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.

I stayed at this hostel in August, 2012 while on my excursion. At the time I didn't really mind, but since my taste has changed with time I certainly wouldn't recommend this hostel. None of my friends liked it! We were situated in a room for 4 people. The beds look like you're in prison and not in hostel. Maybe... More

although this is not a 5 stars hotel, the individual and double rooms of the hotel are brand new. the bathroom is just perfect, with all comfort, and everything is very clean, in the room as well as the bathroom. the price/quality ratio is simply unbeatable! i highly recommend it for city-breaks and week-ends with friends. but also for young...

I've lived in many hostels, so I don't have high standards, but this was probably a bit below average. I was on a school trip, so I do not know of the exact price of the rooms. I stayed in a 8-people room. Good things: - The breakfast. Your average breakfast buffet with bread, cereal and fruit. You eat it... More

Please if you're reading this, do NOT go there. It's the worst place I've ever been to. The staff is terrible and shouts at all the kids. Also no lifts. Food: had diarrhea next day Location: long walk to the trains Rooms: WORST PART. I know it's cheap but it's inhumane! Disgustingly dirty and small do not go there. There... More

We stayed in the hotel part of the complex for a boys trip to Berlin. The rooms were clean and functional. They weren't huge but were very reasonably priced. There were lots of places to eat morning & night on the way to the train station so we didn't have breakfast in the hotel. Plenty of bakeries, cafes, bars and... More

This hostel has everything you could need when travelling - big dorms, innumerous showers, clean bathrooms. It's quite big though and doesn't really have the backpacker vibe as there's big groups staying there all the time. But all in all, it's a very good hostel.

Easy to reach from Ostkreuz station. I stayed in a private room. Everything in the hostel is clean and breakfast is cheap and very good. There is a common place with a bar where you can sit and relax during the day. In the evening there are too many big youth groups (school, sport clubs etc). I also read it... More

Slow staff, checking in took 15-20 min per person, while one staff member goes around shouting at tired travellers. We got a room in the 4th floor, and there were no elevators avalible. To get to our room we had to walk 96 steps! No air-condition, bad matrasses, we had to carry our sheets up the stairs and put it... 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.
