FREE Breakfast, bed linen, towels and WiFi help make this hostel a good place to stay if you want to visit the Topography of Terror which is only a short walk away.

For the price this was worth the stay. Breakfast in the morning, WiFi access in the lounge and the very helpful staff makes this a good hostel.

Room Tip: As there are no in room toilets and showers try to get close to one.

The City Hostel Berlin is a lively and friendly place to stay. The staff was helpful, and the beds made before you arrived. It is well situated for easy access by U-bahn, a few blocks from Checkpoint Charlie and a short walk to the Brandenburg Gate or in the other direction Museum Island. The breakfast was quite good, and filling.

Its a descent place to sleep, especially if you are trying to save money.
But as an ex-mochiller that slept in many dormitory hostels around the world I was expecting a bit of a traveler's atmosphere but this hostel was far from that.

Most people there are not cool travelers trying to meet new people in the dormitories, their just people trying to save money and usually have enough worries of their own.
There's no "together" vibe there.

It's a hostel, so don't expect anything fancy. It was my first time traveling solo, and it was a great experience. I was in Berlin to run the marathon, and the hostel was full of runners (my Spaniard roommates were also runners). It was a 10 minute walk to the start/finish between the Brandenburg Gate and the Victory column, and is very close to the Reichstag for playing tourist. There is also a U-bahn stop very close by. I'd stay here again should I ever decide to break the PR I set in Berlin.
