“Best backpacker place ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This place is very clean, very good location near hauptbahnhof, and reasonably priced. Also its quiet as the rooms have an inner door that you can close to seal yourself off from the corridor. The shower is very good, powerful with hot water and the breakfast is also good. I would recommend this place to people on a budget if they stay in Berlin. Friendly staff. There is Wifi also.

They do have internet provided on computers downstairs but there is no microsoft word etc and you cant upload photos on those computers as there is restricted access to "my computer" on windows.

Good place.

For a basic hotel/hostel, this is moderately OK. However, German school parties who are unsupervised by their teachers and play loud music and drink copious amounts of alcohol while their teachers lock themselves away, did appear to be a common feature. The staff didn't seem all that bothered when several groups of guests complained. They did go up but it was all a bit ineffectual to be honest.

Having said that, it's fairly cheap for a capital city if you don't mind IKEA basic. The breakfast is really good.

The receptionists are multilingual but don't have a rush in them! Be prepared to wait while they slow time the paperwork to avoid making eye contact!

If you want to do Berlin on the cheap, this is one way to do it.

I was expecting a hotel similar to my previous experiences with hotels and hostels in this price category, but this one was very (really exeptionally very) clean and well preserved. The stuff was very friendly and helpfull, the position (about 15 minutes from the Berlin main train station) is a good one. I would definitely return there.

We found A & O Hostel to be a great place to finish our days in Berlin. Quiet rooms with reasonable space, clean and well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This hotel is cheap, and is satisfactory. It is near the Hauptbahnof train station, a 5-10 minute walk. Also near to bus stops (around 4?) so going to places will not be a problem. Bathroom and room is clean during my stay. There were also elevators, and they definitely have lots of rooms. I recommend this especially to budget travellers :)

The hotel is at the perfect place form the city center and especially form the main train station, only 5 min to it, to the gates of Brandeburg about 10 it depends on your speed. Though it is close to the station it is not loud and busy place, next to the prison park which is on the way interesting as well. Stuff is very polite and helpful. p.s. upon your arrival you will get a welcome drink in the hotel's bar on the roof with the nice panorama to the city.

Room Tip: As far as I understood the hotel is surrounded with quite streets, so there is no big difference.
