The location of the hostel is quite good, near to the train station and plenty of eateries. The price was average and the room was OK. Poor wifi signal in the room and squeaking bed frames were the negative sides. The staff were not as passionate as we thought but they were quite helpful though.

I had read mixed reviews on this hostel and the main complaint seemed to be that the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. Our welcome to the hotel was the opposite, we were greeted with a smile, a smooth check in and some very useful advice. The downstairs area of the hostel is really nice - cool decor and great for...

Great atmosphere and location, clean and well put together. We were upgraded from the 30 bed dorm to the 5 bed, which was nice. Wifi was good. No kitchen facilities but easy to find a cheap food option. My only problem was the unexpected extra taxes/charges, as it was my first visit to Berlin I wasn't aware of them. I... More

This place has a very good location, perfectly acceptable rooms in terms of size, cleanliness, bathrooms etc., okay staff, and a good bar... but it's not got that feeling of 'lets go chill in the hostel before we go out'. You feel slightly uneasy within the place like your stay doesn't matter, they just want your money and for you... More

I am still so shocked and appalled by my experience at this hostel. I came with a group of 4 friends and we stayed in a 5 room dorm thus we had a new person in the 5th bed each day. That was no problem as it was nice meeting new people. However as we were checking out we were... More

The location was perfect as it was so close to the main train station and also to Alexanderplatz so had many good connections all over the city and was especially great when we had to get an early train to the airport. The room was clean and nice but there was a mix up as there was 4 of us... More

We arrived at Baxpax not really knowing what to expect as neither of us have strayed in a hostel before. The place is really clean and well laid out with an absolutely great location! Lockers are provided for luggage storage (if you arrive early) , although there ain't that many so you got to get lucky if the hostel is... More

If you are just looking for the classic hostel experience and want to hang out in the lounge/meet new people, this is the place for you. If you want good customer service avoid baxpax at all costs. The staff was incredibly rude. They constantly chat with each other and seem irritated when you arrive at the desk to ask a... More

I stayed in the hostel for 5 days. The location of the hostel along with it's environment and atmosphere were everything that I was looking for. The rooftop bar is cool, along with the back garden area and "playground". If you want to stay somewhere with a cool young environment with an opportunity to meet some friendly and interesting travellers... More
