"Clean hostel in good location"
We stayed in a private room with ensure shower room. The room was large, clean and quiet but could have been warmer. The bathroom was clean and the shower powerful. Location was great for sightseeing although not so good for bars in the evening. Overall good value for the money.

"Sleep not guaranteed"
Great central location. Staff really friendly and helpful. Down side was that some other residents came home very late and noisy. Then again I am old and they have every right to enjoy life to the full. I would definitely stay again next time I visit Berlin.

Great and helpful staff, good atmosphere - the music in the bar could have been a bit better, but not an issue. Great price, has free coffee and tea at all hours, breakfast was cheap and pretty good. Got to meet a bunch of different people, had a fairly spacious room with a big window the facilities were always clean - overall happy with my choice to stay at heart of gold

"交通の便は◎"
地下鉄の駅からすごく近いので交通の便はすごく良いです。部屋も6人部屋に泊まりましたがシンプルで普通に過ごす分には特に問題ありません。ただ、ホテル自体が大きく宿泊者の人数が多いようで夜中まで音楽や話し声が聞こえるので、ゆっくり過ごしたいかたには向いてないと思います。

"Okej"
Stannade 4 nätter. Rummet var okej sov i ett med fyra sängar. Det negativ jag upplevde var att det inte fanns uttag i närheten av alla sängar och det var mycket spring och skrik i korridoren utanför rummet. Det var även stopp i duschen majoriteten av de gånger jag skulle duscha. Men ett helt ok hostel som låg bra.

"good but antisocial"
The hostel is nice, centrally located and very hip. The only downfall was the other guests. They were very young and wanted little interaction. Sad the sweet common areas weren't as fun due to that.

"Lage Top, Hotel nett, eher jugendlich."
Zimmer sind nett und groß, nicht unbedingt super-sauber. Die Flure und Zimmer sind relativ hellhörig. Man hört Schritte und die Duschen aus den Nachbarzimmern. Am Wochenende ist natürlich bis lang in die Nacht etwas los....

"Close to the city center :)"

I like this hotel because of its location :) Inside it was normal hostel.. rooms are very simple but nice and new. Little disadvantage is that you dont have any kitchen and you have to pay for the lockers..

"Nice mood at the bar, awesome rooms and showers"
01/30/16 Alessandra M
The hostel's bar has an awesome alternative mood, the kind of place I like to go to whenever I go out with my friends. It also promotes people to talk to each other and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Loved the rooms with big lockers and the shower is really good (temperature/pressure are nice and you don't have the economic yet annoying push for water system -yay!). It also has a good breakfast for 4 euros and is close to several eating/drinking spots (to the right for everything, to the left for pizza). It is very near public transportation (including the bus that comes from the airport tegel) so location is great :D 10/10 will stay there again when in Berlin.

Great location, quiet area, clean rooms and very good price for money. No towels in room which I did not anticipate so had to purchase and there was no heating in the room. Would however stay there again as for the price you can't beat it.

"Perfect position, but too much noise"
01/25/16 Riccardoholiday Venice, Italy
Slept for 3 nights in the first floor, you hear lot of noise coming from other people's rooms. Very difficult to sleep at last. The bed was not very comfortable. Staff nice and always helpful. I would not return

"Good hostel and friendly staff"
01/15/16 Chelsey C Georgetown, Canada
Had a great stay, and the staff were great and able to help me out with directions and answering other questions that I had. The courtyard remained noisy for most of the night, and because it was hot I had to leave the window open so it would have been nice if the noise levels had been monitored however it was still a pleasant stay.

Nice location, quiet area, therefore we had a quiet rest. Rooms are nice and beds clean. On the corridor (besides shared shower rooms) there are bathrooms with an individual shower inside, which can be locked from the inside for full privacy. Very nice and helpful staff.

01/09/16 m03m Budapest, Hungary
If you search for a hostel to have some rest during sightseeing, I can recommend this hostel. Pretty close to the main railway station. The dorms are okay, nothing special, but quite clean. They offer tea and coffee during all day, which is nice (especially in the winter). The staff is really helpful and nice, special thanks for the Hungarian girl for the nice recommendations :)

"clean hostel, worth the price"
01/08/16 arizka2 Jakarta, Indonesia
i came from Berlin Hbf at midnight. since i am not familiar with german transport, i went to the hostel by walking. and definitely it's not a good idea. the hostel is quite far from the central station, but it's close from the S bahn station. the building was not so easy to find, but it's still close. the hostel lobby was very crowded at night, and there's only 1 receptionist, so i need to wait around 30 mnts for the check in. the door to get to the stairs was broken, so that was annoying that i had to try several times to open the door. wifi is free and the signal was strong. the room is clean. they gave me a new bedsheet and pillowcase. but we should pay a deposit for those case. good thing they have a safe locker to put your things. i ordered the first night through hostel world, but the following night is directly from the hostel website, and that was cheaper than the hostelworld website for the exact same room. I think overall it was worth the price.

"Good & bad"
01/06/16 Meki I
Overall service was nice. Rooms itself were clean and easy to sleep in. Breakfast - even though 4€ only had coffee, bread, ham, yogurt and mysli with no juice or eggs. Wifi only works in bar/lounge. Kitchen is nifty and remote. My room had malfunctioning toilet which didnt get fixed during stay. Bar had sometimes cash-only policy and nearest atm is quite a trek away.

01/05/16 Amie C London, United Kingdom
Cheap drinks, good atmosphere most of the bar / reception staff were friendly. A friend & I had a private room so can't really rate the actual dormitories but from people I met they said they was fine for moneys worth. Close to two train stations and the city, if I came back to Berlin I would stay here without a doubt !
