I visited Berlin on a weekend when it may have been somewhat warmer than expected. One pedestal fan was provided for all four beds in the room but unfortunately that fan got colonized by the group of three people who were already inhabiting my room. On the top bunk it became very hot and uncomfortable to sleep without help from... More

Stayed in the dorm room. The place is new. The ground level is a lounge with plenty of chairs, tables, and a small bar with decent prices on a pint (€2.20). The dorm room was full and had enough room for guest luggage. I don't worry much about locking up my used shirts and dirty underwear, although that seems to... More

The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful I didn't get a single smile and after I tried making conversation with them, they replied with 'and?' As if it's not allowed to talk to them. I don't understand why you would work in hospitality if you don't like people. Everyone else I talked to had a similar experience. Otherwise the place... More

I booked 4 bed dorm. Lovely bunks, comforable mattresses. However, room very small, no place to put luggage or hang clothes or wet towel, no hooks, no shelves, nothing. Drawer under the bunk is one huge drawer for two persons, so no security. Bathroom has no shower curtain, so water all over the floor after shower. No place to put... More

I'm on a 'fishing expedition' as a speaker at the Energy Procurement Summit in Berlin and as my time is gratis I'm keeping costs down with a stay in the Smart hostel, Wilmersdorfer Str. The only thing that gives it away as a hostel is the dorm rooms (private rooms are available), other than that it's a clean and tidy... More

Stayed with my friends in a room with 8 beds but without any neighbours :) Room had it's own bathroom. Very clean and nice. Friendly staff, 24-hours check-in is possible, good location. The only thing: wi-fi connection must be not so good, at least on the top floor.

If possible, I would give Smart Stay Hotel Berlin two and a half stars. It was clean, in a nice enough neighborhood, and tastefully decorated. However, it's not centrally located, doesn't have a great atmosphere, and the staff were downright rude (and I'm not someone who is easily offended.) Because of the location and unpleasantness of the staff, I wouldn't... More

Nice hotel, very well allocated. Close to the subway, major retail shops. Good cafe around the corner . Money for value is good. Room cleaning must improve. WIFI free. Beware : new building under construction across the street. Not too noise.
