Liked: In terms of cleanliness and facilities this is easily the best hostel I've ever stayed at - each level has its own perfect kitchen and a common room with a big TV, every dorm room has its own kettle with cups and glasses - your bed is even made for you every day. The staff (particularly Thorsten and Olav) are also fantastic - they'll go over the map and show you where everything is and how to get there, as well as helping you with whatever you need (I cleverly managed to break one of my keys off in a lock and they helped me get it out with their tools, then referred me to a locksmith to get a copy - even called him to make sure he was open).

Disliked: The location isn't perfect - it's not in the city but it's right next to the S-Bahn station so it's easy to get in and out... and on weekends the S-Bahn runs 24 hours and really frequently. The atmosphere isn't amazing, probably because people are so spread out among the various facilities, but it's still pretty easy to meet people hanging out cooking food or watching TV. It's a quiet hostel where you have a chat, more than a 24/7 party hostel.

Liked: Quiet area but only a few minutes to the city centre. Showers are super-clean and the girls are helpful.

Disliked: No lockers (however you can keep your valuables in the safe box at reception). Linen is not included so yo've got to pay extra 2 EUR if you wanna have it. That's really strange! Do they expect travelers to carry their own bedsheets?

Liked: Good, value, freindly staff, good security and comfortable beds, warm rooms, etc. Most Hostels in germany are fantastic and are better than those in most european countries.

Disliked: We are given keys to our shared rooms and a key to the main door whenever the reception is closed. The main door is locked at all times, however it is opened by the staff at the reception via a door bell during reception opening times. My key wouldn't open the main door and I was forced to use the bell on several occasions. Unfortunately at 6am I was woken up by a guest outside who banged on our lower windows in order to get someone to open the main door. Fortunately I heard it and let him in, he was very thankfull having only a thin sweater to protect him from the -1 temperatures. It annoyed me a little because the reception didn't let me know about the change in locks on the front door, and should at least have been aware of the change in locks by their management. I made it clear to reception about the keys and the 6am wake up call by an annoyed guest, and to ensure they let all their guests know about this problem. Other than that small problem I would still recommend Townside. Especially as it is a great way of meeting interesting people on their journeys, and to save money on expensive hotels in around bremen.

Liked: The hostel was easy to get to from the airport - directions were clear from the website - take the number 6 tram then transfer to the number 10 tram, then walk for two minutes. I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm room, was clean and roomy. Each bed had its own reading light. The single bathroom and toilet on the third floor were separate and very clean. There was also a mini-kitchen with a sink and kettle on the third floor as well. Liked the free coffee and tea on offer too (on those cold days). Staff were helpful and spoke excellent English. It was located near a cluster of restaurants so won't go hungry and it was a 10 minute walk away to the main town centre.

Disliked: The "buffet" breakfast consisted of bread, one type of cereal, yoghurt, fruits (apple, pineapple, grapes), selection of cheeses and meat, cucumbers and tomatoes, and fruit juices. Though it was a good selection, it wasn't really worth the 6 euro. The breakfast area is also the common area which isn't very big and could get cramped. The spiral staircase could be a problem for those carrying luggage up a few flights of stairs (I had a backpack so it didn't bother me). Not much information offered in English - in particular the "things to do in Bremen" folder at reception contained information only in German. I also wasn't provided with a detailed receipt upon check-out despite being told that I would be given one (again not a big deal), but if you are after a detailed receipt, maybe ask one once you check-in. No individual lockers to keep your belongings in. Had to pay extra for linens (had to make your own bedding).
