Enjoy my cozy place in a calm and green environment. It is located close to the city centre and Bochum stadium with great connections to public and private transportation. The top floor apartment has two rooms (one bed room and one living room with kitchen area) as well as one small hallway and a bright bathroom with window.
Entering the apartment you will walk through the hallway into the bright living room with its cozy couch and the stereo sound system (DVD, CD, phone connector, radio). You may also use the modern kitchen: sink, refridgerator and freezer, stove and oven, microwave and hot water boiler, coffee maker and sufficient dishes.
In another room you will find the bed with a comfortable mattress, high-quality frame and anti-allergic blanket and pillow as well as the work station (free WiFi, sound and monitor available, no HDMI).
The bathroom is well equipped (including a small hair dryer). Only the bathtub may be tricky: While it is perfect for bathing, you cannot shower in a standing position due to the diagonal ceiling above your head. However, all my guests were satisfied with the available solution so far.
The house lies in a quiet street with a great connection to the city centre. With public transportation you can easily reach Hauptbahnhof train station, RuhrCongress, Rewirpower stadium (all within 5 minutes) and Ruhr University Bochum (within 15 minutes). The Autobahns A40 and A43 are nearby (as well as A42, A44 and A45).
The other way round you should use the tram from Hauptbahnhof train station. Descend two levels from the lobby to the underground tram station and look for lines 308/318 to Gerthe/Schürbankstraße. Exit after 3 stops at Stahlwerke and across the street you will find Matthias-Claudius-Straße. Turn left into the pedestrian passage and arrive at II. Parallelstraße.
If you come to Bochum with a car, use the A40 exit at Bochum-Stadium. Turn left into Castroper Straße on the first lights after the roundabout, then left into I. Parallelstraße and right into II. Parallelstraße (yes, these parallels cross). There are free parking lots in front of thy house.

Again, staying at Fabians' place was very nice! I enjoyed the area and the apartment, which was clean and is well equipped with everything you need. Very practical, a good mattress and silent. The contact with Fabian is more than pleasant. Highly recommend a stay there!
Fabian place was fine! You get what you book: A cozy, small and tidy apartment which is located on a quiet street. Parking on the street is no problem. Staying with Fabian - who was a friendly and helpful host - is really recommended! Thanks Fabian for the nice week!
Die Wohnung von Fabian ist wirklich sehr gemütlich und bietet viel Platz. Es ist außerdem in der Küche so ziemlich alles vorhanden was man so brauchen könnte. Leider hatte ich viel zu wenig Zeit um das zu genießen.
Fabian war sehr zuverlässig und hat sich bereits vorher um eine reibungslose Übergabe bemüht, was dann auch ganz unkompliziert funktioniert hat. Danke!
Come to Bochum to support my mother with operation. Flat is near hospital, that was vital for me. Its cool but there are some points u should keep in mind:
- it has no iron, u should have one
- no clothes wash
- perfect free wi-fi
- coming in October and far, the first one u should do-switch heater to maximum :))
- specific shower, its supposed to bath
- great sound system
- the door downstairs is opened by the same key.
Fabian's apartment was excellent! It was close to public transportation and close to the Bochum football stadium, while still well within a cozy, quiet neighborhood. The apartment was very well-kept, and had a feeling of home about it. It's a great place to come back to and relax or as a base for exploring the region. And on top of all that, Fabian offered a fully-stocked fridge of beer on arrival. You can't beat that! Thanks again, Fabian. You're the man.
Great apartment and very nice contact! Simple and easy access to public transportation. The apartment was very clean and silent and I had two good nights sleep.
Die Wohnung ist in Top-Zustand. Ruhige Lage, aber nur fünf Minuten von der Bahn entfernt. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen = )
I'm a Psychology student from Bochum in the beautiful Ruhr Valley, Germany. Experiencing airbnb as a host gives me the chance to support you to travel in a light and individual way. I love to get to know the different ways of how different people live in the different places of the world.
Some of the amazing things I was lucky enough to see: Jumping hunchback whales off Nosy Boraha island in Madagascar and the glacier view from inside the hot springs of Hveravellir in Iceland after one week of hiking the highlands.
