Ostel - Hostel, Berlin

Would be nice enough, if it weren't for the bed bu
This place had an interesting retro decor, that lives up to the DDR theme that they are going for. The room was pleasant enough for a Hostel. The room smelled like it had been smoked in every day for years, despite the no smoking signs everywhere. I was letting that slide until I found out that my room had bed bugs! I had lots of bites. The mattress was infested, and I killed a full grown adult as it was crawling around on me. The room had almost all of the things you can look for when hunting for bed bugs infestation. It was all there. I understand that these things happen, even in the nicest hotels, and would not be leaving a scathing review if the situation had been appropriately handled. But in addition to the infested mattress, the staff seemed unconcerned. Which makes me think this is a regular problem, and that there is no protocol for dealing with it. The woman at the desk did not bat an eye at the dead bed bug I showed her. She offered me another room, in a tone that suggested I was being unreasonable. There was no apology, no offer of refund for the two nights I had already been there, no offer to pay for laundry, no offer of plastic bags to quarantine things. They didn't want to come look at the room to see where the bugs were. Those are all bad signs, and I left for another hotel minutes thereafter. I did get refunded for the nights that I would not be staying there, but had already paid for, so at least there is that.

The trash can is not empty and there's cigarette butt on the ground. btw there's no elevator and we lived on 6th floor. People at the reception are great though.

Very disappointed - tiny room for 2 people, no facilities, no lift to the 5th floor, no wifi. Billed as a GDR themed hotel but there is actually very little of this type of decoration, not enough to make the hotel interesting. It feels like there was a very very poor hotel here and they went for the GDR theme to try to cover it - small cheap improvements would make a big difference, get a stronger WIFI router and put a kettle/tee/coffee in the rooms! For 70 euros a night I expected a lot better.

Great little hostel in an ideal location. A fee minutes walk from the train station and East Side gallery. Night time was very quiet. The only thing that could have been improve was the leaky shower basin. Fantastic value for money otherwise.
