Myself and a friend stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to help us out. The hostel is located close to the city train station, and also close to the old city. The Elbe River is also close by, which is a beautiful walk. We found the... More

This hostel is really lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious and sunny. They have a nice kitchen where you can make your own food and the guest lounge is so cool. Its in a good location, near the train station and supermarket. I really enjoyed my stay here. Would love to visit here again.

The hostel is two blocks from the Dresden Neustadt train station [i.e. one stop before the main station; some intercity buses also stop here], about a 20 minute walk from the historic Altstadt [trams from the station also run there].Comfortable dorms with roomy lockers; the men's showers are rather like high school with limited privacy and security. Large and very... More

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
