Changing rooms without any compensation does not make you a place one would want to stay again at.
I had to find last-minute accommodations for a single night in Berlin and chose this hostel because of its location. It was clean and safe, but I wasn't a fan of the atmosphere. I had a rough time meeting people as a solo traveler, and the people in my room were loud and immature.
Staying at Baxpax Downtown hostel was an enjoyable experience. The staff was attentive, courteous, and helpful. The location was within easy walking distances of many of Berlin's attractions and surrounding areas. The facilities were clean and secure.
fun and exciting atmosphere. the bar area was really cool and the rooms were clean
Whenever I'm in Berlin I'm staying here. It's in my opinion the best hostel in Berlin. Staff is doing an excellent job, rooms are spacious and comfy, bathrooms are clean and the common areas are great. The only thing is the breakfast for 6.50 €. It's either too expensive or too less on offer.
This is a nice place but a little too pricey for what you get. Lounge area was the highlight - very nice place to relax. Overall clean and staff were helpful, no kitchen facilities though.
Absolutely loved this place! Staff are AAAA Location is great... Facilities awesome

Good hostel, beds are noisy. Kind of out of the way, but overall, I'd recommend.
Weird bed arrangement... but otherwise I had a great stay! (Also you have to keep pressing the shower button for water, but there's good water pressure!)
It was a fantastic place to stay, the only issue we had was that since we were on the 5th floor and it was quite warm when we stayed our room was pretty hot at night which made it a little harder to fall asleep. This was more than made up for by the fact that the hostel staff were amazing, and the addition of an inflatable pool on the rooftop near the bar made dealing with the heat easy!
Staff were mostly helpful with the exception of the odd occasions. Rooms see huge and very clean as are the bathrooms, except when the lights go out (on a timer). Great atmosphere for travellers as there is a large common area where you can meet lots of people. Hostel has it's own bar and restaurant with great food and drinks. Rooftop terrace is beautiful, amazing location close to the main train station, subway and all attractions. Free walking tour.
Probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! Everyone hangs out together in the evenings before going out, it's almost impossible to stay there and not make a friend or two along the way. The atmosphere was unlike anything I have ever experienced before, couldn't speak more highly of it!!
Wifi was not good and the quarters were cramped but otherwise it was ok
This hostel is great. Pros: very easy to navigate from the station (about 25min walk or 10 min metro
The perfect place to stay in Berlin. Very close to the Friedrichstrasse station, but everything is within walking distance. Lockers in the room as well as in a luggage storage room. Every room required entry with a key card. The hostel had a restaurant, bar, backyard terrace area with an inflatable pool, and rooftop bar with another pool. The staff were very nice, friendly, and helpful. Lots of young people staying there, so it was easy to find good conversation or people to go out with!
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Internet was either great or terrible (about 70/30), that's my only complaint.
Excellent location, security, and staff, not to mention a great atmosphere for all ages! We travelled in a group of six and when we initially booked, we thought we would be split into two rooms. When we arrived, the staff had already arranged for us to have our own room by moving an extra bed into a 5 person bedroom. We all agreed that we could not have found a better hostel!
Very clean place, but the lack of lighting during the afternoon and excessive sunlight early in the morning made sleeping tough. Would have appreciated more advice from the staff when asking for help.
