As we stay during summer peak (early August), it was very hot. Felt like inside an oven when you stays in the room between 9 - 20, even with the windows open. No AC, not even a fan. Although the room was very clean and equipped with new, functional furniture, it was small and has little mobility area. Apparently, the... More

After arriving after a 12 hours of travelling we were met by a pig of a man who promptly told us we weren't allowed to use debit cards to pay for our room. This was however, rubbish, as a sign on the reception desk stated that cards were accepted but a charge would be incurred. We therefore had to walk... More

We are a couple that travel a lot all over the world. But never did we encounter anything as bad as this one. There is absolutly no service at all. I ended up taking my rubbish and dirty towels to reception and picked up clean towels from there as well. When I asked for another pillow at reception they gave... More

Excellent location, only a few minutes walk from the central train station of Berlin and is within walking distance of iconic attractions such as the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate. I stayed in a twin private en suite, which was very clean, with soap provided in the shower and sink. The downside was there didn't seem to be any organised events... More

We've stayed at a&o for the past four nights. The day we got there, we asked if we could extend the stay for one more night. The receptionists were decently polite , but often short with us while trying to work this out. It wasn't so bad because we just thought it was a language barrier issue. The people at... More

I visited this hotel a couple years ago. I was stayed in this hotel for awhile before I got apartment in Berlin. Because, at that time I think this hotel is one of the nearest hotel that located not too far from Hauptbahnhof. Basically, the hotel room is quite clean and the price is very affordable for backpackers. The receptionist... More

The hostel wasn't too far from the main attractions such as the reichstag, it was also very close to the main train station. We stayed in a 8person room which was a bit cramped but bearable. The curtains did nothing to stop the light coming in so it was pretty bright in the morning. The room had a few bunks... More

Pretty well maintained and clean. Ideal for students travelling on a budget. Great internet packages and lovely staff. Would definitely target any A&O in the future! Bring your own pillow cases, bed sheets and locks!

We arrived in the A & O Hostel, Berlin on 17th July 2013. This was the second stop on our interrailing adventure! We got a bit lost trying to find the hostel which led us through a slightly dodgy part of Hauptbahnhof. However, when we arrived at the hostel we realised that the location was excellent, it was our mistake... More

Very expensive rooms! Average hostel with extra high prices.I mean 30 eur per-person in a room with 8MIX people with such average service is expensive!
