This place is so nice and cosy, plus it's cheap and greatly located (3min from the station, next to a shopping mall with everything you need). Staff is adorable and helpful, they got us an early breakfast because we were leaving very early :) We stayed in the "hotel" part of Dream hostel, it's brand new (hmmm the smell of... More

What a great little hostel in central Tampere. Had such a good stay, just wished it could have been for longer. Hostel is easy to find in a central location next to the Tampere Hall (for concerts), the university and a small shopping centre (with a K Mart). The train station us about 10mins walk away. The hostel is clean,... More

We had such a great stay ! My cousin and I stayed there for only one night in a 16 mix dorms bedroom and everything was perfect. We were a bit scared that it would have a big mess and people will be very loud but not at all. Moreover, coffee and tea is free ! There are games that... More

A nice, clean, homely hostel with really frendly personnel! It's a rather "high-level" place as hostels go, with the option to buy breakfast. A great place right by the Tampere Hall and the University, close to the railway station and not far from the city centre.

Hi Paul Sorry to hear that the 10 bed dorm didn't quite meet your expectations, but as you mentioned we also offer private rooms for those who are light sleepers and value privacy over price. When it comes to the "sort of" friendly staff, a big part of our work here at the reception is to be present in social... More

I stayed at Dream Hostel for two day business trip. The (private) room I had, and the place, was much more that I expected. By just looking at the room, I wouldn't have been able to say if I was at a high end hotel or in a Dream Hostel. The staff was very nice, place had tons of luvely... More

Great hotel near the city center, the railway station and the "Tampere-talo". Our double room was small but comfortable. Rooms are decorated in a scandinavian style.
