The hostel is situated in quite a fashionable part of East Berlin, and not too far away from the centre. Public transport is about 5-7 minutes walk away. The staff are super friendly and helpful, although it feels a bit more like a hotel than a hostel as the communal area doesn't seem to get used much. I had a... More

The second time I have stayed in this hostel, this time I was in Berlin on my own. They're so welcoming and the hostel is like none I've ever stayed in. Stylish and super cool. Big rooms and bigger bathrooms (that are spotlessly clean and you never have to wait for!) How many hostels give you towels??! This one does.... More

Very clean, calm and pleasant hostel in a lovely neighborhood. Bathrooms were clean, sheets and towels were crispy white. The staff were helpful and friendly. We needed to visit a doctor during our stay and would have been lost with where to go without their help! I would imagine this to be a nice place to stay with children. I... More

Overall I enjoyed my stay at aurora. I found the staff very helpful, I had arranged a late check-in by email prior to arrival and the arrangements went smoothly. I was greeted by Nina when I arrived and she gave me some useful information and advice on things to see and do while in Berlin. I found the location really... More

Great location, very friendly staff, room and bathrooms were clean. Good place to stay if you're on a budget and want to save some money. Just make sure you coordinate with them if you are arriving past 10pm because the staff leaves by then.

The room didn't seem too noisy although trams travel up the street the hostel is located on. The floor I... More

was in Aurora again the other week and I liked it again. Advantage of travelling outside the holiday season is that there aren't as many guests, although the only advantage that offers is that it doesn't happen that often that you need to wait in order to use the shared showers!

I go to Berlin every year for business and always go 'budget'. This was the best yet. Super friendly and helpful. Location just 3 stops up the line from Alexanderplatz. Room small but clean. Shared bathroom very clean and really nice hot shower. Seemed very secure. Very friendly welcome and great value for money. Highly recommend and would definitely return.... More
