Obviously when staying in hostels you get what you pay for and you're not expecting luxury accommodation or great facilities, but there are two things you should be able to count on: helpful, knowledgeable staff and a friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately, this GastHaus has neither.

The guys on the front desk were polite enough, but seemed utterly disinterested when we showed up and when we asked them to show us a map of the town only pointed out the station and the town centre... we could have found those ourselves, but wanted to know what to do / see in Bremen! There was no point in hanging around the common area either - the whole place was totally dead.

The rooms were spartan, even by hostel standards. The beds were fine, but we were asked whether we'd brought our own linen... I've stayed in dozens of hostels and never been expected to provide my own bedding. There was a strange odour in the room - not awful, but definitely unpleasant. On the plus side the rooms were clean and the bathrooms and toilets were attended to every morning.

At €20+ a night, this place is way overpriced. I've stayed in nicer hostels in similar economics for half that. We may as well have paid a few euros more and got ourselves an Airbnb.

If you're desperate for a bed in Bremen then you'll be okay here, but I'm confident that almost anywhere else would be a better choice. Shame.

We got a 6 people mixed room for a 1 night stay, room was really spacious and bright! We were there in a period when it was not crowded, so everything was really clean. They provided lockers to store our luggage and we brought our own sleeping bags, one of us got a linen for 3 euros. The common spaces were really neat and clean as well. Overall, we did not spend much time there, but it was very comfortable. The only drawback was there were only shared bathrooms that had no doors, so showering was not pleasant.

Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms, clean toilets. but, I do not like the common showers, they were not good enough for privacy.
Good for young backpackers, low budget travellers - because it is clean, cheap and very central.

It was a last-minute decision to go to Bremen and this was the only hostel available, but I did not enjoy my experience. I stayed in a dorm for 6 people.

Positives:
- room was spacious
- single beds instead of bunk beds
- there is a relatively large kitchen as well as laundry facilities; there is also a living room/lounge area
- clean bed and bedsheets
- close to the main station (7-8 min on foot?)
- city center also within walkable distance (20-30 min)
- strong wifi

Negatives for me were:
- located in a shady area. The walk from the station to the hostel was especially shady and scary in the evening.
- facilities (shower room and washroom) were not very clean - hairs in the basin, and floors also did not look clean
- security could be much improved: 1) there are not enough lockers in the room for the number of beds. You have to ask for a locker (5 Euro deposit). The locker assigned may be located in the public hallways, 2) the main entrance to the hostel is locked but not the individual dorm rooms- anyone can come in. My dorm room was located next the public lockers and WCs, separated only by a thin glass door (noise was very audible).
- no shelf to put anything in the WC and in the shower room, and it was a challenge to balance belongings (i.e. change of clothes, towel) on the sink to avoid putting them on the floor
- the hostel requests to keep a piece of important and current ID (passport or driver's license) as a deposit for the front door key- if one refuses to do so, will be given an option to put down 50 Euro as a deposit instead
- not cheap for what it is (works out to 23 EUR) for the night since bedsheets not included in the listed price. I have had much better experiences in hostels in Germany, some of which were even less expensive.

I would find another place to stay if I visit Bremen again.

Dear Tomatenu, thank you for sharing your experience with us. Maybe for your next visit one of our hotels might be a better choice for you. They're belonging to us and are located just around the corner. They offer more privacy and luxury. Looking forward to see you again.

A supposedly cheap accomodation...? We'll, it,s not if you consider the price/quality ratio.

The good things... close to the train station ( 7 mins walk) and the city centre ( 15 mins to the Old Town).

But the area is scary, weird people and shops around and the entrance to the hostel is a bit isolated. I definitively would not dare to walk in here in dark-winter time.
Noise from construction works ( also during night time) close by and noisy people coming in and out the hostel during night.

The rooms are spacious but there isn't the slightest chance for some privacy as you are at plain sight ( and exposed to others snoring, etc) of other 5 beds and their occupants.

Showers are mouldy and to be used by 4/5 more people at the sane time. No show of gel or even soap.

Bathrooms are grungy, kitchen and living room have this general sense of mould everywhere...

Plus the terms of the hostel and the way they are imposed : you are required to leave your ID or an abusive fee in order to have your key, even considering they make you pay in advance, even when they have your credit card details.... ( moreover: leaving your ID plus your credit card details to them?!?!).

Stay away from this place.
