A&O Hostel Friedrichshain - Kreuzberg

Having paid a lot for two world cup tickets I have booked budget accomadation at the above on Boxhagener Str. Not too bothered about the standard but does anyone know what the area is like, how far out it is and how easy it is to get to the centre and (importantly) the Olympiastadion.

One of the nightlife areas of Berlin with lot's of pubs

…mareea.de/artikel/kneipenguide.php4

The hostel is near the S-Bahn station Ostkreuz.

This is not a complete network map - just the only one I found valid past 28. May 2006 where there will be major changes. The circumreference of the S-Bahn ring is 39 km.

Hi,

the location is pretty good. Looks run-down at first view but there are many good (and cheap) restaurants and bars nearby. The Simon-Dach-Str. where you find a good nightlife atmosphere is in walking distance. With subway you reach the Alexanderplatz within 5-10 minutes from where you have an easy access to the tourist attractions and the centre east.

To get to Olympiastadion, just take the U5 to Alexanderplatz and from there it's a 35-40 minute trip to Olympiastadion...all in all it takes you about 60 minutes to get there. But the trip is easy and comfortable.

Thanks. What's the best way to get from Tegel? Is a bus/train to the centre, then out on the U-bahn/S-bahn a simple option?

Hi,

it is rather easy to get from TXL to Boxhagener Str. Go with the TXL express bus to Alexanderplatz and from there you have two options.

-with subway U5 to station Frankfurter Allee, from there it is a 1km walk

-or you can with S-Bahn (station Ostkreuz)... you can use S75, S5, S7...Have I forgot one?

Look at this map...the A&O Hostel is marked:

www.berlin.de/stadtplan/map.asp…

All in all it's a trip of about 60 minutes.
