I wouldn't stay here again. The beds and bathrooms didn't seem that clean, the bunk beds were metal and squeaked, location not that close to main attractions. Guest kitchen was okay, but not open until 10am...meaning you either paid €5 for their minimal breakfast or went out. I like to cook eggs so that was a disappointment. Also, school groups stay here so it's very loud at night and in morning. Pros=friendly staff, laundry service was awesome (€6), and cheap drinks at happy hour!

Unfortunately WIFI works only in the lobby. Our room was not very warm. The reception staff was friendly and willing to help. Overall we were satisfied with this hostel.

A great basic place to stay. The private rooms are simple but comfortable enough, and clean shared bathrooms. It's a hostel, so there's a student buzz and atmosphere, but there's plenty of tables for sitting and working/socializing, affordable beer, and overall it's a very good deal. Hopefully down the road the wifi might stretch to the rooms, but we've stayed at Amstel before and definitely would again.

We stayed in the standard twin room (shared bathroom) and it looked different than the one in the picture gallery (which seems to be an ensuite one). Our room was less spacious and had metal bunk beds. Which is fine I guess but I was a bit surprised.

Was a nice enough place but the vibe just wasn't the best. Because the hostel is so large it is hard to actually meet new people, which is part of the main attraction of a hostel.

The hostel needs a refurbishment, but its too big and busy for this in a row, the heatings were ugly and some sanitares really with charme of the 70th, and there should be time for paint the walls with better colours, sometimes a house needs a litttle break. The beds were very good and You can sleep well, the was staff nice, bud sometimes unskilled and unorganised, the wlan was great and free in the hall, not in the rooms.

The place is pretty big, so it's hard to want to mingle among so many. Happy drinks at 1.50€ made it a bit easier. The rooms were fair, and bathrooms were clean. The staff, both day and night, were very friendly and helpful. it's a few blocks tk any oubkic transportation, but easy enough to get around Berlin by Sbahn/Ubahn and bus.

Amstel house was a fine Hostel but nothing really special. Common kitchen was always filthy and didn't have the best equipment and materials. Rooms were comfortable and provided a great lovable closet with hangers and a shelf. Amstel House were host to a lot of high school groups who were running around the halls at night. Expect a 45 min walk to anything going on in the city otherwise you will need to hop on a bus or metro.

Rather far out of the city center, but close to several grocery stores and the river. The staff weren't the most helpful people, but the hostel is so big it's hard to blame them! Not a very social atmosphere in the lobby, but has a great communal kitchen.

Pretty standard. Think it's a chain hostel so quite ordinary. wifi only in lobby.

Very comfy beds, a little bit out of the city but easy walk the the U-line. Very relaxing place NOT a party hostel, would stay here again and would recommend it people wanting to relax a bit!
