Entering the hotel may feel a little daunting with how creatively it is designed. However, staff was friendly (not over-reaching), and provided very good information regarding where the room is, where the breakfast area will be, and coupons to log-in information for the wi-fi access (per device).
The room is a loft, which meant my bed is at the top bunk. Sleeping here was very peaceful (I guess everybody respected every guest enough to stay quiet and not rowdy), and I would dare say even better than some hotels which claim to be 5-star but with other guests banging their doors as they go along. The temperature of the room was just right to keep me warm from the winter cold (double windows and heaters were in place).
The location is not the best (not city center), although not the worst too. It takes you about 150-200 meters to get from the hotel to the S-bahn (Warschauer Straße). This station is just a few stations away from Alexanderplatz and the Hauptbahnhof, which both get you near enough to the Bundestag, Brandenburg Gate and the remains of the Berlin Wall at Postdam.
There is also a lidl supermarket nearby (across the street, downstairs), which makes a good stop before getting back to the room for some drinks and snacks and other necessities.
Note that the breakfast (outside the room rate) is 11euros, which is not the best alternative, but acceptable nonetheless.
