Fabulous 8.6 From 100 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great location, clean, kind staff
This was a very nice stay in a very hip part of Berlin, Prenzlauerberg. The accommodations were clean, the staff was friendly and they have a luggage room for early arrivals / late check-outs. The area is what makes this place the best. There are many bars, a blues club, and a Weekend Flea Market nearby. Also convenient is a nearby supermarket and 24h convenience store. The accommodations are nothing fancy, but if you are looking for a cheap, clean place in a great location, this will do the trick! Also, despite being near some quality nightlife, the place itself was rather quiet. Good access to the U-Bahn and tram networks, also.

Poor 2.0
Sorry, this was not at all acceptable. The room was smelly (very unpleasant). It was also hard to sleep due to floors that squeaked no end, sending a ringing noise from anywhere in the building at any given hour. Exhausting! Upsides, Old Town Hostel has nice common areas, if you travel as a group, and is close Kastanienallee (great cafes and the like) and U-Bahnhof Ebersalderstr (tube station). Its location is very good. Still, I have stayed at many small hotels in Berlin, in the same price range I should add, that have been clean and quiet inside. I will not come back to Old Town Hostel.

Great location, close to tram and trains [S and U]
Staff very helpful and the hostel is bright and clean with modern decor and plenty of shared showers etc. Nice kitchen and communal rooms; only down side is they are closed when Reception is, ie btw and 8 am, so you cannot get late night or early morning access to kitchen area. There are plenty of bars and cafes and all night shops nearby, but that does reduce the 'hostel' experience to simply a place to sleep. My single room was spacious with a comfortable bed and basic furniture. Very good quality for the price and I enjoyed my stay.

Old town house
Stayed there this weekend as I was visiting my son who is traveling around Europe. My first ever hostel as I wanted to stay where my son was. Was very apprehensive to be honest, but the location, cleanliness and qaulity were very good and I would use this again. Also felt a very safe establishment. Some great bars and restaurants within 30 metres. Great transport links to the whole of Berlin straight outside.

Very Good 8.0
nice one
A nice budget hostel with friendly helpful staff. Very large kitchen with dining room and shared lounge available downstairs. Lots of shared bathrooms so you can easily use them. Nice city area with lots of pubs and shops, metro just next to it. The only minus is the fact that you can hear everything from the corridor and the adjoining room, the creaking floors. A comfortable bed, when you have earplugs you can sleep.
