A&O Hostel was a drop off for the Busabout route so we thought we'd give it a go... bad descision.
The place is in the middle of the very run down outskirts of the city (next to some kind of anarchist commune). It's a long walk in a scary area to find any restaurants, metro stops or convenience stores.
We stayed in a private room. We'd booked a double bed, but the gave us 2 singles. The beds were hard wood with a thin piece of foam as a matress. I hardly slept the 2 nights we were there. It was like a rock. Having said that, the room was clean (Germany after all) and the private bathroom was good.
The breakfast rooms were busy and like being on a school camp. masses of people lined up trying to get their hands on some pretty terrible food.... wait... I just remebered... there was a school camp there! 3 busloads of teenagers were staying.
There was no free wifi, it was a coin operated system in the bar.
Overall a pretty sad place - spend the extra money and stay somewhere closer to the action, or at least with a decent bed.
