The staff at the Kangaroo stop are so lovely, when I checked in the reception lady noticed my leaving day was also my birthday. Low and behold, when I checked out, the staff sang Happy Birthday to me, and had bought me presents :-) I am so incredibly touch by their thoughtfulness. The coach from Berlin stops just around the... More

In three weeks of travel in Europe, Kangaroo Stop has easily provided the best service of any hostel we have stayed in - friendly, and with genuine concern for the needs of young travelers. The hostel itself - spacious, clean, comfortable, excellent location not far from both old and new town. Hostel is set on a big block with a... More

After a 5 day party stint in Berlin, the Kangaroo stop was just what the doctor ordered. This cozy, friendly, and relaxing hostel provides a feeling of being at home, while still giving you the backpacking atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and seemed generally excited about welcoming people into their location. The rooms were comfortable, and had big lockers... More

A central hostel, nice personnel and area for to be social. It was easy to book and pay, also easy to find walking shortly from tram. Showers and toilets were average (=ok) and the kitchen was big and great. The best was possibility to leave food for other guest. If you are lucky you don't need to buy food that... More

It's just one of the best hostels I've ever been! Everyone is more calm in here because of the peaceful air, I mean there's no sound of anything besides the nature! The people from the hostel are extremely helpful and happy. It's near from the tram, bus and train! If you are looking for a place to stay, this is... More

I spent a weekend at the Kangaroo Stop, and was very satisfied. The beds are comfortable, with good quality pillows (something of a rare treat in hostels). Bear in mind that there is a small and compulsory extra charge of 2€ (accurate May 2014) for bedding if you stay less than 3 nights. The hostel seemed reasonably empty, which meant... More

Good kitchen and large common room, but my bed was reaching or had actually come to the end of it's useful existence and had a well placed spring in my side. Enjoyable stay and the staff had good recommendations for places to go and detox in nature.

I spent two nights in the hostel, and both of them were great. The staff are friendly and helpful. My bed was so comfortable, and the room was clean, as well as bathrooms. And I absolutely loved the common room even though I'm not Australian;) Location is perfect if you arrive at the Neustadt Bahnhof; a little less perfect if... More

Right in the heart of Dresden 'New Town' next to the train station and tram stops this tucked-away hostel is unexpectedly large with nice grounds and facilities. There is a nice reception with free internet, a large and comfy common room with a large kitchen for self-catering. Our bedroom was well laid out in 2 sections (10-bed dorm) and was... More
