A&O Dortmund Hauptbahnhof Reviews

A&O Dortmund Hauptbahnhof is a huge hostel that is able to offer low-cost beds for travelers. Friendly staff check guests in and out, whilst also serving drinks and snacks at the reception/bar.

The Location

The hostel is located within a five-minute walk of the Brugmannplatz Station and ten minutes from the Dortmund ZOB Bus and Coach Station. It’s also really close to the German Football Museum, an Art Museum, and the Konzerthaus Concert Hall. There is a launderette one minute walk away, a big bonus for travelers needing to wash their clothes.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bedroom has only two bunk beds, making it a calmer space compared to busier rooms. It has a small, private bathroom with a shower; it's clean and bright room with the only grievance being a wet floor caused by the room's other guests. The room has a table and chair by the window, and two plug sockets (one for each bunk bed). It has four large lockers (one for each roommate) with a latch on which you can use a small padlock.
Outside, the bedrooms are hallways that are quite spooky due to the subdued lighting; it’s reminiscent of the hotel in "The Shining."

Common Spaces

The main common space is a huge area connected to the reception desk. It has a pool table and lots of seating, including a large six-seater table with eight plug sockets attached to it. There are two vending machines available if guests fancy a snack that’s not available at the bar. The bar itself has many drinks and there are a few widescreen TVs playing sport channels. Suitable music plays at a respectable level.

There is a small outside area with two sets of tables under canopies and many chairs. There are also some deckchairs too, ideal for a lazy day in the sun.

There is a dining area downstairs where guests can feast on breakfast if they choose to pay the fee. There are many options at breakfast, including bread, butter, jam, ham, pork, salad, cereal, muesli, fruit, and tea and coffee.


This is a perfectly fine hostel with a large reception area; it's ideal for socialising with friends. It offers more than enough for a pleasant stay in a good location at a reasonable price.
