We were happy to find a room to accommodate our family of 4, which is difficult to do in Germany. The room was clean, austere and quite small. We were next to the stairwell, so it was loud, but everything quieted down by 10pm. Breakfast was very good and the hotel was conveniently located by the train station.

We had a twin room: a miracle of design that fitted in all the essentials, and almost enough room for two people. Very narrow beds. The room was on the ground floor, right by the entrance. It was so hot (no air-conditioning) that we had to keep a window open to all the noise of people and trains arriving and passing. Breakfast at 4 Euros was excellent, but did not make up for the shortcomings. One of the local Ibis hotels on the other side of the station would have been much better value, if possibly a little more expensive.

Very basic and small room but nevertheless clean and practical. Served my needs as somewhere safe to stay and within wasy reach of the sights, either by walking or tram. Breakfast v.g. value. Clientele tended to be young - student/"gap-yearers" but no problem with noise etc, hotel appeared to segregate rooms/floors by age. I visited during some very hot weather and the temperature of the rooms was very high; even during the night with the windows wide open. This could be a major problem for some people.

This was the first "hostel" I'd ever been in so I didn't know what to expect. My room was clean, very small and served its purpose which was a one night stay in Dresden. Basically I checked in and started seeing the area. It was late when I returned to the room and I left early the next morning so I didn't use any of the other hotel facilities. The hotel isn't too far from the Hauptbahnhof but on the opposite side of everything else the town has to offer. Still, its okay if you're willing to walk or take public transportation which is excellent.

I think this hotel is good in a whole- the room was clean and the breakfest good, the price/quality is correct. But we were not happy with our room, there was very strange smell in it - not from the bathroom and not from the street, but within the room itself. And the fire-escape with bright light all night long was close to our window.If we'll have enough time -we should change the room

The hostel was very nice, new and clean. Only problem was school kids playing with elevators. Good breakfast too. The hostel needs to review its directions to hostel. The website actually directed us to the bus stop for the hostel but didn't clarify that. Its a very short walk from the train stn, exit via main station entrance, turn left and proceed 2-3 blocks and you are there.

Location is only a few minutes walk from the main station but away from the principal sites in an area with fewer restaurants etc. The quality of the breakfast was very good for the price charged. Having it with the students from the hostel was a positive experience.

very pleased with the hotel - great value for price. Clean, renovated rooms and bathrooms, staff is friendly. Bufet breakfast exceeded expectations. it was a bit of a walk to the real tourist centre, but huge shopping area starts only 5 minutes away. also no AC made the room a bit too warm, and if you open the window at night from time to time you can hear cars going along the street. but overall we would definatelly recommend
