Backpacker Berlin is situatied in a bustling neighbourhood with great nightlife - from bars, parks and clubs. Hostel is only about five to ten minutes away from the tram station, from where you can get to Alexanderplatz in only 10 minutes. Staff was friendly and helpful, however the facilities are a bit messy. Hostel is otherwise cozy with usable kitchen and also provides a small free breakfast (cereals, coffee, tea). Would defenitely stay there again if we visit Berlin for a second time.

The hostel is lovely and the staff were really helpful. The only thinngs letting it down were the lack of bedside lights, and that several of the showers were broken.


Great location calm and close to everything but the shower drain was blocked, one wood stick of the bed was broken so the entire bed was crinky all night Also the breakfast needs a big improvement (cereals were a bite old)

Nice hostel and a good location (near eastside wall galery).. But, actually i never saw a hostel that you need to pay for the wifi and it doesn't have a good signal in the room And careful because the price doesn't include the TVA. I didn't see if it was write but you will need to pay +10%


Fantastic atmosphere and the free breakfast all day is brilliant!! Bottle shop on the corner, you become well acquainted with them soon enough. Staff are super nice and easy to get along with. In a really cool part of town.


The staff is very nice and willing to help!


Everything was awesome except for the 20 minute walk out to anything fun. The hostel itself was nice and the staff were amazing.


Air conditioning in the rooms would have been nice. Breakfast could include bread instead of just cereals.


A little long walk from the u-bahn, but not that bad. I liked that the breakfast was included but just keep in mind the wifi is not free (i was not prepared for that...), but there's at least a public pc you can use for free ». My room was big and had a couch, which i enjoyed. There were also enough bathrooms in the hostel to keep everyone satisfied.


Realy nice for the price located in an alternative district in Berlin, It will be better if the wifi was free


Free breakfast included however no wifi, but they did have two computers. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a kitchen, however, people didn't always put stuff away so it did get dirty. Great location for East Side Gallery and for exploring Friedrichstein neighbourhood, which is one of our favourites. Came here before 15 months ago and has improved since then!


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 :)
