Second time I've stayed in the last six months. Travelled in a group of 6, were all impressed by how nice it was. Clean, great prices and the bar was an added bonus for us all! The staff were all very helpful and we were even able to keep our luggage in the lockers for hours after we checked out,... More

The lockers were kinda flimsy but they did... More

I went with my girlfriend and had a nice stay in a twin beds room. It was comfortable and clean, and exceptionally located. The breakfast ofr 4 € was also a good option. Recommended for groups of friends who want to explore the city inside out.

In Mitte and less than two blocks away from the metro, it's strategically located in one of my favorite parts of the city. Rooms are big, clean and have a lot of light, staff is nice, common areas are cool. All these for a good price: a great option in town.

We stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and we will go back! Very clean, friendly and the best location!! Free tea and coffee available all day, 24 hours reception, 24 hours bar, wifi in the rooms, all that for a great price! There is not doubt, whenever we go back to Berlin, we will be staying there again!!

These guys are pretty bloody rad, we got there and was kinda disappointed that we didn't get a double in the three bed private room we booked on-line (2 bunk beds instead!). Anyway I didn't phase us to much as we love Berlin and have never stayed in this hostel before.... It's clean, friendly staff, great cheap bar, nice surroundings... More

Now don't get me wrong, I loved the hostel! Creatively using the theme of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy to make a really fun little hostel. The positives: 1) It's like the cheapest hostel in Berlin 2) Great location; right in the city center! 3) Fun staff who were always ready to help There were a few negatives however: 1)... More

Free coffee, tea all the time. Wifi only works in the lobby. No laudry. Clean and comfortable bed! Location is very close to city center and metro station! Note: you have to pay 0.5euro per 30mins to use computer in lobby and it doesn't work very well.

Very helpful staff, clean rooms and very nice bathrooms. Excellent place to stay on a budget. Very close to the metro and walkable from Hackescher markt and the Museum Island. A nice atmosphere as well.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
