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... More

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... More

Dear Georgie, We would like to apologize for the trouble during your check in and the overcharge. As there is learning from everything we will discuss the unfortunate mistake with the responsible staff members to avoid future inconveniences for our guests. Besides that your stay was obviously overshadowed by some misunderstandings: We are happy to offer our full American breakfast... More

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. The hostel had nice high bunkbeds which made you feel separate from others, and... More

This hostel had been highly recommended to us by a number of friends. What we (me and a friend) appreciated about the place: -the nice garden; -the excellent location (right across from a metro station, in Prenzlauerberg); -the beer garden and the restaurants around the corner + several nice restaurants in the same street; -the money machine in the hall;...

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... More

I stayed at Pfefferbett as a solo traveller for quite a while - 11 nights in total- in a 6-bed dorm with shared bathroom and a 4-bed dorm with an ensuite. This hostel was pretty good, and certainly one of the better hostels on offer in Berlin. Pros: - Fantastic location, right across the road from the Senefelderplatz U-Bahn station... More

Great rooms, chill reception/bar area, lovely garden and very central. The only complaint is the wifi. The wifi is very bad, constant problems with connecting and staying connected. Very easy to disconnect for no reason. Other than that, great place.

Visited Pfefferbett Hostel approximately two weeks ago with a couple of friends. I have never stayed in a hostel before and was not expecting anything as nice as this. The rooms were basic but were sufficient for someone like me who had come to Berlin to explore the city, not to spend masses of time in a hotel room. The... More

The location was great, close to the metro which was super easy to catch and in a trendy area. The hostel itself was nice - the breakfast was fantastic and the staff were friendly. However there was no wifi in the rooms which I found really annoying, and the wifi in the lobby only worked intermittently which is a big... More

It is located in a quiet location yet very close the U-bahn station which is two stops from Alexanderplatz. The hostel itself is a building inside the brewery complex named Pfefferberg. The room is clean and bright. Lockers provided inside the room using the same key as your room key so you can make a good use of the locker.... More

I stayed here for a week while finding a place to live. A very nice and well designed hostel in a lovely building. I've stayed in quite a few hostels in Berlin and this is definitely the nicest I've experienced. Very clean, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Common area is big (outside and in) and good.

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.
