A great hostel in central Berlin for a great price. The room was very clean as was the bathroom and the front desk staff were very helpful. Would certainly use again without hesitation. We were a group of 5 friends and shared a 5 bed dorm room.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled with friends

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Clean, great location, stylish, spacious, most helpful staff I have come across in a hostel, good breakfasts. This is a great hostel, and although has a lot of youngsters there, the walls and doors seem to be so thick because you rarely got woken up by anything! Private bathrooms in the dorm was a big plus!!! Will definitely come to this hostel again when I next visit berlin.

Had an amazing time, the Hostel was always full of young people,
The downstair bar had always football on, the food and drinkes where cheap and tasty.
The staff was very helpfull, and the breakfast was very nice, i recomend it for going with friends, Berlin is a super busy party town.

Room Tip: i stayed in the 24 bed room, it was really big, no problem

Positives:as everybody mentions it is in a very central place near to most of the spots and sites. The staff is helpfull in anything you may require also the free wifi and the 24hour reception is a plus.

Negatives: upon arrival the bedsheets where not clean (actually i believe that they had put them on the floor while making the bed and there was dust on them). After calling the reception a very gentle chinese lady came and changed them. Unfortunatelly during all of our stay nobody never cleaned the floor, something that explains the dust all over the room also on the bed, furnitures and our clothes, something that you do not really wait when you are paying arroung 60 euros for a double Studio, without breakfast and linen changing(the breakfast and the linen in the hostels are not included in the rate), which as a room was good, but the not clean at all.

In general, as this hostel-hotel was reccomended from a friend, i believe that it might be good for its hostel services, but for people that seek a clean and value for money hotel, it is really not reccomended. there are many hotels in the area with better rates(all this area is central by itself, you don't really have to be exactly in the center), more clean also included linen changing and of course offering in the rate the breakfast.

Berlin is a lovable city full of life with a very well organised 24hour metro-train system, so if the hotel that you will find is reachable by metro and between the zones A or B, that is the center of Berlin, do not hesitate to book it.

The hostel is very clean and comfortable, it feels more like a budget hotel than a hostel. The downstairs bar/restaurant is really convenient and serves a cheap and delicious breakfast (although the guy who works behind the counter there was incredibly rude). The neighborhood of the hostel is not particularly charming, but its safe and central (museums and restaurants close by). My only other criticism of BaxPax was that their WIFI is absolutely terrible (slow, disconnects constantly, and makes you log-in every time you turn on your computer).

Spent 4 days at this hostel in December. Had a private double room with double bed and ensuite - excellent value - could have have passed for a 4* hotel with ease! Room was cleaned every day, and was lovely and warm (something important when staying in December!)/Hostel wasn't noisy, but still had an atmosphere. Great location - easy to walk to a large amount of places, and only minutes from Friedrichstrasse station which is great since we got the train from the airport. Great wireless access from the rooms (although we were on first floor, not sure about signal elsewhere) - used to reassure parents we hadn't ran out of money! Bar was reasonably priced, but so is everything in Berlin! Would recommend this place every time and hope to return in the future!

This hostel is on the upper end for amenities. Bar, restaurant, social areas and key cards are all part of the stay. I stayed in a 4 person room which had 1 bunk bed and two twins. I had a shower/sink in the room but the toilet was the very next door outside of the room (had to use a key card and only my room could use it). Wi-Fi was great thought the building. Staff were helpful but the good thing is that the hostel had many scheduled events (both pay and free) that were a lot of fun. 3 minutes to the metro or 20 minute walk to some of the historic sites.
