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

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...)

My wife was to show me Berlin, and a friend recommended Sunflower Hostel in the old East Berlin neighborhoo of Friedrichshain. It was quite easy to find, six or seven stops S-bahn stops and a five minute walk from Berlin Hbf. The reception upon arrival was kind and helpful. No complaints there. The next evening when we came back from... More

Was recommended this hostel by a friend. And I admit, he's five years younger than me, and maybe that made all the difference: Pros: Clean Cheap breakfast, only 3 euros and quite a nice breakfast. Close to warschauer str. Station. If you're in your 20's and what to party all night, this is the place to be. Cons: Slow wifi.... More

Only stayed for one night, but had a very sociable atmosphere, with a great location very close to a major train station, and the East Side Gallery berlin wall! Would revisit! Great pricing too. Great for lone and group travelling. Free use of internet too!

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Clean and cheap. Definitely worth the money. The location is great, lots of bars and affordable restaurants nearby. If you travel alone, this is probably a good place to meet new people.

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.
