As stated in the title, the rooms were unbearably hot both throughout the day and at night. I barely slept due to how hot the rooms were. The Internet wasn't fantastic as it was slow and struggled to reach the room I was in. There were also limits to how long they could be used at a time which can... More

We stayed in 2 separate rooms in this hostel, so I am submitting separate reviews. See my other review of the double room. Our flight was delayed more than 5 hours, so I emailed the reception to let them know we would be quite late arriving. There was a prompt response letting me know that it was okay to arrive... More

This was a more "formal" hostel closer to a hotel instead of a hostel. It's very clean and very new. The complaints I have are with the little things and rules they have. You can't open the door, you can't bring your own drinks in the main lounge area, you can only drink in the basement in the guest kitchen,... More

Great spacious bathroom in the dormitories & very safe locker system. Excellent value for money however it's more like a hotel rather than a hostel and lacks atmosphere... Bar was deserted each night (disastrous for two 18 year olds!) and there were very few opportunities to meet fellow travellers. Kitchen was poor - small & pots and pans were always... More

The hostel is clean and new, so i can say that it has been one of the most confortable i visited. Despite that the atmosphere is quite boring. At evenig and night you simply have to go far from the hostel to find nightlife, so in the hostel the're nobody around. The metro is very close, even though the hostel... More

The hostel is good. There is kitchen for guests and breakfast possibility. Rooms are clean and bathrooms also. It is located just near the station so it is easy to get anywhere. There is a lift in the building and it is the only way to get to rooms, beause doors on all floors ale closed all the time. Moreover... More

Like other reviews tell, it's more like a hotel. The reason why I however find staying here a terrible experience was because of the arrogant attitude of the staff. When one of our friends went missing they were most unwilling to help. After he turned up, being robbed of all his stuff and left outside Berlin they still charged him... More

We are very sad and sorry to read your review about our hostel. We accommodate many international guests with different backgrounds every day, and our goal is to make everyone’s stay a very satisfying one. Our staff is always very friendly and helpful.

The staff are friendly, room was spectacularly clean, more like a hotel than a hostel! Right next to the station so very easy to get around, but not so close that the trains keep you awake at night! Would definitely go back to 2A if I ever go back to Berlin.

This isn't the kind of hostel where you sit around and drink in a common room and use the wifi for hours. The whole thing is situated like a hotel. Its extremely clean, with ensuite bathrooms in the rooms, everything is brand new. The wifi is free but you have to go get a new code every hour, which is... More

I came for a business travel to Berlin and stayed 2 days. The modern styled hostel is generally clean and comfortable and well located directly at the train station 'Neukölln'. I enjoyed the stay, and the service (Internet, Bteakfast, Bar, Safety). The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The breakfast-buffet for 5 Euro was good with everything you need.... More
