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
Excellent hostel- clean, friendly and helpful staff, easy access to the most important historic sites. Highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hostel close to everything"
Would definitely come back. Great staff and relaxed vibe!Genuine Expedia 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"

The hostel is at 50 m from the Underground (Mockenbrucke) and 15 minutes far from the most famous monuments of the City. The whole building is really well furnished and good looking (even better than many hotels). Rooms are very clean and every bed has a good living space (no bunk beds). In the 8 beds room where we were, there was a roomy private toilet + shower (very clean). I'd say that the best asset of this hostel is the staff and the atmosphere! Staff is available 24/7 and is always kind and friendly (and ready to have a cold german beer with you at the small pub in the hall). During our stay the other guests were also very friendly and it was easy to find new friends and people to go out with. Highly Recommended!!
"Great time "

Lovely hostel. Good lockers. Close to the u bahn. Pleasant staff that would answer questions. 24 hour reception. Big rooms. No bunks. Great reading lights. Only down fall is not having a kitchen. Or even just a jug would have been nice. And the wifi isn't too great in the rooms.
"One of the better hostels"
Hostel was a really nice environment, staff were friendly, 24 hour reception. Room were kept tidy and well maintained, good storage space for luggage in rooms. Only downfall wifi is not the best in the rooms. But good chill out area and bar down stairs.
"Best hostel in Germany!"
I've stayed in this hostel twice and I would recommend it to anyone. For the price you pay they really don't need to be of such a high standard, I would pay double, if not more! The beds are the most comfortable I have ever come across at a hostel and are hotel standard, they don't even do bunk beds. We stayed in a five bed room and it was like staying at a posh boarding school. The showers are also fantastic and very clean. For only 6.20 you can get an all you can eat breakfast and it's available until 11am, it was delicious and really set us up for the day. The staff were so helpful, especially jerome at the front desk. It's in walking distance of checkpoint Charlie and most major attractions. Two blocks from the best kebab in Germany and it's definitely the best kebab I've ever had!! Loads of great restaurants and bars near by, great value too. I'd recommend Phucket for a delicious, inexpensive meal and line 1 for a great night if you like dive bars, cheap drink and lots of fun! I would definitely come back here again and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of going to Berlin. Until next time
"Excellent place to stay..."

My boyfriend and I arrived here late on a sunday evening, it was pouring with rain and we wasn't sure where we were going, but luckily the hostel was only a few seconds walk from the train station (Mockernbrucker - come out, turn right) The staff offered us a very warm welcome, showed us to some seats where we were handed a much needed complimentary beer and given our room code whilst we dried off in the cosy bar. The bar area itself was busy, but relaxed, everyone was chatting away and the atmosphere was just perfect. For the first two nights we stayed in a 5 bed mixed dorm, the rooms where large and clean and the beds were very comforatble. There are lockable wardrobes so be sure to bring a padlock. You can pre book a breakfast here before midnight at a discounted price which we did on the first night, ready for the morning. It is a very simple buffet with a good variety of foods and ok coffee. We did only use this service once as there are many other local places to eat which are very cheap. For the remainder of our stay we stayed in a private double room, again the room was large and very clean. The only downside I would say is that there are no double beds, if you are a couple you have to push them together- and they do slide apart a little which can be annoying. The showers are communal unless you have a private bathroom but are seperated for male and female. The doors are frosed glass but I felt that they do offer enough privacy, they are clean and warm what more can you ask for? The female shower rooms also have hairdryers which are handy! For me what really made this Hostel amazing was the staff- They are so friendly and helpful on every occaision, they answered all of our many questions and were always ready to reccomend places to visit eat and drink! 10/10 would 100% reccomend!
The best hostel that I've been in Europe! The location is really good, in a charming cool neighborhood and near to a metro station. And 2 blocks close to the best kebabi of Berlin! Loved it! The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The service was awesome too! I really liked the activities that it offers for those who don't have plans at night.
"Best Hostel Ever"

I spent 3 days in Grand Hostel Belin when I stayed in the city. Best hostel ever. Staff are nice and helpful. Location is perfect. It is easy to walk from the hostel to the majot attractions in Berlin. The environment is easy to know other people. You definitely will love Berlin more when you stay in the hostel.

specially I loved this hostel because of the Staff, they've been really great, kind, and helpful since the first time, the hostel is really clean, the location it's also good, right next to a metro station, also the atmosphere inside... Arriving to berlin, because of some issues I was not feeling it good until I arrived! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars it's because the breakfast it's not included ;)

Great stay at this hostel. Rooms were nice and cozy with in-room locker. Wifi access was pretty weak though. You have to pay for breakfast (6.2 EUR) and also for fresh clean sheets (3 EUR), which was a surprise to me. But the breakfast is pretty amazing - you get almost everything you could want for a continental breakfast. Please note: the location of the hostel is a 30 min walk from the city centre. There is a street also 30 mins east of this location which has many good places to eat. However, in an around the hostel you are kind of deserted.
"The name says it all"

Big hostel in a fantastic building and great location. A U-bahn station is very near, and you can get both to the airport and downtown easily. Interesing sights within walking-distance also. Extremely helpful staff, immaculately clean room. There were some very noisy schoolboys staying in the same floor as us, but hey, that's what hostel life is. Clean (and completely empty of other people!) showers. The breakfast cafe next door is absolutely lovely and can be greatly recommended.
