Liked: Next to the train station.

Disliked: Worst hostel I´ve ever stayed in. You can´t be sure about the price you get from hostelbookers.They charged me 20% more than the bill of hostelbookers was. That was because of taxes and for renting linen(!!!!). Which backpacker brings his own linen??? Actually the guy on the reception charged me 40% more, because he "forgot" to subtract my 15% payment in advance. Be aware of that! Plus there were no plug-in at the bedside, so no chance to charge your mobile...

28 September 2013 Marta would recommend this property

Liked: The hotel itself was very good, we were allowed to check in after 10am (we arrived in Dortmund at 6 in the morning), which is a great plus. We also got free towels, there was a hairdryer in the bathroom and basic cleaning supplies.

Disliked: The disadvantages are definitely the lack of free wifi in the rooms and quite thin walls and a noisy street behind the window. Also, something that really made me angry is the fact that I found a pair of used panties under my quilt (which didn't have linen on), so I think it's not as clean as they say it is.

Liked: It's just a 5 Star Hostel! Make sure you have a padlock for your wardrobe.

Disliked: Staying together in a mixed room? If you do do like to stay in only males or only female room you have to inform the staff earlier. But I think they should make it in a way that males and female stay stay differently. In that way you could be more relax and free in your room.
