The Grand Hostel @ Berlin is a majestic place ....regal..elegant...spacious and huge bright rooms... a strikingly picturesque library and waiting area.

The hostel is a 15-20 minute bus ride from the Berlin HBF Train Station and then a ten minute easy walk.

I stayed at the Hostel for just one night but the stay was pleasant and very positive.

They have a cute little restaurant next door called 'Granma' or something like that ..its a lovely little european restaurant that serves lovely breakfast!

The staff at the Grand Hostel is very warm and helpful too.

All in all, an absolute recommendation for this Hostel for any young traveler!!

Overall this was a very good place to stay.

Downsides I can think of:
1. No kitchen facilities.
2. Occasionally the electronic door lock didn't work when entering the code, and it took a few minutes before the door would finally unlock. I'm sure I was entering the code correctly, and I heard that others had the same problem.
3. This didn't happen to me, but I saw it happen to two other people - the guy working at the bar didn't give them their change; he just assumed he could keep it as a tip. Pretty bad in my opinion.

But the positives outweighed the negatives and I would happily stay there again.

Stayed here for five nights.  No bunk beds.  Decent breakfast buffet next door.  They have a cellar which they let me put my bike in at night - great for a touring cyclist.  They sit you down with some coffee or tea when you check in and go over the main sights of the city and ask you about your interests.

This was a great hostel to stay in. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean, and the prices really affordable.
It's location is close to the U-bahn, so it's easy to get around to other parts of the city, it's also located close to the Technical museum and a big park, wich was great for a stroll in the sun.
You could get a great breakfast offer at the café next door, there was a lot to choose from, so I can recommend that.
On wednesdays they even have free pasta for all their guests and also afternoon tea every day.
This place seems more like a hotel then a hostel!

Great location in Kreuzberg, really close to U-Bahn so easy to get around. Staff were all so lovely and eager to help point us in the right direction for things to do. Hostel was amazingly clean as well. On Sunday they had music, beers and bbq on the outside terrace - awesome! Would deffo recommend.

Great hostel, staff were brilliant. Met with a welcome coffee and a city orientation brief, really helpful. The bar was very well stocked with a large range of German beers and cocktails, all at reasonable prices. Morgan the bar chap runs a great bar and was very welcoming and great to chat. Ill be back next time I visit which after staying here won't be long.

An extraordinary place in Berlin! More like a very good hotel! We wished that the doors should have had some sort of sound absorbing closure. But - my group and I loved to stay in this friendly and caring hostel! Very high standard! Thank you!
