“High quality hostel”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

My partner and I only stayed here one night, but were very impressed in that short time. We stayed in a 16 bed mixed dorm, which (expectedly) was a bit of a tight squeeze, but thanks to the room design individuals have a decent level of privacy. Linen is provided free of charge, as are the lockers. The beds were comfortable and the room was dark - very important when there's 24 hour sunlight!
The common area and bathrooms are amongst the best I've ever seen in a hostel. Both are clean, spacious and modern.
To top it off, the staff were super friendly and helpful.

I had to find Dream Hostel from city centre and its storefront sign is not that big so I wandered about in the street for a while. But its facility was good and person in the counter was so nice to all customers. Now I got my own flat here, Tampere but if someone visit here to see me I will recommend Dream Hostel :)

Dream Hostel is an advanced hostel in Tampere, with nice techlogy and utilities. Staff is friendly and kind. The position is just perfect, close to the station, to the centre and to the lakes.

I can say that there is a lack of space, rooms are just too crowded. But anyway, still possible to have a nice nap, since the bed are strong and not horrible as most of the hostels.

I had some problems with one girl of the staff, since i noticed the shelf on the bed was broken and she just didnt care, letting that shelf broken in that way... disturbing my feet while I was sleeping. She forgot as well to tell me about the deposit key box, and i didnt use for 2 nights, then when i understood i could have it included in the price, i had my key. Other people of the staff were friendly a lot, and all the hostel is well clean and the kitchen is comfortable and wifi strong.

I usually avoid hostels, but Scandinavia is expensive! I booked a bed in a 10 person room for my husband and i. Perfect stay. Clean sheets. High walls between beds for safety and privacy. Showers clean. Good kitchen area if you want to cook. This is a great deal.

When we arrived one night earlier before the booking, ( at 3am ) we still got perfect service! We were warmly welcomed to stay and got all information we needed.

Interior is just perfect! Beds are in perfect condition, you are offered to use kitchen with all appliances, dishes, free tea and coffee + bread and some additional stuff. There is small library with all you'll need to have great time :) Table games, dictionaries, different kind of books etc. There is always some music playing around there and it is just perfectly selected. It creates relaxing atmosphere and lets you work on your reading or any other activity without any distractions. Wi-fi connection is not the fastest, but good enough.

Beds are perfectly clean and fresh, when you arrive. All beds are separated from each other so that you are in your private territory. Also, there are personal lamps on each bed. You can get a locker for a coffer, if you want one. The only issue is power sockets in rooms. If you want to plug in your phone or laptop, you have to unplug someones lamp.

Staff is super friendly! Just amazingly friendly! We could solve all problems that we had. Even when it came to payments, we could combine card and cash without any problems.

I am quite sure you won't be able to find better place to stay in Tampere for the money ;)

Room Tip: Room #1 has its own bathroom.

I visited twice in here, first as a turist and second time as a student, so that should be best ad for this place. The staff was very friendly and gave me ibuprofen as a felt sick. "Arrangement of beds in 16 bed dorm room is very good and that allows to feel yourself like in private room" is true. Great investment for 22 euros!

The best hostel ever! Staff are very helpful and friendly. Very clean and well equipped hostel. Great design and comfortable furniture. Arrangement of beds in 16 bed dorm room is very good and that allows to feel yourself like in private room:) If only all hostels of the world would look like the Dream Hostel!
