“Stayed in 8 hostels over 3 weeks- Best one by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2011

I was extremely impressed with the Grand Hostel. I booked it because my initial choice was full for the first night but ended up wishing I had stayed there my whole time in Berlin. The room was very spacious, large bay window, large lockers so my two bags fit, hall bathroom so I never had to wait for a shower, hot water...There was no bunkbeds, which was such a nice change and upon arrival a staff member sat down and gave me a layout of the city and suggested places/things to do. They also held my luggage for free the day I left. It's not city center but close enough to a metro.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights. We were really impressed with the hostel. When we first arrived Christian took the time to sit down with us and go through everything including places to see and his recommendations. He was sooo helpful on various occasions with places to see and restaurant suggestions which never failed. The hostel itself is safe, has a key code to get into the hostel and into your room, free wifi along with three computers. The rooms are extremely spacious (no sardine can feeling like Ive experienced with other hostels), clean and have huge lockers. We were in a four bed room for two nights and our own private room for the last two and both were perfect. This hostel is completely worth it, well priced for what you get. Bathrooms even have blowdryers you can use. I would stay here again and again!

The Grand Hostel was in a great location, right next to an u-bahn station and had an electronic locking system so we all felt safe and secure during our stay in Berlin. The staff were very informative and friendly and made sure we got the most out of our stay. Affordable and clean! Would definitely stay there again.

Grand Hostel Berlin is a very high quality hostel, it is indeed nearly a hotel.
The room as clean, as well as the toilettes. The atmosphere is friendly and the interior design of a good standard to the eye.
The internet connection in the computer room though is slow, and the keyboard is in German, which gave me few log-in failure to my mailbox. Moreover it had Internet Explorer as browser, which gave me problem to open a PDF attachment (it tried to open as an image!). It would be much better to have the possibility to use Firefox or Google Crome.

We stayed at Grand Hostel Berlin for 3 nights, and had a wonderful time. This establishment is top notch - very modern, clean, and friendly. The facilities were state-of-the-art, everything was automatic (which was a little challenging in the showers...). The meals in the dining room are very generous and reasonably priced. It's very close to a train station, which takes you right into town. Even better, it is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, and only a five minute walk from great restaurants.
