Conveniently located west of the city center just 150m north of the Bismarckstr. U-bahn station at the junction of U2 (to Berlin center B. Zoo and Potsdamer Platz, especially useful now that the cross-town S-bahn is under repair in 2014) and U7 (20-30 minutes door to door from hostel to TXL airport via Jacob-Kaiser Platz and X9 bus).

This is both a hotel and a hostel. I stayed in a private room and several members of my group slept in dorms. Everyone in the party left with very good impressions, and with a feeling that a place to stay in Berlin was found for future trips. Good underground connections and also a good breakfast. Wifi was hard to... More

The hotel is new, nice and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are good and the rooms are what we expected in this price range. The WiFi however is really bad. Connection from the lounge is acceptable but in the rooms it is unusable. The lounge is cozy and nice with music and chairs / sofas. The... More

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
