This was a great hostel with a cozy laid back vibe. Lots to do in Dresden. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good location by the train station and cheap grocery store. A nice large kitchen and a comfy common area.

The best thing about this hostel was the atmosphere. There's a living room with three comfortable couches, where, if you want, you can meet other travellers. The distance to the centre is ok, about 15 minutes walk. The place is very clean and the staff was helpful.

Great location and excellent kept hostel. We had a private double room and it was just what we needed. Clean and comfy! Service was great and helpful with planning some day trips. Location was close enough to city center but far enough to get away from too many tourist attractions. Great little cafes and bars in the area!

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice amenities and surroundings. Also quite convenient in terms of location. Worth the price also. To maximize your visit, stay for at least 3 nights, and don't be afraid to socialize with other guests. Overall, my experience with this hostel could not have been better.

Great staff, great facilities, fast wifi, big bedrooms, very nice living room and a big kitchen. It is also an excellent location very close to the railway station, but still in a calm neighborhood. I really recommend this place!

The staff on reception were lovely and made sure that I knew everything I needed to in order to have the best stay possible. Unfortunately, I only stayed for one night and even though it was quiet I met some lovely people. The kitchen was excellently well equipped and clean. The bathrooms were adequate and the bedrooms were nice. The... More

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

“The best area for the wi-fi is in the lounge. It seems you can get the wi-fi signal in many rooms, but not all because of the thick walls. Overall, it is good signal.”
