“Great location, more hostel than hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Excellent location, only 5 minutes from Alexanderplatz. Booked single room but ended up on my own in a 4 bed room. facilites 2 doors down were very clean. Small warning, no plug socket in room. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend for groups rather than travelling alone.

The location of the hostel is superb. The bathroom facilities a very nice and just enough.24 hrs reception is very convenient.in our bedroom (at the very end of the corridor) the internet connection was a bit bad. The room was very spacious,
Overall it was very nice to stay the weekend as a couple, also bare in mind it is a hostel, so it might be noisy and messy, but this is not the hostels fault.

Stayed there for 4 nights.
Most of the people in the staff were great, very helpful and funny.
Good matrasses, GREAT showers and toilets, very clean.
Very cheap drinks and food at bar (compared to standard Berlin prices).
Bar closes at midnight though, which is a bit too early for me personally.

One thing that was a bit dissapointing: it felt a bit like a big hotel to me.
Common room was just a normal room with some seats in it instead of beds.
No one was ever in there (everyone goes to bar to socialize).

Rooms were excellent, staff were very helpful and friendly (especially Ole!), place was spotless and breakfast was quite good even though you have to pay 5 euro. Location of the hostel is very good as well, only a few mins walk from Alexanderplatz and walking distance to the museum islands and most attractions in Mitte! Recommend it for travelers to Berlin!

This hostel was very clean, spacious, modern and central. Located right next to Alexanderplatz. There are reviews saying its in a rough neighbourhood but thats not true! i felt very safe walking around and yes there may be a 'cold ambience' to the area but thats only because its located in the cold ex communist side of East Berlin!
The only thing which i though could have been improved was the lack of a party atmosphere but that could have just been me.

I highly reccomend this hostel as a direct express train pulls right into Alexanderplatz from Schoenfeld airport.

Room Tip: for a better wifi connection try to stay on a lower floor

I have to admit that the price were good but the ambiance such as the placement of the hostel were making it think of a factory, too much room, a cold atmosphere related to the unfriendly neighborhood of alexanderpkatz (even if very central) . To conclude there is so much better places in Berlin with a different And more friendly atmosphere

I stayed in Pangea for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms were spacious and clean with everything we needed, the showers and toilets were just across the hall. Had a really good restaurant and bar but the prices were a little expensive considering we were back packing e.g breakfast for 5.50. Wifi wasn't free which was a pain. The location was good, right in the heart of the east and close to a tube station. Really enjoyed my stay I would recommend
