Myself and partner stayed for 2 nights july 2014 in a private double room. The room was clean and good enough size. The staff were helpful. Hostel offers laundry washed and dried for €5 within 24hrs which was great. Only negative would be no aircon or fan in room (although we didnt ask reception so may be available for them)... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - although it was not like we spent excessive amounts of time here. one of the best bits was the centrality of the location which, in a big city like Berlin, is really REALLY handy. we were able to do nice walks and find food etc quite locally and cheaply. the wifi was quite...

I stayed here in a private room for 3 nights and found it pretty dirty and gross. Me and my boyfriends sheets had long black hairs all over them and mine also had a big clump of hair down the end which made us not really want to sleep in the beds. My pillow was a joke and could barely... More

The hostel had wifi which is a big bonus for me and a bar open 23 hours a day! The room was nice enough, though there was no aircon and was really warm weather. The showers were a bit of a pain as they required you to keep having to press a button to turn them on but they were... More

We stayed in a private room. The room was spacious enough but the bed was terrible. The pillows felt like that have stuffed 5-6 pairs of socks into a pillow case and tried to pass that off as a pillow. The sound proofing is almost none existent and anyone walking up and down the hallways either on your floor or... More

Clean and modern hostel. Bed was comfortable however I was on a very squeaky bunk. Fairly quiet in dorms but the walls are fairly thin, some noise from a group of school kids running about but nothing bad. Only issue I had was no kitchen or included breakfast. I did not feel the breakfast buffet was worth €5.50 but there... More

Stayed for two nights in May. The hostel is quiet enough, clean enough and decently run. Not terribly friendly, but not unpleasant, just efficient. Our twin room was cheap, clean and in fairly good shape. The only recommendation I'd make to management is to add a few horizontal surfaces, especially near outlets and sinks!

Except for once, every time I went to Berlin I stayed at this hostel for various reasons: friendly staff, free wifi (though it does not reach the rooms - or at least all of them), clean and neat rooms and a great breakfast. Organic and local products are not that common to find at your usual hostel breakfast. The location... More

Staff are friendly, rooms were clean although oddly set out. Each bed has a power socket which is helpful. Showers are excellent! Toilets and showers are all clean. Breakfast is not worth the €5.50 though.

Very centrally located near a lot of attractions. Very affordable accommodation. We stayed in a private double room which had a reasonable amount of space and suitable furnishings. The showers and toilets were clean, with plenty of hot water (although the shower pressure could be better). Wifi worked very well in the bar area, but very patchy while in the... More
