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

This hostel is very well-located near the centre of Dresden. Although it's not very big, it allows a cozy enviroment thanks to the pretty garden and to the receptionists. Rooms are clean and shared bathrooms are well organized and kept.

We only stayed for one night in Dresden but the Kangaroo Hostel was the right place to stay. Its located in the middle of Neustadt (Student area) so it was very close to Dresdens nightlife. The lady at the reception was friendly, helpful and had a lot of tips for us. All in all; Dresden is a wonderful town to... More

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
