It's all very basic. You really get what you pay for (+3.5 euro for sheets). I've stayed here before, because of the location mostly, and didn't find it to great, but it was cheap enough. This time there erupted a fight 5 o'clock in the morning, with 4 aggresive Italians in the room. Eventually the staff got involved, and things got calmed down, but it all took 30-45 minutes. Regardless that it is a hostel it is a point of attention to emphasize behavior rules if that is the case.


Had 3 homeless wierdos in the room, the room stank of unwashed people. Disguisting


This property is disgusting. The staff here is the least helpful in the hospitality industry I've ever come across in my entire life. The bathrooms are probably the main place in the hostel that the cleaning staff just completely ignores and the photos on the website look nothing like the rooms. The floors are so loud when walking you could wake the entire level. And there's only one outlet per room. Saying it stinks (odor) is an understatement. And the kitchen is bad. Do not go

quietest hostel i slept in, clean, cheap, great location. great value for money!


Lack of outlets in the room, causes issues when everyone has a smart phone to charge. Disregard of the rules by some of the fellow travelers. They would run up and down halls, bang on room doors at 3 in the morning, etc.


Everything was Ok. The receptonists were kind of not helpful.


Large hostel. Really close to Ostkreuz S-bahn in Friedrichshain.


Average Variables..first of all the price politic is not transparent..

The service was so bad. We had been promised a 8 bed dorm as a group, but when we arrived we were split out on 4 different dorms. There was a sheet with blood in the corner of our room, and the staff was so unfriendly and uncoordinated that we had to discus our room situation with different staff members every day, even thought we had the emails that confirmed that we could stay together. I would not recommend this place to anyone, nor will I ever stay there again, or at any other A&O Hostel.

The showers had 4 in the room and had no privacy. They had no curtain and the door to the showers could not be locked. The room and showers were rarely cleaned and one guy checked into the room without the sheets being changed. Staff are useless except one lady with short blond hair and there is no atmosphere at all. Also the lock to the room was broken and they did nothing about fixing it. Location is only good thing about the place. Avoid it at all costs


Amazing place although toilets were out of order and staff were a bit unaccommodating!

The hostel is big and is located at a good location. There are plenty of restaurants and even an Internet cafe. However, you have to pay extra for everything like sheets, towels, etc. the worst part is that there are no shower curtains. This is the first time I see this in a hostel. The mattresses are old. Overall, it's an ok place to stay.
