I stayed in a 6 bed dorm room for two nights. Being March, it was definitely their quiet season. The kitchen facilities are great and it looked like the patio and garden would be lovely to use in the summer. Downsides - instead of listing the full price off your stay, they list the price of the bed. You have...

I stayed at Kangaroo for a month. I was on a study trip and hence my ideal environment needed to have a special combination of allowing to get to know interesting people but also to get a good night's sleep. I doubted I could get both staying in a (shared) six-bed room. But that's exactly what I got! Most hostels...

Can only pay in cash. And there is a whole bunch of additional charges they do not tell you about until you check out. No sleeping bag allowed so they forced you to pay for their bed linen. So commercial and not nice to traveller

This was a great hostel with a cozy laid back vibe. Lots to do in Dresden. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good location by the train station and cheap grocery store. A nice large kitchen and a comfy common area.

The best thing about this hostel was the atmosphere. There's a living room with three comfortable couches, where, if you want, you can meet other travellers. The distance to the centre is ok, about 15 minutes walk. The place is very clean and the staff was helpful.

Great location and excellent kept hostel. We had a private double room and it was just what we needed. Clean and comfy! Service was great and helpful with planning some day trips. Location was close enough to city center but far enough to get away from too many tourist attractions. Great little cafes and bars in the area!

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice amenities and surroundings. Also quite convenient in terms of location. Worth the price also. To maximize your visit, stay for at least 3 nights, and don't be afraid to socialize with other guests. Overall, my experience with this hostel could not have been better.

Great staff, great facilities, fast wifi, big bedrooms, very nice living room and a big kitchen. It is also an excellent location very close to the railway station, but still in a calm neighborhood. I really recommend this place!

The staff on reception were lovely and made sure that I knew everything I needed to in order to have the best stay possible. Unfortunately, I only stayed for one night and even though it was quiet I met some lovely people. The kitchen was excellently well equipped and clean. The bathrooms were adequate and the bedrooms were nice. The...

“The best area for the wi-fi is in the lounge. It seems you can get the wi-fi signal in many rooms, but not all because of the thick walls. Overall, it is good signal.”
