Really isn't much to say, except it's cheap and seemed like a safe place to stay in a good central location in Bremen. It's only 10 mins walk from the city centre. Shower was inconsistent with temperature (turned ice cold after being boiling hot) and you had to hold the shower in your hand (tricky). Can't really expect luxury for... More

Given the prices, I think this hostel is okay. There's a nice lounge with TV, couches, free wi-fi, board games, a hot drinks vending machine and some useful travel brochures and the general atmosphere is very quite. Plus, the hostel is very central, not far from the railway station and the city centre. What I didn't like: the mattress was... More

This is not a pleasant experience. The carpets in the rooms are filthy, our bathroom stank and the hallways also suffer from terrible odours. Apart from all of that, the 'customer service' is non-existent in this hostel - the reception is staffed only for short hours and when occupied, the staff are incompetent and unpleasant. I would DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMEND... More

Stayed here for three nights. As others have mentioned, the check-in times were not very convenient (we had to wait an hour and a half before we could check in). We also had a problem paying by credit card, which I note someone else had said had been a problem--they tried two or three times to make the card work... More

We thought Southend Hostel Bremen was a strange hostel - people (including elderly people) lived there too, which gave it a weird atmosphere. It was dingy and dirty - the carpet in the dorm was filthy, as were the pillows. We used our sleeping bags instead of the linen because the place was not clean and it smelt too. The... More

The people who check you in are a bit cooky. The storage was ok. The are not there between 12-3 so dont think youll be able to stroll in and get yourself checked in before 3. The credit card machine was dial up, so it wouldnt really work until the 7th try. The computers were old and outdated, but did... More
