Excellent place to be!

Location is superb! Close to main metro/train station Friedrichstrasse.
Breakfast buffet is just what you need and good price/quality.
Stayed in a double room with private bathroom. Very clean, good shower. Can be a little noisy if your window is at the garden side, but not too disturbing. (Bad pillows though.)
Great staff, friendly, helpful, enthusiast.

Definitely to be recommended!

Nice Hotel / hostel with mainly young travelers (sometimes a little noisy at night when they shout from their rooms with open windows).

At each floor, there is a mix of dorms and single and double rooms. All single and double rooms at each floor are close to the door leading to the elevator (this bulky door makes too much noise when it shuts automatically. Some cushion pad should be added)

The breakfast is good (although only pork meat, unfortunately) and the staff is generally professional and friendly (except one short sturdy heavily tattooed blond girl at the bar who has a terrible attitude and treat clients in a very rude manner)

Rooms are clean and well furnished. Private bathrooms are ok but there is not enough water (pressure) in the showers. The curtains in the rooms are not dark enough and the sun wakes you up at 8-9am in the morning (it gets extremely hot and full of light). There should be blinds.

The wifi system is from war times... you have to log in again every five minutes from a smart phone and you need an individual new login and password every day. It makes no sense at all and it is extremely annoying.

The lights in the TV - computer room are extremely bright and some little lamps should be changed or dimmed down.

The bar and restaurant area lack ventilation and sometimes people are sweating inside when it's actually cold outside in the streets (doors should be kept open).

As said above, most employees are (very) nice but there are a few who have an attitude (although not as extreme as the barmaid described above) and very little patience for questions, let alone specific requests. Some seem to believe they are in their house dealing with family members.
I can imagine it is hard for the manager to know who is nice to the clients and who is not though.

Best hostel ever, great atmosphere, great staff and great environment. However, there is no A/C inside the room, and the internet access is quite troublesome in this hostel.

All in all, great value of money and certainly will recommend this to other travellers.

This is definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It was only a short walk to Friedrichstrasse station and the Brandenburg Tor. Being on a budget we booked beds in the 30 bed dorm and hoped for the best. Well, I can say that I had a better sleep in that room than I have in a 4 bed dorm. The rooms are modern, spacious, spotless, and quiet! I was never once woken up by people coming in and out of the room. The hostel has everything you need all at your fingertips, the restaurant in the bar is great too! Excellent value for money. Other hostels need to take after this one!

Room Tip: Don't be scared off by the 30 bed dorm - it is a great value for your money, beds are comfortabl...

Quite possibly the best hostel I've stayed at so far. Amazing, bright, modern clean, hotel-like rooms. Welcoming bar and friendly staff, make this place an awesome choice for a place to stay and fantastic value for money. We had some slight issue when it came to pay but I think this was down to a bit of a language barrier. All in all the staff are friendly and the facilities are good. They have an IT room too which is handy and close to the subway.

Baxpax Downtown is definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed in! The Hostel is just a few minutes away from the Friedrichstraße station, and its atmosphereis AWESOME!!! Rooms and bathrooms are super clean. The staff is VERY helpful, and they speak many languages. I'd definitely choose it again when back to Berlin! 100% recommended!
