The owner and hostess is a really nice and warm woman. It's a bit pricey for a backpacker, but really the best choice. The room was very tidy and clean. The kitchen was very well organised and top notch!

I stayed here on my way through from Prague up to Berlin. I was welcomed by Julia, who was an amazing host. She was so welcoming and helped me with all my needs. It was my first hostel and definitely one of the best on my journey. The hostel has a comfortable, cosy feeling about it- so when you are... More

The rooms were quite large and there was a desk and a sink in the room. The only things which bothered me is that there were no plugs next to the bed. The showers were adequate and clean. The staff was friendly but the reception is not open 24h. The atmosphere was quite calm and quiet, at least when I... More

I have different feelings about this hostel, I'll start from the relatively negative ones; When I've seen my room (4 bed dorm) and showers, I thought that it's kind of old style. Their price policy is a bit expensive, they do charge for the sheets (First time I've seen such a thing) and an extra 3 Euros for municipality (Go... More

Stayed in dresden 1 night after biking from Prague. The staff were super helpful, even giving me bandages for my cuts (I fell off my bike.) I had to drop off my bike there so that the rental company could come pick it up, and they helped me lock it in a storage area. The lounge and kitchen area are... More

We spent one night at the kangaroo stop. Rooms are big but a bit dirty and stinky. Prices are high and bed linen cost extra. Location is good. Highlight is the big and cozy common room with a huge kitchen.

This hostel is a nice comfortable hostel, the staff speak good English and are very helpful, the location is very good, my bed was comfortable, there were lockers in the rooms. Dresden is a really beautiful city and kangaroo-stop was a good Base to explore the city.

The staff for the most part were super friendly and helpful. Like above and beyond. Thy also let us keep our rental car parked for the day we checked out because "you're our guests til you choose to leave". The commonroom is super cozy. Couches and hammocks! There's a kitchen and wifi. And it's very easy walking distance to the... More

Was the friendliest and cleanest hostel i had stayed at up to that point on my trip.from the moment i walked in I was greeted with enthusiasm and humour. I loved it. Super clean and in a good location. To one side is the historical town and the otherside the bars and restaurants. Also has train station 2 mins away.

I stayed here in the 10 bed dorm for 2 nights. It was good- the dorm is split into two rooms and the reception staff were really friendly. There was also a good kitchen/lounge area Just be careful when reading reviews of hostels as some people leave bad reviews because other guests were loud and noisy. The hostel have absolutely...
