Staff was awesome (thanks Jenni and Francesca!), common area was always buzzing, and the bathrooms and kitchen were AMAZING. Location is in a good area and is right next to the U or S train if you want to go anywhere. Looking forward to coming back!

The location is conveniently close to an S-Bahn stop in the fun area of Friedrichshain which is full of bars, clubs and restaurants. Despite the freezing temperatures the hostel was always toast warm, the facilities clean and rooms quiet (though I was in... More

Stayed at the Sunflower Hostel over New Years with 4 friends in a 5 bed mixed dorm. Hostel is well located - only a 5 minute walk from the S-Bahn station and from there it's only a 10 minute journey in to central Berlin. The Freidrichshain area has lots of clubs nearby including Berghain which is just down the road... More

Interestingly decorated, artistic, clean, friendly hostel; dreamy shower room; lovely staff; great breakfast for €3; perfect location for those wanting to go out at night; social atmosphere; liked the apartment-style dorm rooms; overall brilliant experience. I've stayed in Berlin previously and this is certainly my favourite hostel.

Great atmosphere and staff - they play great techno at night. This club is 5 min walk away from Berghain if you want to go... 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.
