So the rooms were basic but cleand and totally alright for the price. There are a lot of showers and toiletes. The top of the bunkbeds are just without security so you better don't move to much during your sleep. The staff on the other hand is kind of strange. They have a stricte check-in at 14:00 and even if... More

We enjoyed our stay. The hostel is nice and clean, and the price is very reasonable. There's just one thing I didn't really like - the pillow was so flat that it could not have been there at all. And if you're there for a weekend, be sure to have some earplugs, cause there's a bar underneath some rooms and... More

Stayed with two friends here for a weekend in March (all students). Had a great experience here - everything was very clean, staff very helpful with directions and they were fine with us having a late check-in (about 23:15). Location also great in a cool student-type area. Would definitely recommend!

You get what you pay for - cheap rates, basic rooms and communal bathrooms. It's a bit grimy, a bit noisy, and old, but it's safe and relatively comfortable. If you're happy to backpack, it's a great option. There are lockers for your valuables, a kitchen, hot showers, heaters, and a common room. Perfect for crashing on a night out,... More

Great location very close to s and u bahn stations, as well as a number of supermarkets, restraunts and bars. Staff were helpful, common area was comfortable, beds were comfortable, rooms were clean although a bit noisy as it is right next to a Main Street. Overall I felt very safe and happy in this hostel.

Only the bare minimum was available at this hostel. It's not in a great location (it's above a loud bar), the sheets were torn, the staff was incredibly rude, you couldn't lock the bedroom doors, wifi was only available when sitting in front of the front desk. Just stay away.

I stayed at this hostel with a colleague seven nights over a two week period, and I would happily return. It was very clean, tidy, very quiet (despite the area) the staff were very friendly, had a kitchen with fridges, pots/pans and utensils provided and, in general, the hostel had a very cool and chilled out feel to it.
