“A really friendly, warm hostel”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

This hostel was perfect. A real friendly atmosphere with great staff, in particular Max. You won't come across a cooler German! Top bloke.

I would definitely stop there again. I went on a stag weekend & even that wasn't an issue. The hostel even went out their way to enquire about Hertha Berlin football tickets for us.

If you get the opportunity, stay here.

Grand Hostel Berlin is one of the most friendly hostels I experienced whilst traveling Europe. The staff were extremely friendly and were there to help in anyway possible. They greeted me and my friends with a free cold beverage upon arrival. They also were very helpful in guiding us through the city via a map, and answered all questions we asked.
Me and my friends shared one room with four beds, the room was basic with two wardrobes but was very clean. There was a few problems however, one being that there was only one working shower on our floor, which made it difficult when numerous people needed to take a shower. The other discrepancy was the lack of air conditioning or fan equipment, as it was extremely warm in the room which gave us all a bad nights sleep.
The location was fairly good as it was in walking distance to all aspects of public transport. The hostel was only a short walk from the world famous kebab shop Mustafa kebab berlin, which did not disappoint.

The staff were very welcoming & friendly. Rooms very bright & clean. But VERY hot in summer. No fans & no Air-con. I woke up at 6am drenched in sweat! The hostel was booked out all weekend so I got promised by the new manager that I could get my money refunded for the 2nd night if I cancelled early the next morning. As expected, the manager had not conveyed this agreement to any of the other staff and she was off the next 3 days. Lost my 2nd nights money. Didn't hear back from the hostel for another 5 days. very unprofessional service. Needless to say I won't be staying here again.

The staff at the hostel is multi-lingual and will be able to help you with any inconvenience. The reception room and the bar are great areas to chill out, have a beer or simply sit down and pick a book from the giant library! We booked an ensuite, double room and everything was perfectly clean and in order. They left us a bottle of mineral water and candies on our pillows! highly reccomended! Extra clean, spacious and a young environment! Breakfast is available with a discount if you book in advance (5,90 instead of 7,50 euros) and it is served in a venue just next to the hostel which is furnished as a nice, cozy coffeeshop! It's a "all you can eat" breakfast, so you can help yourself how many times you want.

They have perfect room, perfect breakfast, and the best reception. Although I just stayed in Berlin for one day, with their advice, I still visited a lot of places and had a good time. If I visit Berlin in the future, I will choose Grand hostel Berlin again definitely.

Just PERFECT in all ways.... Try is if you go to Berlin, it will be a great part of your stay :) It was the most freindly staff I ever had meet in a hostel/hotel. The location is good near U and S-Bahn and not to far away it you just want to go. There is a cool mix with old furnitures and modern design... it is just cozy. It is not the last time I have been in Berlin, and I am sure that I now have found my "Berlinerhome".

Room Tip: no. 203 # 2nd floor with a nice view to the street # room for 5 persons

Awesome hostel! Very clean, nice sized rooms, staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Interesting point - the shower screens are transparent and the ground floor showers are co-ed but the disabled toilet has a shower and a lock if your concerned.

Would definitely recommend staying here!
