If you like your hotels where you can get little or no sleep, then this is the one. To have groups of youths rampaging down your corridor shouting and screaming for hours , banging on doors and then deliberately slamming them as hard as they can, then this is for you. The staff were nowhere to be seen,probably too scared to intervene or perhaps just disinterested. On top of that I didn't get the room that I had booked, what I ended up with was a matchbox with 2 minuscule excuses for beds,a toilet where you just about sat on and a sink where a shelf blocked any common usage because it was so near. Also a light protruding from the wall at head height near the bed so it was a real accomplishment not to hit it every time you moved in bed or woke it didn't work either. I certainly won't be visiting any of this chains hotels in the future, especially as the amount that I was charged for what I received was a disgrace.

close to city places Dresden Hauptbahnhof and central bus is whitin a walking distance friendly and helpful staff the staff provided any information one may ask and was open to anything one may need to support and help storage room internet clean

Place of choice to stay for exploring of Dresden. Location is convenient, near Dresden Central Train Station, historic city - 20 walk, shopping area - 10-15 min. by walk. Hotel staff is young and very helpful, speaking good English. Just behind the hotel - Aldi supermarket, in front - few restaurants. We visited upper floor sky bar within happy hours (19:00-20:00) - all cocktails for 5 Euro. You can have a seats on small terrace or inside. From seats inside you can not see panoramic view in comfortable way because of partition of windows just on the level of eye. Double rooms are too small, triple - rather OK with separate WC and shower. Good free WiFi connection. The noise from the trains especially at night and early in the morning can disturbs your sleep.

We came at 1:30pm and the staff told us that we would have to wait until 3pm to get the room key. We came and asked again at 3pm and the guy at the reception desk told us that the room was still not ready. When I asked him when it would be ready because I'd been waiting for so long and had already paid for our room, he said he didnt know and he couldnt do anything about it. The thing is I noticed that some other guests who came after us could get their keys already, while we were made to wait for so long (after check-in time) with no clue. And that was not the first time we'd had to wait for room to be ready after the check-in time. I kinda regret buying many vouchers by A&O and I'm pretty sure I'll have to consider the service carefully when deciding on where to stay for holidays.

I stayed at A&O Dresden for one night while passing through from Berlin to Prague. The hostel is just a short 5 minute walk down the road from the main train station and bus station in the old part of Dresden city which makes it easy to drop off your bags then head to central Dresden to explore. The hostel allows you to place your bags in a locked room if you happen to arrive before check in time, allowing for convenience. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm which offers a nice spacious size room, which is clean and well maintained. The check in area also has a bar area where you can buy a morning coffee from, otherwise they have a breakfast area if you looking for a sit down meal. The only issue I had was when I need to change my date of travel and asked to be placed in the same dorm as a friend that was traveling with me who also had a booking, it took quite a few emails back and forth due to me being unable to explain my request in German- language barrier missunderstanding.

The price was very good. The room was clean and there was free wifi. Bathrooms were inside the room and the location is 10 min from the train station and 25 minutes to the historic center (walking) but there are tram/bus stations close. Recommended.

I booked a shared room of 4, the first night I was alone at the room, the next day a young man joined and the third day 3 men. I asked the reception to change me to a female 4 bed shared room and they did it but on the ground floor with a stinky rest room. But only two more women were there. My last night on the hostel around 11, two men rushed into the room and I told them that it is a female room and they went back to the reception. The people at the reception are very friendly but please can you improve your booking system? And clean the rest rooms??

Having in mind we booked it a few hours before our stay and we arrived late at night, we were welcomed by the kind staff and quickly accommodated. The room was clean and spacious, the view is nice. Location - close to the railway station, so very convenient. We stayed only 1 night but I would reccommend it and visit it again if needed. Price was also cheap, the only drawback is that they extra charge you for sheets but other than that it is good value for money.

Good location, good room, helpful staff. We have got what we expected and even more. It's just -7-10 min walking distance from the main station what was very useful for us. Around 20 min to historical part. Supermarket is on the backside.

Overall stay was good. Location is good, about 5min walking distance to the main train station. Warmer and heater were working well. The cleanliness of the bathroom could be better. Staff was helpful and friendly. No complaints.
