“Efficiently good”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Although it isn't centrally located, it does have an S Bahn right outside the building. One stop and your in the centre, then you are free to go where you want - After leaving my room I could be anywhere in Berlin within 15 minutes - very quickly.

The hostel also features: a cafeteria, laundry service, free wifi, indoor lounge with TV, 24 hour access to the hostel and staff who are always happy to help regardless of the time.

There are a few things to be aware of:

The staff were extremely polite and helpful when I had to contact them and where always available to answer any questions I may have had.

In terms of location the hostel isn't too far out. There is plenty of bars, cafés, restaurants and coffee houses around. You are also only 5 minutes away from the river.

When I go back to Berlin, I won't stay anywhere else. Meininger all the way.

I organised a stag do in Berlin, with 10 of us staying at the Meininger Hotel.
Great location, within walking distance of the center of Berlin.
Clean rooms, modern shower / bathroom.
I was surprised by how high the standard was for the price. Definitely value for money.
A little bit noisy when people filter in back from the clubs, but the staff did well to control any issues.

Although it is located in a very central area and on a bustling street, and although it was a German holiday when I stayed, it felt peaceful in the hotel. Mostly thanks to the staff, who had good, clear and positive answers to most of my inquiries.
Clean, safe, nicely decorated, convenient, good choice.

Great to hear that we were able to make your stay at MEININGER Hotel Berlin Mitte a nice and peaceful one.
The hotel is located in a very central area indeed, with walking distance to most of the main sights and lots of restaurants and attractions.
Why not check out our hotels in Amsterdam or Salzburg, next time you`re travelling around Europe?

If you are travelling alone and want to meet people, do not come in this hostel. I cant really call it as a hostel, its more like a hotel with dorm rooms. Staff was kind of nice but they were not travellers themself so they did not really be a good staff for a hostel.

Place is clean, rooms has a toilet and shover and lockers.

Because hostel is huge, there is a lots of people wich makes it kind of impossible to sleep.

Im not coming back.

Room Tip: Ask a room with a windows pointing inner yard.

To us it`s very important to know what our guests think that we can work on.
We are a very mixed hotel indeed and do our best to make everyone feel welcome, no matter the purpose of travel, might it be a family trip, business or backpacking..
Next time, why not socialise in our spacious guest kitchen, often used by backpackers to meet fellow travellers? Maybe you find the athmosphere which you were looking for right there?
We would love to welcome you again and hope to convince you next time!

My friends and I had a terrible stay at this hotel/hostel.

At first we had reservation at their other hotel next to the main train station of Berlin. We went there at 10:30 AM to leave our luggage and to take a tour around Berlin, because the check-in was after 3 PM. We showed the ID card of the man who had reserved the room and they gave us a key for the luggage room. We thought everything was ok, until we went there at about 8:30 PM to get into our room. That was not the case however. They said that it is their mistake, but they allready gave our room to other person. After 15 minutes of wondering how to get out of the situation they offered us to go to their our hotel, which was Meininger Hotel Berlin Mitte Humboldthaus.

We all thought that because of their mistake they will pay us at least the taxi to the other hotel, or something. They did nothing. The other Hotel/Hostel was not as good as location from the other hotel on the same PRICE. Everything else was ok, instead of the wifi and a group of youngsters that doesn't want to sleep till 3 AM.

Dear guests,

first of all we would like to apologise for this inconvenient matter and hope you still had a nice time exploring Berlin.
MEININGER Hotel Berlin Mitte still is right in the heart of the city and lots of sights, attractions, restaurants and cafes are easily reachable by foot.
However, this is under no circumstances what should have happened and definetely not the norm.
We have already talked to the responsable parties and are confident to say, this will not happen again. If you are willing to give MEININGER Hotels a second chance, this would be highly appreciated. We will do our best to make your stay very comfortable!

Take care,
your MEININGER Team

My friend and I stayed at the Meininger Berlin for a couple of nights in April, and had a great time! The staff is very informative and helpful. They gave us great recommendations on places to eat, the most efficient way to see some of the sights (the train system takes a while to get used to in Berlin), and were able to answer pretty much any question we had. Security is great, as there is a 24 hour concierge. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. Beds were comfortable and clean. Bathrooms were clean. Location was great as it is walking distance to most sites. I couldn't ask for a more pleasant stay! Only thing that turned me off a bit was that they charged to use their computers, wi-fi is free so make sure to bring a laptop or smart phone. I stayed at the Meininger in Munich, and they let guests use their computers (with internet) for free.
