The hotel (& staff--who spoke English--big ++!!!) was very nice and helpful. Close (5 minutes) from CentrO mall, which is why we were in the area.
Only downfall--on the pictures of the hotel, I was expecting a room with the beautiful bathtub! I had packed my special scents and everything! When I inquired, I was told that the tubs were in the newly renovated rooms, of which they did not have any available. Now the room we had was very nice..just wanted the tub instead of shower! But I would stay again--I"ll just request a "newly renovated room w/bathtub!"
Pleasant staff, both smoking and non-smoking rooms, one converter for laptop from 220v to 110v in room helped, Internet service good (might have issues getting phone or multiple devices online), seemed clean, no complaints, up to North American standard, breakfast choices and taste of food excellent, would prefer mini fridge in room.
All I was looking for was a nice place to sleep at a reasonable price. That's exactly what I got and more.
Staff are welcoming and polite. The room is very clean and comfy with great aircon.
I was a little disappointed that breakfast was extra at €17.
Overall a nice stay at essen.

Since this is hostel, towels and soap,shampoo are not provided. You can "rent" towels for duration of your stay for $Euro 1.5 so cost is very reasonable. I was provided with mini shampoo/soap bottle too but it maybe a good idea to bring it with you.
Stay included breakfast which was pretty good. No warm dishes but buns, bread, cheese, cold cuts, youghurt, etc. Much better than say Continental breakfast in US.
This place has sauna, pool and other facilities. Also mini-bar downstairs.
Very good experience for the price.
