The wifi didn't work in the 5th floor, where we were sleeping, nevertheless it worked in the reception where there were also some computers to be used by the guests (without paying).

Friendly, clean, and great atmosphere hostel. A little 'out of the way' though so be prepared to walk / catch the underground everyday to sightsee or go out partying

We came to hostel, our room was already waoting for us (happy coincidence), pictures online are misleading, rooms are small and kind of prison like feeling. Absolutely no cuttlery (spoons) in kitchen!!! How can that be?

A bit far away from everything but still easy to get to with public transport and to share a cab isn't too expensive. Room and showers/toilets were all very clean. Good showers. Had a lot of fun downstairs, bar is open late and it's a great place to meet people. There was a BBQ one night I was there and it was very good value for money. Met so many great people here. I think it would also be good for families or people not looking to party as upstairs is very quiet- I was on the 1st floor.

Great hostel in a good neighborhood, lots of turkish foodshops around. Staff was very helpfull, room was good, as well as the bathroom. Positive that there are plenty of bathrooms. Only complaint is about the noise the spanish people made, but this is smth the hostel can't help. Overall great stay and one of the best hostels I've ever slept in

I really enjoyed my stay their. the staff were very nice and helpful. it was one of the neatest hostels i have been to. only problem was there is no wifi in the rooms but that worked out well because you get to meet people in the lobby and common areas.

This place was a pleasant surprise. The area was family oriented, two blocks off a main strip called Turmstr. which incidentally had great and frequent bus service. It was not near any sketchy clubs. It has a decent sized communal kitchen, ample seating, and is very near to excellent halal grocery stores. Also across the street from a really fun, slow paced, safe farmers market. The staff have service down to an art, no matter what crazy things get in the lobby. Genuinely nice people. 24h bar.

This hostel has a really good vibe, there is always something going on and the place is huge. The location is a bit of a drawback and the Wi-Fi doesn't get to your room. I still had a great time at this hostel

This is probably the best hostel we've stayed at during our eurotrip! Very nice dorms, good security, no noise from the street and a nice bar area. A little far from center, but depends on your standards..... We walked home One evening, or Else It's like 30 min by metro. Very good value for money. Only critical thing: no wifi in the dorms.

It's loud. Be aware of that. But as long as you recognize that and you're okay with it, you'll have a great time. I met a lot of great people from hanging out around the bar. Also be aware that wifi is free, but you can only get it on the first floor.

Only slight knock would be the location, which isn't bad but isn't the best. There is an underground station about 5-7 minutes walk from the hostel. Great atmosphere inside. Amazing price! One of the cheapest in Berlin but you definitely get your money's worth!

It's quite far out of town, but most Berlin hostels are. Big bar downstairs which is good. Awful internet, painfully slow. Rooms are nice and quite large, with a table.

It was a great Hostel with good atmosphere, the only bad thing is located a little far away from the main attractions

A good atmosphere but a massive hostel making it pretty difficult to meet people. Quite a lot of school groups which makes it not ideal for travellers. Also quite noisy as it has its own bar. Location is not great, when you turn up you think you are in completely the wrong place as it's located in quite a run-down residential area but to get a bus into town isn't difficult but obviously not ideal. All in all not a great hostel but not a bad one!

Very big hostel so good to meet people. Rooms are quite crowded and can get very warm! Staff are very nice and helpful but location is quite a distance from train station and centre


63%

Staff was rude and unhelpful. Whenever I asked for directions they seemed as if they had better things to do. Hostel staff is so important and so that was a major turn off for me. Common room and lounge/lobby is very nice and big, bar with happy hour is cool and cheap. Kitchen rules (opens late/closed early) very inconvenient, rooms are tiny and hospital like, wifi is impossible and only in certain parts of lobby. Neighborhood boring but easy to get to the center with transit. Very mediocre!
