Great at atmosphere, I made some great mates in the bar and poolside!! BUT if you stay in the big k studio be prepared for little lighting. It was dark like a dungeon with no fire escape I could see. The room though huge was on the most part completely silent! Good or bad you decide! No toilet in room... More

Travelling on a Budget I look for three things in a hostel: is it a good Price, good Location & is it clean? Baxpax Downtown in Berlin got three big ticks from me! The staff were extremely helpful and the bar Service was great too.

Me and two friends were immediately overwhelmed with how modern and up-to-date the interior was of baxpax. A very cool, relaxed and friendly atmosphere with social rooms which makes it VERY easy to make very good friends here. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, very clean and absolutely no issues. Had a lovely stay, would highly recommend it and would definitely... More

The best thing about this hostel is the location which is why I'm guessing that it is quite expensive. I've only stayed in one hostel before in Madrid which was awesome, so perhaps my expectations are a little high, but for the price I was pretty disappointed. There wasn't any particular thing here that was really bad but a whole... More

I've only stayed in hostels in Amsterdam before, which were worse than bad, so I was apprehensive about staying here. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a nice lady, who was very friendly, explained everything we needed and told us where our rooms were. The rooms were very nice. I stayed in a room of 5, and the beds were... More

I recently visited Baxpax Downtown Hostel Berlin as part of a large group for a stag weekend. I have never stayed in a hostel before and had low expectations. It was booked for me and I was quietly dreading spending a weekend in communal accommodation. How wrong could I be? The hostel was ideally situated for sightseeing in Berlin, immaculately... More

Entering the hostel, it is very cool, urban and clean. You think, wow great location, great hostel! If you are planning to stay in the 30 bed dorm, beware of the fact that they do not inform you before that THERE IS NO MAIN LIGHT. Yes, when we asked this our reply was: "It is too aggressive to have a... More

really good location in the heart of berlin and a fun nice hostel. no a/c so it got a little hot. wifi worked well downstairs, not amazingly in the rooms. the staff is not very friendly or helpful. there is a restaurant in the building that looked pretty good.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
