Staying at Raise a Smile was a highlight of a 6 week, 5 country trip for us. The staff here are just so amazing, especially Esther, and very helpful with places to go, things to do and what to eat in Berlin.
The rooms have animal themes and the whole hostel has African themed decor which is really cool.
It's a small hostel (more like a 5 bedroom apartment converted into a hostel) so there is a very cosy vibe. It's not five star accommodation, but the bathrooms and bedrooms are very clean. If you are looking for an experience that will make you smile when you think about it months later, stay at Raise a Smile.
