Kitchen would be nice and sound insulations would be nice also, because very noisy plums next to my bed, but however the hostel was ok clean.

the big advantage is the value for the price, which happens rarely, especially in cities such as Berlin. Staff was very helpful and polite, very well prepared for any kind of questions and problems. However, the internet is not included which is a big dissapointment.

Nicer/ more helpful staff would be appreciated. Mostly the cramped rooms were the problem; the storage lockers were 'Z' shaped, I had to unpack everything just to lock it away. also its a bring your own toilet paper place, ugh. I asked reception why their wasn't any tp they said. ' bring your own' 2€ for an hour of slow Wi-Fi (that's only accessible in the main lobby) is not worth it. also they say it's an alcohol free area; then how are people openly drinking, like they were.-1/10 bad

Well, the hostel is far from 'all in' as its name suggests, you had to pay for sheets and additional stuff. But for the three days that we stayed there we hadn't had any problems. Some drawbacks was the fact that there were three layered bunks. And the fact that there were no partition walls in the shower, only some had a curtain. Some girls took a shower with their bikini on, which made the whole situation only more awkward. Location was great though!

This hostel was not great. When we showed up, the police were there because of noise complaints from neighbors. There were people all in the hallways drinking and shouting. However, the 8 person dorm that we booked was very spacious, but the beds were dirty. We had to book this hostel at the last minute and normally I would not stay in this part of Berlin since it is known for the party scene. If you are looking for a quiet hostel, this isn't it. The staff were VERY nice and helpful though!

Come on, can you have a worse experience than showing up and the first thing you are asked to do is to pay an additional fee for bed-linen.?. I have travelled a lot for the last 8 years and never experienced it before.. Big failure..

We booked three beds in a room with six beds. When we arrived, we had to notice that we had to stay in a room with ten beds and only a small window. When telling the receptionist , he simply replied that the only thing that matters is whether the room has a private bathroom or not. It IS a big difference whether we share one small bathroom with seven or only with six other people. The next day we were moved to a seven bed dorm. We did not get any money back. There was mould in the shower.

The hostel was very pleasant to stay at, and in a good location. I was only slightly put off by the fact that they did not offer free wifi.

This hostel is in a great location for young travelers as there is plenty of great night life in the area and countless delicious cheap food options (tons of vegan options too!). It is also about a 10 minute walk from both S and U line trains. The biggest downsides I found were no kitchen, wifi that wasn't free, and no alcohol in the rooms. I feel like I got my money's worth.

It was just ok, the problem were extra charges for bed sheets, locks, WiFi and such. The staff seems confused as if they were working there for the first day. One guy was very rude and unprofessional to all the guest... I don't remember his name. I tried to book this hostel one more time via their website since it was much cheaper and they completely mess it up! One person confirmed my booking and 2 weeks later a different person reply that my booking is about to be canceled... unprofessional.

I booked a 6 beds dorm and when i checked in it became a 8 beds dorm. The staff asked me 'Do you think this is a big problem?'. What worse is that you have to pay for linen, wifi.

Great hostel in Friedrichshain district next to great clubs, bars restaurants. Biiig hostel. Can seem a bit messy but it is good value for money. Staff were great, good for local info. Have to get a padlock for the locker in the room from the desk for 5 Euros if you don't have one - you get 4 Euros back when you hand it back on check out.

If you're looking for somewhere to just sleep, this place is ok. Think of it as the Ryanair of hostels-- it technically gets the job done, but absolutely nothing beyond that. It's so huge that no one talks to anyone, you will not meet people here. Also, they don't provide towels, you have to pay for sheets, and they charge you to use the (slow) internet. The surrounding area is interesting if you want to wander in a sketchy area at night (interesting) but nowhere near anything in the middle.

A bit hard to find. Cheap beds. but, you want internet? you pay. you need sheets? you pay almost as much as for the bed. you want breakfast? you pay. Spend that extra money on another place with these things included. Very big place, no interaction between back packers. Very clean and good security.

Nice and big clean rooms! Liked the location being so close to warhauser station- didn't like having to pay for wifi that worked minimally and only in the common room.
