This hostel was around a 10 minute train ride away to anything more central to Berlin. Berlin is a huge city so don't get me wrong, there is no 'centre' but it did feel like we were on the outskirts. In terms of the hostel itself it was above average. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our bags, staff were friendly and rooms were big enough. lots of places to eat and drink within walking distance and a good atmosphere and buzz about the place.


sThe shower and kitchen were not hygienic, there were no soaps. The living room was really nice, but although you weren't allowed to smoke indoors, all the cigarrette smoke came in from the terrace door.


great hostel!! the staff was helpful and lovely, i had a great time there. the hostel is located in a quiet street, in a neighbourhood that has an active night life. also, backpacker berlin offers a great deal to rent bicycles for the day. when i go back to berlin i ll be looking forward to stay again at that hostel :)

Booked this room on a whim after fleeing from a terrible experience at a nearby hostel with a 96% rating. This place was great. Cool atmosphere-not stuffy, common room kind of had a college dorm feel(in a good way). Free breakfast. AMAZINGLY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF (a rarity in Berlin it seems). The bed was not the most comfortable I've ever slept on but it did the trick. Landry facilities were on point! Close to a bunch of cute restaurants and bars.


I little bit too far away from city center (it took me around 1 hour to walk to TV tower, so around 1.5 hours to other main attractions). The staff here is so nice.


We had a wonderful stay in here! In the heart of Friedrickshein near many nice places. Supergood staff and a warm atmosphere! :)
