“How hostels have changed - great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I haven't stayed at a hostel for a number of years and have to comment by saying- they have changed. This is not an old style hostel - but a clean, crisp venue set inside an old building. The hostel is vast and has everything you need for a long or short stay in Berlin. The bedroom that I had was a dorm with two bunk beds. It was clean and had a large en-suite with large shower. The water pressure in the shower wasn't great, but temperature fine. Check in was quick and efficient.

I didn't sample the food or any other of the facilities so can't comment.

the price was exceptional and great value for money.

Excellent. Would stay again.

Awesome hostel, situated in the party center of the city. Just opposite the hostel is a very cool club! Ther's also a market with cheap food and a subway station which will get you right across the city! The stuff is fun and helpful, they speak very good English! The hostel has a pool, sauna and a bar/restaurant where you can meet up with other travellers! The rooms are quite nice - but a bit dark for my taste. Every room has a bathroom. I recommend this hostel for young people wanting to experience Berlin!

Amazing location, amazing building. Such friendly and helpful staff. Lots to do and see. I would recommend this to anyone, even families. Such great value for money. Lovely food and cocktails. I'd come again and again! The only (tiny) complaints - would have loved a full length mirror in our room (two girls) and the pool was verrrrrrrrrrry cold. But not problems at all!

Great hostel in great location!
Short walk to the Berlin wall murials.
I had a great dinner at the hotel and breakfast was also good.
Great bar with reasonably priced drinks!
The room was a little pokey but very clean and the beds were comfortable. GREAT pillows.
Also the cutest rabbits in a caged off area outside :)
Would recommend this hostel.

I booked this hotel as a 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary celebration for my husband and myself. We had a private double room on the 4th floor.
When we arrived at the hotel the staff were very welcoming and friendly. It took us a while to find our room and when we opened the door there was a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for us!
Very thoughtful and generous. Thank you :)
This place is massive and busy but we had no disturbances whatsoever.
The room was very clean and towels were changed daily.
We had a drink in the bar on the night we arrived and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. We paid for breakfast the next morning which was a buffett with a selection of cereal, fruit, yoghurts, bread, meat, cheese, scrambled eggs, beans and mushrooms. They didn't serve bacon which is what I really wanted!
The pool was cold but the sauna was lovely. There was plenty of computers in reception along with drink and snack machines. There is also free wifi all over the hotel. They also have a made up beach area in one of the hotel's yards! I even noticed some rabbits in another yard!
The staff were very polite, cheerful and knowledgeable. They gave us help with places we wanted to visit and made other recommendations.
We walked almost everywhere while we were there instead of using transport which is not a problem for anyone if you are fit enough and enjoy walking.
We had a wonderful time in Berlin and I would definitely stay at Plus Berlin if I was to visit the city again.

Perfect accomodation if you are gonna visit the city center. The closer tube station is Warshauer and in few stops you can reach Alexanderplatz. Wide open spaces where you can sit, relax and socialize. The room are very big and clean. The continental breakfast essential and cheap. The international staff is very helpfully and kindly. Always full of young guests. Wifi free and fast. Just a little problem with the water from the silk (just in our room): it was too hot even after the attempt by the staff to fix the problem but at the end I definitely recommend Plus Berlin.
