"Don't ask them to do your laundry!"
If all you need is a bed then this is a good option for you. Don't ask them to do your laundry because they'll give it back to you damp, smelly, and stuffed in a plastic bag. The refrigerator for the entire floor of at least 64 people was extremely dirty, needed to be defrosted, and was too full for even a couple of our things.Genuine Expedia guest review
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
"Nice hostel and friendly staff"
The hotel location is good, which is close to the metro station and one of the famous tourist spots in Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie. The staff are young and friendly, providing immediate support to the travellers.I would stay at this hostel when I visit Berlin again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"모든 것이 보통인 호스텔"
6인실 사용했어요. 밤에 밖의 클럽이 시끄랍지만 창문을 닫으면(닫힌다면) 참을만 합니다. 모든 것이 보통입니다. 추천을 하진 않지만 나쁘지 않습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
이곳에서 6일지냈는데 숙소바로앞에 센트럴로가는 트램이지나가고 조금걸어가면(5분정도) 뮤지엄으로가는트램도오고 10분-15분정도걸어가면 기차역도있어서 위치가아주편리합니다. 숙소바로뒷쪽에 아울렛타운같이 옷가게,마트,식당 등이모여있어서 아주편리합니다. 숙소의 흠이라면 따로마련된주방이없는것과 한층에 하나뿐인 샤워실과화장실(저는 별무리없이사용하였습니다만 사람이몰리면불편할사항)인듯싶습니다. 계단이가파른것은 네덜란드의 특성인것같으니 정신똑바로차리고내려오면 별문제없습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I förhållande till priset var den totala upplevelsen av hotelet mycket bra. Trevlig personal, många unga och utåtriktade människor som bidrog till en väldigt trevlig stämning. Dusch, kök, sällskapsrum i bra skick. Nära till U-bahn. Även görligt att ta sig in till stan och många sevärdheter till fots. Uthyrning av cyklar till förmånliga priser.Genuine 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

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

"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

"Check in hostel"
12/02/14 Carla M
The staff is very friendly and the position of the hostel is excellent as you can reach most of Berlin's interesting places from there. The cleanness, especially that of the bed sheets, is not up to the standards. Anyway very good place to stay.
12/01/14 John E London, United Kingdom
This hostel is really disgusting. The personnel is rude and cannot remember the guests, the rooms or the conversations. David, the receptionist is a racist and don't accept guests from some countries. They say to some people that there are no rooms when the hostel is half empty. This was really dissapointing.
"Very good deal for its price"
11/26/14 Sergei A Saint-Petersburg
Stayed here in november. Convenient location - U-bahn station in 5 min by foot. Lidl supermarket is located in same building. Rather clean showers and toilets. But annoying shower curtains passed through water. And absence of shelf for soap in shower cabin was my disappointment. Kitchen equipment is old, there're no deep plates (for soup, for example). Bed linen was clean and comfortable. Very friendly stuff. In conclusion i can say, that it's not for one who's finding high level comfort. But if you want cozy place to sleep in Berlin not far from center and for the right price - it's your choice!
"cleaners remove items without asking, hostile manager, poor facilities. Got police involved"
11/11/14 bellemonde Sydney, Australia
Similar to the other reviewers expressed, their staff have this condescending attitude toward guests' concerns, and they have been known to enter rooms without knocking. The rude blonde mid 40s man other reviewers have mentioned is Michal Petrovic, the ‘front office manager’. This hostel has a lot of group booking business, which may be the reason the management don’t bother about customer service and retain individual customers. CCTV cameras are everywhere which makes people feel uneasy, you wonder is it at all necessary to monitor guests this way? Facilities: huge windows in kitchen and shower and toilet left wide open in the cold (!), how do you expect guest to use them in the freezing cold??? only 3 men's shower stalls for an entire level. shower floor has no drainage and always has an inch of water puddled on it so every time you finish showering you walk thru a puddle of dirty water again. Shower water becomes cold if too many people use it (hot water is provided from 2x 400 liter tanks upstairs and is insufficient for the number of beds is in the hostel) kitchen is in a state of shambles, there are 2 tripping hazard steps on the floor, fry pans are all warped and unusable, often dishes are left on sink or even worse half cleaned. Fridge has graffiti on it (!) and they don't seem to care cleaning or replacing fridge. Freezer full of ice the door can't close. rooms had odor from damp carpet or previous spillages. and most chairs everywhere are very dirty, either black and/or liquid marks - it doesn't take much effort to clean them yet they are not cleaned. really seems the management don't care about maintaining the place as long as Berlin attracts a lot of visitors and the hostel can get away with treating guests not like guests. mattress are often collapsed and bed frames creak badly, affecting your sleep Alcohol is allowed and is sold on the premise and there are sometimes drunken guests. Wifi is useless, connection most times, when connected actual speed is about 20kbps, you need to bring your 3G internet. cleaners have been known to throw people's things out without asking, on multiple occasions, yet the management don't seem to bother rectifying this issue. I had asked for a refund for my lost towel, but conversation with the aggressive manager escalated to a trip to the local police station. location is acceptable, close to Checkpoint charlie and Lidl next door, but to the south of most of Berlin center attractions. overall a terrible experience, not to what hostel booking sites’ rating might make you think. despite the appealing price, it may not be worth your trouble to stay there.
"very good for backpackers :)"
11/04/14 Thomas k Norwich, United Kingdom
I stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't fault it for location so close to metro stations and attractions could of been cleaned more but what do you expect for 7 euros a night if you are travelling alone id say this place is perfect for you
"I Love the environment there"
10/13/14 star454 Bremen, Germany
Altogether hostel is okay except slow wi-fi and no hot water for shower during day time. Hostel is full of back packers from all over the world and I love it and the best thing about the hostel is it's location.
"It was nice"
10/12/14 TheAmela Tuzla Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina
We've spent there 1 night.Stuff was very nice,rooms were ok.Bathroom was bit dirty,also kitchen,but that's because people don't clean after themselves.Very nice location,close to center.Wifi available all time
"The worst hostel I have ever stayed in"
I stayed there for three nights. For two of those days there was no wifi and no apologies about this. Myself and my boyfriend were told we had to move rooms mid stay. We had no help with this or apologies. It was expected we vacate the first room by eleven and check out and then check into the new room (which we weren't allowed into until 3pm) I brought this up with one of the reception staff. She was very unhelpful and said that we had to check with the cleanings staff if it was ready- which angered me more. Disrupted our stay and time to see the city completely. Had laundry done but did not receive it back for a full day. When we received it it was completely soaking wet. No apologies again. I advise nobody to stay there!

This is a cheap hostel. However, the cleanliness of the rooms and the beds are excellent as well as the cleanliness of the bathroom. The hostel is quite close to the metro station and Charlie's check point. Overall, a nice and comfortable hostel.
"A great low-budget place to stay"
09/11/14 katiethegnome Prague, Czech Republic
A super cheap hostel (if you're lucky you can get a bed in shared dorms for 6 EUR) close to Checkpoint Charlie, clean, spacious, accessible, free wifi.. Overall good experience. There is a shop and a basic restaurant downstairs where you can get breakfast for a good price. I'm not hard to please, but I really think it's a good choice if you just want to place to stay and maybe hang out with friends in the evening (there is a basic common room). And also meet new friends (the hostel is usually full of young people).
