Eastener Hostel
Ranked #48 of 358 Specialty Lodging in Berlin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Quite a way from the centre of Berlin so getting public transport is advised.

The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful, gave us an annotated map of Berlin telling us where to go, where to eat etc.

Double room was ok and we had "shared" shower and toilet, but they were just round the corner and each private room had their own. They are also very clean.

When we arrived we were greeted by a really friendly man, who I think was the owner. He spent about 15 minutes telling us about the hostel, the city, nice places to visit and eat - this was EXTREMELY helpful and really appreciated.

Our room which was a double, which was nice enough - comfy bed, a sink and a fan in the room. When we booked we were under the impression that we would have a shared bathroom - and although the bathroom itself was shared with another room, there was a shower and toilet specifically for our room, which was nice.

Good location, near tram and bus - definitely would visit again

Decent location (15 mins from major attractions) and excellent price. Very small and clean. Not a party hostel. Receptionist (Monique) was incredibly kind and helpful and always available. Only three bathrooms for all guests, so occasionally there were waits. Great breakfast places nearby and close to a metro stop. Overall a very nice stay.

I just left this hostel today and rushed to write a good review of it. For 3 nights I only paid €45, a great price. The location is great--very close to bars and restaurants and within walking distance from all the major sights in Berlin like the Brandenburg gate. This hostel has more comfortable beds than I have at home, down comforters and pillows, a kitchen with free coffee & tea, free wifi, clean bathrooms with 24 hour hot water and nice showers, and a great staff. Kai will be your personal travel planner and goes out of his way to give recommendations and makes sure you know how to get places. Staying here will ensure you have a fun and comfortable stay in Berlin.

This is one of my favourite hostels and I am so happy that I chose to stay here!

I wanted to stay somewhere that was in a good location and that was NOT a party hostel. The Eastener offered both of those things, as it promises on their website. It is also reasonably priced.

The dorm rooms were cosy and clean and included a sink and lockers in the room, which were very handy. I loved the duvet and pillows, too. The Wifi was excellent and for those without online access, the hostel provides a free computer to use.

The hostel is also VERY clean with a great little kitchen and common area, good showers, and easy-to-read information on sights to see and where to visit. Marylise, the Canadian lady at the front desk, was also very friendly and helpful.

The location is also excellent!! Cannot be beat. Close to everything and right next to the bus and the metro. And, you can come and go as you please, as entrance is regulated by a code for the door.

There was only one thing that was a little off. I stayed there for five nights and there were a couple of times when the front desk was left unattended for a few hours when the owner was supposed to work. Not a big deal, unless you need something!

Other than that, it was perfect! Thank you :)

In a great location as we walked to everything. If you prefer the train, a stop is very close. Very helpfull staff, gave us a map and drew in lots of options and places to go that would suit us. Good clean rooms and linen. Our room was a twin with private bathroom in the building next door.

Room Tip: The twin is very small!
