Dream Hostel has hotel rooms as well and I stayed in their hotel room for two nights with my boyfriend. Breakfast was included in the price which surprised me because the room was already so affordable. This hostel/hotel offered everything I needed; basic breakfast, beautiful rooms, great location and quiet sleeping space. I was so pleased with this hostel/hotel and...

Liked: - Comfortable big bunk beds with bed light, lots of sockets to recharge your mobile devices, a big locker and partition walls between beds for privacy, you'd almost forget there are other people in the room! - Superb showers with plenty of hot water and separate stalls for privacy - Cosy common room where you can share stories with...

Very nice place. Everything is close. They even have bike rental (15€ the whole day). Very helpful staff. If i ever come back to Tampere, I know where to stay! :) If you like breakfast, then they have amazing variety for 6.50€.

I really liked the style of this hotel, it was a bit like a designer experiment. I stayed in one of those rooms without windows, which was fine. There was a slight smell of wood which made it feel like a summer cottage. My room was clean and simple and almost two small. However, it was ok for one person...

The service of the people at the reception is very friendly. They helped me to find a meeting space that was needed for our congress. They explained and gave information about the walking trips. The rooms were clean. It is better to stay in the female dormitory than in the mixed dormitory because the beds are better equiped with light,...

The aptly named ‘Dream Hostel and Hotel’ is a dream indeed! The hotel part upstairs particularly has an indelible charm to it. Finnish design, very modern and with the lovely, strangely charming (albeit subtle) smell of wood. To add to the authentic experience, the staff were typically Finnish (a compliment, I might add, as they’re my kind of people!) -...

I stayed with friends in the 'hotel' part of the hostel, in one of the twin bed rooms, and I have to say I was very happy with the accommodation, it was very clean and functional, everything you'd expect from a visit to Finland! It's located a short walk from the centre of town with a supermarket, bars and restaurants...

Located about a 5 minute walk from the train station, I stayed in the hotel part of the building (the building is divided into a hostel and hotel) I mean this in the best way possible, but it feels a bit like staying in hotel designed by IKEA.

Hi and thanks for your review! Just to let you know, nothing upstairs is bought from IKEA, except some kitchenware :) I have contacted the building management company and we are fixing the air vent problem!
