We stayed in Pfefferbett hostel for three nights. We shared an 8 bed dorm and all the people that we met there were really great. The wifi is totally rubbish. You can just about use it in the lobby/reception/bar area but take 2 steps towards the residents area and you're in a no wifi zone. Most of the staff were... More

Pfefferbett is a good hostel in a good location. It is in an old brewery therefor I thought it would have been quite interesting to stay in, but the interior doesn't have much of he original interior so it lacked charm and personality. There is a grocery store within 5 min walk and the pfefferbett restaurant and small beer garden... More

Stayed in this hostel for a couple nights, while the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable there is no wifi available outside the lobby. This was quite inconvenient as I had some things I had to do and sitting in the lobby for a few hours in the afternoon with club music playing can get a bit annoying. The wifi... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
