Cityhostel Berlin
Ranked #48 of 356 Specialty Lodging in Berlin
Reviewed March 31, 2012

City hostel is a great choice of hostel. The staff is friendly and professional. There are all facilities you may need, including pool table and a great breakfast hall that turns into a bar at night. Always available sandwiches and lighter meals at the reception, and no parties allowed after 22:00. Only flaw is that there are showers and sink in the dorm rooms, which some travellers intend to utilize when they come home at 03:00 in the morning, waking up the rest.

Supertidy and modern interior, plenty of information about tours and perfect location to the historical Berlin. A annoyingly perfect and correct hostel if your Berlin trip is about party, but if you're travelling with family or prioritate daily activities with a great start of your day - look no further!

Room Tip: Avoid dorm rooms if you wake up easily at night due to no shower restrictions.

This hotel was perfect!. Great location near major attractions, just a block from the metro station. Breakfast is included and huge! It's a buffet with several cheeses, breads, yogurt,milk, coffee, hams, cookies. I went with my brother and my parents and we got a room for four with bathroom, very clean and proper. At first my parents weren't sure about this hostel since they though it was good just for backpackers and may be very noisy, but actually it is quiet in the rooms and full of live in the reception and games area. Receptionist always ready to help,plenty of information about attractions.

I stayed in this hostel on November and first of all I have to say that Berlin is cold in that season. So you need to turn up the heater to the last level :) The location of the hostel is great you are some minutes away from Checkpoint Charlie for example also you can reach to Brandenburg Tor, Reichstag in 10-15 minutes by walking, in the other hand the underground network is so improved and there is a metro station called Mohrenstrase on left side of the hostel and there are some other stations around so you can reach whereever you like in just minutes. You can buy 2 hour-ticket, 24 hour-ticket, 2 day or 3 day-ticket and after that you have to validate your ticket before using transportation your ticket is valid for busses, metro, tramway and even train for sometimes to somewhere... The breakfast was avarage and internet connection was just in the just lobby and if you have your own laptop it is free to connect, I stayed on the first floor and it connected a bit sometimes. Allways hot water, clean room, bed and the heater was ok. Crew was helpful, there are 5-6 computers in the lobby and if you like to use you have to pay 2 euros for 1 hour. There are automats for buying most known German Chocolates and Beers in the lobby, there was a billard table but it was out of order.

We stayed here recently, I thought it was very good value. The location couldn't be better, it's very close to loads of shops and tourist attractions. The hostel is well run, the staff were always polite and helpful. They even chilled our champagne for us for xmas day.

The people working at this place are very nice people and very helpful. They speak both German and English.
The rooms are comfortable and clean.
The location is perfect, right next to the Postdamer Platz. It is 20m from a metro station (Stadtmitte).
The buffet breakfast is very good.
There is a luggage storage service which is very secure.
I stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days.
