“Great hostel, clean, well located and easy to find.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Very happy with this place. It can be difficult arriving in a new city at night and finding the hotel/hostel, not in this case. Quick train from the airport and two metro stops later an you're there. The place is clean, convivial bar and reception open 24hours, comfortable beds. Only minor drawback is that the bar prices are the same as local restaurant prices. That being said, 2€ beer is pretty good for western Europe.

We stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The room is spacious and clean.

The atmosphere is great. It is a comfortable hostel. The U bahn is just across the room. Easily accessible to everywhere by U bahn.

Cons: The shower however needs to be solved. The whole bathroom gets wet!! There is wifi only in reception area. There is no kitchenette facilities. Outside food & drinks cannot be consume here because they have a bar that serves food.

All in all nice place to stay.

Good hostel, very clean, good atmosphere, and friendly staff.
It has a good location in the city, is at ten minutes walking to the center of berlin.
Breakfast is a little expensive (5euros) but very good. There is also a nice garden to rest in the afternoon or have breakfast in the morning

Positive:
- The location of this hostel right opposite an u-bahn station in Prenzlauer Berg is perfect.
- Everything is clean and new and the bar area is comfortable to hang out in.
- Staff were friendly and helpful. And pretty good looking.
- Massive comfy pillows. Ahhhh. So good.
- Lovely sunny garden to take your breakfast/book/beer into if you so desire.

Negative:
- The in-room lockers suck. If you have a mid to large size bag you won't be able to fit it in there, and they can be difficult to work as well.
- 6 room dorm seemed a little crowded with not much floor space in between the bunks.
- Having to push a button to make the shower work every ten seconds is kind of annoying but that's only a minor gripe.

This hostel is set up for greatness - clean rooms and bathrooms, 24 hour bar and food, big backyard garden - and yet it had no atmosphere. This staff were not particularly warm or helpful and they allow large school groups, which is a huge downfall. Though nothing was really wrong with our stay, we will not be staying here again.

I've been to hostels throughout the world, and I think I will go out on a limb and say that Pfefferbett is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Located in an old brewery (reason enough to stay!), it has free wifi, cheap drinks, and is essentially brand new. The rooms and bathrooms are very modern and pristine. The location is incredible, too. It is across the street from a metro station, and in close proximity to many bars, restaurants, and Mauer Park (don't miss the flea market on Sunday!). I stayed in an apartment in Kreuzberg through Airbnb for most of my stay, and feel as though the facilities at Pfefferbett were superior. Oh, and did I mention it's only 12E a night?

Stay here!!

Very spacious, clean and modern dorm rooms. They have power points next to the bed which is handy, and lockers inside the room (must bring your own lock). The staff were really helpful and friendly, location was excellent, across the road from the subway and a nice stroll through Prenzlauer Berg into other areas. Nice bar atmosphere with wifi in the lounge area. The only thing I disliked was the stairs and fairly long walk from the road to the hostel. Not very much fun with a suitcase but the place was nice and I would recommend it.
