Reviewed February 20, 2012

U inn is an outstanding small hostel with a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Both our room and the bathrooms were very clean and the shower was excellent.

U inn hostel is very small -only two floors- and located near the Samariterstraße U-Bahn station.

Room Tip: Be sure to arrive before 1 am (or call the hostel if you might not make it before that time). U inn...

I spent only one night at U Inn Berlin and was alone in the dorm so I didn't really meet anyone there. It was rather quiet at night, which I enjoyed a lot. Good sleep.

The hostel was easy to find, close to a metro stop and a big avenue with all kinds of shops one can need.

The place in itself was clean, spacious enough, the common room was enjoyable and clean. Bathroom was not private but it was fine as the hostel didn't seem crowded at all.
Good rates too, except I didn't like their extra tax thing, though it wasn't high.

Room and kitchen are clean. Bathroom is not that clean but it's ok. There were no curtains on the windows, so you wake up with the sun on your face. Reception was ok. There were 2 computers with internet to be used by the guests. Nice common room with tv, music and books about travels.
It's very far away from the city and after a while it's a bit annoying having to change stations in the subway to get there. But it's an interesting neighborhood. Lots of restaurants, bars and alternative shops.

The U Inn hostel is a small hostel (about 35 beds) and well equipped to handle that amount of guests. The hostel is not a party hostel, even though the staff really knows what's going on in Berlin and some of the big party places are quite nearby. At night it is very quiet in the hostel so I've always had a good nights sleep here.

At first I wasn't sure if it would be easy to get to any of the sights, but there is a metro line and s-bahn station really close to the hostel (Frankfurter Allee) that will take you to Alexanderplatz in 10 minutes. Excellent hostel, I would definitely stay here again (and have done that so far 4 times).

I really enjoyed my stay at U inn Berlin. The place is very clean, staff very nice!
I found the location good, close to subway. It´s not in the center of Berlin, but I find Friedrichshain a very interesting neighborhood, with lots of bars and restaurants.
Really enjoyed! Would definetely stay there again!

A very comfy and homey hostel! It is clean and has comfortable beds! A lovely lounge area with tv and tons of flyers about Berlin (pretty much planned my boyfriend and my trip off of them!) the staff is nothing but nice and accommodating. They speak english which was very helpful. Free wifi as well. Also have computer if you do not have a laptop. Breakfast was a good deal for only 2 euro (cereal and toast) but there are many little bakeries very close by that are delicious too! It is a great location as there are a few shops and many delicious restaurants! Xxl pizza was a favorite :)
The only downside were the showers. Only two for all the girls but the hostel was fully booked while I was there and never ran into crowds. But it did plug up and it was rather uncomfortable to stand in the slowly using dirty water.
But I'd still definitely recommend this hostel!!!

the best hostel i have ever stayed...8 nights prove it! If I had to make up a new word for cleanliness that would definitely be u-inn;) the stuff was also very helpfull and although i wasn't crazy about sharing a room with 7 other people (couldn't book anything else by the time I decided to go to Berlin) I must say it was the cosiest place I've ever slept...keep up the good work and hope to visit again soon...
