Great location. Wifi is really bad it barely works. Clean rooms. It's an average hostel. At the time we stayed there were a lot of teenagers shouting in the halls. I assume it is a youth hostel. We booked a private room and it was comfortable. It is near to Berlin Mall

Nice hostel, we stayed here with 6 friends. It has a good, central place. all attractions can easily be reached by metro or by foot! There is a small bar at the reception but a night store is also close by. a lot of nice breakfast spots within a ten minute walk. Also very friendly staff! good overall impression

We stayed just one night in Berlin but found the City Hostel very conveniently located for our needs. It is 20 minute metro ride away from the Berlin ZOB (the main bus station). Get off at the Mohenstrabe stop instead of the Stadtmitte stop mentioned on their website. The Mohenstrabe stop is just a minute away from the Hostel. We... More

The room was basic. We booked a private room for 2 and ended up with room for 4. I checked with reception and the guy told me it was a 2 bed room and did not understand when I said the room had 4 beds. Luckily, no one else got checked into the room with us. The shower is separate... More

Very good location in city center between Brandenburger Tor and Checkpoint Charlie. Good price for this location. A few things could be better. The doors to the rooms are very poor, everything outside the room can be heard inside the room. I got a room close to bathrooms and luggage storage, and I could hear everything. The staff service and... More

The room was decent. 4 beds. The showers were gross. The bathrooms were covered in piss and no toilet paper! The noise was so bad from 9pm-5am and started again at 7am! Loud screaming and doors slamming all night long! Wifi doesn't work at all. Pillows were bad aswell. Good luck loading anything! Needless to say I canceled all hostels... More

Visited the hostel with a friend, there is a good area to sit downstairs but overall I found the hostel to be very plain and clinical. I was only passing through Berlin, so didn't experience it from a tourist perspective, but this hostel was in a good location for those who are. I didn't have a plug near my bed,... More

Good place for budget travellers. We walked from berlin hbf, about 30 mins walk I think. But we walked pass and stopped by a pastry shop/cafe because the tarts looked beautiful. Tastes good as well. Hostel was alright, free luggage storage, quite area and near a shopping centre. We walked to berlin wall.

6 of us stayed for 3 nights for a stag weekend. Although this hostel is very basic the location is great, Mohrenstrasse station is literally next door. Brandenburg gate, holocaust memorial and the riechsatg are all within a 10minute walk. We didn't spend too much time in the room as it was only really just a place to sleep, perfect... More

We chose this hostel because of it's good location and price and we were not disappointed. The location is great for sightseeing (less than 10 minutes away from Brandenburg Gate and close to the metro station), but there aren't really any bars or restaurants near by (at least not the cheap ones). There is a bar at a hostel with... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
