Myself and a group of my friends (6) booked together here for our New Years celebration, Us four girls were put together in the same room with the one couple next door. It was a bit tricky to find at first as it was hidden behind an old factory type site which was having work done on it. Luckily we were there in the Christmas break so no drills! But very cool once we got inside. Quite modern, nice layout, 24hr reception and more importantly bar... Very good location, the Serenfelderplatz tube stop was literally across the road which is just two stops from the centre 'Alexanderplatz' or just a 15 minute walk.
The room was spacious with comfy beds, very good security with swipe keys and lockers included in the room. Each of us were designated a locker number and only your key could open it - believe me, I tested it! - So I felt very comfortable leaving my camera and valuables safe and secure in my room.
Overall, the place had a good friendly atmosphere, played some cool alternative music, the buffet breakfast was very good and they give you a little marzipan pig with your coffee (nice touch for just 2€). Great place for backpackers, travellers aged 20's-40's, although I did meet one couple travelling with their mum who also liked the place. If you are planning on staying for longer than a few days I wouldn't advice here as there was NO kitchen facilities, and the bar food was OK (But don't get the Nachos - total rip off). Also there was a slight flood issue in the shower room as there was no drainage system in the centre of the shared shower room (individual cubicles) - suggest you use flipflops!
That said, my friends and I had a very enjoyable stay here, we ate out every day (definately try a Curry Wurst!), and had a friend visit us without any trouble, played the Ukelele and had a sing along without any complaint, very relaxed place, it was perfect for what we were after and I would recommend it to like minded people.
