The hostel is very nice and clean, but it's so large that it's hard to get to know any of your fellow travelers. Also, the WiFi is complete bad.


Awesome rooms, toilet and shower in the room which was good and big lockers to put your stuff into, no kitchen though so you had to buy everything. The staff were pretty rude, lacked information, every time you asked a question it seemed like it was such an effort for them.


Good location, walking distance to most of the important sights we wanted to see. The staff seemed a little stressed out at times, but was nice nonetheless. Our room was really nice.

One of the beds had some kind of bugs in the matress. Some of the staff could be better - in way of helping and straight answers and so on.


Not my cup of tea. A party hostel, no relaxing communal place or kitchen, no safe place to lock a bike. A very busy atmosphere, loud music, and a low lit room to sit and use the Internet. The dorm room was average no the cleanest buy spacious.


this hostel is more of a nice hotel! the rooms were very clean and the beds incredibly comfy. I stayed in a 5 bed shared and it was amazing for the price. There is a nice common area with pool table and a bar and lounge(slightly overpriced) free walking tours pick you up right at reception. the terrace and pool were closed even though it stated they were open when booking. overall I would recommend!


Such a cool vibe set by the team, grab a drink, socialize and head out with friends you've made throughout your stay. Very clean, comfortable and affordable! I was recommended to stay here and shall do the same for friends visiting Berlin. Thankyou


I enjoyed the time that i spent there, good location, food cheap and amazing. But the wifi was a problem in my room.

Cool place! Good location, clean, good safety stuff, nice chill out areas and a bar !! Really good value for money!!!


Had a great time here. The bar area was great for meeting people and had a great atmosphere. Safe


It's a cool set up but some of the staff are really rude. The bar is good and the games room is cool. It's a bit out of the way in terms of location and wifi doesn't work in the big dorm


Hostel didn't have sauna working when I was there although advertised. And that sauna was the make or break for me. Compulsory bed linens means the price was more than I expected to pay. There was also no kitchen which should be compulsory in all hostels unless they offer free breakfast. They most likely don't have a kitchen to force you to eat at the attached restaurant. Definitly would only stay here because of the good location. There are better hostels in berlin and for cheaper, avoid if can

The best place to stay.


Good location, but no kitchen made a longer stay at the hostel very expensive.


Supposedly a hostel. But no kitchen. They could of offered discount at the bar considering we had to eat there. One of the bar staff was kinda weird too


Good quality international stream of women,


It was too institutive. The staffs were not friendly. No friendliness, all about money. Pay and do whatever you want. But there were a good common area with pool and other games. People hang on, so it was good to make friends. Wi-fi cannot be used in downstairs.


The main guy was great, but all the other staff was entirely unhelpful or just plain rude, they always acted like I was inconveniencing them when I asked for anything, even a beer! (a beer which took 15 minutes to arrive as I watched the bartender chat to her friends)

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in, in fact it beats the majority of hotels I've stayed in and at the fraction of the price! The friendly atmosphere of the hostel was the best, the staff were great and I've made friends from all over the world who I will be keeping in contact with.


central place to stay and really cheap if you stay in the 30 p - dorm. I found bedbugs in my bed and showed it to the people working there and they did not act on it as a serious matter for us travellers which really bothered me. After a discussion I managed to get another bed but they didnt really clean out the contaminated one properly. Cheap and clean-ish and a pretty hipp atmospehere.
