I was visiting Berlin with my brother and our stay at Check-IN hostel was awesome, thought there was no air conditioning but the weather turned out to be super so we did not need any. The staff was super friendly and nice. And you can just walk to various tourists points from this hostel which was really cool. I hope to stay here again on my next visit […] to Berlin as well.

"Hostel close to Checkpoint Charlie"
PROS: -Inexpensive -in Berlin Mitte, also close to Kreuzberg -24 hour reception and friendly staff -Beds were comfortable if squeaky -Nice sitting room with couches, TV, big windows -lockers in the rooms, just have to bring a lock -Private locking showers -Lots of extra services available, like a diner, bike rental, pub crawl CONS: -WiFi was often […] REALLY SLOW, to the point of being unusable. And I am talking using regular websites, forget Skype -Kitchen was pretty dirty, fridge was not very big, no markers to label food, no bowls (I ate my cereal from a mug) -In my room there was not enough plugs, 4 for the whole room of 8 people, since one by the door didn't work (I didn't know this until I woke up to a dead phone). -Some cleanliness issues, they didn't change the garbage in my room until my last day (I stayed 4 nights), showers and sinks had hair and such. Also the tables in the front sitting room where dirty. -Two of the shower head holders were broken, so you have to shower while holding the wand (difficult to wash hair). Also there are large windows in the WC and shower room, I felt like people could look in. -Some kind of nightclub or event centre right next door, which was pretty loud late into the night. Luckily I am a deep sleeper, but I can see this being an issue for people. Overall I think this hostel was fine, I just wanted a cheap, central place. It could use some improvements, and I’d consider staying there again if the Wifi were only better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
立地はよかったです。しかし、二段ベット×２の四人部屋でしたが、下の人が寝返りを打つたびに揺れる…あまりよく寝られませんでした。また、部屋の風の通りが悪くとてもあつかったです。Wi-Fiは部屋からもアクセスでき、その他サービスは良かったので少し残念でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Place to sleep"
We stayed in a 6 ppl room. No hot water in the showers, and what I mean by not hot water is that the water was ice cold. The kitchen was a mess, the staff had to clean the dishes up in the morning even though it is not their job ( if you stay here be nice and clean up!) and to small for be able to handle all the peoples food and foodpreparing. The […] beds was not comfortable...and by not comfortable I mean awful. It is like sleeping on madrassfeathers. And it was hot. Although the staff was nice and I guess you get what you pay for ;) We actually had a wonderful stay in Berlin, the people in our room behavied nice and respectfully and in the common room we met people that we went sightseeing with and later met up again in Budapest. So, great for meeting friends. The average age was low. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rena rum, trevlig personal. Toalett och dushar var jättebra. Använde aldrig kök pga inte rent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
지하철과 버스 모두 이용하기 좋은 곳에 위치. 공용 욕실의 온수가 나오는 데에 시간이 걸림. 주위 환경 때문에 시끄럽거나 담배 연기가 들어올 수 있음.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not bad in general"
The infrastructure is quite new and the staff is niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place to stay in Berlin! And if you like too meet new people, this is the place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
シャワーの排水口が詰まっていて少々清潔さに欠ける部分がありましたが，部屋は綺麗でした。Wi-Fiはロビーで使用する分には特に問題はありませんでしたが，部屋ではかなりスピードが落ちたり繋がらなくなることが多々ありました。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is very close to areas which people should see. You can walk that areas. You can go the hostel with "U6" tram and you need to get out from tram at Kochstr. Station. If you come with bus you need to take just U6.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Vi bodde två nätter på Check in Hostel och trivdes bra. Rena o fräscha rum och badrum/dusch städades ofta och hölls rent! Helt klart prisvärt och personalen i receptionen var trevliga och hjälpsamma!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Hostel really near the center"
We've been in the hostel for 3 days and we've been positivly struck by the nearness to the principal metro and the center of the city. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Definitely I reccomend to spent some time hanging out in the lobby for it was there that I've meet some of the best people in Berlin in my esperience.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was clean and near center. You can go checkpoint Charlie on foot. Everyday the staff checked everything. Kitchen is fully equipped. Bathroom and restrooms are very clean but there is only two toilet. The shower booth also only 4, but there are too many rooms. Generally good, but not recommend. 전체적으로 깔끔하고 좋아요. 그런데 화장실이랑 샤워실이 너무 적어서 성수기에 가면 많이 복잡할것 […] 같네요. 괜찮은 편이지만 강추는 아닙니다. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is good and close to the sightseeing place. The staff is also helpful.But i think the bathroom need to clean more frequently....sometime it is not good after ppl use and the hot water is not very stable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overall okay but a few improvements would go a long way!"
08/27/14 Zoe L Auckland
Overall, is hostel was okay. The location was handy to Checkpoint Charlie, which is also a metro station, and it's only a half hour (depending on how fast you walk) from museum island. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are fine. Toilets and showers generally clean. Common room was fine. Wifi available in rooms but weak so mostly had to go to common room for good internet. I do think some improvements could be made. For instance, when talking to staff behind the desk, they tended to continue talking amongst themselves which is a bit unpleasant when making queries. The showers did not have hot water in the evenings, and it was difficult to adjust the taps etc. Laundry was five euros for a bag, which staff do themselves; my bag was returned to me with damp rather than dry laundry, which was annoying given the cost.
"Good place on a budget"
08/14/14 jessica e Prague, Czech Republic
This place was really nice, clean for the most part, great common room which was very sociable with lots of young people from all over the world to talk to. The kitchen was a bit grotty but for the price, can you complain? The rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff were helpful if not a little slow. I would recommend this place. And the location is very good, near Check Point Charlie, near a Lidl and a metro.
"Correct place if u just wanna save money"
08/10/14 Estela R
We decided to book this hostel regarding its privilegiate situation in berlin's center and its low cost compared with other hostels in the neighbourhood. The hostel in general is correct: nice staff and polite bedrooms. The big problem is about instalations: the kitchen is so small, with just 3 small fridges, in the bathroom there are just 6 showers, and 5 of them have a broken hand shower and the common room is humble and plenty of noisy youths. I hope you can't expect anything better by paying 10€ per day for a shared bedroom in the middle of Berlin.

