“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The hostel is located just a few-minute walk from Samaritans (don't remember the name exactly) U-Bahn station. There are many bars and cafes in the vicinity - just ask staff how to get to them. The bathrooms are clean and the kitchen is really well-equipped.
The hostel is a safe place, the main entrance code is changed every day. There are no problems with the wifi. Parking your car in the street outside is free.
The only nonsense is that you cannot consume your own alcohol in the hostel!

Great location just few minutes walk from Samaritans U-Bahn station. Clean. Room very cosy like for double. No table with chairs so you can relax different than sitting on bed.
You can't consume alcohol not bought in the hostel itself - which I find a bit silly. Conditions you sign on check in say you will be immediately evicted if you do that - doh! - really silly.

The hostel was clean and the rooms were comfortable. Good location near bars and restaurants. I had a problem with my locker and the staff was not very helpful in fixing it. I waited three hours for the house manager to come to work and open my locker which was a bummer on a weekend trip. Besides the lock incident this hostel is great and i would recommend it.

I recently stayed here with two friends, we had a room for three. It was spacious, clean and comfortable! The hostel temperature was also perfect as it was a little chilly out. The bathrooms and showers were great! The location is also good, very near the train station and a shopping centre. Be warned: all shops are pretty much closed on a Sunday...so either get supplies on a Saturday or eat at one of the many places in the area! Thank you for a fabulous stay!

Nice hostel with friendly staff in a cool neighborhood. The rooms are quite big and beds are nice. Staff was very helpful, served great coffee. Great connection to all mayor places. Can be a bit noisy, depending on the other guests, and the bathroom could use a twice-a day cleaning.

This little hostel is tucked away in trendy Friedrichshain and is all the better for it. With great staff, a great atmosphere and an awesome location, it's really got everything I was after. I was in Berlin for about 8 days and nothing beat the casual stroll up through the soviet buildings of Karl-Marx-Allee and Frankfurter Allee, into Alexanderplatz and Mitte, or just exploring the surrounding neighbourhood. The u-bahn is close by, too. berlin is a beautiful, unique part of the world and U Inn Hostel was the perfect place to experience it. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Really neat hostel with S-U bach theme all over. Place right between
Samariterstraße U-bahn and Frankfurter Allee S-U bahn. Lots of small restaurants, cafes, shops around. Very clean hostel, nice hostel staff. Hostel can give you hair dryer or iron if need one. Nice kitchen where you can cook some food. Also you can take breakfast for 2 euro (toasts, corn flakes, coffee, milk). Small lounge on the first floor, where you can sit and relax. Toilets are unisex, which brings some... tension. But shower rooms on first floor are separeted and each have two shower cabin, and toilet rooms.
Over all – really great place to stay with your friends.
