Best hostel I have ever stayed in, hands down. Great space, great employees, wonderful beds and a very fun lounge with a very great atmosphere. I will come back to this place the next time in Berlin.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I expected more from this hostel because of all the awards they've been given, but it was just ok. It's definitely geared toward younger travelers. You can hear *everything* as it's a very old building. The bar has a good happy hour and it's extremely close to a U-Bahn stop. Wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hostel for a Short Stay in Berlin"
A simple hostel at a great rate, but set apart by warm and helpful reception (including a free welcome drink on check-in!), cleanliness, ample space in the rooms, social gatherings and events in the lobby/bar area, and quiet hours respected on the bedroom floors. Only negative: the bed was pretty lumpy and uncomfortable (may just have been mine tho […] ugh). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Would definitely come back. Great staff and relaxed vibe!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean hostel, confusing booking price"
There was not clarity about the last price to pay for the stay while doing the booking. At the hostel we were charged more than expected.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotellet anger att det finns gratis parkeringsplats i närheten, men väl där hänvisas man till en bakgata som är proppfull med bilar. Fantastisk service man kände sig mycket välkommen direkt. Toalett och dusch i korridor var aldrig några som helst problem, rent o fräscht. Suveränt att man kunde köpa till frukost. Rekommenderas varmtGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tolles Hostel in einer Gründerzeit-Villa"
Ich war zwar nur eine Nacht im Hostel, aber die kurze Zeit habe ich sehr genossen. Das Bett wahr sehr angenehm, das Zimmer war vollkommen in Ordnung. Die Lage ist zentral und bequem zu erreichen. Das Personal war aufmerksam und sehr nett! Ich würde zu jeder Zeit wieder einen Aufenthalt dort buchen. Das Frühstücks-Buffet im Grand Ma's ist genauso zu […] empfehlen. Reichhaltiges Buffet zu einem sehr günstigem Preis. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Det har været perfekt for os. Vi kan kun anbefale dette Hostel. Søde mennesker. Rigtig god information om hvad man kan i byen og hvordan man kommer rundt i byen. Godt værelse og alt var dejlig rent. Vi har været mere end tilfredse :))Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nettes Hostel, aber doch nur ein Hostel"
Doppelbett-Zimmer mit eigenem Bad befand sich am Ende des Flures, direkt neben den Toiletten und Duschen für die Merhbettzimmer, sodass es sehr laut war. Außerdem fallen die Türen sehr laut zu. An sich war alles ok, aber für das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis wird es beim nächsten Mal doch ein richtiges Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gode, behagelige senge"
Jeg SYNES godt om mit ophold. Det SYNTES jeg også, da jeg var af sted...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I was very impressed by this hostel. It has plenty of space, the rooms are huge and the people are great. When signing in I was offered a complimentary drink (beer), and was immediately comfortable asking for travel and food tips. Every night they have an event in the main lobby/bar, like drink tasting or German language lessons. Had a good time with the staff, especially Martin when he was behind the bar. There was a locker for each bed in the room, big enough for all of my luggage. I thought Berlin was going to be expensive, but it was actually pleasantly affordable with this hostel being no exception. The only issue is the shared washroom/shower facility, as I prefer having them directly in the room. When you're here, go get a Kebab from Mustafa's around the corner.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in early February and we were impressed from the moment we walked through the door. We had just endured a 10-hour bus ride from Krakow and were welcomed with a cup of tea, some biscuits and given a map of places of interests nearby. Our room was spotless and could almost pass for a hotel, especially since there was not a bunk bed in sight. Instead, comfy single beds with warm duvets and clean sheets - pure luxury for budget travellers! The hostel is also located five minutes from Möckernbrücke station, which means getting to the airport and to Berlin's famous landmarks is super easy! The free wifi worked a treat and the shared bathrooms were always clean. Overall, for the price you pay, I could not recommend this hostel enough, and would definitely stay here again if (most likely when) I go back to Berlin!

The Hostel has a very good connection to the public transport and with that to the airport and the city center. The stuff is extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are the bomb. It's like staying in a hotel. I have visited twice and I am always amazed.
Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were extremely hospitable and funny. They gave great recommendations on nightclubs and kebab places. The location is good too. It's right beside an U-bahn stop to bring you right into the centre of the city within minutes. Would recommend the breakfast as great value for money. They offer cereals, yogurts, a fry up, waffles... Ideal if you want to avoid spending on eating out. All in all a great hostel with a great buzz.
"First day in Berlin..."
The hostel was far from the air port, but then again everything is so spread out around Berlin it didn't matter too much. The check in was so tougher, we were given a map and a free drink upon arrival, the receptionist (forgot to get his name) told us everything, and i like that he gave his own opinion instead of a standard response. free wifi available, slow to connect with at start but then worked fine. food places were near by. I think they are child friendly as a kid was around the hostel when we were leaving. Not a party hostel if that is what you are looking for. Really had a good nights sleep, thank you so much.
"Perfect for a short stay"

We stayed for a single Saturday night in February, we were made to feel very welcome upon entry and given a map of local places of interest and landmarks. The room was spotlessly clean, and although we had a shared bathroom, it was only a door away. Free wifi was a nice touch. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Berlin
"Perfect Hostel for Budget Trips"
02/16/15 PRATIKl Mumbai (Bombay), India
Grand Hostel is located at just a two minute walk from Mockenburke U Bahn. Apart from a good location, it is a very clean hostel and could almost pass for a Hotel. As other reviews say, they have the most amazing and friendly staff. Martin, Dario and the rest ensure you have a wonderful time at the hostel. They do have some really interesting activities at the hostel every evening. So if its a really cold evening outside, you could take some German lessons from Martin on a Wednesday or head out with others staying at the hostel for a pub crawl on Friday. Their common room on the ground floor has a huge collection of books, though most are in Dutch(You need to keep a good amount of English books for non Dutch Travellers) a well stocked and cheap bar, and a very comfortable sitting area. It is a great place to meet new and interesting people of all ages and from various walks of life. Sleep quality is very good. The mattresses are the ones that you would normally find in a hotel and not a hostel. Though not very close to the airport, you can get to the hostel via public transport very easily.
Had stayed here with two friends last summer as part of a travel around Europe and had never got round to leaving a review! All of us had a fantastic stay and for the money we paid, were pleasantly surprised by the quality and location. Two seconds from the U-bahn and bike rental is available. The front desk were really helpful and gave us local advice on what was best to see in the city. Definitely the best hostel we stayed in on our journey - needless to say the cleanliest!
"Excellent place to stay!"

Loved this hostel! It was clean, safe, and quiet, well-located, and had a great community feel (excellent common space, activities, etc.). Felt very safe as a solo female traveler and had no trouble whatsoever. Nothing negative to say--highly recommended!
"Great atmosphere greattime"

So clean, so comfortable its the closest thing you'll get hostelwise that comes close to a 5 star hotel. The staff were friendly and while remaining professional they were happy to sit down with us while we had a drink at their comfortable hostel bar. I will recommend my friends in the future
