“Great location, great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Just stayed here last week. Rooms clean, nice roomy bathrooms. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful giving advice for what to see, and handing out maps, etc. We could not get connected to the internet from our room, but they have 4 computers in the lobby and we had no problem getting on those and doing what we needed to. This is a huge place that serves a lot of people, but you can't beat the price. Location is really close to Berlin Artist Wall and a Lido (small store). Walk not very far to the train which takes you everywhere.

Room Tip: For the budget minded traveler this is a great find.

I stayed here in October 2013 with my father to 'show him Berlin,' and we were not disappointed, and pleasantly surprised by the standard of the accommodation. The atmosphere was relaxed without being sloppy and inefficient. The room we had, a twin en suite was absolutely huge - possibly the biggest hotel room I've ever stayed in. Unfortunately that made the television look very small, but you can't have everything!

Ok, 'Plus' points (get it? I crack myself up)

1) Clean, well maintained room with everything you need to be comfortable
2) Location - two stops on the S Bahn away from Alexanderplatz - you are basically in the centre of Berlin in under 10 minutes, and you are 5 minutes walk from the station.
3) Staff were very friendly and helpful - incredibly bi, tri whatever lingual and happy to accommodate anything you needed.
4) 'Happy Hour'. So from 5-7 a bottle of wine is €5. Having often paid £5.50 for a glass of wine in not particularly fancy restaurants in England, this was brilliant, and the bar was well staffed and the music cool, but not intrusive.
5) East Side Galley literally on your doorstep, and supermarket opposite the hotel.

Negatives - if I had to be picky, and it was only a minor annoyance, the showers could really use an upgrade. They are the swimming bath, need to press them after 10 second types to keep them running, and regulating the temperature in them defies any logic.

It's a British thing I know, but it would have been nice to have a kettle in the room. Just saying, though I realise how antiquated our 'tea and coffee making facilities' thing is in our country, but even so, would have been nice.

I'm not going to pick on Wifi as a lot of distinctly more expensive hotels do not have this, and it served purpose for occasional web browsing, but don't expect to be able to Face Time and stream movies. It's a big building with a lot of people who all want to use it - and there are plenty of Wifi hotspots in Berlin you can make use of.

So all in all, we had a great time, we sampled the food in the restaurant which was no nonsense but filling, and we would definitely recommend Plus Berlin to friends. In fact when and not if I go back to Berlin, it seems like a natural choice.

This hostel is perfectly situated and is a two minute walk from a station. It has clean, tidy and modern rooms with an individual light and power point. The food was actually great at this hostel and is a good place to fill up before a night out. The feel and atmosphere of the place was good and it felt safe and secure - recommend!

We have just stayed here for a friends 50th birthday. Better than what I expected. very clean, rooms were very spacious, with good facilities. The bar and dining area was very good very friendly and helpful staff. A nice swimming pool. The reception staff were very good, and informative. It is well situated next to the tram and rail links. Get your self a Berlin card, This allows you unlimited travel on the trains, trams or buses, for a set period of time, we had 48 hour tickets, a must if you want to see all of Berlin. You can buy individual tickets or even better get a group one which is a lot cheaper. So much to see.

Room Tip: Get one that faces into the court yard, as they have lower window sills compared to the outer facing...

Plus hostel was so funky I loved it! The rooms were huge for hostel rooms and had 2 showers which was awesome! The artwork and the alternative vibe made it for me. Try to buy some art and support the talented artists that live onsite.

Room Tip: Choose a 6 bedder if you want space

1) room was huge and value for money
2) service was good too. Staff at the reception were helpful and some were friendly. There was a day my friend bought the breakfast buffet and we didn't know it ended at 11am. We had not gotten our coffee and asked if we could get a cup. Initially one of the restaurant staff said it has closed. But shortly after there was another staff reception who was there brought us 2 cups. Nice gesture i thought.
3) internet is very poor in the room.
4) shower facilities - no hot shower at all. water was just too cold for any shower.
5) accesible to metros
6) near to a supermarket and Berlin easy side gallery

Stayed at the Berlin Plus recently, following a recommendation from someone I know and I was not disappointed.

The location of the hostel is good, with good public transport links into the centre of Berlin. You're also a short walk away from Friedricshain and Kreuzberg, for a night out. The East Side Gallery too is literally a few minutes walk away and well worth a visit.

We used the hostel shuttle service to get from the airport, which again, was well worth it and worth the cost to take out the hassle.

The room we had was a private one and was pretty basic, but what you'd expect for the price. The bar and restaurant area is very nicely done and the prices reasonable. I feel that more could be made of the social side in the hostel, as this was a bit disappointing. There is a common room on the 3rd floor, but this has seen better days.

You get free wi-fi when staying (although it was poor quality - slow and often not working at all). There is a swimming pool and sauna that is well worth a visit after a long day out sight-seeing too!
