Excellent cleanliness, service and value for money. Short walk from the main railway station and in the heart of Dortmund. Bar in reception open till late. Perfect if visiting Borussia Dortmund. Wouldn't hesitate in visiting again.

Very expensive for what was basically a back packers. Location to the station and town centre was excellent. Noisy at night had to have window open as very hot and no air conditioning. Being an older couple this was not ideal

The hostel has due to its very central location a lot of potential and advantages, but hospitality and cleanliness are two foreign words. Just because it’s a hostel doesn’t warrant it being neglected.

In opposite of Bahnhof and nearby the city center on a short walking distance. Nice large lounge with a bar. Good rooms: clean and good bathroom. Reception open all day. 1 table with wall outlet for laptop and telephone. 1 table is maybe not so much.

I booked one night in shared room (6). Hostel is 5 minutes walk from a station, where are also shuttle buses to airport, operating each 30 minutes. Stuff was okey, shared room was full, but decent, comparing to prices. The thing that surprised me is that I had to pay additional fee for bed sheets (who is bringing his own sheets when staying at the hostel? )

A&O is a great place where you can stay. It's a perfect mixt beetwen a hotel and a hostel. Prices are accesible to almost all travelers. I was very happy with this stay with them (in their second location)

I needed a room for a long weekend, to see Borussia Dortmund play. I took a single room for 3 nights. It was basic & clean - perfect for what I needed. The location was excellent - close to the Hauptbahnhof, and the Stadtbahn to reach Westfalenhallen. The Lobbybar was handy for a beer or a coffee, and the lobby was a great area to relax. Certainly, this will be my first choice for a return visit to Dortmund.

For the price and location you cannot argue. We stayed for the football and would recommend the hotel if all you want to do is dump your bags / sleep. Bar was good for after the football. Closer to a hostel than a hotel.

very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, very close to the city center and shopping area, close to train, bus and metro station so one can reach every corner of the city. Check in is somewhat too late at 3:00 pm, it would be nice if it would have been possible to check in sooner.

Stayed for 2 nights in a double onsuite room. The room was small but clean with free soap and shower gel. The choice at breakfast was good. In reception there was a 24 hour bar with a pool table etc. The hotel was good value for money.
