The inside of the hostel is nearly like a hotel, very different from other hostels, and the atmosphere is very good.

Staff were really friendly. They offered me and the other half a free upgrade to a private room. Room was very clean, showers were nice and hot. Just round the corner from the train station and the Dom cathedral. A little away from the main centre but only a 15-20 minute walk which is a nice walk anyway.

Good location, just a 10-12 minute walk to the main station and DOM Cathedral. U babahn less than 2 minutes and train station at Hansaring around the corner. Shops, cafe, bars all within very close proximity. Would recommend the bagel cafe a few doors up for breakfast.

This is not a really hostel, it is more like renting a small appartement in a house full of appartements.Therefore you are never disturped by other guests. It feels luxury and the furniture is beautiful. The location is fantastic (next to the UBahn, so you are in the centre withing 3 minutes or, if you like walking 20 minutes to the centre) and there are many small stores, supermarkets and restuarants within 5 minutes of walking. The staff gave us restaurant tips upon arrival, which was very useful. You could not hear the bar, which is on the ground floor, in our appartement

Great comfortable beds and pillows, terrific showers and an overall very clean environment. Location is quite good as well, 4 metro stops to center or a 30 minute walk. The bar/cafe offered cheap prices as well.

There are many facilities and the place is kept clean. There's free breakfast, kitchen and washing machine. It's walking distance to most places, right next to a tram stop, and many shops and bars just round the corner. There is no curfew and the common areas also do not have a closing time.

The best thing about it is it's location, very close to the main train station, and the tourist info centre is right on the corner. Just so convenient, love being able to find my accommodation without any hassles. The female staff member who was on duty when I arrived was friendly and chatty.
