Property Description

In typical a&o style, we will welcome our guests in a superb central location, close to the main station as well as the busy pedestrian shopping area. Without a doubt, this location is an absolute hit.
Each kind of accommodation will be satisfied: a budget hotel room (Single, Twin, Family) or just a cheap bed in one of our dorms. Of course each room is en suite and equipped with Wifi.
From here it is not far to Dortmund`s cultural mile, including the concert hall and the Museum of Art and Cultural History, but also the future DFB Football Museum, the municipal and state library, and finally the Harenberg-Center and the Dortmund U. Or you may decide to explore industrial culture in Dortmund: probably the most attractive mine in the Ruhr Zollern Mine, the coking works Hansa, and the DASA German Employment Protection Exhibition are among the main attractions along the route of industrial culture here in Dortmund.
But there is far more to explore than Dortmund itself. You will be staying right in the middle of the Ruhr region, often known as the Pot, from where it is easy to reach the whole region. Once the centre of the iron and coal industries, today the metropolis Ruhr is striking for its concentration of culture the liveliest scene in Europe. Whether musicals in Bochum, Essen and Oberhausen, fascinating industrial architecture at the Essen mine Zollverein, imposing exhibitions in Oberhausen`s gasometer or climbing gardens in the landscape park of Duisburg unique discoveries await you all over the metropolis Ruhr. And it is all before a magnificent backdrop, every season of the year!
There will be plenty happening in our premises as well. To guarantee a real class holiday feeling there are a lobby bar, ticket counter, bicycles for hire, billiards, table football, and internet terminals.

    Location was great for my needs. Staff were friendly and welcoming, the rooms were better clean and comfortable. Would have stayed longer if I hadn’t had such little time to plan. Definitely worth a try 👌🏻

    The hostel was perfect, loved it in every part of it because is near to the train station and to almost all of the tourism in Dortmund, we had a room partner that was uncomfortable for us, he was staring very close at us, slept in all 4 beds , then followed us through some parts of the city, we asked the staff to change the room and they did it with no problem, even to a much better room. We really appreciate that , in general the hostel feels like a 3 star hotel for its facilities and nice staf

    My girlfriend and I had a really nice stay. The beds are quite basic and quite unstable however the en-suite toilet and shower were brilliant. We only stayed in Dortmund for one night and it was brilliant. The city centre is within walking distance and the 24hr bar at the hostel is great as well. A very good hostel.

    It is what it is. A big commercial hostel in a good(great?) location. Minimal atmosphere, staff do what they're paid to do and that's it. Could do with power points for the beds like other a&o's
