This is the first time I stayed in a hostel and I have no regrets. This huge old building locates rooms, a game room, a pool and a restaurant / bar. The staff is friendly and helpfull. We stayed in a room with private bathroom. The room is basic but clean, towels are changed everyday and they even provide minitiatures of shampoo and soap. We had are own fridge and microwave. I think great value for our money. Located near the U and S bahn in the upcoming neigbourhood Friedrichshain. Walking across the bridge gets you to several great places to go out. Only negative I have is the bed. The mattress is really hard. We will come back!
