The hostel was great location. A hop, skip and jump from the metro and close to bars and restaurants. It's about 15-20min walk to Alexanderplatz. Checkin went smoothly, staff very helpful and cool bar/restaurant to relax in. The hostel seemed modern and clean. We stayed in a 8 bed dorm. Room was big, plenty of storage for luggage and lockers...

I arrived to a very warm welcome from Diana on reception, she was very helpful and friendly. I stayed in an 8-bed dorm which was clean, modern and spacious, with comfortable beds. The showers are amazing, the best I've ever had when travelling!! The lounge/bar area is great too, with an open-fire and comfy seating. The place has lots of...

The location is good, near the metro station and not too far from the city with good places to eat & drink nearby. The room was good, the shelf & individual light are a bonus, and the lockers are a decent size. One downside was the noise outside early in the morning, I think it was glass bins being emptied....

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm here in September that I had booked with a group of friends and we all really liked this place.

Dear Beth, We can imagine your frustration when entering the room and find beds and lockers occupied. We rely on the mutual consideration of our guests, especially in the dorms. Cleaning the rooms while the guests are staying is sometimes a challenge. But please be assured that it is a challenge we want to meet! Thank you for your constructive...

Even though the app I booked on said it included city tax I was told in a very unfriendly manner that the price stated didn't. The facilities were fine and clean but the vibe was pretty stale. No kitchen so I had to wait every time I wanted my water bottle filled up. If you're coming with friends and don't...

Our friends came here for a fun, cheap experience but we experienced the very opposite. When we arrived they not only thought we were staying for two night la instead of three but also overcharged us by 46 euros. This took a long while to be sorted out and to persuade them that we had in fact been overcharged but...

Me and my boyfriend as part of our interrailing trip around Europe stayed here in an 8 bed mixed dorm. The hostel is in a good location, right opposite a metro station, and in a nice square up from the road with a theatre and restaurant/bar.

Dear Masana, first of all we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your impressions with us. A solution for the weak wifi in our lobby is in progress, with the beginning of september the wifi will be stable. The city tax is indeed included in the booking.com rate. We honestly regret that dealing with city...

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
