You really can't beat the price. The area was pretty hip and near the train station, so if your good at navigating metros in order to get to the site, you're golden. The bathrooms were kept clean and the rooms were nice. Nice helpful staff. Next time, I'd pay a little more to be closer to the city center, but can't complain. Also free cereal, coffee and tea all day is a nice bonus!
Helpful hint, there is a kebab place nearby that offers really cheap, yummy food!

I stayed in Backpacker Berlin hostel for one week. First of all I should say that it is really a cheap place to stay, 10 euro/night or 15 during the weekend. The best about this hostel is the location, the picturesque Friedrichshain, with many small cafés and bars, only a few minutes by walking from S-bahn station Ostkreuz. From there You can get anyway in Berlin within reasonable time, to Alexander Platzt even by using "short-trip" ticket (cheaper then regular one).
The 6-bed dorm room is just ok, but with some small drawbacks - no stairs or ladder to the upper bed (for short people like me quite tricky), only one locker where I could actually stove a 30l bag (the others have some strange separator inside). I think it was a way too often we had to wait for bathrooms when there were more people, and they could be cleaned more often.
There is a kitchen, a tiny but very typical terrace and a comfortable living room, but this is closed already at 11pm. Also, cereals and coffee available in the living room for just a voluntary contribution.
Overall this is a calm place and one can get a good rest. Considered the price it was a good choice.

This hotel is very near Ostkreuz train station and also right by a tram station. There are some lovely restaurants and bars in the area, and also a number of good clothes shops! Our favourite place for breakfast was the russian cafe on the way into town. The hostel itself is a charming little place off the main road in a very safe area (to be honest everywhere is a safe area in Berlin). Each room is decorated slightly different but we had a nice, spacious room with a balcony. The facilities are very clean and there is free tea or coffee and free use of the internet via their computers or a wi-fi network. The staff here are very friendly and helpful with any inquiries you may have. We will be returning here when we next visit Berlin!

Small hostel located 10 mins away from the S-Bahn, in a nice neighbourhood (plenty of restaurants nearby).

Free computer with internet, warm room, cheap washing machine, friendly environment, nice staff, clean bathrooms.

No receptionist after midnight, no TV, and definetly not a party hostel. If you want to relax after those long walks through the beautiful Berlin, it's a nice place to stay.

If you're looking to party, forget it.

Nice stay, overall.
