It is almost soul-less. Mostly groups or families stay there, and there's not much opportunity for people to get to know each other. However, the room was nice, and there were plenty of places to sit, even though there was no kitchen.
Change all the sheets and matras it has insects or skin deseas
Good hostel. Didn't have many events it put on itself. Felt like there was an extra charge for everything. €.50 for limes in a beer Linen Locks. Breakfast was ok for the money And was only about a 10-15 min walk to the central streets.
The best example for a Hostel to follow. Everything was clear, good beds, eletronics door locks, pretty well located. The best value for Money I have ever seen.
The hostel stays a little bit far away from the city center, but at least there is a S-Bahn station a few blocks away. The place is well organized, the bar has an expensive menu, but the worst thing is that there's no control of the access to the rooms. A couple tried to pay for just one bed in our room, drank beers there and let the shower very dirty, and the hostel staff did something about it just after hours that we told it in the reception.
They need to tell the old guy that even if he's busy, there are foreigners in the hostel and he needs to be nice and friendlu like all of the younger staff!
Can only recommend this hostel. The staff was very nice, the rooms clean and spacious.
You have to pay for using the kitchen and hiring the sheets. The breakfast is not included, on the advertising they never specific the 6 euro charge. It confuses people. The hostel is located near the Berliner Tor U- and S-station. Its good that there is a luggage room, even if its not very safe, and anyone can go to the repection to ask for the key. Its expensive to eat and drink at the hostel, and there are not many places to eat nearby. The free wi-fi is only working in the lobby
The hostel has a welcoming atmosphere,there is a big lobby with internet facilities and billiard,other game machines. BAR..But what I had noticed , is the noises. when every door opens.or gets closed. And their is a separation door close to the lifts,whenever it closed it makes a sound of a mortar.and definitely it will wake you up during the night!! also the beds are clean, but they should consider cleaning under the bed and wipe the floors.not only changing towels or the emptying the bin.
Great place, the biggest hostel I have ever seen, but still a cozy place, clean and friendly.
The city center is quite far: you have to walk at least ten minutes. Lockers are not provided. The staff at the reception didn't show us the main attractions of the city. The cafeteria is quite expensive. The rooms are ensuite, so enjoy the shower!
This was the worst hostel I've ever been in. The had double booked my bed, so I actually was sleeping in someone else bed (and I can say I had smelled it, he was there for 20days already) so that guy woke me up at around 2:00. We went downstairs to fix this problem, the staff wouldn't admit they had made a mistake, just woke everyone up to see if someone was illegally here.. But no, they just had made a mistake. Fortunately there was a couple, who decided to sleep together so I could have a bed
This truly is a hotel converted to a hostel. Awful location for access to anywhere in the city and nothing around it, but great if you need a place close to the train station. Very clean with a decent breakfast.
It was nice

I discussed because of the sheets... they dont give you sheets and they tell you to pay for them, 3 euros each night... Very very clean. Nice beds. Nice and equiped bathrooms :) Attention: takes "some" minutes check in and check out (lot of bedrooms!)
They only have free wifi at the lobby, they charge you extra for blankets and linen, the rest is ok for the prize
It was an okay hostel. We had to pay to use the computers for internet access, and they were really inconvenient and frustrating (once the time ran out, it would shut down all the windows we had open; it was impossible to get anything done). Some people at reception were nice, others rather unpleasant. I would rather try another hostel if I ever go back to Hamburg.
The hostel is located next to a disco, plus there are 2 big roads at each side of the hostel and there are always people standing outside the hostel doors, talking loudly, and the windows don't really absorb sound, so we couldn't really sleep one night. Location is okay, not so far from the train station, but it's not a very nice neighborhood there. Breakfast was kind of expensive, so we didn't book it; and you have to pay for the bedsheets.
