“Overall, very good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

A very clean, relaxed, welcoming hostel/hotel. It'll definitely be my first choice again when I revisit Berlin. Great bar/restaurant, swimming pool, sauna and decent free WiFi connection, at quite a cheap price!
My only criticisms are:
- you need cups in the bathroom (plastic ones)
- the TV was almost on the ceiling and pointing the wrong direction
- 4th floor temperature not consistent, need better insulation

Perfect location, it really is no more than 2 minutes to the U-bahn and 5 to the S-bahn. Lovely building, I was worried that as it was an old building that it would be very cold, in fact it was really warm and comfortable. We were in a double deluxe ensuite, which for the price was outstanding. The ensuite bathroom comprised of a huge shower pod with a rain-type shower head. Towels were replaced every day, and everything was cleaned. Massive bed, and a nice sofa, desk, big mirror. Beautiful big old windows.
The staff were all extremely helpful with recommendations of where to go (I'd recommend Goodies too, really good coffee and healthy food for a good price) The restaurant was also very well priced and was so nice if you just wanted to get a drink before going out/bite to eat.
WiFi was a bit dodgy in our room, but the signal is very strong on the ground floor where the reception/lounge area and bar are.
Overall a really lovely stay, I can't really fault anything.

Room Tip: Though we chose a private room, we spoke to people in girls-only dorms who said that they were perfe...

Went for a four night stay in December. Very friendly staff, clean and good value. The hotel is massive and it took some time to get orientated but everything was well signposted eg. Pool, bar. Hotel is situated 5 minutes from the berlin wall gallery and 10 minutes from metro. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

For the money I couldn't wish for better. Very good staff with great English, cool building, great area, cheap, clean. I would come back if I was back in the city. Breakfast good for the money too, €6.

It was the first time I'd stayed in a hostel and it exceeded all my expectations. We stayed (my boyfriend and I) here just before Xmas on a long weekend.

Hostel
The building is really interesting, it looks like something between a school or a factory conversion. The reception is large with lots of posters and information leaflets. There are computers you can use (for free) including to do any printing. We spent all day out and about so didn't have time to use the leisure facilities. We did, however, use the bar in the evening. It was so cold in Berlin we didn't want trek all over town to find post-dinner drinks so instead we headed to the hostel's Opera bar which was reasonably priced. There was music, some entertainment for those who wanted it, or for people like us an opportunity to sit in our own space and unwind. The bar also had some board games which they let us borrow. We didn't eat here but the menu seemed well priced. The decor throughout was modern although there are some quite random pictures in the corridors that you wouldn't want your Grandma seeing!

Room
We were expecting a shared bathroom so were very pleased with our en suite complete with towels, hair dryer and toiletries. The room was tidied every day and there was a wardrobe, tv and free WIFI. Considering it was snowing and our room was like a very tall vault, it was surprisingly nice and toasty! Only negative is that the beds were terrible!!! They gave us back ache and I think more than 3 nights would have been a bit too much.

Location
Fantastic location. You can walk to the EastSide gallery and are only 2minutes from LIDL (cheap breakfast) and 5minutes from the tube/train stations. The transport links from this location (if you can work out the Berlin system - not the easiest in Europe) are great. It is also very handy from schonefeld airport.

Berlin was a great city and this was a great place to stay. Do not hesitate to book!

6 of us stayed here for a couple of nights in October and were absolutely amazed. The hostel is huge and is more like a hotel - our rooms (2 x triple and ensuite) were large, clean and everything looked new. Staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were great - bar/restaurant, pool, laundry - we really couldn't have asked for more and will definitely stay here again.
