Dortmund A&O is quite close to the city centre, its staff is so nice and its rooms are big. Some bad feelings: towels and sheets were not included (and renting sheets was 3,5€), your own lock is necessary to use the lockers in the rooms and it didn't have a single kitchen.

Everything you need from a hostel - sheets cost extra! Decent place and the room (4-bed) had its own bathroom so that was nice. Internet connection a bit iffy. Great location sort of makes up the entire appeal of the hostel. Nearby food place called Kartoffel-Lord - best kebap I've had and I couldn't believe it was vegan!

The location of this hostel is superb! It is just few minutes walk to the city centre and metro station. Moreover, if you are looking for a place to party, a cool club "Nightrooms" is just few minutes away, too! Talking about the rooms, it is really comfortable (when you consider how cheap it is). Rooms were cleaned daily and...

Perfect location to Dortmund's market square and central location. Both minutes away by foot. Room was clean and premises secure. Bar in hotel lively and open late. Prefect for low budget and if attending Broussia game.

The hostel looked generally good but my bag was stolen in the hostel lobby/reception, which actually works as an open-to-everybody's-access bar. Security is not their strong point. Moreover the employees of the hostel showed very little concern over the whole situation. This happened few days ago, saturday 07/11/2015.

This is the best choice for you if you're traveling on a budget. I got a place in a 6-bed room, but I was lucky enough and had no one else in the room for two days. The room has everything you need, the shower and toilet very clean. I had housekeeping service the next day (I did not know...

The hostel is very well located, it is really close to the central station. BUT because of this location, is it hard to find a cheap paring space for your car. We stayed for one night, the room was ok, there was a seperated toilet and a separated shower as well. Because we just went there because of a partynight...

The room is clean. The location is very close to the train station and the city centre. There are no hand towels, but you can get them at the reception. The pillows are not very comfortable.Wifi is free of charge. In overall it's a nice value for money.

It is a clean place for a budget hostel. I stayed in 6-bed dorm in summer. They have one bottle of soap for you in the shower and at the sink. tissue paper is provided.
