Lovely charming hostel in a multicultural surrounding! I was amazed when I discovered my cosy room with some steps ups, really nice to sleep there although it's 35°C outside (plus bed sooooo comfortable), plenty of books and queer touristic paths guides you can borrow... Even can borrow an umbrella ;). The hostess is super friendly and gives the best tips for the surroundings, nice breakfast. OK, the toilet and shower have to be shared, but there were just around the corner, shower room so big and bright, actually much bigger than in some "classical" hotels, very clean - I guess all the guests traveling here share values of courtesy and open-mindness. Summary: best place ever! I know what I'll book for my next trip in Berlin -by the way, calling directly. THANK YOU!
I only stayed for 1 night - loved to stay longer and I surely will return. What An attention for detail and ambiance! Unique - unexpected. Moreover it felt comfortable and like home. Great welcome and I truly regret not being able to have breakfast. The location is superb; close to shops / cafés / restaurants / public transport Tip; take a stroll over the turkish market. Pizza at Il Cassolare. Ladies only; visit the nearby hamam (check my review)
A great experience once found (it is 20m right of the door with 89 on). Clean room, very quiet, good bath and a very, very nice hostess. The wifi was strong. The breakfast equally strong and excellent. Hard to point a finger at anything here, not even the price of € 45 for one night incl. breakfast; simply Lekker... The area is interesting. Close to the Spree and the Weserstrasse, it offers a variety of cheap international restaurants and bars. You don't need to go far to be entertained and fed. I went 100m to the left out of the entrance and found superb Asian restaurant with great sushi (1 drink, miso soup, a beer and a duck-curry for less than € 20). 5 mins away from the Kottbusser Tor station (not that nice but close) makes logistics work, even if you come from marvelous Schönefeld Airport...(I loathe that place...).…
I've stayed at Lekkerurlaub numerous times. For me it represents the best kind of budget accommodation. Sure you have to share a (very clean) bathroom and some of the beds aren't as comfy as others but Kathrin is a wonderful host who goes massively out of her way to help her hosts. What's more all the rooms are v comfortable while also quirky and there is a very generous spread for breakfast every day even if you're the only person in the hotel! The Wifi is also v good and there's an honesty fridge of cold drinks. The area around the hotel is one of Berlin's liveliest with any number of restaurants, bars and cafes within a few minutes walk. All in all you probably won't do much better than this, and certainly not at tge price Kathrin offers. Go.
Very cool place! Spent here four nights, in a double bedroom with shared bathroom & shower which was actually super clean. Our room was cozy and quiet, even if it faced the street. Very good wi-fi and great breakfast! Kathrin is a very open minded and friendly owner who gave us some good tips on where to eat. There's a grocery only a few minutes from the hostel, two metro stations, and plenty of places to eat out.
