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.

    I enjoyed my stay at a&o Dortmund Hauptbahnhof. Thank you to the staff that keeps is clean and comfy. The hostel is 4 mins by walk from Dortmund Hpf, that was really important for me, as I had my train at 5 am. I booked a bed in a standard 6 bed female dorm, and my room had it's own toilet and separate bathroom. Nothing to complain about, that's why, 10/10.

    Thank you for hosting me so beautifuly for one night in Dortmund hostel! Clean, comfortable, nice staff, good coffee at the bar. I wanted to stay for another night and then got the information that the price is different for every night and that was a bit disappointing therefore I didn’t stay the extra night. I booked a dorm with 6 bads and surprisingly there were 8 in my room.

    Great to sleep but did feel like a social hostel to meet travellers. Shower was decent.

    The Hostel's location is good - close to the main station. It has a downside being close to the station since most of the guests are just stopping there as if they are in transit. There are no electric plugs nor there are USB plugs at the beds. The hostel has an unpleasant smell - I changed the room thinking that the roommates smelled, but it was not the case. Also, this hostel is not for young people, most of the people I saw, were 40 and above.

    Absolute rip off! For a hostel site, charging me over 200 Euros simply because I requested a 3 berth room takes the pi55. Especially when I've used your site again in Phi Phi for a €10 room... I suggest you work closer with your partners and their extortion

    The hostel is in a slightly dodgy part of town but the common areas are well furnished. Staff are friendly enough by German standards and they have a daily offer for cocktails which is quite good. The rooms, including the bathroom and toilet, are large, clean and comfortable although the sockets are not very accessible. My room faced out onto the street which meant that we had people continuously screaming all the way through the ice so be prepared to bring earplugs or not sleep.
