Amstel house is slightly out of the main centre so you have to get public transport in, but this is really easy to do and also the surrounding area has lots of food places to eat as well. The staff are really helpful and very accommodating to your needs. Only bad thing is the limit on wifi which was only available in the lobby for 2 hours a day which can get very annoying but overall a really nice hostel

Really cool hostel, has a big common area so really easy to meet people. Only downside is location a little far out of town but not too much of a problem.

Awesome stay here at Amstel House. Staff was very accommodating with anything and were full of helpful tips to get around the town. I would say they can make anyones stay a good time. 24/7 bar for the younger crowd but since the building is 4 or 5 stories you can go to bed whenever you want and won't here any commotion from downstairs.

Very clean place. Minutes away from a bus stop that brings you to the central station. Lots of activities in the hostel itself and I would recommend. Stayed in a mixed 12 bed room and no complaints

Booked last second and was worried, but this place was great! Fun bar/public space downstairs, very helpful staff, good security. Location was a bit out of the way and the wifi only worked in the lobby.

Needs wi-fi in the rooms. No privacy on main floor and gets pretty loud. The staff Lorenzo and Katerina both were kind and extremely helpful. Really friendly people willing to go that extra mile. Great job to the both of you.

Berlin was the best place we've been to so far in Europe. And this was a good place to stay. One downside was no WiFi in the rooms, and hard to get a signal for data. Room was clean and located near the underground which runs through the night which is perfect if you're out till late. Staff were good and we were here for a bbq on the Friday which was cool and nice burgers and cheap beer.

The location was pretty far from the center of the city. You could rent bicycles for 12 euros or go with the S Bahne.

Was a nice hostel overall, just a bit far for me from Mitte and other districts and the area is not very good for nightlife or eating out. However, the U bahn station was not far, or, if you don't mind walking alot, you can go walk by the Tiergarten and reach the Brandenburg Gate in about 45 mins. The style of the hostel is better suited to big groups and younger people in my opinion.

visitors who stay Amastel hostel can move to main place in Berlin by TXL bus within 15minute to enjoy city. Also, for those who has to leave Berlin and move to TEGEL airport in the early morning, I recommend this place. It takes only 20 minutes from Amstel hostel. very nice, and also, there is kitchen where you can cook by yourself and beer bar to enjoy beer or wine etc. you can store your important stuff into wide locker if you have your own key. nice, and thank you.

We are used to stay at 4 or 5 star hotels but we chose this hostels because we couldn't find anything with reasonable prices during our time in Berlin, so we were waiting this hostel to be rather bad. Fortunately we were wrong. We had a room for two. The beds were comfortable, neighbors (if there were any) quiet and the room itself was clean enough. In the room there was also a table and a closet. Staff was friendly and helpful.

no wifi in rooms, slow elevator, just one toilet for women in the floor. the position of electrical sockets was the worst. you could not lay dawn in your bed and use your phone during charging. but I like the lobby of the hostel and the staffs' behavior that were really nice and friendly.

I disliked that the wifi is only in the lobby. Also there were only 2 plug ins in my room. But 8 people. I liked that there was a full kitchen. Breakfast isn't included you have to pay for it, and it was definitely not worth 5 euros.

The location was very good, quite central and very close to the underground. Schoenefeld airport 1hour away from the Hostel by public transports. Some of the staff was nice but others were not so welcoming and able to provide assistance in a nice manner. The internet never worked when there was a few people using it and even when there was only 4 people (for example) using it, it was still very poorly.

The hostel is very nice overall. Good common area: bar, living room, computers.. Etc. Location is not ideal, but its not completely bad either (far by foot from touristic area, but close by metro). HOWEVER, the big deal breaker for us was the fact there was no wifi in any of the rooms intentionally to make people bond, and when your device actually connect it to the net, the internet was really bad. Showers were also annoying since you had to re-turn it on every 10 seconds. But overall good!

We enjoyed our stay here, the location was great only 5min walk to metro/bus and then 15mins by bus to Berlin. Clean facilities and lovely staff.
