I stayed here for 3 nights. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I had a 4 bed shared dorm. It definately was a smaller room but that was sorta because it was a boat. I loved how they had portholes in the rooms. I found it very charming. It was very clean and found the bathroom adequate.
There is no internet in the cabins because of the metal but they have a lovely sitting area upstairs where you get excellent internet access.
The location is great. Its right buy a metro station and a short walk from the bus station. It is right beside the oberbaum bridge which makes a nice stroll. its also right beside the eastern wall. It makes a lovely stroll to look at all the cool art. Its also interesting piece of history. I remember as a small child watching the wall fall on tv. I remember my parents telling me about what it meant and how important it was so it was nice to be so close to a piece of history.
There is no kitchen but they have a staff microwave and fridge at reception which they will let you use. I had cup of soup for dinner and they gave me a bowl and spoon and boiled water for me. You pay 5 euros for breakfast which is worth it if you want the convience however food is so cheap in germany that you could buy your own food for cheaper. I missed breakfast because I slept through it one night. They were very nice and let me use my ticket for the next morning instead. Breakfast is very nice. Its a traditional German breakfast with buns and sliced meat and cheese. I think they also had yogurt and cereal options. The food is good quality and you can have as much as you like.
