The staff is incredibly friendly and the rooms are as clean as in good hotels. Their breakfast buffet doesn‘t have a big variety, yet the things that are served are tasty. Some of the pricing has changed. The buffet costs 7€ instead of 5€ and a coffee costs 1€ instead of being free. It isn‘t that dramatic, but interesting to know.

I stayed in a private room with en-suite and it was clean, spacious, comfortable and quiet during the night. The hostel staff were all friendly and very helpful. I didn’t use the bar / food area as I was only there for one night, but it did look good. Great location, just a few minutes walk to the nearest metro / tram, or only about 15 minutes walk to the centre. I would stay here again if I come back to Berlin.

Stayed with a friend, more than happy that we chose this place! The Senefelder U-station is just 100m across the street (2 stops til Alexanderplatz) and the area is chill (not sketchy at all). The staff in the hostel is very friendly, bilingual and helpful, we both felt welcomed. Luckily Pfefferbett is one of the few hostels who accept underage travellers (just needed a formal parent's consent). The lobby/bar is super chill, great vibes. Even in December there are always other guests you can meet there, mostly international young people. The rooms are clean, big and offer a safe for every bed. We were also lucky to have nice dorm mates (6 beds mixed dorm) and even as a solo female traveler I wouldn't hesitate to book a mixed dorm room here. Shower/toilet rooms were clean and warm. BIG PLUS that they offer free coffee/tee (even if you didn't buy the breakfast)! They also sell delicious sandwiches to go for just 1.80€ The free wifi was good (sadly it didn't work in the room most of the time). Minor complain: in the night it was kind of hot in the dorm (maybe the radiator level was too high?) Anyways I'll definitely come back (solo or with friends) and recommend it to everyone!

Currently, I am on my gap year before I embark into a furtber 5 years of university next September and I choose Berlin as my first step and Pfefferbett as my place of rest and it was PHENOMENAL!! I am so so pleased with everything about this hostel, the staff are more than happy to help you, from giving me sinple directions and to printing out on boarding pass for me the night before I left, i couldn't be more happy. I roomed with 4 other people and a bathroom to share between us and the rooms and bathrooms are kept immaculate. It's warm, it's lively and you feel secure and safe which is what i was looking for on my solo travels. A train stop is a 2 minute walk from the hostel and the transportation system in Berlin is amazing, the best I've experienced so far. I was so lucky to have chosen Pfefferbett, it not only gave me a great start to my travels but I was roomed with another solo traveller who became my buddy and I'm so grateful to have been bunked with. If you're looking for a place to rest your head in Berlin, Pfefferbett is the place!

The rooms are very clean, the space is well organized, the shower area can get crowded although it’s imaginable since it’s not a small structure. The staff is very friendly, the bar offers good options for all times of the day, it’s well connected being only one metro stop from Alexanderplatz. It was also nice to be so close to the theatre and hear the performers from the room. Also good for traveling alone.
