The hostel was nice enough, the location is wonderful, close to bars and pubs, and a beer shop just meters from the door. However, the common room closes at 11 or something, so don't try to stay up talking to any other guest or make friends. Also, the one person room I stayed in might be claustrophobic for some, as it is only wide enough to stand between your bed and the wall.


Location isn't very central, but it's easy to get to wherever you need to go by walking to train station nearby. The staff here are lovely, even working overtime to help us while we were there. The place is clean, and has a free cereal you can grab anytime of the day if you're hungry. Atmosphere was chill, and we found the neighborhood around very peaceful. Would recommend if you looking for something with good value for money, excellent staff, and you don't mind travelling a bit.


Everything was ok, but they need to clean the common bathroom more often.


I have to say that when I walked up to this place I felt very unsafe. In the end it was an ok place, but had I not been in a group, I would have left. The area is very grungy and you have to walk 8-15 minutes (depending on your speed and luggage) from the train station, not 5 like they advertise. You also have to pay for Wifi and the free breakfast is cereal hidden in a corner. Wifi wasn't a bad deal, 1 euro for 12 hours (not consecutive), but hard to use multiple devices.


I would definetly come back to stay at Backpacker Berlin!! The staff are very helpful and professional. We stayed in their doublerooms for 4 nights with clean andr fresh beds and linnens. The hostel has an ATM just around the corner and a great choise of bars and restaurants in the area! It is also very easy to take the subway from here or the tram in any direction. Thanks for a great stay!!

very far away of city center, u should pay for wifi


Our room was too noisy becasuse it was next to the common area. There was nobody attending the reception at night and some nigths there were people ringing the doorbell althought there was nobody there to open.


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.


The receptionist Sofie gave us the superb hospitality and welcome feeling

The room was a bit small, but everything else was fine. There are cereals and coffee available for whole day - great!


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.
