Really great hostel! Fantastic location in the centre of Berlin, interesting design, very-very-very friendly staff :) You can feel there like at home. Rooms are a little small, but beds are so comfortable and have a light. On the street you can find a lot of restorants and bars and metro is very close - about two steps from hostel!

First, the staff was fantastic, from the front desk to the bar. Check in was easy and they were eager to help with dining and dancing inquiries, quick to print maps and give advice. The room was new, clean and comfortable - the windows opened wide, the water pressure was great and the bed gave me a well needed rest. There is no TV but if you need a TV while on vacation . . . well, then. There is a lounge (with TV), bar, cafe, courtyard, etc. We could have used a bath mat and a soap dispenser in the shower but no biggie. Location is central. What else? We'll be back!

Room Tip: Rooms by the elevator may here the door slam (but I'll bet they will fix that - as the place is...

My first time in Berlin, and wow what a great city! I stayed here from Tuesday 23rd of April till Friday 27th! The hostel is located on Oranienburgerstrasse, which makes it very easy to explore Berlin by foot, since everything is so close! Great places to visit like the Brandenburger Gate, Spree River, TV tower, Gendarmermarkt, Museum Island and Reichstag are litteraly just minutes away! It cannot be more central!

Upon arrival the staff were very friendly and actually helped me with my exploration of the city. I personally like to go a bit more off the beaten track and the girl at the reception gave me some great galleries to visit (which I otherwise would have totally missed out on);)!

The hostel includes all you need, like linnen and towels, and facilities are exellent. I guess this hostel is different than most other hostels I stayed in, being more like a design / art style ho(s)tel, with really great looks! It also includes work from the same artist that also painted bits on the East Side Gallery! Bar was good and stylish and I was able to see the Bayern - Barcelona game, which was great!

Next year Ill be studying in Berlin, so will 100% come back to this place!
