Kreuzberg is the best part of Berlin, but be aware this hostel is noisy. At least with rooms towards the back yard. Kids shouting and singing in the hallways without the staff doing anything about it.


Not great mattresses but you get what you pay for. Great value for money!


The location is excellent, with an U-bahn stop just around the corner and tons of cafes and bars within a few minutes. Facilities, showers and so on were all very average, nothing spectacular. The biggest complaint I have is the noise, since all the doors were very old and it was practically impossible not to wake up every time someone entered your room during the night. But I would definitely recommend if just for the location (but bring earplugs).


I stayed here for 3 nights in a 8 bed dorm and are somewhat satisfied! The room was nice and beautiful, the beds were alright! Also nice kitchen. Great location close to u-bahn, goerlitzer park and grocery store! Altough not very happy about the bathrooms, absolutely no privacy while showering and a bit dirty but not too bad! Not a very nice place if you're traveling alone since it doesn't have that backpacker atmosphere at all, but great place for couples and groups of friends!

The hostel was great - more of a party atmosphere and everyone was there for a good time. Bathrooms were difficult to navigate with water over the floors but no other real downsides of the hostel. For the price, the place is great and in an ideal location to see Berlin.


Clean, bright and basic rooms for a good price. Excellent location - kreuzberg is really cool, and close to u-bahn station. Bathrooms clean, staff civil and all in all does what it says :)


The bed is extremely dirty. The linen of previous customer was still on the bed when we arrived. The hostel is located in an insecure location. We had a unpleasant stay.


Great location. Everything else is very basic.


Nice place, wish I were staying here more than a night. Staff (one gal in particular, sorry I forgot your name!) is great and helpful. They have a kitchen, it's sort of limited and only open until 10 for some reason, but at least it's something. Location is perfect. Atmosphere is good and solid wifi. Could use better maps though.


really beautiful old building, spacious airy dorms, relaxed atmosphere, basic hostel but excellent value and convenient.


for signing in, it wasn't clear what form of id was necessary whether it be a driver's license or passport


The room was quite nice, if I can reccomend anything: please do sth with the door, they are so noisy and the same with the lockers. The stuff was really nice and helpfull. The place was clean. There were missing bedside lamps, it was guite annoying to have all the time light switched on.


Not very clean.


Nice hostel situated next to Görlitzer Park, *the* place in Berlin where you can get your drugs. Görlitzer Bahnhof (from which you can take the subway) is only five minutes away, but there is plenty of stuff to do and to see in the neighbourhood. Facilities in the hostel (beds, showers) are not super modern, but everything works and especially the showers were always clean. In conclusion: at 11-12 euros per night it's great value for your money.

there's Always sexy (almost)naked young guests around ;) i haven't seen any ugly guest. cool!


The best party on 1st of May! Excellent DJ playing music from Hostel's window! Our room was spacious and clean, but did not look like on the pictures, that was a small disappoinment. Very nice and well-equiped kitchen, comfortable living room. Generally good value for the price!


Really nice location! Wifi was good and some facilities. Not really a good place for making new friends. We could check in before we had, that was nice. If you are partying al weekend or you already have friends there it is a good choice

The hostel is located in a dangerous zone, the building was so old that it was almost falling down, the wooden floor gave the impression that it could break at any moment and the showering facilities were separated from the toilets only by a curtain.


Perfect location in the heart of Kreuzberg, really close to cheap and cool bars, pubs, restaurants and Gorlitzer park, nice place to chill. In 15 minutes walking (or 2 metro stops) you can also reach Friedrichschain where find the best clubs and discos! The hostel is basic, but you have everything you need, nice atmosphere in the common rooms, where you can buy and drink something. The only flaw is that the receptionist girls look often bored, but in general is a great hostel for young people!


The staff were great. Main drawback being the bad and often broken lockers in the rooms. Other than that, you definitely get more than what you pay for (but remember, it is cheap).
