The room I stayed in was generally clean, but basic. The Mehringdamm U-Bahn station is nearby which made the daily commute convenient. There's a kebab shop right outside the hotel door that young people queue (long!) each night. My room was located in front of the road and there can be some noise coming from the outside. The breakfast buffet... More

Stayed here while accompanying a school trip. Location is convenient, with a U Bahn station literally outside. Area is lively, with shops and restaurants. Accommodation is what you'd expect from a hostel, and was clean. Staff were helpful, and food was reasonable. Wifi a bit hit and miss. Plenty of hot water, but tap and shower ran very slowly.

They have helpful and kind personnel however we didn't have hot water at all. Also we couldn't connect to internet from the lobby for the first 2 days, which is the most important thing for a traveller.

The location is good, just a hop away from the Mehringdamm U station. The accommodation is what you'd expect - just basic. If you don't like the idea of a common shower (which you may need to use if there's like 5 of you in the same room, then be warned! Facilities are clean though and there's a bar with... More

Metropol Hostel is a really good alternative for a short trip in Berlin. Lying real close to city center and the main attractions you can actually walk to the city center from the hostel. Another great feature is that the hostel is in the Kreuzberg area - one of Berlin's cultural centers. The staff is really helpful, and the room... More

Place is ok for a hostel. Rest of it was bad. Rooms dirty, a lot of school kids staying there in groups and unfriendly not so helpful staff. We missed a flight and had to book a new one, but the only thing they care about is getting money instead of helping someone. Had to pay a full extra night... More

We were this last week end (my husband, my daughter and I). It's placed perfectly: you have everything near: underground, buses, restaurants of all prices, you can go on feet to the centre (25 minutes about)... The area is beautiful: nice buildings, trees, churches... ideal for walking and discover. But... The problem is if you want to sleep: the 2... More

Hi there, we are sorry that you did not sleep well. Next time when people are too loud, come to the reception and we provide you with earplugs or we can also ask the people to be more quite. We are always happy to help! Thanks for your comment. More

Hostel is in a great location, mere minutes from the city centre. Ubahn station is directly in front of the entrance. There is an unsecured free PUBLIC parking across the street. We were lucky enough to snatch the last spot in the afternoon. Beds are comfy and linen was clean. This hostel is very big and and too few toilets... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
