“Look no further, the best hostel ever!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stayed here for a stag do the end of May, being the best man I was obsessing on getting the right place so researched my butt off, & can say without a doubt found the best all round hostel in the world never mind Berlin! The building is massive with loads of rooms & helpful friendly staff, spacious, but simple rooms with a great shower & comfy bed, great bar/restaurant with plenty of tasty choices, over the road can befound the following, the Berlin wall, a quality nightclub called Matrix, the train to take you to the centre! & the cherry on the cake, cheap! Cost us just £47 for 3 nights! This place should be Number 1 on here!

While this hostel is in a great location and cheap i was very dosappointed with our room. I wasnt expecting anything fancy but was still let down. Maybe we just got a bad room but the shower was cold for the 3 days we stayed. It was one of those ones where you push a button and it only stays on for a little while at a time. The room was very hot with no way of cooin it down (windows didnt open). Beds were hard and uncomfortable and extremely creaky making it difficult to sleep. And although this is a temporary problem we also had construction going on in the hallway outside our room. A warning of this when booking might have been nice. If it wasnt for the poor room quality the place would have been great for what we needed as travellers in our early 20s with a hood bar and garden area.

What a great hostel! I stayed in one of the single hotel rooms, which were neat and clean, great bathroom facilities, spacious. Great wifi at the hotel with excellent spacious communal areas. Breakfast was only 6EU and definitely worth it. Dinner at the onsite restaurant was also well-priced and delicious. Location was great - only a short walk to East Side Gallery, and both U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations are within 5 mins walk, meaning you can access the entire city easily. Of course, there were busloads of Contiki/BusAbout tourists arriving everyday, but the staff were super-efficient, so the crowds cleared out quickly. I would definitely recommend PLUS Berlin. (and if you have stayed at PLUS Florence which is far lower quality than this, you will be pleasantly surprised with PLUS's Berlin Hostel).

Was there in couple, twin private room. Nice little room, clean. Bathroom good. Bed confortable.
Lively hotel full of around twenty years old people, but quiet at night. Good bar.
Bad point: dirty swimming pool area

The hotel/hostel Plus was great value for money and it was even more than we expected for the price and we recommended it to our friends.
We loved the garden it was sooooo relaxing :). We also brought our food there and it felt like a real picnic :). There is also a gaming room and a pool and a barbecue...so if you wish you can stay in for a day or two all you'll also enjoy it... but I prefer going around Berlin :)
Staff is really friendly and helpful. U bahn is less than 5 min and S bahn is less than 10 min on foot. The location is great for travellers that want to enjoy "alternative" Berlin and the neighbourhoods around.. there are also many bars and clubs near by..
Guests varied - young people, families and groups...but I believe is's a hotel for easy going people no matter the age...
Negative:
This is all the negative I can think of so you can make up your own mind :)
We had a superior double room: it's in the attic - no elevator to the 4th floor it goes only to the 3rd but it's not that much of a big deal. The room wasn't big but big enough for all we needed, the bathroom really nice - the only thing missing were some hooks/hangers/shelves or something to put your towel and toiletry bag but we managed.The bed was rather cheap but we had no trouble sleepling :)

I'll stay there again when in Berlin :)

Having stayed in a few hostels before this one I had an idea of what to expect. I have to say my expectations were completely blown out of the water. The hostel was more like a hotel than a hostel and if you hire out a room just with people you know then there is nothing that would separate this from a real hotel (apart from the high percentage of students).

The hostel is very well equip with a swimming pool, restaurant, football court, volleyball and table tennis. No doubt I have missed out some of the hostels others amenities. My point is that it is very well equip.

The hostel isn't in central Berlin but it is located five minutes from a train station and about ten from a section of the old Berlin Wall. The city centre is very easily accessible, requiring you to only take one train.

I would happily stay in this hostel again and really can't think of anything bad to say about this place.

The place is very clean and seems like it's new. The staff is very helpfull and friendly. The prices are good and it's close from the S-bahn. The only problem was that we were looking for an hostel with a lot of young people ready to party and this place looks more like an hotel. There were families and big groups staying there but our stay at Plus Hostel allowed us to relax a bit and be in a more comfortable place for a few days during our Eurotrip.
