“Favorite Berlin Hostel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is one of my favorite hostels, ever!. It is a bit hard to find, but I enjoyed that! It is huge, roomy and cozy. It is quite big, but does have an elevator. My room was clean, beds were comfortable and solid. From my experience everything was tip top shape, including clean restrooms and showers. Do remember to take your own towels! There is a nice lounge with computers. Also free WiFi scattered throughout the building. A nice bar, which also serves breakfast for a small fee in the morning. Security is good with every door needing to be opened by card. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
Planning on returning here soon!

the staff was excellent, the location was next to the subway/bus station. the rooms and bathrooms were clean, facilities up-to-date and the overall experience was well worth the very modest price. the staff even printed a map of the local area and helped me arrange my travel plans that day!

I've not stayed in many hostels but this one has to be among the best. It's a beautiful building, very centrally located for the U-Bahn and S-Bahn to find your way around the city and it's within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. Nice spacious rooms, with a bathroom ensuite and huge lockers to store your stuff.The staff are friendly, the bar's open 24 hours and they offer a decent breakfast for 5 euros. It's a shame the staff couldn't do anything about the person snoring REALLY loudly in my dorm one night!

This is simply the best hostel I have ever been.

-the lobby is amazing (you can see all the floors from the inside)
-they have a bar that runs 24/7 with good German beers that are extremely cheap
-rooms are brand new with nice linen and clean bathrooms
-staff is very nice
-located only a 10 minute walk form Alexanderplatz

They make it appear so easy I wonder how come there aren't as many great hostels!

Location is quiet and a good ten minutes walk to the u-bahn but also walkable if you were having a late night out around Alexander Platz or Freidrichshain. . Hostel rooms are spacious and clean with excellent bed. Excellent facilities very large place. No kitchen so more like a hotel with dorms.

Singer 109 is one of the best hostels I stayed in whilst on a month trip around Europe.

This hostel could be mistaken to be a hotel, as many other reviews have stated. The hostel is immaculately clean, the rooms are basic but efficient with en-suite bathrooms, staff are friendly and go above and beyond to help, which really makes a difference to the whole experience. We used the laundry service which was excellent. We were also late for check-out but we were not charged any extra or frowned upon for doing so.

Overall an amazing experience, I have recommended this hostel to family & friends and will definitely be returning in the near future.
