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. It... More

I stayed in the Instant Sleep Backpacker Hostel in March 2012. The hostel was clean, quiet and quite centrally located. My two friends and I stayed in an 8-bed-dormroom which was quite clean and with several lockers you can use free of charge (bring your own lock). I slept next to the windows, and at times there was a bit... More
