Fabulous 8.6 From 91 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Family friendly and great location
This was a really pleasant hostel. I stayed here with my children and we all liked it. The kitchen access is clean and well functioning. Pretty too. There is a great little lounge area and free coffee and tea all day. The shared bathrooms were so clean and neat, we never even noticed that we were sharing. The rooms were clean and had all that we needed. The beds are a little narrow, but clean and comfortable. The halls are old so the floors are squeaky. If you are sensitive to sounds at night, you should ask to be in a room facing the inner courtyard (away from street) and up a few floors. The doors are locked a night for safety and the neighborhood is great. Short walk to transportation and 1 minute walk to grocery store. Tons of great food options in the neighborhood. We loved the staff, all of whom were so helpful and friendly. We will be back again! One word of advice - if you arrive after the lobby closes, you cannot get into a room. Check lobby hours and make arrangements. I ran into a few customers outside the hostel who arrived late in the evening and were unable to get their room.

Outstanding! Felt like home
I stayed a week solo in this hostel. The hostel is quiet, CLEAN, and comfortable; the shared bathroom is always clean (Even sometimes I wondered if I'm the only one who enters =D). Also the hostel is considered very cheap for it's location. The location is perfect, U bahn is 5 mins walk, the tram pass right in front of the hostel and the bus pass 2 blocks away from it. Two parks are close to the hostel (one local and the other one is MauerPark). The street also is VERY safe to walk at night (I walked once at 4 am and it was very safe), there's many bars and shops that open till late.The hostel also has many facilities, perfect WiFi connection, a reading room, a lounge area, and a fully equipped kitchen. There's a courtyard where you can smoke or park your bike. The staff was very helpful and friendly, they provide free coffee and tea in the morning; there's also some free fruits and cooking materials available (written on it for everyone) Overall this hostel is impressive.

Good location
Not bad in general but rooms are quite simple, just beds and a table with chairs. Maybe to have a big mirror could be good and something decorative or nice furniture. Location is good and staff good as well.
