The 30 people dorm is nice and clean but there's no wi-fi connection there. Generally the hostel is really nice, modern and clean but wi-fi signal is really low also in the common spaces: furthermore since there is also a bar/restaurant in the structure, there's not much space left to the guests that don't want to use the bar but just to sit down and eat their own food. Then, despite of other hostels, there's n kitchen available.

Don't go there if you want to meet people and have the hostel vibe. This hostel is more of a cheap Hotel with bunk beds rather than a hostel. However if you are looking for a cheap hotel and you are a group of friends, this is a fairly nice one and well situated. Staff wasn't very helpful as we booked a 3 bed private apartment and ended up paying for a 5 bed dorm (so pay more, less privacy.) Overall, great location if you are here to visit Berlin but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this.

Whenever I'm in Berlin I stay at Baxpax Downtown in Mitte. I've always been very satisfied with everyone and everything. I look forward to being there again very soon. It seems like my Berlin home, away from home!

A fab hostel in a very central part of Berlin. Everything was easily reachable on foot, and S and U Bahns were only minutes away. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the rooms great. The bar downstairs served great food and drinks were really reasonably priced!! Would def stay again!! :)

Perhaps other areas are better, but the K-studio, the 30 bed basement dorm room, is a total dump. It's not particularly clean and is haven for disease--I left with three different illnesses. Plus the cleaning service took my towel and when I went to the front desk they held up their hands and didn't do anything. Further, the hours for the bar are totally arbitrary. Even though it is advertised as being open to 1 AM, most nights it seems to close at 10 PM. This place was disappointing.

Lovely hostel in a great, central location - all of the tourist sites were within easy walking distance. Staff also very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay here and would definitely return in the future!

Great location (near Bhf Friedrichstrasse), great staff who is eager to help you on your way. However, you can't really hang out and meet people in the 'bar' as it doesn't really have a bar-like atmosphere. Breakfast is pretty expensive so buy your own at the supermarket at Bhf Friedrichstrasse!

Excellent place to stay, very central, cosy, clean, comfortable, nice athmosphere. Single rooms a bit pricey, but will definitely stay here again next time in Berlin.

Hostel and location are excellent and is definitely worth the money. The only drawback is that it doesn't have a kitchen.

Nice and clean but a bit anonymous. Doesn't have a "hostel"-feel to it, more "huge corporation" but it's super clean and has a lounge area and a separate bar/resturant. Not a paty-hostel but the subway is within walking distance so no troubles getting around.

Hostel is great for New Year's Eve. The staff is hit and miss. Overall good but several staff are unacceptably unprofessional and rude. Breakfast is REALLY overpriced, but common areas are superb for socializing. Everything was clean in the rooms, but they didn't provide hand soap in the bathrooms, which is gross and no other hostel has required me to provide hand soap while I've backpacked through Europe. Not having a kitchen is a big negative. 24 hour reception is great.
