Liked: it was well located and central (15m walk from the main sights, and right at the bars district, full of restaurants and supermarkets around), the staff was friendly and the common room was very nice. plus coffee and tea were free of charge all day. didn't try the breakfast but it seemed to be good. It had a nice terrace where you could chill out during summer days, unfortunately was winter when I was there

Disliked: by only dislike were the rooms. I stayed at a 10 people dorm-room and the upper part of it (you had to climb a really narrow staircase) was so low that even I, who am very short, couldn't stand straight. other than that was quite ok, comfortable beds, enough covers, had a sink inside the room and big windows. I just really don't think they should allow beds to be booked with such low ceiling!

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.

But if you have any possibilty do to that on your own, we would be glad, if you can erase this review and we would be very happy if you take the time to write a review about your stay at the Townside Hostel Bremen.

Thanks and best retgards from Bremen

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?
