Reviews (8.4 Excellent)
Nice Small Hotel close to Essen. Large dining room available to play on evenings during Essen Spiel. Very Quiet.
toilet and shower are inside the rooms, not standard for a hostel -> nice. not that convenient from the city center (half an hour with the tram and a bit of walking), but therefore very beautifully seated, near the Ruhr River and forest. very calm.
Basic and clean! Great value for money. Best perk of this hostel: the two beautiful cats (Karma & Kali) who love getting attention from the guests. :-)
The hostel didnt seem really prepared for individual guests, but more suited for groups. The price was exclusive breakfast, which was €7,00. It was a nice breakfast but still a bit pricy. But we mainly had a problem with the staff, that seemed to be not comunicating with each other about how long our stay was, weather we did or did not pay, etc.
Strict rules, but the staff didn´t obey those (smoking in certain places, silence at 22 etc.). Reminded more home of ten children family than hostel. All kind of stuff around lobby, stairway and yard.
