Great hostel. Its only weak point is that some of the staff members are a bit rude.


Great hostel especially for the rate but the basement dorm was very dark. It was a bit strange and inconvenient to have ensuite showers but not toilets. Also the showers were timed, as well as the bathroom lights, which was very annoying as they kept switching off. Staff friendly but not the most communal vibe from fellow guests. Location central to everything.


Great atmosphere at BaxPax. We were in the 30 room hostel which was surprisingly nice and quiet and plenty of space for keeping big bags with lockers which could be locked if you brought a padlock. This big dorm was in the basement and didn't have any air con so was very warm but it was easy to keep cool using the sheet rather than the duvet. The common area was great for meeting new people and having a drink before going out. Very clean bathroom facilities and good to have fresh linen.


I stayed with my friend in this hostel just for one night. but we had the best time in there. staff were amazing, always kind. and the atmosphere was great too. i would stay there again.


Loved the hostel. Clean room, bathroom and toilet. Very good location near the friedrichstrasse. The lounge was perfect for a early morning cup of coffee.

I really suggest this Hostel! And the localocation is great!


It would be nice if there were security or crew that comes in the room to inspect it (not the cleaning crew) because The first day I got there the room was trashed by 4 Irish girls staying there a few days before I got there. There were many drinks and alcoholic beverages multiplying every night until they left, which was a day before my departure. The cleaning crew cleaned up very nicely but to wait that long before they were gone was hell.debris and alcohol accrued from their arrival till dep.


Met some cool people. Wifi not great. Bar is good as was the food. I prefer Baxpax kreuzeberg


This hostel was very modern and clean however we stayed in the 30 bed dorm which due to its size and layout made meeting people very difficult. When you enter you enter the hotel part and the dorm is down the stairs with no windows but it is fine. The photos are obviously all of the hotel and not the hostel.


Perfect as always :) love it !


Really great location, friendly staff, very clean and great facilities. If the weather is nice they open the rooftop terrace which has a very small inflatable pool and a bar which is really cool. I stayed in a two bed apartment which was also really nice and clean etc. I would recommend this hostel to young people that want a bit more luxury than usual hostels - still so much fun and would come back 100%.


No kitchen as there is a bar. The basement K room is so dark, as no main lights but the bedside lamps aren't that good.


Second time here and stayed in the large basement dorm - was perfect for me. The hostel has an always lively common room and bar, which is great for socialising and meeting other travellers. Staff are also good!


Good place to stay in an easily accessible location not far away from main public transportation and central Berlin historical places. Got an upgrade from dorms to private room due to some technical fault in the system :). Nice lively bar area and common room which is great for meeting people. Good value for money (y)


We travelled throughout Europe for 3 and a half weeks and this was one of the best places we stayed, the rooms are quite big and decorated very nicely. Great hostel vibes too, atmosphere in the lounge area was really good making it quite easy to make friends. Only a few minutes walk from the train station, with the Reichstag, Brandenburg gate etc all within walking distance (20 mins).


stunningly priced. this is a hotel. facilities incredible. 10/10 location a little out the way for nightlife but only a 15 minute train journey


Good location. Great place to meet people if you are traveling alone. Walking tour and the pub crawl recommended by the hostel is good.


At check in, the girl didn't give me eye contact when telling me the "terms and conditions", all was said fast so i was a little confused. Another reception girl was dismissive when i was wanting to ask a Q. A girl asked politely for her glass of coke to be filled to the top ( not 2 thirds full, like the girl had filled it) and she messily poured it into an other smaller glass. She had angry vibes after, slamming drawers closed so i refrained from ordering anything after seeing her attitude.


Fantastic location, very helpful and friendly staff. All round great stay.


Half hostel-half hotel with the best garden/courtyard I've seen in a while, great common room. At night it sort of turns into a bar/club
