Certificate of Excellence

This hostel is fairly new but seems to run very smoothly. The general hostel and rooms are nicely decorated and very clean, warm and spacious. We stayed in a double room with an ensuite and it was better than some hotels we've stayed in. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location of the hostel is good for getting round Berlin because you are just round the corner from Hermannplatz U-bahn. I would recommend checking out some of the restaurants and bars in the local area too.

Berlin has a plethora of hostels and deciding which one depends on one's priorities. Staying in a clean, comfortable and new hostel that provided great value was our objective, knowing the location was slightly outside the central area but with easy and convenient public transportation, it was manageable. From Tegel airport, there was the TXL bus to Alexanderplatz, then changed to subway to Hermannplatz. From Hermannplatz, it was located only couple hundred metres away. Hostel website's direction was accurate and easy to follow. I was able to check in early into my twin private room at 10am, even though my partner booked the room and he was to arrive later. the service at front desk was excellent and helpful.

The twin room was spacious with enough room for huge suitcases; there was a desk and chair for writing, hooks, hangers and storage space for clothing. Towels and sheets were included in the price, as well as continental breakfast and tea was available throughout the day in the kitchen. The shared bathroom was huge including sink, toilet and shower combination, with heated floor and equipped conveniently for handicapped guests. There was additional sinks and toilets on the floor. An additional shower would be great during busy time.

The hostel was purposedly-built with travelers in mind. It has a huge kitchen with all amenities, including dishwasher!! The bed was comfortable and comforter was very warm. There was reading light and electrical outlet for each bed. The wi-fi worked great even in the room. The hostel had lockers for luggage storage and even provided locks if required.

Overall, one of the best hostel and provided great value for its convenience and location. Highly recommended for the twin room.

We loved our time at the The Cat's Pajamas! Cool area, friendly staff - offering great tips - clean, funky spaces and a fun vibe. 10/10! (Would be great to have use of an iron). A near perfect hostel.

This is a brilliant hostel- its brand new and we coudn't have asked for more really. I stayed in a room with 5 others, it wasn't cramped at all, we had our own bathroom, toilet and large shower. It felt more like a hotel to be honest. The only thing was it was quite noisy at night because it is located on a main road but otherwise I would highly recommend it.

Came here with a large group (40+) of students. Really loved this hostel; clean, warm, comfortable, spacious, to be honest I would have paid more for what we got, really excellent value. Staff are so friendly and laid back too, and very helpful. It is located less than a minutes' walk from the Hermannplatz train stop, so is very easily accessible from the city centre. Definitely would come back here if I was in Berlin again!

This was by far the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in, would recommend it to anyone visiting Berlin. Rooms were excellent value, clean and comfortable with en suite bathroom and shower room. Kitchen was HUGE and well well-equipped and breakfast was included for free. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful or accommodating. Location was also great, in a nice area and less than 2 minutes walk from the U bahn.

The rooms were well maintained, clean and well designed bathrooms. All the appliances one would need in a kitchen. Close to an ubahn station and close to shops and many other services. Best hostel I've ever stayed in, friendly staff and great security!
