Liked: Very friendly staff with a lot of good local advice, well designed spaces for socialising and free meals on Sundays and Wednesdays making it easy to meet people. Every room seemed to be unique and had a lot of character. Generally just an excellent hostel

Disliked: Compared to the rest of the hostel the showers seemed poorly planned out and old fashioned so sometimes they were quite busy

Liked: Very homey feel with super helpful staff. Amazing location.

Disliked: Kind of loud on the weekend nights, but that was because the girls in my room decided we had to have the windows open in November.

Liked: This has been my favorite hostel so far. The character of the rooms and decorations was awesome. I highly recommend going on the night walking tour! It was so fun, a great way to learn about the art district and meet your fellow travelers. A few of us ended up staying out until 5 in the morning. Definitely a memorable night.

Disliked: The breakfast was kind of plain, don't recommend it except for socializing after the aforementioned night.

Liked: The little extra bonuses that Lollis Homestay offers swayed me into choosing them over other hostels in Dresden--and I was not disappointed! There is major coziness about this place and a real sense of community--so much so that former guests/employees often visit Lollis just to hang out because they like the place so much!! The free dinners & BBQ are great fun & another good way to meet other people there. The staff are great, caring, & helpful. For example, when I first checked in, the receptionist Sven chatted with me as if I were an old friend from long ago. That made me feel instantly welcome there! The location is in a very hip area with plenty of counter-culture.

Disliked: The door that leads to the dorm rooms 13 & 14 is not labelled, and so you an easily walk past it. It's a bit annoying that there is no sign on it. But that's not a major problem. Just remember that's a white rabbit sticker on it the door. I never got a good night's sleep due to too much noise because: the hostel is in the entertainment district and there's quite a lot of traffic overnight. However, I knew about this beforehand due to Lollis Homestay being honest in admitting this on their website.

Liked: It's a pretty unique hoste, real hippie vibe which was fine for us. We stayed in a 5bed dorm with plenty of space, lockers, heater and a giant bunk for two beds uptop like a big tree house. Free tea and coffee, helpful staff and €4 pizzas across the road at Evas Pizzas!

Disliked: The hallways smelled really funky and the shower doors didnt shut properly and were see through (single sex bathroom) you have to hire linen which always annoys me.

Liked: This hostel is in a fairly easy location to get to from the main train station. Rooms are neat with bnk beds, plenty of opening windows. Free WiFi which works in the rooms.

Disliked: It doesn't have the fun backpacker feel. Many guests are staying for work, one because her boyfriend kicked her out. As a solo backpacker hard to meet people. Also, the room has a balconwhich guests smoke on, the smoke just comes inside. Very unpleasant.

Liked: It was a bit quirky and different...not so modern, but it is what it needs to be. Free dinner on Sunday night was good, and an excuse to mingle with other guests

Disliked: There were few showers. From what I saw, 2 female with completely see through doors side by side, then a communal room with 2. Luckily i was up early and could use the communal one that was seperated.

Liked: Location was great. It was generally a nice hostel as far as that goes. Nice check in staff and nice services on offer. The WiFi was good.

Disliked: The showers were bad. Others have described them so I won't. I will say that my shower drain was clogged so the shower basin filled with dirty water. I've stayed in ~50 hostels over the past 4 years and these showers were among the worst. And paying extra (2 EUR per person) for linens was abnormal.

Liked: Lollis Homestay has a very alternative vibe to it and, at least whilst I was in residence, had some very interesting, alternative people too. It's not luxury but then it's a hostel so it's good. The excellent curry in the evening was also much appreciated. Thanks Lollis. :-)

Disliked: Snoring room mates but then if you share with 8 people it's not surprising. So I dislike nothing!
