Liked: Great location, not a very personal and unique experience. Just a clean place to stay with good breakfast. Seemed more like a bland hotel.

Disliked: No personality, one of the women who worked there always seemed kind of cranky, but the other staff were just fine. They didn't have any ear plugs when I needed them.

Liked: A decent but not too special place in the center. Breakfast is nice.

Disliked: Typical Hosteling International standards: clean, quiet, medium prices, but lots of rules and lack of atmosphere. You have to pay for the internet, which is only available in the lobby, not in the rooms. Night-staff usually consisted of young people who were friendly, but day-staff is extremely rude and aggressive. Unfortunately the choice is not too big in Dortmund, otherwise I would have chosen something else and I would recommend to find another place.

Liked: The rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a great location at the heart of Dortmund. The free breakfast was fairly good and more than welcome.

Disliked: The shower was a bit cold and lacked sufficient water pressure. This was not the most affordable hostel in Dortmund, but at the time everywhere else was full.

Liked: extremely clean bedrooms, toilets and showers, amazing breakfast, 3 mins from town center, modern and friendly place - like a real hotel and not a hostel.

Disliked: the price could be 5 euros less, but it's ok. In comparison to other hostels, it was value for money.

Liked: Its location, linen and breakfast are included.

Disliked: It's not a youth hostel - the majority of guests were around 60-65 years old. Very unfriendly staff - they reprimanded a couple of guests who walked in with a pack of beers. Alcohol consumption is also prohibited in front of the building! It seemed like only about 5 % of the rooms were occupied, however, my boyfriend had to stay in a room with a broken window with a stinking elderly male couple. Smells like a hospital. There is no recreational area.

Liked: met a few people that shared the room

Disliked: lack of signage, there was little signs in English we did not know they had a games room because of this.. Breakfast finishing at 9am at a YOUTH hostel.... There were no lockers in the rooms. All tourist information is in German. (This is a sign of the town there is little to no English which makes it hard for International travellers - which I don't think they get many....)

Liked: great breakfast and cleaner than expected!

Disliked: Only negative experience was woken up in the middle of the night by neighbours but would have been out of the hostel's control. The showers didn't look too appealing but could have been worse so all in all not too bad!

Liked: Great location (5 minutes walk streightly from train station, in the very center, next to the underground station). Very nice and friendly stuff. Delicious rolls :-) for breakfast (and variety of other food like cheeses, jams, butter sausages, salads, hot chocolate, tea, coffee...). Cosy and big room. Safe locks on the wardrobe. Clean. Shower and toilet are very clean too at any time. Really the best hostel i stopped in.

Disliked: No kettler with hot water - in case if you need to make tea or coffee you have to buy it a machine or buy cup of just hot water in the machine for 1 euro. Price really differs from what you get on reservation - there will be added 3,1 euro per each night if you dont have member card, then taxes, then some percent + in case if you are older than 27... The real price for single room without shower for me was over 40 euro in fact which even made me hesitate about cancelling booking in the last day.

Liked: Its really cool staying at a castle. Its a nice walk up cobbled steps from town (about 20mins from the train). They have lots of boardgames that they let you use and the breakfast was really good

Disliked: The place really lacked an atmosphere, we were there in the off season so maybe it gets a bit sleepy? have to pay for wifi and the HI fee which I never like. They have no double beds and the 2 bunk room was really small. Nice place to stay but dont expect to be blow away by the accomodation.
