Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The room is clean but plain: white textiles and light wood might give off a clinical vibe. So many power outlets, I counted eight and then two more in the bathroom!

Service is lovely though, nice receptionists and I overheard how the receptionist asked a couple their breakfast wishes for the next morning, since they were to be the only customers! Basic breakfast, but served its purpose. Glutenfree options were well available when requested.

The hotel room itself is quiet, but not fully dark: dim lights behind the ceiling panels stayed on the whole night above the door. They didn't bother my sleep though, perhaps prevented claustrophobic feels since there wasn't a window :)

It's one of the places with better Value in Tampere. The double rooms are quite small but clean. Breakfast is good and the staff is friendly. There's not a lot to complain about (for Hostel standard) but the thing I did not like was that there was some kind of air ventilation in the room which was quite noisy and we were unable to turn it of. I had to sleep with earplugs as I found this noise quite annoying. Other than that I can recommend this place..!

The staff at this hostel/hotel is the kindest, friendliest, and most hospitable I have ever met. The rooms are small but clean, and the location is very convenient. You will not find amenities like desk or TV but if you only care about having a cozy and quiet place to spend the night, that's your place.

I was staying for two nights with my daughter on the hotel side. With very high expectations especially for the service - as they advertise on their website the best service on the world and they understand the needs of travelling families.

Honestly, I would like to like this place more, as you can still see some hints of the idea of the founders. Unfortunately the service we got was below average - not really bad, but not good either. Certainly not what advertised!

We had double room for two, and it was really small. The bed is appr 140 cm or even less, so this information I would expect to find from the room description (for hotel double bed I would expect min 160 cm). The room was also very very small, of course the other areas (kitchen, lobby etc) was compensating it a bit. Unfortunately these areas were not cleaned even once a day, so they were bit untidy. It’s nice idea that guests will vlean after themselves, but not really working in total.

Also there would be room to improve the cleaning of the rooms - there were plenty of dust and sand in every place, where possible. With proper housekeeping and more thorough cleaning would give a small facelift for the hotel rooms.

The staff was friendly and the breakfast was simple but good. Location was excellent and the room was clean. However, even though we were in the hotel side, it didn't really feel like a hotel but a hostel room with our own shower. It is a cheap option but it's also a bit underwhelming. The hotel/hostel is really near the moomin museum so if you plan to visit it then that's a good choice. They also have a great selection of board games in the common room/breakfast area! Keep in mind that the walls are rather thin and the soundproofing quite poor so either don't shout or hope you have quite neighbours.

I think this hostel is not comfortable for families with small children. There are no toilets in the rooms. The shared bathroom is shared with the whole hostel, it includes five one-shower cubicles. The upper beds are not safe for small children... Otherwise the place is ok, especially if you are young and don't spend a lot of time in your accommodation. The breakfast was good. The location is excellent. The parking lot is convenient. The overhaul looks good, but unrefined.

It was advertised, that the hotel has parking spaces. We didn’t get one although we asked for it. The suite was small and the it had no windows. Price was high when taken into consideration that it didn’t include breakfast. The location of the hotel is good.

The hostel staff were nice and the place was fairly clean. The location was perfect for me. Sounds went through the walls like they were made of paper. Your experience will depend on how loud your neighbours are.

My partner and I only stayed here one night, but were very impressed in that short time. We stayed in a 16 bed mixed dorm, which (expectedly) was a bit of a tight squeeze, but thanks to the room design individuals have a decent level of privacy. Linen is provided free of charge, as are the lockers. The beds were comfortable and the room was dark - very important when there's 24 hour sunlight!
The common area and bathrooms are amongst the best I've ever seen in a hostel. Both are clean, spacious and modern.
To top it off, the staff were super friendly and helpful.

There is nothing I could have wanted from a hostel that Dream Hostel didn't provide.
I stayed in a four-bed women's only dorm and it was spacious and extremely clean. Beds were very comfortable, other travellers were friendly. The location is amazing, right in the middle of Tampere.The communal facilities are great.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Tampere that is close to everything for a low price, Dream is the way to go!
