I stayed here during the off-season (mid-December), and so it was very quiet. I didn't think that this hostel was very good for meeting other travellers. The substantial and high quality breakfast was the best part (extra fee). internet worked well in my dorm room. The bathroom had two shower stalls and two toilet stalls. However, the shower stalls had no separate component for changing, and so that made it awkward if more than one person was there. Also, the floor became very wet. The neighbourhood seemed fun, but as I was traveling alone and didn't meet anyone, I didn't really have the opportunity to experience it.

Dresden was on our way to Prague so we thought we would look at the old city, and the church they had to rebuild after the serious bombing during the war. We had a walk around, saw some great historic buildings and had a beer. It was a lovely city but me and Roy were both hot now, so we pushed on to Prague to find a hotel.

Also climbed a few steps in the church to have a look at the old city from above!!!
Joined the cycle brigade one day and rode to a village 26km away down the river Elbe. Nice ride although it was a bit hot (the weather has improved and its now 30+ degrees). The town – Meissen – is known for its famous porcelain. And its cathedral and castle!!! Quite a medieval town with cobbled streets. You can do ...
... get lost! Walking halfway round Plzen and getting sweater and hungrier by the minute, beaver finally found someone who could help her. Once the hotel was found it was like stepping back behind the iron curtain! It was like a scene from 1968 Czechoslovakia! The grumpy old bag at reception checked Beaver in with not so much as a smile and printed the receipt on a dot matrix printer! The room wasn't much better either, so deciding to get food, Beaver head out into the ...
... ice room, and fake lake for testing out your newly bought rain jacket, climbing shoes or canoe! A fun day out for the whole family!
One of my favourite things about Dresden has to be the cute little Ampelfiguren (traffic light figures). Male and female figures with hats and pony tails flash gaily indicating for pedestrians crossing the road. Apparently these were born after the war as part of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and are very East German, which ...
