If I'll visit Berlin in future, I'm sure where to stay :) I stayed in a mega dorm, but I was more than satisfied with the services. The cleanliness was good, the staff was supportive and internet access was free for the guests.

It is conveniently located near downtown Berlin. The price is quite affordable, and facilities are nice. The bathrooms are not quite nice, though. The shower curtain was almost gone, and some cleaning was needed. Nothing actually disgusting, just some cleaning. If you have a card from a prior customer your receive a small discount. They have a shared kitchen, which... More

The location of this hostel is amazing; we didn't use public transport at all during our stay since all the sights were within walking distance. It was also well placed for the Hauptbahnof and very close to Friedrichstrasse station and the train to Schonefeld airport. There were some minor issues such as a very squeaky bunkbed, not particularly clean bathrooms... More

Definitely recommend staying here if visiting Berlin. Good price. Loads of facilities, heart of Berlin Mitte, reasonably priced open all hours bar, large courtyard and great music. Very near a main station @ Frederickstrasse. Free wifi. Single beds, no bunks. Spacious lockers. Free coffee. Plenty free maps and flyers. Nice staff.

Great location for sightseeing and good staff. Dorm rooms were ideal and not too noisy and the bar had a good atmosphere. Only issue was the state of the Wifi, very slow and does not reach dorm rooms.

Stayed for 4 nights in this Hostel and I must admit I was not very satisfied. First of all, the general cleanliness is very poor. Toilets are absolutely disgusting and seem to get only a superficial clean once a day. The rooms are also quite drab and the sheets really seem dirty. One could say "Well, for the price you... More

Bedroom was clean with decent beds and lockers (bring your own padlock). Good bathrooms with very powerful showers! The main selling points have to be the fantastic central location, and the very sociable bar area with good music and cheap drinks! Staff were fun and helpful with a 24 hour reception.

Stayed for 3 nights in the 'Mega Dorm'. This really is as the name suggests as there was around 20 other people staying in that dorm with us at the time. Everyone is very friendly and the staff speak good English which is fortunate, with a 24H reception. WiFi is free and is in the reception/bar area. You can't however... More

Even though the lack of wifi in the room was an hindrance the atmosphere at the reception/bar was amazing were people from different countries just sat together and had an amazing time. Room was really big plus the bathrooms were massive and importantly clean.
