There is not one negative thing I can say about my stay at Riverside. After travelling around Europe and staying in party hostels, Riverside was a breath of fresh air. It was a home-away-from-home in the middle of trendy Kreutzberg. Perfect position. The beds were comfy and the room spacious. I loved only having 10 or so other visitors, we all went out for dinners (on Enrico's amazing advice) and I have made friends for life having stayed there for just 4 days. Enrico, the owner, is helpful beyond belief and an all ground awesome guy!
Would recommend this a thousand times and will definitely be back!
Thanks again Enrico!
Bonnie.

The owner was very helpful, lots of tips and local knowledge. The private room was large, access to a kitchen and bathroom (shared with only one other room). GREAT restaurant on the corner!! The markets next door are also worth looking around.

What can I say about this place? Never have I been to a less "hostely" hostel than this one. It is basically a small apartment run by one of the nicest and funniest guys you will ever meet, which accomodates less than 15 people.

No reception desk to check in or out (you simply collect your key in a storage box and drop it off when you leave), a little audio cable hanging near the refrigerator so you can plug in your own music in the loungeroom speakers, free tea/coffee/internet, a small kitchen - small enough that mess never accumulates unlike other hostels I've been to (and worked in) where there are so many pots, pans and people that nothing gets cleaned properly - with a convection stovetop, though you will never need to use it with awesome cheap food surrounding you in every direction, including great markets by the river a few times a week.

The larger 6-bed dorm offers a lot of privacy with large curtains surrounding your bed and locker, while the smaller 4-bed is better suited to small groups of friends travelling together. The beds are comfy as hell, the two bathrooms with showers are always immaculately clean, and Enrico (the man in charge) will tell you everything you need to know to eat, drink and party your way through your visit to Berlin. If you're friendly, considerate and you don't snore so loud you wake people up, stay here, if you can book it!

I've stayed at many hostels in Europe, and this is the best ever! It's in perfect location, near the river and the food market and weekend market is just around the corner! You can rent a bike and get around very easily. The place itself is tiny, but I very much like its size, because you get to know everyone who stays there! I stayed in the room with six beds, and the upper beds are king-sized! They are not like the normal two-level bed bunks, the upper bed actually is placed on a "roof" that allows you more room to place stuff and move around, and it's so cool! The owner is friendly, helpful and interesting too, who opens this hostel for 7 months during a year and the rest 5 years he goes on vacation in Thailand. I'm very happy to see the different lifestyles of other people during travelling, maybe I can try that in the future too! :-) Berlin is a very special city, mixing all types of culture and living styles. I would definitely come back, and stay at riverside lodge too!
