Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Great location, great apartment with view on the Frauenkirche. Although it is right in de hart of Dresden, at night it was really quiet. Parking is great, cheaper than the public parking garage. The apartment had a lot of space and a great bath. I really enjoyed the stay. Did not use the breakfast possibility at 5start hotel, but I am sure this would have been nice as well. Dresden is a beautiful city and this place gives you the opportunity to fully enjoy it.

    The hotel is in a great location, situated halfway between the main train station and the historic centre. It was very quiet as we came just after all the Christmas markets had finished. The rooms were clean and comfortable with hairdryer, tea and coffee and a safety box.

    This was my first time staying in the hostel dormitory and I was worried about the allocation of beds, but the hostel had already arranged everything. The bed was soft, the pillows and duvet covers were very clean. The bathroom and toilet in the room were also very clean. All in all quite comfortable. The location is excellent, 5min walk from Hbf Dresden, very convenient for travelers.

    Fantastic atmosphere, really great for getting to know new people on your trip; fun and creatively arranged, a very artistic and laid-back place; free coffee and tea; located in a funky district. If I were to point to the perfect youth hostel, this would be it.
