Hostel Mondpalast Reviews

Hostel Mondpalast is located in Neustadt, a party zone. This is apparent when arriving during the night. The base level is a restaurant/bar with the higher levels being the large dorm rooms.

The greatest thing about this hostel is the large kitchen and dining areas on the above floor. The rooms are spacious and give a good vibe due to the decorative wall and ceiling patterns. The building was obviously well thought out and in a prime location for the night folk.

We offer you 24 hour reception service, no curfew, a big breakfast buffet - all you can eat, a big self service kitchen. In our bar we have internet access, every day happy hour. The stuff on our reception gives you lots of advices , tips and help to have an amazing stay in Dresden.
Hostelz Staff Reviewer

Hostel Mondpalast is a basic hostel in a decent location, worth a look if you're only staying a night or two.

The Location

The hostel is centrally located in the heart of Neustadt (the New Town). Getting from the bus station is a relatively easy walk. Just turn left down Dr Friedrich-Wolf-Strae and the second street on the right (Louisenstrae) will lead you straight to the hostel. If you're coming from the central train station, take the number 7 tram and get off at the Louisenstrae stop. You can buy a single ticket from the station or directly from the driver. There is a large shopping centre close to the hostel and also small night shops. The hostel is in the heart of the drinking/shopping district, so you will have no trouble finding a place to eat and drink (except on Sundays, when most things are closed).

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms consist of a mixture of both bunk beds and single beds. There are large school-type lockers in the room, which fit a small backpack as well as other personal belongings and valuables. There are also tables/chairs in the room as well as a decent amount of power points to charge electronics.

The toilets and showers are separate; the toilets are quite small and cramped, while there is plenty of room in the shower area. In the showers there is a small stool and hooks for personal items. However there are no shelves in the shower for other shower items. There are no bath mats -- the floor in the shower area becomes easily flooded. Another negative is that there is a large window in the shower area and neighbors to the hostel complex can easily see into the bathroom.

Common Spaces

The common spaces are adequate but the furnishings are as dull as the atmosphere. The kitchen is essentially fully equipped, with the exception of an oven; it's generally adequate to prepare basic meals. There is a small combined dining/common area. Wi-Fi is included in the price and works in the rooms. There is a cafe/bar below the hostel where guests may chill with the public, and guests are given a voucher for slightly discounted drinks. Having said that, there are plenty of decent bars and cafes on the same street.


This hostel lacks all of the facilities that make other hostels excellent. If you're after a bed in a quiet location, then you'd have no problems staying here.


Good place to stay

good location, friendly and helpful staff, clean, all you need is in the in kitchen, free internet.


The hostel is easily find and is about ten minutes' walk from the Dresden-Neustadt station. The floors is well-decorated and so is the room. There are lots of cooking utensils in the kitchen and you can cook by yourself. The room is kept in very good condition and the heater works very well! The toilets are clean also. The hostel also offer high-quality food and drinks with a reasonable price. That is very good to stay in such an excellent hostel with this reasonable price! I love Dresden and enjoyed so much my stay in Mondpalast! Thank you for the nice staffs again!

Great place to stay. Clean, good beds and prices were good, too. The walk to the center is not too bad. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's one of the best hostels I've stayed at.


Great hostel, plus it has a very excellent location at the edge of the hippest street in town, Louisienstrasse. There are ots of cool bars and restaurants nearby. Don't go anywhere else! It's super clean and super friendly, too.

Our first impressions of Hostel Mondpalast weren't great. The supposed "24-hour reception" didn't really come through for us when our bus was late getting into town. We didn't get to the hostel till 5 a.m., and we had to sleep in the doorway on the street for 2.5 hours before the cleaning lady grumpily allowed us to wait inside for check-in at 8 a.m. After this excitement, however, the rest of our stay was excellent. The reception staff were helpful, and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. We made heaps of friends, encouraged by the spacious dining room/lounge area, and a busload of Italians who cooked us pasta and went out dancing with us. The location was great, within easy walking distance to good bars, clubs, etc. They had the best souvlakis down the road, too. I would definitely recommend this hostel. (Oh, and you have to hire bikes in Dresden - six euros for the day from the train station Neustadt. It's the best way to see the city!)


Cheap, nice rooms, friendly receptionists, nice kitchen and dining area, just a great experience.

Hostel Mondpalast Reviews from the Web

It is perfect. Maybe the only problem is that they have only one bathroom on each floor.


A pretty good hostel experience! Its an older building, so do not expect new modern amenities/rooms as they are pretty old with no air conditioning. That said the bar is very nice and it does tend to get lively at night so its a good hostel to meet others. It is also in a very bar-centric neighbourhood with lots of food/drinking options. That said, it is VERY far from the old town of Dresden which is the cities biggest appeal. Therefore, expect to walk a good 30 min just to get to the downtown core


Great staff and good spot :)


Best hostel bathrooms Ive ever seen. Awesome bar and common area downstairs, rooms were awesome, would have loved to stay longer!


I could feel the hostel's consideration through the design of bathrooms, there were abundant hooks and shelves with them (sounds simple and basic? not at all in many hostels), which was so rare and therefore impressive throughout my journey. Maybe it just takes a cozy bath to make long journey better.

Nice staff, facilities and location.


Lovely social athmosphere with the bar downstairs. Staff friendly and conversational. Showers are AMAZING and rooms nice and clean. Would definitely recommend


Nice hostel with wonderful staff. They really keep the hostel fun and include everyone. Comfy room also


I recommed this hostel. It's located far from Denver center but easily accessible thru publi transportation. Located above a pub which is not that noisy but surrounded by a intense night bars and mini restaurants. The street is the center of highly active night young people habitat, which makes it noisy. For a peaceful night sleep, avoids rooms which windows face the street. Excellent, abundant and fair price for the ALL YOU CAN EAT breakfast. In hot days air conditioning is missed.


Everything was great, except for the microwave not working.


Awesome hostel for a younger crowd. The staff were super cool and ended up making friends with a good lot of them by the end of my short stay. The location is a bit of a walk from the town centre, however it is placed right in the action of the all the bars and whatnot so if you are young its perfect. The hostel itself even has a bar. When I stayed they even had live music so whats not to like. Would totally come back again.


Loved everything about his place!


Very good hostel to stay in Dresden. I'd definitely stay here again. Victor from the staff was very helpful!


This hostel was great!! The staff, the location, the atmosphere, wow! I just wish they had laundry facilities but otherwise, it's the place to stay in Dresden!


Mondpalast is great!


Nice, laid back hostel with a good social environment.

I wouldn't call it a party hostel, but thats what I prefer.

They had live music performances both nights I was there and they were both very enjoyable.

Location is nice and its close to a lot of restaurants and bars. Its about a 20-30 minute walk to the restored historical center of town. The place was super clean and the facilities are well maintained. Nice kitchen!

Paid breakfast is decent. I had a nice stay.

Staff was great!


Real travellers place


Staff were very helpful and friendly. All the facilities you could want, a well-stocked guest kitchen. Nestled in a neighborhood with so many restaurants, cafes and bars, the perfect location. 2 minutes walk to a supermarket also. Only complaint is that the beds are fairly squeaky so people moving around at night might wake you. Common areas including bathrooms were quite clean, but the floor of my bedroom was rather dirty. Not a big deal, overall this is a great hostel.


Overall, a very nice hostel. There are some hidden fees for linens right off the bat. It's also quite loud outside as it's a busy, party street.


Great Hostel, friendly staff and great coffee! Fantastic area around the place with great bars and cafes! Lovely soft bunks and airy rooms....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Except the location of the property is a bit far away from the train station, other things are pretty nice.
