“Quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Stayed here for three nights in a six bed dorm in December. Check in was easy, once I had climbed the 100 stairs to the fourth floor. I was directed to my dorm, which was locked so I had to get the owner back to unlock the door. She didn't give me a key. On the second night I returned at around 10pm to find the reception unmanned and the dorm locked again. Had to call the owner to get her to come and unlock the dorm - 20 minute wait. At this point I was given a key.

The hostel was really quiet and sparsely occupied. I suspect if it were busy then the bathrooms would be insufficient - just two male showers for the entire 15 room hostel.

Breakfast was basic - bread and jam, tea and coffee - but included in the price.

All in all, not a bad hostel, but not the best I've ever stayed in either.

Hostel-Posty is everything you could want out of a hostel. They have a chilled out lounge room with a TV, movies, etc. plus a communal computer, and the WiFi worked in the rooms too. They also had a free shelf of toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) in the bathroom too which is always a bonus. The staff were very friendly and the place was clean throughout, and it's about a 10 minute walk from the main train station - I have nothing bad to say about this hostel whatsoever!

Not too expensive, friendly receptionist (she may come off stern but shes really nice, took the time to help me find where my Grandma lived.... and how to use the buses.) Unfortunately there are no lockers but the place is trustworthy. Breakfast is pretty simple.

Shared a twin private room here for two nights and was more than impressed. Friendly welcome, spotlessly clean although a little dated in places, comfortable bed and help yourself anytime to tea and coffee. Only issue is its on the fourth floor with no lifts. Wasn't a problem for us but maybe for the less able. Central to town, railway station and main tram stop.

Nice hostel not too far away from Bremen central station. The single rooms are very basic with a small bed, a washroom sink and a linoleum floor. Overall the whole place looks and smells a little bit like a hospital.
The quality of the mattresses varies greatly: I once had one of the worst mattresses I ever had to sleep on, but the bed on the second stay was much better. Rooms facing the courtyard are quiet, rooms facing the railroad tracks can get rather noisy. If you are travelling on a budget this is a great place to stay.

Watch out for the crazy receptionist woman who thinks she can speak both English and German but can actually speak neither. Apart from that it's a fine place to stay except for the lack of lockers. I asked if there were Schränke and she pointed me to the kitchen.

Really easy to find just take tram number 6 from the airport to the Hauptbahnhoff.
Before I arrived I had to amwend my booking a few times and Hostel Posty were always helpful and responded quickly.
Nice, clean, good condition, centrally located with friendly mixed international clientele. It wasn't noisy when we were there (late September). Our private twin shared facilities room was basic but ok and did have a sink.
The mens and womens toilets and showers were seaparate and the mens's were clean.
There is a pc free to use and free wi-fi near reception (just ask for the code).
'Breakfast' is basic but they don't claim anything else. It's help yourself to bread, margerine, jam, tea, coffee, sugar. There is also a fridge, freezer, hotplate, etc. so you can easy make your own food whenever.
As mentioned there are steps up to it but no problem to anyone who is reasonably fit.
The walk into the old town takes 15 mins or so.
Overall we were happy there, I am happy to recommend it, and would be happy to go back.
Although next time I would also consider staying near Steintor as there were a few more 'cosmopolitan' bars and eateries there.
