We had a private room with shared facilities and really enjoyed our stay. Comfortable, clean rooms and excellent facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay there again.

Even before we walked through the door at the Grand Hostel we were greeted with a smile and a friendly 'hello'. The staff are definitely one of the contributing factors to this being a '5 star' hostel. The rooms were clean and very spacious, the showers and wc were also kept incredibly clean and we loved the ingenious idea of having timed showers - great way to save water. The hostel operates free walking tours in the surrounding areas and Thilo who takes these is just fantastic. They also have meet and greets in the afternoon where the other staff are there to answer questions and generally have a chat. All of the staff are very knowledgeable when it comes to local places to eat and recommended several places where the 'locals' go. There are nearby pubs, cafes and restaurants and it is very close to two major metro stations, plus the bus stop nearby has buses that will take you directly into the main train station. Also the Jewish museum is only a ten minute walk from the hostel, well worth a look if you have the time.
Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Berlin and I can not wait to go back to see everyone there!

I stayed in a private a private single room . The price is very reasonable, I would say cheap, considering what`s on offer. The hostel is right in the heart of Berlin, clean The room was really spacious and comfortable; They also served a very reasonable priced breakfast from €2, & all sorts of hot/cold drinks. It just feels like you`re sharing a big house with a bunch of friends; as you arrive, they welcome you with a cup of hot chocolate, & offer you a free Berlin map.
I definitely recomend this hotel

Excellent place to stay.
Friendly + helpful staff (especially when we had to stay an extra night because of the volcano - they did their best to help us), clean, convenient, reasonably priced. Several services available. I would definitely recommend the Grand Hostel to friends of all ages.

Because the Meet & Greet sessions and the free tours were at 11am we didn't take advantage of these - 11am is a bit late when you've only got 3 days to discover Berlin.

At 42, I'd pretty much decided not to do the hostel thing again, but thanks to being disorganised, plus it being the Berlin Film Festival and Valentine's Day, the other options we tried were booked so we ended up here. But it all worked out beautifully, because the Grand Hostel is a treasure. Clean, inexpensive, spacious and comfy rooms in a beautiful old building (formerly a Bishop's house). The breakfasts were so cheap and tasty we had them every day. And the staff were charming and never less than helpful (book us on a tour to Tempelhof Airport) when my schoolboy German failed). If you're a party animal you're probably better going elsewhere for your kicks, but for anyone looking for something calm, sweet and great value, I can't recommend it enough.

I'd really highly recommend visiting the Grand Hostel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hostel is new so it's clean, modern and feels very safe. It's one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!
