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.

    Great location super close to train station! Airport bus runs constantly from outside station too which was perfect to us. Very helpful staff and very clean room! Only complaint no area such as a common room where we could drink our own alcohol - there is a bar at the hostel but you had to purchase drinks in order to sit and drink there so more of a hotel than a hostel in this sense. Also no kitchen facilities

    I have found my experience and enjoyment in hostels to be heavily dictated by the people i have in the room i am allocated. Well apart from a plain sort of town of dortmund and a very basic value for money standard clean and friendly staffed hostel the place was a solid 8. The people in the room bumped it up a bit.

    I spent a night there in the multi female dorm. The only thing I would mention is that the check-in was about 15 minutes late. I didn't have to pay extra for linen (I somehow get the feeling they are a bit subjective on the topic, but I'm not complaining). The room was impeccably clean and so were the shower/toilet. The room had lockers and if you don't have your own lock, you can rent one for 5euros. I'd stay here again, definitely.

    Staff needs to tone down the attitude of self-entitlement. Sometimes they seem a bit arrogant and aloof. A part from, rooms are great and so was breakfast

    Clean and in a good location. Apart from that, the atmosphere is horrible. Full of drunk people running around, no respect whatsoever to the other guests. We had a roommate that was blacked out drunk in the room, listening to loud music, smoking and drinking. Not recommended, would never come back.
