The only good thing about it was the location. Dirty, no reception whatsoever, smells horribly, atmosphere is super weird and it's everything but welcoming. I guess that you get what you pay for, but I wouldn't come back never ever.

I have never felt more uncomfortable. Slept directly head to head on one side to an old weird guy (the weirdness of course isn't the hostels fault but the head to head thing is) and head to feet to another. Room was dirty with old, really disgusting carpets and don't let me even start to tell u about the kitchen.... More

Price and location are good, but here comes the truth when you get in there...atmosphere is quite weird and not welcoming at all. There is a real lack of cleanliness, smells of dust and we realized that they do not change the bed sheet which covers the mattress, so I had the pleasure to sleep on someone's else bed sheet...

This little and primitive looking hostel was all over the place. The prices are way too high for the room and bed you get. We stayed in a dusty and dirty room, very very cold. The shower was weird, couldn't use it. The worst part was the noises; I couldn't sleep because the common room was right next to our... More

We stayed here for one night in june and thankfully not longer. When we wanted to check in at 6pm nobody was there and we had to wait 40 min outside until a very grumpy man checked us in after charging us for linen and city tax (as we were tourists)! So in the end it wasn't as cheap as... More

This hostel is in an excellent and central location - 5/10 minutes walk to the city centre or alternatively there are lots of trams within walking distance if you want to go further afield. There is also a street of restaurants 1 minute from the hostel if you are in need of food. The shower was lovely and warm. However... More

Really isn't much to say, except it's cheap and seemed like a safe place to stay in a good central location in Bremen. It's only 10 mins walk from the city centre. Shower was inconsistent with temperature (turned ice cold after being boiling hot) and you had to hold the shower in your hand (tricky). Can't really expect luxury for... More

Given the prices, I think this hostel is okay. There's a nice lounge with TV, couches, free wi-fi, board games, a hot drinks vending machine and some useful travel brochures and the general atmosphere is very quite. Plus, the hostel is very central, not far from the railway station and the city centre. What I didn't like: the mattress was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Southend Hostel Bremen moved - We now are in the old part of Bremen. We are in the middle of the center and the night life ! To the main station one can run easily to foot and to the airport you needs as before only 15 min. We are in the old part of town, one of the most beautiful quarters in Bremen, with a lot of entertainment possibilities like shopping, cubs, restaurants, culture and of course relax at the riverside ("Schlachte")! This and a lot more you will reach in few minutes on foot! ... more   less
