stayed here with a friend in july 2013 and it was fantastic. room was clean, breakfast had a good choice and staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. would definitely stay again. although it is a hostel boat it was really family friendly and had a relaxed atmosphere.

Very disappointed bath towels are old, breakfast was not good they ran out of food, would never return, we came all the way from Australia and thought this would be interesting, but avoid it and stay closer to the city centre and avoid, unless your into drinking on the streets.

Hi there, yes, would you believe, we recall when you first arrived and how you were rather taken aback by the area; while the area is safe, we do understand that those who have not previously been exposed to Berlin in all of it’s facets can be shocked at how open and liberal this area can be. Having said that,... More

Edgar Schmidt von Groeling is an Individualist. When he realized Berlin was missing a Hotel ingredient, which is Basic in Paris and other European cities, he bought an old hostelboat anchored in a Rhine river port, took the upper deck off and towed it to Berlin via Inland waterways.Upper deck installed again it serves the purpose meant for near the...

We spent 5 nights on the Eastern Comfort just before Christmas whilst we were visiting family in Berlin. We really weren't too sure what to expect but enjoyed it immensely, we booked one the more expensive cabins as we are definitely not backpackers, it was very good exactly as the website photogaph with great views of the river. The lounge/bar... More

Stayed here for 4 nights around New Year's, after reading all these great reviews here and thinking I had struck gold with this hostel. The price wasn't low, but being end of year and all, it seemed reasonable, especially when everybody was saying what a great place this was. Arrived at the location with high expectations. The area where the... More

I stayed in a 3 bed cabin along with some friends for a weekend in Berlin. The rooms were great for what we needed, however, the bathroom is a little bit of a squeeze! The boat is moored on a quiet part of the river and we had a great view from our window. The staff on reception were always... More

We were greeted with excellent and well informed service, with good directions and a nice personal touch (Thanks for the Glühwein!). The accommodations where better than expected and there was a great tone of camaraderie amongst the guests; both at the lounge at midnight as at the morning table (next to a fireplace!) in the late morning. The hostel is... More

The excellent staff, unique location and quirky style of this property all make the Eastern Comfort a perfect choice for a stay in Central Berlin. Waking to a view of the sunrise through our cabin window reflecting in the Spree is a site I will never forget. Great value breakfast, comfortable lounge and bar area and 5 star service and... More

Turned up a day early but this was no issue for the fantastic staff. Paid a little extra for a first class cabin which is worth it but the second class looked great too. The location was perfect, right by the train station and some great bars/food spots nearby. After noticing the location of a few other 'competitor' hostels, we... More
