“Cheap and cheerful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Definitely a hostel...don't let the small 's' inserted between the 'o' and the 't' fool you into thinking that it is a hotel...

If your expectation is that of a hostel, the place won't be too bad...ablutions nice and clean, breakfast quite decent, area relatively quiet.

We travelled there in a large group, which is probably why they squeezed us into rooms - I reckon the three single beds in our room should have accommodated at most 2, but was more a single bedroom size... Beds and bedding were OK - problem is that we've stayed in the HI hostels in both Munich and Hamburg, where the standard was just simply superior, so my review is probably a bit biased...

Locationwise, it is a bit of a walk to the nearest underground station, but quite doable (even during winter and through the snow). Fabulous Italian restaurant opposite hostel, and shopping area around station very decent.

They have a laundry room, and pay-as-you-go internet.

Would I stay there again? I would probably shop around for something closer to central Berlin - but if the price is far better and I'm only staying a night or two, I might consider it. Just be aware that it is definitely a hostel...

Happy Bed Hostel was my choice for a city break in Berlin during the Carnival of Cultures. One of the best sleeping conditions that I ever had in a hostel were here. I really enjoyed the friendly staff, available 24/24 h, free wi-fi and good location next to the u bahn station. Rooms are clean, with large bathrooms.
