“Good Hostel, Slightly Misleading Location....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Our stay at A&O was quite satisfactory - rooms small, but quite new and clean, breakfast was very reasonable and quite extensive. However - we booked with this hotel on the proviso that it was close to the train station, and after exiting the HBF, you see a sign "400 m to A & 0" - it's not, it's at least 1.5 kms - which is a significant difference if you're carrying a pack. They should change the signage or title! It's not a good location in Dresden, but there is a supermarket and take away food next door. Good value for money, just a little misleading!

We'd booked ahead from the Hamburg A&O and saved 10%. Like the Hamburg hostel it is close to the station and not in the best area of Dresden. Rooms are large and clean with tv and services.
Breakfast was not included but was only 5euros for the full A&O brekky, very good!
We were given vouchers however for a complimentary drink in the Sky-bar, this is a bar on the top floor [8th] with a stunning view over Dresden and the prices aren't bad!
Not a pretty hotel but value for money, 100%

Room Tip: Don't forget the Sky-bar!

Yes, this is a hotel and hostel, but it is nice and clean and not a party hostel or anything like that. It's about 2 blocks from the Dresden hbf station and 15 minutes from the "main strip". We paid 44$ for a double room with private bathroom and were really happy. Yes it's basic, but do you really NEED the extras?

PROS- Proximity to the city and train station is fantastic. Easy check-in process. No lines. Parking in front if needed. Quiet area. Good TV channel options. Clean hotel! Breakfast was fantastic! Kids under 10 eat free. Given a coupon for free drink, but didn't take advantage of it.

CONS- Small bathroom / shower.

Dresden is a lovely city to visit and this hostel/hotel is a nice place to stay. It's close enough to the station, but don't expect to walk out the station door and see it, you'll need a map and a direction to walk. It has compact rooms like something you'd expect to experience in Tokyo. The staff are nice enough. The price is cheap and there is cheap wifi too. There is a great roof top bar that's worth a visit especially at sunset. There were a few school groups doing the rounds and one lot were making a ruckus for hours in the hallways till about 10pm. When they quietened down the bar across the street got started, so it wasn't the best sleep, but it wasn't terrible either. Overall a solid hostel, but don't expect much and you'll be fine. It's worth noting too (though it's self explanatory as it's close to the train station) that it's not near the city and you'll have to tram there, but this isn't all that bad.

Stayed in the Hotel section. Staff were extremely helpful during our 3 night stay in early September; they gave us lots of useful advice. Room was average size but clean and warm. Hostel/Hotel is well situated with a fun tram ride into the centre, starting only 150 metres from the door. Walk to the Frauenkirche takes 25 mins but you walk through lots of interesting streets on the way. Reviewer who said it was not close to the Hbf needs his eyes tested as you can almost fall into it. 8th floor bar has good views and has a happy hour that lasts 2 hours. All you can eat breakfast was good value although all the food is cold [cereals; meats; cheese; yogurt etc - no hot cooked food]. Private car park was useful. All round good value.

Room Tip: Don't have a room at the back overlooking the Aldi carpark as you'll have the fire escape pa...

This hostel is located really near the Hauptbanhof, which is always a bonus in my opinion. The front desk was really nice and could help with any demand. The room is a little bit on the small side, however it's well kept and very silent. It's perfect to rest a little bit after a day enjoying Dresden. I can't comment on the breakfast since I had to leave really early in the morning (5.00 am), so it wasn't available.
