I actually liked this hostel, but personell was not very helpful. Not even one of them! I liked that the hostel is central and that it has a restaurant and a common area with free wifi and games. If it had not been for the staff, I would definetely given a better review. Good for backpackers.

For a hostel, this place is great! The atmosphere of this place was very good. There is a bar downstairs that serves drinks and food. Me and my partner were not keen on the breakfast though. It just wasn't our cup of tea so we avoided it after our first try. Great location. We were able to walk to many... More

The whole time me and my friends stayed there we had no problem at all. The position was really good because we could walk everywhere and the hostel staff was willing to help and always available. The room was simple but clean, it wasn't the biggest but there was enough space for everyone. So to sum it up: I would... More

Good hostel for solo travellers. I stayed in the female 6bed dorm, the room was quite small. The location is great. I didn't use public transport. The price for the breakfast isn't adequate. I paid 7EUR for breakfast, so I expected something more than a small buffet, also you get very small plate. Better, and maybe cheaper is to go... More

Wonderfully located close to Friedrichstrasse, Bax Dax is quite a cool place. Clean, safe, colorful. However, for such small rooms, I would say it's a tad overpriced. Also - the bar closes quite early for a hostel!

Very central location and within walking distance of everything. The hostel is very clean and well maintained with great communal areas and a fab rooftop bar. Baxpax has a very social atmosphere and I would definitely recommend it!

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

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.
