Very nice place. Everything is close. They even have bike rental (15€ the whole day). Very helpful staff. If i ever come back to Tampere, I know where to stay! :) If you like breakfast, then they have amazing variety for 6.50€.

I really liked the style of this hotel, it was a bit like a designer experiment. I stayed in one of those rooms without windows, which was fine. There was a slight smell of wood which made it feel like a summer cottage. My room was clean and simple and almost two small. However, it was ok for one person... More

The service of the people at the reception is very friendly. They helped me to find a meeting space that was needed for our congress. They explained and gave information about the walking trips. The rooms were clean. It is better to stay in the female dormitory than in the mixed dormitory because the beds are better equiped with light,... More

The aptly named ‘Dream Hostel and Hotel’ is a dream indeed! The hotel part upstairs particularly has an indelible charm to it. Finnish design, very modern and with the lovely, strangely charming (albeit subtle) smell of wood. To add to the authentic experience, the staff were typically Finnish (a compliment, I might add, as they’re my kind of people!) -... More

I stayed with friends in the 'hotel' part of the hostel, in one of the twin bed rooms, and I have to say I was very happy with the accommodation, it was very clean and functional, everything you'd expect from a visit to Finland! It's located a short walk from the centre of town with a supermarket, bars and restaurants... More

Located about a 5 minute walk from the train station, I stayed in the hotel part of the building (the building is divided into a hostel and hotel) I mean this in the best way possible, but it feels a bit like staying in hotel designed by IKEA. I mean that, the colour pallet and use of space is of... More

Hi and thanks for your review! Just to let you know, nothing upstairs is bought from IKEA, except some kitchenware :) I have contacted the building management company and we are fixing the air vent problem! The problem is not our own air con machine, but the one which is serving the whole building. They have now changed the operating... More

Dream Hostel was actually a dream I was living in.On my recent trip to Tampere due to some major event ongoing in the city. I was unable to find room in any hotel for one night. All the Major luxury hotels were booked on that day. One Local suggested me this hostel and I was very skeptical of spending night... More

I came here for a conference which was like 3minute walk and it was amazing. Really new clean and friendly place. I had a private room with my bathroom and I really recommend it. Very clean and comfy warm bed. Staff very helpful and nice breakfast.

Stayed 1 night in the hotel section (on the second floor- completely seperated from hostel). Staff inadvertantly gave me the wrong room number at first (apparently had the same first name of another guest staying) so had an awkward moment with the other guest trying to get into his room, but beyond that error they seemed friendly and helpful.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review. First of all, I'd like to apologize for the mishap with the rooms. If you're looking for a true bargain, we also offer traditional, shared hostel rooms for as little as 25€/bed/night. Hope to see you again when you return to Tampere! -Miia More
