4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

This ho(s)tel is very conveniently located right at the exit of the Senefelderplatz U-Bahn (U2). Very low price for a very comfortable room. New building, modern rooms with bright colours and neatly decorated, very quiet though on major street (Shoenhauser allee).

A hostel that is like a hotel. Way better than many 3* hotels I have stayed in Germany (and elsewhere) which cost twice the money and offered nothing more

Room 703 had a great view to the TV tower and skyline of Alexandeplatz.

WiFi not free but super cheap (5 EUR for 24 hrs that can be used over several days if you disconnect).

Super cheap breakfast, but the area is full of restaurants. Bio super-market and restaurant right next door.

This hotel represents good value for money, however, one thing to be aware of is that large groups of school children stays there, and can sometimes be quite noisy.

That said, all in all it really wasn't that bad for the middle aged traveler.

Hotel was overall a positive surprise. Staff was frinedly, location was quite nice and price ok. We had really nice view from our window. Room was spacious and fresh. Breakfast cost extra but was worth the money. I missed a little bit hairdryer and fridge. One night I woke up because some teenagers were screaming at the hall but luckily they stopped...

if you look for a hotel with price of a hostel, this is perfect. there was this group of kids with teacher (school trip or something), so you notice that is the kind of hotel (sorry, no hostel at all) you could take you mom or your kids there. Perfectly clean rooms, magnet key, big and fancy elevators, breakfast not included but theres a nice and cheap coffee just crossing the street. towels and hairdrier included, just leave a deposit.

but if you want to party, sorry, no good. kitchen is so not a meeting point (like everywhere's hostel kitchens) and theres no such thing as a backpacker atmosphere, its just feels like a 3-star-hotel as i said before. location is fine, not wonderful but a u-bahn station (Senefelderplatz) is just in front of the reception. also there's a street behind the hostel with great restaurants and bars, i recommend the one with beach sand on the floor, forgot the name.

worst thing: internet not free and only 4 computers.

A new-built budget hotel, mostly teenagers. Subway station in front of the door, 2 stops from Alexanderplatz (center of former East-Berlin). Offers shared rooms or you can get the whole room for yourself for a higher price. The building has elevators and en-suite bathrooms. Pillows are synthetic fabric, you might want to bring your own.

Its a new young clean and surprising hotel, mostly for a young people trying to save some money on hotels in Berlin. Very significant value for money. The food wasnt that good, there was no variety of food to pick at the morning, but who cares, it's really not about eating. Just walk 3 minutes out of the hotel and take a beautiful breakfast for 6-9 euro. Its absolutely ok. The rooms are clean, well designed (ikea stuff), beautiful view...

Really nice place to stay, if your are looking to be in the city center - several minutes from Alexanderplatz. Urban station right in front of the hotel.

Very recommended.
