The hostel has an amazing structure with a very good longe and bar! Everything was very clean. The only problem is the fact that are only three wall sockets in a dormitory for ten people! Wifi just at the reception.

We loved the bar at this hostel as it was always busy and we met lots of people on a similar trip to us; it was a great meeting place. The staff were really efficient and helpful. The hostel was close to an indoor market and a street with basic food shops (and an all important ice cream place!). Overall a friendly atmosphere!

Huge hostel! There was a large school group of teenagers there during my stay. It's not ideal for solo travelers looking for conversation. Slow wifi only available in reception. Better options for accommodation in Berlin!

Rooms were so hot, couldn't have the windows open because of the bar downstairs, they let people drink and talk outside all night! Full of school children, wifi is pretty bad but overall it wasn't bad! Staff were really friendly and helpfull!

Large impersonal "mega hostel". On the positives has very good security and a bar and large area to socialise. Areas for improvement are cleanliness in the bathrooms and the kitchen (which was left disgusting by guests), the kitchen is not open until 10am in the morning, meaning you are forced to purchase their breakfast. The atmosphere would be improved by some evening activities being organised. The location is not great, but is close to a metro. Better options in Berlin than this.

This hostel was good. There were outlets and sinks in each room. I'd bring a padlock if you want to lock up your stuff, otherwise you have to pay 2Euro there. The beds were good and they provided linen which was nice. The breakfast is worth the money. The wi-fi kinda sucked, but that's Europe for you. Also, the directions there are a little confusing. I'd buy a day pass for the U-Bahn. At 6,70E a day, it's not as bad as some other cities, and it's vital. Good hostel. Would come back.

Good hostel for partying even though we were not there for that. Nice kitchen facilities even though it did get crowded. Only wifi in the lobby which was not the best

Only stayed there for one night to stop over but was generally pretty happy with things. Downstairs bar and BBQ was great, wifi was rubbish but the foyer/common spaces downstairs had a really good atmosphere. Room was clean, had really good lockers. Would've been great if I'd been staying for a few more days or with other people.

The hostel was acceptable, the staff were very helpful, but the hostel is in a sketchy part of town with nothing really close by. It is a 30-40 minute walk to the city center.

Very good hostel, 10 mins away from an underground station, the atmosphere was really nice, 5 euros for a reasonable breakfast. The only bad thing is the poor wifi, it only works at the ground floor, and it doesnt really work properly.

The advertising says it has laundry and it doesnt have it

It was about 40 minutes on the subway into Mitte (the main part of town) and it was a bit annoying that the wifi only worked in the common area. But the bar was good and there was a good social vibe.

Great hostel! The kitchen is really big but there are no spice or oil so you have to think to bring some or cook without them. It would be great if the wi-fi was available everywhere and not just in the lobby. But still a great place to stay! I recommend!

Schools/big groups represented a problem for me. The yougsters I met were very very noisy and somebody even rude. Anyway, rooms are OK.

It would be very useful if: - the kitchen would be open 24h, especially IN THE MORNING (not from 10 am) - there would be a possibility to buy only coffe and tea (without buying all breakfast) - there would be a possibility to pay with ceredit cards in the bar - there would be more sockets ( we had only one in a room for 4 people) - there would be at least one night lamp in a room. Thank you, mk

This hostel is HUGE! I was on the 4th floor. No wifi in rooms, which I was aware of prior to booking...but sucks if you have to keep going up to the 4 floor. The amenities were clean and comfortable enough. The staff were friendly, and I appreciated the BBQ.

Have you stayed in hostels before? Do you know what makes a good hostel? Then this is a no-brainer. This hostel is as professional as it gets, clean as a whistle and cheap as dirt. The ratings should be able to go higher than excellent, so I could select that for some categories. Stay here.
