Grand Hostel Berlin

Reviewed April 30, 2014

Good deal, celan bathroons, friendly staff. The Grand hostel is close to the subway (half block) and for those who like a real German breakfest, there is a restaurant just next to the building. We paid 6 euros, wich was a fair price.
All information you need can be obtained at front desk, they are always prompt to help. The only downpoint is that the building doesn´t have elevator, but this was not a big deal for us.
I recomend this place.

I was impressed not only by the stunning beauty of the common areas but of the entire facility. The rooms were gorgeous with comfortable single beds (instead of bunk-beds) in the shared room I stayed in. There were warm, crisp and clean white sheets and comforters on all the beds, and full-length lockers for everyone. The bathrooms were super clean and I never waited in queue. The service was impeccable. Wifi was very fast and uninterrupted. I cant say enough great things about this hostel. I would recommend it to anybody. It honestly was the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in.

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hostel Berlin in April, 2014. The common reception room are very welcoming and comfortable. Upon arrival a staff member offered us a beverage and gave us a good introduction to Berlin as to sights, transportation, and restaurants. A staff member carried our heavier luggage to our room and REFUSED a tip. (You won't find that in a five star hotel.) We had a good size room with a window that actually opened fully. (Another thing that is becoming rare in hotels.) The room was very clean as was the shared bath.
We had the buffet breakfast next door at Grandma's which was very good, reasonable, and catered to many cultural tastes.
The only improvement would be larger and somewhat more private shower facilities.
.

Room Tip: 106 is across from the bathroom and the window opens to a courtyard area rather than the street.

I stayed here for a weekend with a friend and we loved our stay! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The building was very nice and clean. Great location close to the sights, but far enough away so that you're in a quiet neighborhood. Wifi worked really well throughout the hostel. I highly recommend!

The hostel is clean and tidy with friendly staff. The bed was really comfortable after walking round the town all day. Would definately stay again. The outside area is peaceful and a good place to have a drink and unwind.

I've stayed here for two weekend nights in April and it was a positive experience.

The hostel is located in the Kreuzberg area and close to a metro station (metros run all night in Berlin!). If you arrive at Berlin Tegel airport, take bus X09 or 109 to Jakob Kaiser Platz. There take the metro and get of at Muckernbrucke. At this metro station get out at the exit where the florist is, turn right and after 100 meters you'll see the hostel.

At the reception we had to wait for 10 minutes but then we got our code for the room, a map and explanations on where to go, quite helpfull! The room was large, beds were okay. The bath room down the hall was small but clean. We didn't have breakfast. Service was good, the only thing that wasn't okay was the fact that an employee entered our room without knocking an hour before checkout saying that we had an hour left. There is a bar with a lot of books and they organize all kinds of activities. All the awards on the wall prove that they care about giving a good service.

Overall a good experience, definitely recommendable!

I stayed here during my last trip to Berlin in March 2014. Good location and clean rooms. Since I only had two days to explore the city, I also got a lot of useful suggestions from the friendly staff on how to get around Berlin and see the best part of the city.