This hostel is a great place to stay when in Berlin, it's close to Checkpoint Charlie and the U-Bahn, so everything is easily reachable. The Lidl around the corner is also perfect for getting some breakfast in the morning. The biggest downside were the showers on the first floor, all the shower heads were detached and couldn't be fixed on the wall, resulting in an annoying shower procedure. All in all a fine hostel for this price.
"A lovely hostel!"
08/05/14 Autumn E
Me and my friend were backpacking just us two but we met so so many people at this super sociable hostel. There were people from all over the world and the rooms were lovely and clean. Can't drink hard spirits in the common room though so be aware of this!
"Cheap accomodation for young travelers"
07/31/14 Meri L Espoo, Finland
The hostel's location is really good, so you can walk to Unter den Linden and use the U-bahn! The rooms are tidy and the bathrooms and showers are pretty clean too. The common room is a good place to meet other travelers! The kitchen isn't the best though, the stoves didn't work well and the dishes were pretty dirty.
"Cameras everywhere "
07/30/14 Yasemin A
So we chose this hostel because the reviews had mentioned it's great location but in fact it's a 25 minute walk to the most interesting parts of Berlin. We hired bikes to get around quicker which is useful because it can be arranged at the hostel. The hostel was cleaned thoroughly by the staff every morning but unfortunately completely trashed by the evening to the point where the kitchen looked like you could catch something if you cooked there! Not the fault of the staff but the overexcited crowd that this hostel attracts. Another down side was the camera systems throughout the hostel which made a few of us uncomfortable when on several occasions we were told off for opening a window or closing a door because the reception staff couldn't see what was going on. A bit creepy to be constantly watched. Also the common room closes at 12 forcing people onto the streets making a lot of noise. On the up side the bedrooms are spacious with lockers and there's a Lidl round the corner.
"Inexpensive place to stay"
07/26/14 theladylee Santa Rosa, California
The location was excellent, near an U-Bahn stop, and within walking distance of so many sights, parks, places to eat and there is a LIDL grocery store directly behind the building if one wants to self-cater. Dorm bed was comfy and the lockers were large. Bring your own lock. I can't fault the cleaning staff as I was up early every day and witnessed them work hard, but the lack of disrespect from all the young irresponsible guests appalled me. The kitchen was a disgusting mess, the showers full of water on the floor, the lack of soap in the ladies room -- everything others have said I will say as well. A suggestion might be to invest in some shower curtains that actually fit the showers, possibly avoiding all the water on the floor outside the basins. Be aware the place is crawling with gap year students and young people on summer holidays and they are not the quietest nor the most respectful of guests. Outside of the busy times, I'm sure the hostel isn't too bad, though. Kitchen lacked space for prepping meals, only one stove worked when I was there and it wasn't well stocked with everything needed for cooking. Two rather small and always-packed fridges that appeared to not have been cleaned out in ages. Make sure to write your name on your food.

The hostel is quite ok and the recepcionist Laura was kind and helpful. Unfortunaly the aptitude of her boss - a 35/40 year old blond man- was unacceptable, arrogant and talking to me and some other guests like we were nothing..quality-price I would have said Excellent, but a man like him can not manage a hospitality place, doesn't matter if its a hostel or a 5 stars hotel.

we arrived very early in the morning and we couldn't check in but they let us use the showers and bathrooms and store our luggage too until later on. the staff were friendly and the hostel was spotless. we had good wifi and amble amount of shops around us too with a supermarket underneath us. it is a bit from the centre but it is very close to the berlin wall which is a great attraction and which is also next to the high street with local fashion shops and restaurants too. the rooms were safe and there was lockers too. i really enjoyed my experience here and would go again.
