This is a fantastic hostel. It's conveniently located 5 mins from Warschauerstraße S-Bahn station. The staff are friendly and helpful. The common area is beautifully decorated- it's a great place to chill out and have a beer at night too. Breakfast was delicious and you can have as much as you like. It was a little bit noisy at night... More

For what I paid (averaging 20 pound a night) I felt the accommodation, customer service and general ambience was above and beyond what I expected and received. The staff were more than welcoming with bright smiles and forthcoming with their knowledge of the city. Their comfortability with being happy to help as well as simply being there resonated throughout the... More

This hostel was well placed to be the perfect place to crash for those partying and seeing alternative sights in Berlin. Fun and helpful staff who gave the perfect advice on where to go based on our interests, decent breakfast, close to the metro station.

The location was about a 10 minute walk from East Side Gallery, so can't complain about the location! Also close to a train station, so the city was easily accessible. The room was big and the bunks were fine, however there was only 2 bathrooms for the whole floor! There were no separate toilets, so you had to wait for... More

I stayed in this hostel for 5 days in October and I would recommend this place. PROS: The atmosphere was really good, and for me it's a real backpackers hostel because it was easy to meet friendly people (and it's not too big!). The location is great, the neighborhood is really vibrant and dynamic, there are plenty of bars and... More

Nice rooms and wall art all around the hostel, cheap breakfast - all you can eat for 3€, friendly staff and good location. If you are into clubbing, that is the perfect location. There is Warschauer strasse (alternative clubs), Berghain and Watergate all in the walking distance (cca 5 minutes). Definitely reccomended! :)

Good location and easy to find! Good and efficient service at reception as well! I was in and out in a jiffy as i only stayed a night. I suppose i was also lucky as it was midweek and a quiet night. Was exhausted but i managed to sleep through the night even though i often have "strange bed insomnia".... More

Upon arrival I was greeted by super friendly staff, was set on wifi in minutes. Went to my room set up and made my way to the lovely bar/ lounge downstairs. The atmosphere is great lots of cool fun people here. Amongst Berlin's clubs, minutes walk from the train. Walk to the Berlin wall. Restaurants bars also within a short... More

Well located, good prices, nice bar/reception and really good atmosphere. The only handicap, no kitchen facilities (at least they offer a fridge where you can leave some food if you wish). In summer the terrace seems a really nice spot to have a drink (I went in winter so I couldn't enjoy it...)

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
