the facilities were nice, spacious and very clean. i was pleased with the ensuite bathroom but the bed i stayed in was a bit uncomfortable.

    Cheap and cheerful. With easy access to the centre via public transport. The mixed dorms are simple and you get a varied mix of people staying for different reasons. In all a good budget option.

    It's a bit far off... And less of an classic hostel - rather than a hotel kinda thing where you can find the hostel setup in the rooms (bunk beds).., Breakfast buffet is good... Nothing special though, classic east German variety of a solid basis to start the day... The staff is very helpful and friendly... If you are looking for an affordable location for a family trip - you found what you want - if you are looking for a hostel where to get in touch with travellers - other places might be bet

    The elevator reaches only until the 7th floor, where there are rooms at the 8th a well. You need for some ununderstood reason to pay extra 3.5 Euro for bedsheets if you sleep in a dorm. The facilities are pretty avarage and the atmosphere the same. It is overpriced

    The room was big and I felt safe within the hostel. My issues are that this hostel is quite far from city centre, about a 40 minute commute, my room looked nothing like the rooms shown in the images, and the environment in the lobby wasn’t conducive to meeting people. Definitely a fine hostel and a good value choice, but I wouldn’t stay here again.

    The hostel is great for school trips and group travelers with rented cars, however for solo travelers or travelers planning to use public transportation, I would really recommend booking somewhere else

    The hostel is ridiculously overpriced for what you get. It is mandatory to pay extra for linnen (3.50 euros, quite a lot) and on top of that you have to put the linnen on yourself. The location is very bad compared to how expensive the hostel was. Additionally, there are no secured storage places available in the room and not all beds have access to electricity plugs.

    Staff were really unhelpful, washing machine was broken, the room had no aircon or even a fan so it was stinking hot and we barely got any sleep. Had absolutely no atmosphere and the kitchen wasn’t very well equipped. Only had one cub board for clothes and no lockers for valuables. One of my worst hostel experiences ever.
