We came in at 8 a.m. before check-in and wow! FIrst thing you see is a smiling face and great staff. We were overwhelmed by the smells coming from the restraunt. They place our bags in a secure room.

LOVED this hostel and its location. Unlike other backpacker accommodation, this hostel offered quiet privates, with ample space and stylish furnishings.The hostel itself was fun without being rowdy. The staff had great recommendations for nightlife around the area, as well as surrounding restaurants. We were sad to leave, as it really was the highlight of our trip - GREAT beer... More

I stayed at Pfefferbett twice already. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The decor is very modern and fits the motto of Berlin itself. The staff was little rude and did not seem to be very sure about the information that guests should receive on arrival, comparing it to other hostels. Security could improved as anybody can just walk in... More

Pfefferbett was great, staff were particularly friendly and helpful, and really seemed to enjoy interacting with travelers. I found the staff (especially the blonde woman on reception) to be the best part, so helpful and genuine. I stayed in a 6 bed ensuite room and it was great, very spacious with own lockers, with heaps of space too. Location is... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Pfefferbett. I think the location is great due to the trendy area and the bars, cafes and restaurants located a short walk away. The underground is a short walk through the former brewery complex. The downstairs common room/ restaurant area are cosy and welcoming, especially when the fireplace is in... More

I stayed for 3 nights and it was really nice! The place is conveniently located in a safe and quiet area, 15 minutes away from Alexanderplatz and 25 from Museumeiland, by walking.

Cool refurbishment of an old club and former brewery, very efficient rooms - we stayed in a double room which was airy and bright. Nice breakfast selection for a good price, but take the extra capuccino. Reception was as a little bit laid back but friendly. Central location just next to Subway. Nice cafes closeby! Big drawback: wifi soooooooooo slow... 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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
