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

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
