Comfortable rooms in central Dortmund
We spent one night with our dog at the hostel. The staff was friendly and they gave us a big room so we could be more comfortable with the dog. The room was newly renovated and clean. There are a lo of of near by restaurants. Overall we had a good stay.

Poor 2.0
Nachdem ich schon eine Tourismus-Abgabe Dortmund bezahlt habe, musste ich an der Rezeption noch 2 € "Stadtabgabe" zahlen. Natürlich ohne Quittung... Das Zimmer war oberflächlich sauber. Doch unter dem Bett (mir ist da eine Socke runtergefallen) ist alles total staubig. Seit Jahren nicht gewischt! Blutspuren auf Matratze und Wand. WAHNSINN
