I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013.
The location is good as it is less than a 5 minute walk to the main station and Berlin metro and 10 minutes walk to the old town where there are a number of cheap restaurants around and a few supermarkets to buy food from.
The hostel has a living area with a number of sofas and full entertainment systems including a Wii, Playstation, movies and computers etc.
The kitchen area is fully equipped but I didn't use it as dinner was provided for free every night. This changed every night and was delicious. This made a social hostel as everyone gathered around at dinner time.
I stayed in a 6 bed dorm there were no bunk beds which was a plus. Price included bedding and a towel. Each bed ha a locker big enough to fit your bag in, a reading light and plug sockets. The only downside is the bedding isn't a great fit as the sheet kept coming off the bed which felt a bit unhygienic.
The rooms were very clean and were cleaned every day.
The wi-fi was excellent and could access it from the rooms.
There was one toilet between 6 people which probably would have been fine except we were on the ground floor which meant everyone in the lounge/kitchen etc also used it so there was always a queue.
There were two showers. The showers were very nice they were proper showers which were nice hot and powerful. They were separated by curtains allowing a private area to get changed into. In the shower room there was also the only sink. This was a bit of a problem as there was always someone wanting to use it.
The staff were very friendly and suggested places we could go.
Overall definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in.
