Best hostel experience ever
I wish every hostel was like this one! Clean, comfortable, safe, right temperature, quiet, updated, enough bathrooms & very friendly staff. It sets an example for other hostels in the world.

soso- if you don't mind a long long walk-
the hostel was kind of far away from where all the action was- it was nice the lobby area was 24/7 but not much to do here so I usually spent most of my time at other hostels or away. I also got kicked off wifi a lot.

Cheap and I would recommend it
I needed a place to stay for my early morning flight and this hostel is near Tegel Airport. I arrived at Berlin Hbf past 7pm and took a bus to U Turmstr. Google map says that from here it would take 6 minutes to walk to the hostel but it took me at least 10 minutes. The streets on the way here are not well lit and not many people around so it's unnerving for a woman like me to walk alone at night. The lounge area next to the reception was bustling with young people. But the hallways and the rooms themselves were quiet which is good. The toilets and shower area were clean. The bed was good enough for a night stay. Would have been better if there are lockers in the room. Upon check-in, you'll be handed with clean bed linen. You have to make your own bed. And you also have to bring the used linen on check-out. I paid 10€ for a taxi from this hostel to Tegel Airport terminal C. By the way, it was my first hostel experience and I was pleasantly surprised to have had a good experience.

Budget comfort stay
Affortable stay. Hostel overall clean and nicely decorated. No problem with shared bathroom always available, probably because Jan is off season. Shared kitchen convenient for breakfast making. Location is easily accessible with public transport especially TXL bus to airport.

Only one complaint
Some guest were inconsiderate at late hours and I didn’t feel like the staff at the desk did well at assuring guests coming back in late were considerate of other guests that were asleep I was woken up at very late hours multiple times. A noise curfew should be enforced.

Great location and hostel!!

Good deal for the cheap price
Amstel House does a great job of making a stay in a hostel as pleasant as it can be. That being said, it's definitely still a hostel. The bunk beds creak and there's no guarantee the people you're sharing a room with will be remotely respectful, though three of my four nights were still reasonably good for sleep. The inner courtyards are bustling with very loud deliveries, and with no air conditioning in the summer that means everyone facing inward is going to need hefty ear plugs to sleep past 8am. The beds were unexpectedly very comfortable, having a sink in the room was a nice touch. The location is fine if you plan to explore during the daytime, but if you're in Berlin to check out the night life it's quite inconvenient to get back to after the trains stop running .

Good connections and good breakfast-
Excellent place, good connections with Ubahn and bus. The staff is really nice and helpful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, but it just needs to be better well kept.
