We absolutely loved this hostel! It was friendly, vibrant and in a great location (also cheap in comparison to many others!) The €3 breakfast set us up for the day and the staff were always available and happy to help - Would definitely return!

Very easy to meet people with a great bar downstairs. My room was a 3 bedroom dorm and we had a lot of space, light and a bathroom amongst ourselves. The hostel had a very cool vibe, fairly good breakfast and was in a great location for an arty scene, access to sights and nightlife. Recommended.

My friends and I booked one of the 4 bed apartments here for a few nights in Berlin. The hostel itself has friendly staff and a nice bar area downstairs. There are washing machines (make sure you grab some powder from the bin at the side, no signs about needing to do this and we didn't realise) and dryers, and... More

Stayed in a 4 bed apartment with ensuite and kitchen - was perfect for what we needed! Good value for money, very clean, free wifi (although not a great connection in room) and cheap drinks in the hostel bar. Really close to bars, clubs and travel connections. Highly recommend!

Stayed at the Sunflower hostel with some friends during the first weekend of April 2016. Can't recommend this place enough, the staff are very helpful and laid-back (the good kind of laid-back, mind you). The hostel bar is open something like 22 hours a day, the rooms are in good condition considering that this is a hostel after all, and... More

My friend and I stayed at this hostel for 6 nights. All of the rooms are decorated differently and there is a bar downstairs, so this made meeting other travelers so easy. The showers and bathrooms were also very clean. Would stay here again!

We stayed there 2 nights with kids during school break. We had a private room 2nd floor. The hostel reflect very much east Berlin. It was perfectly clean. Breakfast was grand. Wifi also in bedroom. And quiet enough. Thumbs up for friendly and helpful staff. We would certainly come again.

I can't precisely remember when was my first encounter with this hostel, but I can tell for sure that I've kept coming back throughout the years - and I'm not the only one, by far not! This place just converts you from a curious tourist to a fanatical expat. Mostly a party-place, full of sound and fury - also has... More

Convenient location, friendly stuff and clean (as much as a hostel can be). Good breakfast. Noise is a drawback! It is really close to the east side of the berlin wall and some nightclubs and restaurants!

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
