This hostel is close to the Neustadt train station and tram stop, supermarket and cafés and restaurants, and was fairly easy to find. Make sure you have cash on you to pay for your room! The hostel is kept very clean by the staff. The furnishings are a bit dated, and the bathroom (well at least the ladies) is distinctly... More

We loved this hostel, the owner was so helpful, the staff were very friendly and open. We planned 3 nights but stayed for over a week! Dresden is amazing and this hostel is in the right position to see everything. It is very close to The Nuestadt station, but also very close to the new city, best of both worlds!

The Kangaroo Stop is located in a very quiet and convenient area in the Neustadt district. The gripping Old Town and the popular party districts are literally next door. Upon arrival I was checked in very smoothly and in a smart procedure by a lady named Lisa. Furthermore, I want to outline that the majestic kitchen and kindness of staff... More

Rally nice location close to the old town that is the most visited (I guess). Organized, friendly staff, nice service, really good kitchen and rooms, clean bathrooms. In my opinion, really nice for a hostel and the good price they offer! Was there for 2 days and have nothing to complain (just thought coffee was a little bit "expensive" but... More

Kangaroo Stop is in an excellent location to explore both the Old Town and New Town of Dresden. The atmosphere of the hostel is pretty groovy, and the kitchen, showers, and other facilities were great. I'd also like to mention the professionalism of the staff. On the night I stayed here, a group of vandals had been robbing various hostels... More

I love this place!!! It is now one of my favorites. The rooms, bathrooms, showers and all in the hostel are clean. You can see the cleaning staff busy all day making sure that everything, even the dirty dishes that are left in the kitchen sink, is clean. The location is great: a 2 or 3 min walk from the... More

Pretty good hostel a quick tram ride to the city centre. Walking distance to a number of pubs clubs and restaurants. Room was very large, war, and clean. They don't allow sleeping bags and charge for sheets, a bit of a surprise and probably should just be included in a slightly higher room charge. Bathroom not bad but drains seem... More

This is a very good hostel with very helpful staff. It is very clean with plenty of space. The beds are good and the showers are powerful. Good kitchen and a garden which is nice to sit and have a beer. The hostel has a bar.

The staff are great and friendly (and helpful and understanding) and want to make sure you have a great stay. It's a welcoming environment, and it's a very cute hostel. There is a lounge to a hostel, so it's nice to even chill there during the day updating blogs, posting photos on Facebook or researching what your day will behold.... More
