Very comfortable bed and super clean room and shared bathroom. The staff were also very helpful with info on how to get from place to place. The hostel is well located with many good eating places nearby. Good value.

I've stayed in this hostel twice, most recently back in July. It had been five years since my previous visit and I was pleased to see that the standard had not slipped over the years. The hostel located in a trendy part of town with an alternative, boho vibe, filled with quirky shops and plenty of restaurants and bars. Links... More

Aurora hostel was the perfect place to set up camp for a weekend away in Berlin with a friend/partner. The staff are great, the Hostel is in a great location - really close to Eberswalder Strasse U-Bahnhof and also Konnopkes Currywurst stand.... Which is a must. I really enjoyed my stay. So much so I've booked to go again next... More

The hostel was very attentive (access and reception) and supportive (finding a nice restaurant). Both the room and the bathroom were well cleaned.No noise disturbance during the night. The area is nice with lots of restaurants and coffee shops and acces to Berlin centre quick and easy.

Not much to say that hasn't already been said. My room was on the third floor, I was pretty happy that when I checked in the man at the front counter offered to carry my bag up! Quite the workout. A bit worried about the thin walls, tram on the street below and shared bathrooms in the morning. None of... More

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

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
