My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 days in March and I have to say it is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. New, clean and friendly, we arrived early and were able to store our luggage until 3pm when we could check in. We booked a private room with an ensuite. It was perfect - clean, spacious and very comfy. The decoration is beautifully done and a few interesting touches throughout the hostel. The kitchen services looked fantastic - we were informed that there was boxes to place any food items in the fridge and great cooking facilities. Breakfast was continental, with meat, breads, cereal and coffee. The staff were extrememly friendly, very helpful and their English was perfect. The location of the hostel was great, close to 2 U-Bahn stations including Hermannplatz and there were direct links from Sconenfeld Airport. There were an abundance of shops around the hostel, where we bought fruit, bread and ham to make our own lunches.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay in Berlin, one of my favourite cities I've been too. The transport links are FANTASTIC, the people very friendly and can be done on a bit of a budget. The Cat's Pajamas was a perfect base to explore from and the free map at the reception desk is a must have. Will definately return!
