Basic, simple accomodation in the heart of Schöneberg gay quarters. Very friendly staff. The rooms are basic, but ok for some days in Berlin. The place is very clean. Shared bathrooms and toilets are no problems. Coffeemachine in the livingroom. Close to restaurants in the neighbourhood. Close to public transportations. The Bananas is not luxury but recomended if you are... More

Don't let the inexpensive price and location fool you. Stayed here from 6/2/14 to the 8/2/14. Although we didn't get the pleasure to meet the owners they were an amazing help whenever needed via email. We were greeted by a gentleman who showed us to our room and explained where bathrooms are and how to use kitchen equipment. Tea and... More

I stayed in Berlin for a week in September 2013 and Bananas Guesthouse is in a great spot, right in Schoneberg. The owner was very helpful (even with his broken English and my awful German) and managed to meet me quite late at night after a delayed arrival by train. There is no reception at the guesthouse, so it's best... More

Once I found the place as street lighting in Germany is very bad, Owners couldnt have been more friendly and the room was more then adequete and spotless and so were the bathrooms and very big too. Hotel is very close to transport links and to the gay scene of schoberg. No hesitation in staying here again, highly recommended.

I've just returned from a visit to Berlin where I stayed at Bananas Guesthouse. Excellent location and accommodations. I arrived late in the evening but the owner still met me and offered me great information on local restaurants, bars, etc. and made sure that I was settled in for a comfortable stay. The Guesthouse is impeccably clean and my room... More

For the money, this is hard to beat. Excellent, clean well looked after rooms. A bit quirky- with inflatable banana in the rooms. Owners very helpful despite me arriving late at night. Quiet yet near all the fun of Schoneberg.

The guesthouse is located on the ground floor of a building. The single room was small but ok. Well located in the gay area. The only problem is the noise at night. Shared bathrooms are large. Good wi-fi connection and living room.

It's a kind of huge appartement with a long corridor where you find a kitchen at one end and many doors each side for private rooms and bathrooms. It is situated In the new gay sector of Berlin. You do everything by walking and the public transportations are just nearby. Berlin has a great Subway network and large sideways for... More

Everything clean and comfortable, almost 4 Star quality at minimum. Friendly staff following you personal needs!
