Having just taken the night train to Berlin, my friends and I were tired and hungry so knowing it wasn't a very long walk to the hostel was ideal. When we arrived we were allowed to leave our bags in the luggage room and chill out and eat in the reception area because it was well before our check in... More

A great hostel in a prime location, 5 minute walk from the main attractions with great staff members a large bedroom and lounge area with an optional breakfast. Only downfall was sometimes the wifi was a bit slow due to large groups in the hostel probably using the wifi.

This hosteis is cheap and well located, however the staff was rude and not very kind, on the other hand, the bedrooms were dirty, the walls were a paper. You can hear everything (people drunk singing...). I went to several hostels and hotels but this was the worst.

Showers were a little grim so bring flip flops Hostel has a small bar in reception where we liked to drink a little and find people to go out with, but wouldn't say this is a... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our Eastern Europe travels. The location is perfect - right next to Mohrenstrasse tube and literally minutes on foot from all the main sights. The hostel has youthful vibe which made us 40-somethings feel like backpackers again. Our teenage kids loved it. We managed to get a family room to ourselves... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, the total experience was good: clean room but curtains which let through a lot of daylight, shower has risk of overflow because the drain doesn't work properly. Beers were cheap, 0,5l for 2,50 euro. Wifi works well, breakfast is not such a highflyer, but the hostel is situated next to a metro stop, so... More

The hostel is located very close of the Brandenburg Gate and close to metro stations. I am afraid that is the only thing good thing I can say. The service was good. The gentleman at the reception was kind and polite although he did not have too much information about Berlin. My husband and I stayed in a double room... More

You simply can't miss this place when you walk by because the sign is massive. There is 24 hour reception and finicky wifi. I think the number of guests compromise the wifi speed. Using the internet after 11:30pm is quite fast. The window in the single room spans the width of the room so it can be quite bright. When... More

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

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.
