    I stayed at Ostel for one evening on a recommendation from an actual East German! If you have a bizarre fascination with the GDR and their mid-60's style of design... like I do - this is the place for you! The hostel is conveniently located...More

    Stayed here on my first time to Berlin. It was basic, but the 1970's style gave it something unique. The breakfast was tasty too.

    When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of
    the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party
