A&O Dortmund Hauptbahnhof

Recent guest reviews

Great location near the main train station and only a short walk into the centre of town for shops and bars. Beds were comfy. Shower room was a bit tight. Great to have the open bar downstairs until late aswell.

A group of 45 (20 adults & 25 kids) stayed here for 4 nights over Easter on a boys U14 football trip to Dortmund. The A&O is a BASIC hostel but it is very clean, within walking distance of everything in Central Dortmund - 5 mins from German Football Museum, the train station & main shopping areas & squares. the breakfast was plentiful & good choice. We didn't eat dinner here. there is a lobby bar with games area for kids - pool table, fussball table & general play area. the staff were helpful. The lift is very slow so not great for being on the 4th / 5th floors. In summary - for the group we were in and what we needed it was perfect for the weekend.

Stayed for just 1 night in the hostel/hotel and to be honest didn't use the facilities so can't comment on them. The staff were very friendly and all spoke good English! The room was very basic and wasn't the cleanest but the beds were extremely comfortable! The location was absolutely perfect for the centre of dortmund and roughly 4 minutes walk away from the main train station and football museum! Great location!

good place to stay in dortmund for the football, a stones throw from the train station and football musuem and 5 minutes walk behind the hotel is the shops and bars. the rooms were clean and had a huge bar area and even a takeaway just outside.

Five of us stayed in a room here for the recent England was large with a separate toilet and shower.. was basic tho comfortable and spotlessly clean...staff were helpful and checking in was no problem....large seating and bar area...would defo stay again

location - very good, nearby tо all points room is warm, clean, bunk and pillow is okay there are not individual charge points and lights bathroom (with shower cabine) is very small extra fee for linens - 3.5 euro

Hotel is quite simple, but has all the necessary equipment. But... No tv channels in English and no kettle. We didn't order breakfast since it was 7 eur/person, so I cannot tell anything about food. Just in perfect location: in the city centre and near train/bus station.

Clean and helpful staff, easy to check in, hostel is in the middle of the city centre over the road and about 200m is the main train station (only 5 stops from signul iduna park). Bar is open 24/7 with reasonable prices. Stayed for 5 nights on my own and had no problem at all, already booked for my next stay.

if you are passing from dortmund traveling by train ,this is a very good hostel and hotel,my room wasnt perfect,but was ok for what i need it...with personal bathroom...and breackfast...only if you a black tv didn't had remote control.

Good room, very clean. Very nice ambient. The bar is also very good and not expensive. The location is very good - near the central statio - and a smart walk from the city center where you can eat or go shopping
