We stayed there for 3 nights, at the first night two guys really strange with no luggage entered and slept in our room, when I woke up and went to tell the staff in the reception about it no one gave us attention. Some hours later they discovered that these guys had stolen a computer from other guy on our... More

I know the sunflower since 10 years. The atmosphere is great, the stuff is very nice, the breakfirst is more than ok (for that price!=, the rooms are nice and clean. nevertheless it's simply a real hostel. no hotel-comfort (that should be clear). the bathrooms and showers could be a little cleaner.

Showing up off the train nearby, the Sunflower staff had me checked in quickly and was helpful in answering a few travel questions. The Hostel is easy to reach from Berlin Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof with no tricky changes on the S-bahn.( stop Warschauer Str). The neighborhood has many handy places: supermarket, vegan shop, food stalls of all types and gives... More

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

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.
