Spent 5 nights here and had a really positive experience. Hostel is well located and easy to reach from the airport. Very clean and lots of air and light in the rooms (really makes you appreciate how much of a difference high ceilings make). Staff were helpful and the reception is very well stocked with information on the local area.... More

Loved this hostel! The staff were extremely welcoming and told me a great deal about places to go and places to eat ect they seemed really enthusiastic and genuinely glad to be there which was great. It felt really homey and there were nice tables to sit at inside and out. Closely located to the metro.

I was in a mixed 4 bed dorm. Not sure if they have male and female separate rooms or not. Bathroom facilities really good. Wifi a bit touchy at times. Clean hostel. Friendly staff. Very noisy on a Monday night due to something in the hostel. Would stay here again. Lockers in room also, and no bunks. Single beds, brilliant.

Amazing support from a friendly staff (whats exactly you need while backpacking), great location, neat rooms and washrooms - this is a good pick for those who want to explore Berlin for 2-3 days. Simply one of the best hostels I have stayed in Europe.

A short walk from a bus stop, which comes directly from the airport or main-station it is easy to initially find. Once we arrived we were welcomed in by a really friendly receptionist, who instantly gave us a map of the city highlighting areas she thought we would like given our age and interests. Really quaint and friendly little bar... More

It was great to pick this hostel. First of all it is in a very convenient ubication, just beside a metro station, then, you find a very friendly staff willing to help you about what to do in the city and around, and finally, you find a nice room with the best bed to take a rest. Dont think twice... More
