“An awesome hybrid hostels-hotel”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Grand Hostels of Berlin is a great hybrid of a hostel and a hotel, with all their possible advantages and any disadvantage: a big room, cleaned up every day; clean and scented toilets and showers; a very advanced electronic access to the hostel and the rooms; a reception with common living room managed by kind and helpful guys; a lot of benefits and discounts, most of all on the week-end; the rules are few, but respected by all the guests; it'is near the center, but no so much to be a lame tourist area.
Perhaps the only flaw is the absence of a common space for cooking, but it is so unimportant compared to the rest, that it still remains the best hostel I went.
I strongly recommended it!

Grazie mille for your super nice review Francesco :o)
Yes, you are truly right in a way-we are a hybrid. We are a Hostel but we want to offer each guest also the comfort of a Hotel. Unfortunately we are not allowed to add a guest kitchen to our hostel-german fire regulations...but we have just opened our very own sandwich bar which is only steps away. We offer hot &cold food there and maybe we will organize some pasta cooking nights there in the future. Thank you so much again for your review and we hope to see you again in Berlin.

Could not be happier with my choice of THE GRAND HOSTEL IN BERLIN rooms are clean and staff could not be faulted nothing is a trouble to them. They even go as far as offering you a welcoming drink. I would recomend it to everyone.

Room Tip: no lift so try for lower rooms

Stayed in single room with shared facilities. It was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. Good breakfast buffet. Area where hostel is located is not that inspiring but U-bahn stop is 2 min walk and permits to link easily to the rest of the city. Keycode system for room entry was handy but hard not to shut door without a bang. Shower and toilet facilities are ok, good water pressure but shower cubicles could be improved so floor does not get so easily wet. The hotel is a nice historical building but with creaking floor, and thin walls, so you will hear people coming up the main stairs and getting in and out of their room throughout the night, and even what they are up to in their room....

Hi there,
Thank you very much for your kind review.
We will take your suggestions on board and will try to improve the shower facilities. The wooden floors and doors are historical and we cannot change them. They can be a bit noisy thats true but they give the house a special charme :o) Our hostel is only minutes away from Check Point Charlie and the trendy Kreuzberg district but as you have said all other attractions can be reached easily by the U-bahn.
Thank you again for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to see you again in Berlin.
Have a nice day.
