“Nice hostel”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Pros: Very friendly and helpful reception staff, excellent breakfast, big wardrobes with lock (fits a large suitcase), very close to a couple of subway stations.

Cons: No curtains around the beds, no individual outlets in the room, no elevator, see-through glass in shower boxes.

This hostel is amazing! It has gorgeous rooms, everything it's very clean, great location and so helpful and friendly stuff. You can choose to have breakfast until 11 a.m. with 6.20 euros but you have a great choice there and the girls are so nice. If you visit Berlin, definitely that's the place to stay in !!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't plan to change your booking days at the day when you arrive, because it has many reservati...

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.
