Bargain hostel that surprised me in a good way! Jan 24, 2013
From the outside, it doesn't look like it's gonna be great, but it's what's on the inside that counts!
I was greeted by a very friendly young lady, we had a laugh & a joke together whilst she told me all the rules & about the hostel. It was only £9/night for a 6-bed dorm (in low season), but don't blame me if the prices are higher as I told her she could easily get more money! Ridiculously good value for money. The rest of the staff were really nice & helpful too.
There was a huge lounge area that was very cozy, & a big kitchen so you can cook all your own meals. The rooms & bathrooms were clean & well kept. The usual sort of thing; free wifi, one communal computer (free), no breakfast included. You do have to pay a couple of euros for linen, which isn't really an issue when the hostel is so cheap but I would prefer them to just put the prices up a bit instead!
It's very close to the Dresden-Neustadt train station (& in the Neustadt half of the city. Both oldstadt & neustadt are easily accessible by tram or on foot.
Reception is manned between 8am- 10pm, although the boss lives in a house right next to the hostel building so if you need anything then there's a bell you can ring & she'll be there in 5 minutes! Otherwise the building is pretty secure & there are lockers in the room too.
I would definitely recommend a stay here due to the personable staff - they're very good at giving you tips on Dresden & the best places to go! It is pretty basic but has everything you need all for a fantastic price!
