“Excellent value for single rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Stayed for two nights on December. First of all, it is a blend of hostel and hotel, it is quite busy and has a level of service far more akin to hostel than hotel. The property is huge, requiring a reasonable amount of elevator - stairs - walking to get to our room. But the room was terrific, far beyond our expectations for the bargain price we paid. Located on a top floor, facing the inner patio, resembling a mini-loft and quite big, with private bathroom, minibar, two good single beds and really quiet (considering how busy the property is). The only quibble was the shower, which needed a little upgrade to fix the sliding doors. Highly recommended for anyone on a budget, who is not looking for a hotel level of service but wants a decent place to spend a couple of nights.

Room Tip: If possible, request the room on the top floor, facing the inner patio, right on the corner opposite...

We have stayed in a female dorm on the first floor. The hotel-hostel itself is really nice and cosy,very modern and is more a hotel than a student budget staying place. But, it is pretty noisy at night coz of drunk musicians and metro. And more than that they have bed bugs... probably on the upper floor the situation is different,who knows...

Plus Berlin is a fantastic hostel! I will definitely be returning when i next visit Berlin.
Such a bargain, me and my partner stayed back in January 2012 for 3 nights in a Private double room with en suite, costing us only £100 for the pair of us.
Quite easy to get to if i remember, didn't take long to walk to from the nearest train station, everyone is friendly in Berlin, so don't hesitate to ask someone for directions as everyone is happy to help. In a good location also, round the corner from the Berlin wall, Watergate club etc.
The staff were so welcoming, helpful and friendly, they helped us with all our enquiries such as directions to clubs we wanted to go to, free tours etc The guy on reception even let me borrow a plug adapter so i could use my iPhone charger.
Everywhere was spotless, so clean!
It's very unique, has a funky/arty feel to it, like the majority of Berlin.
Our room was lovely, bed was comfy, had flatscreen TV with freeview, big wardrobe, ensuite had shower with toiletries in there. Room was cleaned everyday as far as i know. Slept well while we there as it's nicely quiet.
They have a room with a ping pong table, football table, sofas and i think a telly? Which is nice, as it brings people together, met 3 people in there and we ended up out with them.
The outside area seemed nice, although i didn't experience this properly as it was too cold in January to want to be out there haha but would be lovely in the summer to enjoy.
Didn't eat at the restaurant or use the bar as we were out a lot. But it looked really good for the price. Computers came in handy to keep in contact with the world.
Sauna was a nice luxury to relax in, the only downfall is the swimming pool only because it's not heated, it was freezing cold, not a big deal as everything else about the hostel is fantastic.
I 100% recommend here. Thanks for having us Plus Berlin, keep up the good work and to whoever is staying here whilst on their trip you'll love it, have a great time! :)

This place is great. It offers fantastic amenities. We stayed in a twin room with private shower, as good as many hotels I have stayed, at a better price. Breakfast is a 6 euro buffet that will keep you happy. The restaurant does Brest meals at good prices. The staff give good advice about what to see and how to get there to see it. It's near the East Side Gallery, a long stretch of the old Berlin Wall. Nearby Kreuzberg offers a great nightlife. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Berlin.

Easy to get to from the train and incredibly nice. Close to a night club and the restaurant had great food. The pool was cold but nice and so was the sauna. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Berlin!

Great hostel for the cash, shared a room with 3 others, €15-16/night, €6 very decent breakfast, bring a padlock for room locker or buy one for €3. Nice bar, great building, clean, 'hip' with nice art, very close to good connection U and S bahn, ~10-15 min to Alexanderplatz. Basic room, clean, creaky but comfy bunkbeds and no outside noise. Recommended for budget travel, private rooms available, but book well in advance and pay more of course.

PLUS Berlin was the best experience I've ever had in a hostel. It was impeccably clean and well kept. Free towels and linens, plus they're freshened everyday. Every room has an ensuite toilet/shower area, cleaned daily. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the area and willing to help whenever. They also offered a free yoga class when we were visiting. The prices were unbeatable. I stayed for 4 nights in early April and only paid €65. The location was nice; less than a five minute walk to the S Bahn, the U Bahn, and the East Side Gallery.I would recommend this hostel/hotel to anyone. There were plenty of students, families, and solo visitors staying here at the same time as us and no one really felt out of place. Safety and security were never an issue. I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: We went for the 4 Bed Female room. Plenty of space with massive in room lockers. Easy to make friend...
