We have stayed here a number of times when visiting Berlin. It is very affordable with nice rooms and facilities. Staff are approachable and helpful. Also a great location - just a few minutes walk from Potsdamer Platz.

Great looking building (old monastery). Staff was ridiculously helpful and around 24 hours a day if you needed anything. Close to a stop on the train. Not the most central of spots but still in but close enough to see sights and come back to your room for some quiet.
I liked that you could buy beers here if you just felt like chilling. The place is ridiculously clean and the private rooms are quiet and comfortable. I was also able to use lockers for a small fee and keep my luggage in storage after I checked out.
Only drawback is that some of the groups that come to stay are quiet young (like highschool age or younger.) It was never a problem - just if you're if you're looking to meet folks in the 20-30 age range it's not the best place. Fine for me though.

Great location.
Massive kitchen (on top floor) that allows a number of groups to cook and eat at the same time (very sociably) and there is a well stocked average priced supermarket around the corner.
Very 'cool' communal area and bar.
Good security in the rooms but the bar and outdoor seating area is open to public so be careful
Lovely staff, very chatty and full of great advice.
Breakfast is about E5 but given the kitchen not sure its worth it.

Only real downside was the many stairs! There is a lift but it can take about three people...

Me and my friends stayed only for one night in Berlin and it was really worth it coming to this hostel. The rooms are very clean, the staff is excellent and very helpful. And of course, the location of the hostel is perfect, you can see all the attractions without taking buses or trams, because the hostel is 10-20 mins away from all the attractions such as the raich-stag, the berlin wall, ect.
In one word: perfect!!

What a fantastic place. I had high expectations given the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Really nice people at the reception and they're up 24hrs a day. We slept there on a Friday night, didn't book for the Saturday as we were going to party all night but we were able to leave our bags there for free (£5 deposit for the lock) which was great. We came back on the Sunday morning to pick up the bags and they happily let us stay in the common room and I just paid £5 for breakfast. The rooms were clean and tidy and the shower worked great, which isn't always the case in cheap youth hostels. Very good atmosphere overall, we stayed in the common room quite late on the Friday night as we could buy beers and play pools. Perfectly located as you can go pretty much everywhere from there, especially Kreuzberg, Potzdamer Platz, and Mitte. I would definitely go back there on my next trip to Berlin.

Room Tip: Rooms with bathroom are worth the extra money

Me and my girlfriend stayed in a double room last week, the room itself had a great standard of general cleanliness and presentation. Furthermore the room included a private bathroom for a very reasonable price of around £120 for the two of us for the three days we stayed there, again the bathrooms cleanliness and state of repair was exemplary. The hostel itself was lovely, located inside an old nunnery it was spacious and had a real air of history about the place, I particularly like the oak paneled walls of the communal area! The location of the hostel within Berlin couldn't have been better, just off a busy street (but somehow immune from the noise) in Kreuzberg, its about 650m or 5 mins from Potsdamer Platz and all the attractions that offers. There's also a u-bahn station with good links to the rest of the city virtually outside the front door. I didn't sample the breakfast unfortunately (we were up far too late each day), but from my contact with the staff everyone was very friendly and willing to help with anything we needed. In fact my only complaint was the policy of no self catering where alcohol was concerned but this is perfectly understandable and hardly worth a mention. All things considered I would recommend the three little pigs to absolutely anyone, be that families, couples, backpapers or groups on the Berlin party hype, all were present in something resembling harmony during our stay. I hope to be back in spring 2013 to explore Berlin and party, cheers three little pigs!

Room Tip: room 104's a peach ;)

We had a double room which was a good size and a private bathroom which was good and very clean. Rooms were quiet away from main hostel common room. Good common room with booths and pool table. About 20 min walk from the kruezberg cafes and bars but bus goes from right outside. Breakfast was ok, can get better for the 5 euros down the road.
