Liked: Kangaroo stop has a relaxed, cosy vibe. Things are kept clean and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking instruments. The lounge area is one of the best I've seen in europe so far.

Disliked: Coming from a backpackers point of view... The showers are button showers, the wifi is unreliable and you only get a 6 hour time frame in which to use your wifi.... Unless you pay extra and the kitchen is poorly lighted.

Liked: Location was really good! It wasn't as close to the old part of the city, but it was central between the old part and the nightlife scene which was nice, and so close to the Neustat station!

Disliked: Nothing in particular!

Liked: The staff were so welcoming, helpful and friendly, the facilities and kitchen area was great- including the use of recyclables and the shelf for people to leave food for other people. Our rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable. The showers were lovely and hot. The location was perfect- in the middle of the new and old town.

Disliked: It is a bit more expensive than we have paid for other hostels in europe. The wifi was a bit tricky to get on to. There was no mirror in one of our rooms but a mirror and basin in our next! The shower area could do with some hangers for towels and shelf for shampoo etc!

Liked: The Kangaroo Stop was awesome. I was not sure of what to expect since it was my first time staying at a hostel; i was totally satisfied with every aspect of my stay. The Kangaroo Stop has set the bar high for other hostels; i hope all of my future hostel experiences are as great as the Kangaroo Stop. The Kangaroo Stop was clean, the staff was great and very helpful, the location is awesome as it is located in a prime location in Dresden Neustadt area. If you are visiting the Dresden Neustadt area i highly recommend staying at the Kangaroo Stop; the train station is about 350 meters from the front door, you can walk to the historical area (10 minutes) and the bar and nightlife area (5 minutes). Go Kangaroo Stop, you will enjoy you stay.

Disliked: I have no dislikes about the Kangaroo Stop. It's a great hostel.

Liked: This place was fantastic! Every member of staff were so friendly and welcoming to us. Even the cleaner came up to us to wish us a good day out. I loved it. I don't know what people are complaining about, this place is great. The hostel is clean (smells great) and the kitchen is probably one of the best I've seen. Quit your whining, travel more and you'll learn to appreciate gems like this one, when they come along.

Disliked: Paying for bed linen.
