Stay at a&o youth hostels with no membership: the flexible way to discover Dresden

Unlike the youth hostels operated by the German Youth Hostel Association (DJH), you don’t need to be a member to stay at our a&o youth hostels. With a&o, you pay only for your overnight stay and any additional services you may use such as bike rental and our activity programmes. The a&o Dresden Hauptbahnhof youth hostel is located in the city centre and perfect for school trips, families, backpackers, and groups. In addition to our large and modern rooms, which we always offer with the a&o Best Price Guarantee, you can also do your laundry, host meetings, and buy tickets for other activities. Our friendly staff at the reception desk are there to help out whenever you need it – day and night. Relax from the stress of travelling in comfortable shared rooms at the a&o Dresden youth hostel, fuel up at the optional breakfast buffet, and then get to know the Saxon capital and its sights. The landmarks of Dresden are only a stone’s throw from our hostel.

Excursions in and around Dresden: activity programmes for school trips and family holidays

To make sure you (or your fellow travellers) don’t get bore during a school or family trip, we’ll gladly suggest some activities on request. Back in the hostel, guests can play table football and billiards or, if relaxation is more the order of the day, watch some Sky Premium TV or surf the web with our free high-speed internet connection. Our friendly staff looks forward to helping out with recommendations and information. If you need a larger space for your school class or group, you can use the meeting rooms at a&o Dresden youth hostel. You can also rent bicycles from us to embark on an active city tour. We will be happy to help make your group stay at our a&o youth hostel as varied as possible.

We’ve also got your catering needs covered: our youth hostels offer an extensive breakfast buffet in the mornings for 7 euros; children up to 6 years old get breakfast free of charge, from age 7 and up it is half price, and young adults aged 18 years and over pay the full price. For groups of 10 or more, we also offer dinner (by arrangement). If required, we can prepare packed lunches for you for 6 euros (there is a 50 cent discount for groups of 10 or more). These include a sandwich, fruit, confectionery bar, and a drink. Our snack bar is always there for you if you're feeling peckish in between meals.

Please let us know how we can help you plan your upcoming stay at a&o Dresden youth hostel. If you are interested in our activity programme or are looking for recommendations for excursions to theme parks, zoos or museums, bike tours, for some information on transport connections, and much more – we’re happy to help!
