Bad hostel... never again and highly not recommended! - Not friendly personal (I was planning to stay longer on the same hostel, but the personal just simply says 'sorry no room left' and he was not even watching on his calendar!) and not friendly people (I guess I was unlucky). So, I changed hostel in my last 2 days of... More

I was there with a friend in Sep 2014, it was a really really nice place, not on a loud street, in the heart of friedrichshain very close to the bridge that connects to kruezberg and some major clubs and bars locations around. the private room was roomy, with a nice big window, the bed was a bit squeaky (but...

Everytime I come to Berlin, I stay in this hostel. It's one of the cheapest (€9/day in a 6 beds room; they have other options btw), and all the employees are really friendly and nice. Coffee, breakfast and fruits are available all day long. The kitchen and the bathroom are very small but ok. And what about the location? It's... More

Backpacker is a really nice hostel with friendly and welcoming staff and clean rooms. Although it's not located directly in the center, the neighborhood is really cool (lots of small bars and restaurants). As the name says - ideal for backpackers! I would definitely go there again.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
