We booked a room at “Hostel near the Brandenburg Gate” in Berlin for 3 nights from August 07.2014 € 162. I received the confirmation email shortly after booking at 6 minutes after midnight on August 7. We arrived shortly after 13.00 because I wanted to show my friend around Berlin. Actually Wilhelmstr. 48 is almost a kilometre walk (800 m)... More

Overall, this place is not bad and the location was very good. However, we were misled about the occupancy - we thought that we had exclusive access to our floor / apartment, when actually we were sharing with other people. The hostel manager had her office in our living room, which is a bit weird. Also, they tried to charge... More

This hostel is a mere medium sized flat whereby most rooms were converted into suites - the service is horrible: the person did not speak any English nor German and is never there - we had the same stinky towels for 4 days - the location is noisy: downstairs lies a restaurant with loud early morning truck deliveries - it...

The Brandenburg Gate Hostel is an amazing Hostel for people searching low budget accommodation with excelent conditions. It's really close to Brandenburg Gate so you are close to everything that matters in Berlin.

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.
