The beds were clean and comfortable and staff welcoming and willing to help. The only thing, though, is that you have to purchase Wifi for 1 Euro per 12 hours. However, there are computers with internet access free of charge serving as an alternative to Wifi.

The staff was very friendly and helpful when we had questions about the area and even gave us a great suggestion for dinner. The location is in a great spot to reach the train station and it was in a nice neighborhood with lots of culture. The beds were very comfortable and there was lots of hot water for showering. My only complaint is that the wireless internet that you could purchase was sketchy and would just stop working but they did have two computers set up in the lounge for use.

Great location, a short walk to transport. Lots of cool bars and cheap restaurants all around the hostel. Double bed room was large, shared bathrooms were clean. Kitchen has very basic equipment and was a bit disorganised but otherwise adequate. Wifi was 1 euro for 12 hours of use, which was ok.

Very well equiped, very clean, staff helpful and smiling but not invasive, all the services needed were available. Thanks for the great atmosphere, it's unusual to feel that much at ease in a hostel ! I will definitly recommand your place if I ever have friends visiting Berlin.

Had a great time visiting Germany for the first time, plenty of shower and toilet facilities, and free breakfast too! There wasn't many people there when we went so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. Mitte is just a ride away on the S9, which is a five minute walk away from the hostel.

Good hostel, and nice environment, it's not so close to the main sights, but it's not so far, if you're strong you can go everywhere walking. Recommend :D

Great location and nice spacy room (deluxe suite). It was our second time there. We would very much recommend it. A lot of great bars, restaurants and clubs nearby. We were only disappointed by the shower facilities. Standing in a bath tub, needing to hold a shower head and with a gross shower curtain (or what it used to be) around it is not my thing.

The room we booked was very small but the shared bathroom was huge. It doesn't feel very clean although the sheets were the most important things to be clean and they were perfect. The location is a bit further from Ostkreuz but there is a tram going to Warschauerstraße. Nice places in the proximity.

An absolutely fantastic stay! The staff couldn't do enough for us, and our room was clean, comfortable and secure (padlockable lockers). We were a ten-minute walk away from the U-Bahn stop and so 20 min away from the centre, also close to lovely cafés and restaurants. One of the best hostels I have stayed in...EVER!

This is the second time I've stayed at Backpackers Berlin and I would definitely stay there again. Simple double rooms, great neighbourhood location, beautiful tree lined street, close to corner shops and Boxhangerplatz. A little loud on our first night (Saturday) but no problems afterwards for the rest of our stay.
