Louise 20 is a very cute and cozy hostel that feels way more like a hotel. This is good and bad - bad in that it lacks the typical hostel atmosphere, and it is quite tricky to socialise with other people. They don't run hostel events or anything where people can get to know each other, which is fine for... More

I really liked my stay at this hostel. Upon arrival in Dresden the area where this hostel is situated was not what I expected. I arrived in the early evening and the streets were full of people drinking and my general impression was that the area was a bit crazy. However the hostel although in the midst of this madness...

Clean, friendly staff. Rooms are well furnished, clean, warm and homely. Kitchen was clean and had everything we needed. Toilets and showers were all clean and showers had warm water which was nice for a change! Would definitely recommend :)

Located in the middle of the Neustadt part of Dresden, this hostel hide in a small alley in the same area with pubs and parties. But the place itself is totally different from the surroundings. Don't mind the spooky logo, the place is nice and cute, silent, clean, and cozy. The most impressive hostel ever. Not to mention the cheap... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Good location in the Neustadt with lots of great bars and restaurants nearby. The room we stayed in was quite large and had a nice feel to it. There is a kitchen with everything you need and also a lounge where you can watch tv. Would stay here again!

It's in a nice area of Dresden, with lots of cheap places to eat/drink nearby. We had a private twin room, it was clean, had a sink, but was a bit pokey. The common room and kitchen were adequte, but didn't really offer a good space go socialises and meet people. Much better to go downstairs to the bar/restaurant. However... More

Louise 20 is a very well organized hostel. I've been there 4 times and I'm always happy with it. It's clean, comfortable and friendly for the tourist. It is also located in the Neustadt that offers a relaxed atmosphere and a mix of different bars, nationalities, tiny cinemas, disco, Schaubuden Festival ( that is great!), and a bit of bohemian...

I stayed there 1 night, I can tell from experience it ranges in the high-end of hostels in Germany. Although in East Germany it is not so cheap and the price / quality tradeoff is not that good. As for all other aspects (except breakfast whcih I didn't try) it is a good place to stay: - good location in... More

I like walking, so I didn't mind that this place wasn't in the real tourist area of Dreden. Probably a 20 minute - 30 minute walk. There are trams at run close by and it would take you minutes!! My room was spacious and had a large bed and was clean. The bathroom was right outside, and it was very... More

We had stayed just 1 night. It was clean safe and friendly. Rooms are also clean. You have kitchen. There is also excluded breakfeast. Good location 3 minutes walk to tram line and there are some cool bars and restaurants around. As a result; good choice for students and who would like to travel in budget.
