Rooms are clean and generally ok. Beds can be a bit tricky (too small for me). Service OK-ish and staff generally friendly. However, prices are truly excellent for a central place in Berlin like this. About 30 min by public transport to both city East and West. Ideal place to safe money and still having a decent place to sleep.

The hostel is not really central but is very close to public transport and one can easily get to the center or any desirable point of the city. The area is quite quiet (apart from some local kids who were staying up late just under our window) and one can sleep without any problems. We were in four and the...

Price: definitely worth it Location: right by the train, easy access. Negatives: *do not go for the breakfast buffet, it simply is not worth it and is not very good. (there is so much better food nearby) *the room key kept on deactivating Internet: Only works in the lobby, not the best connection. Room: Our room did not look like...

The rooms were quite okay, the bathrooms were clean also. We had to pay the entire reservation upfront, which seemed a bit forced given the fact that we had all our luggage with us. The internet WiFi signal was not the best but most of the time it worked (in certain parts of the room, in others it didn't work...

When we got in the hotel, we had a very good impression. The room was clean and very spacious. But since the first day we realized the wi-fi was not working properly. Once we needed to work using the internet, we went to talk to the staff about the problem, who did not care about our complaining. We had to...

I stayed there for 3 days in October with 2 of my friends. First the hostel was quite impossible to find because the map they have on its web site is very hard to understad.

This hostel is very nice, very clean as well. We stay in a room for 4. The hostel is not near the center but if you take the metro in 10min you are in Alexanderplatz. The neighbour is quiet and supermarkets are available 24hs one block from the hostel. Very good and cheap.

We had an okay stay in our room with a kitchen, livingroom, extra bed and a bedroom with a double bed. This was until we had to leave our room because of some problems the staff/hotel was having with the electricity and whatever unreasonable reason they gave us. We were therefor told that we would be moved, what we didn't...

We booked a 4 person room (we were with three). The room was pretty big with two bunks in it. The room was clean, also the bathroom/toilet. I think the room was before a apartment because it had little kitchenette but the stove and all apparels where removed and a sign on the door was saying it was strictly forbidden...

I was sceptical about staying here before my trip but I was very surprised when I arrived. All rooms were huge and clean. The beds were comfy, although we could have used a few extra pillows.

“If you can afford a private one, go for it, but the other rooms are good as well. If you don't want any noise try to have one that is not above the hostel's entrance, especially at night.”
