I spent 2 nights there in a private room - in the so-called A&O HOTEL. I had to pay around 50 bucks. The room and its equipment is quite good, you can't deny that. But you are not in an isolated area from the HOSTEL dorms which are located just the next door. So there will be nightly noises, I... More

On arrival to the hostel/hotel I was pleasantly surprised, there is a great shop next door that has good beer at a great price. Would return. I was also very pleased at our room, spacious and fairly comfortable beds, fresh and clean. Do not rent their bikes, I can still feel the pain caused from riding across the city. Also... More

This hostel was ok for the time we were there. Stayed in a group, had a number of rooms around the hostel. Quite close to a major train station which was useful. The wifi was in the main bar area so not in the room and the staff did not seem that friendly. We were on a higher floor and... More

An excellent cheap solution for accommodation in a fantastic city. I'd recommend for a cheap city break, we were there for a stag weekend and this hostel was just the ticket. Bottled or draft beer served from reception and plenty of snacks available. We stayed in the room the top floor and had to climb about 10 flights of steps... More

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights, in a mixed 8-beds-room. Honestly I'm not gonna book in A&O hostels anymore. They're just too big, too many people, you don't really have the chance of getting in touch with other people. They let you pay everything, even the internet on the common computer (30 minutes, 1 euro!!) or the bedlinen.... More

but not more than that. The staff was a bit slow and did not seem motivated, but they got the job done. The room was clean, not too noisy nor too quiet. You knew you lived among other people and that was quite nice. The hostel had a cosy little bar with pooltables and such, but nothing too impressive. Overall... More

This is how hostels should be run. The hostel is in an awesome location in Berlin's best district of Friedrichshain which is an awesome bohemian hipster district with loads of trendy bars, clubs, boutiques and restaurants. The hostel is only 10 minutes cycle from the incredible East side Berlin wall gallery. The hostel is well organized and reasonably priced. The... More

A bit away from city center, but with great connection to the center. Staff is wery kind, hostel is clean and breakfast is average.

My stay was only for one night. I liked the placement. A bit far from everything but very close to the party district and bars. You will however have to walk about 10-15 minutes. Wifi was a bit slow, but the rooms were alright. You will however have to pay extra for sheets and no towels are provided.

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.
