Hostels in Dresden

If you are planning a short trip to Dresden, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money on a hotel room. Hostels are a very inexpensive alternative and are hardly inferior to many hotels in terms of service and facilities. On the contrary: most hostels even have a communal kitchen where guests can cook for themselves.


The Cityherberge in Dresden’s old town is a hotel and hostel in one. Those who value privacy can stay in the spacious private rooms with their own bathroom, TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi. Those who prefer a more sociable and affordable stay are best accommodated in the somewhat simpler hostel rooms with shared bathrooms. All guests can help themselves to the delicious breakfast buffet every morning. Guests can also use the communal kitchen at any time. In the hostel bar, you can find a large flat-screen TV as well as hot and cold drinks. If the weather is nice, you can also enjoy a beer on the terrace.
