This hostel is good for solo travellers. It's got a very chill and laid back atmosphere. The wifi works but only if your room is near the reception.


Hello!!! We spent (Kate and Alaaaa from Finland and Sweden) a nice week in Berlin. The city is amazing and the hostel is the best hostel ever. We spent nice time there...the receptionist called Simone (italian) is so cute and he helped us to find the best punk bar in Kreuzberg. Also the guy Antò is so friendly and was living there even if apparently he has a room in Berlin (not so far away from the Hostel). thank you :) see you soon Guys. Kate&Alaaaaah from Scandinavia! :D :D :D

In a really nice area, and right across the road from one the main metro lines. Good atmosphere and common areas, decent kitchen. Only downside was the wifi didn't work through the whole hostel, only in the main reception area, and you weren't allowed to bring your own drinks in.


The staff was very stand off ish and acted like it was a burden for us to be there. A couple of them were fine, still nowhere near the warm and pleasant people you would ideally like to be greeted by. The wifi was incredibly spotty and did not work in our room, and only worked in one of the common rooms and a small corner of the other one. However, it would frequently be down and not working as well.


Loved this place, met tons of awesome people. close to good bars and good food. gret common space, nice clean showers , big open rooms. would deffs stay here again


Cool place. Close to the clubs if that's what your hear for. Train station right out the front. Wifi is temperamental and the hot water doesn't last too long


Very relaxing hostel to stay in. Good location to enjoy Berlin nightlife and easy to meet other travelers. decent kitchen and beds are really comfortable. Wi fi is not very reliable throughout the hostel and the hostel could improve with more power outlets in the rooms and bathrooms. And, maybe fixing the flooded bathroom so it's usable. But overall, good value for money.


Only 4 showers for every one. Only had two power points in my 16 bed dorm The lounge area is cool, can watch good movies Super handy to the train station and the staff are really cool Nice bar too


This hostel was a happening place, lots of young travellers worth talking to. Very annoyed , however at having to pay a few euro for bed sheets, it should definitely be included in the price. Also there are not enough lockers for everyone but you can leave valuables at reception. Not many powerpoints in the rooms either.


This hostel used to be even better when you could smoke inside, but the atmosphere is still great and I can only recommend it!


Cool hostel, with a lot of areas to chill out in. It has the potential to be amazing although the staff were unfriendly, rude and didn't seem approachable. Room was clean, pretty noisy at night, bit of a dodgy entrance especially at night. Great location if you want to stay in Kreuzberg.


Not the nicest part of town. Actually probably the worst. But awesome place to meet people with awesome staff. Crowded rooms but I'd stay here again because you'll meet some awesome people.


arrived in berlin and we were really disappointed with this hostel. the girl was rude and made us wait 20 minutes. the wifi didn't work so we just we straight to bed and checked out in the morning. they even try to charge for the computers...


Wifi would basically stop working regularly and need to be constantly restarted by staff and was minimal in the rooms. There www only 9 lockers in the form of 16 and only two power points which is was so frustrating in such a large dorm. Maybe a switch board should be provided in the centre of the room. Laundry also lost 3 items of me and my friends washing and was very unapologetic and reluctant to Help.


anything goes at baxpax - loved the vibe of this place. definitely a 24hr spot.


Bedroom doors didn't close properly, people in our dorm had things stolen. Location was great, a bit of a dodgy area though. The lady who checked us in was rude and unfriendly, as if we were naughty school children. Stupid no alcohol policy, only alcohol from their over priced bar, no atmosphere. The cleaning staff do a good job though, but one of the worst hostels, would not stay again


if you want to hit up the night life in Berlin then this is the place to stay! Train is right out the front too. The kitchen is awesome and so is the hang out area with TV and plenty of couches ! Some staff were lovely - Robin is the best - but others could be a bit rude sometimes. The showers were either boiling hot or freezing cold and they didn't fix them for the whole time we were there (8days). Overall it has everything a hostel needs, we enjoyed it and would come back for sure!


Good hostel to spend a few nights in kreuzberg, perfect location if you want to spend some time clubbing, only 2 metro stops from Berghain and watergate.haven't used any facilities and the crowd was a bit too young when I was there, why hang out in a hostel when you have top class clubs around the corner.


While in a great location, let down by a few different things. About half of the staff were pleasant and helpful, while the other half were unhelpful and at times quite rude. The showers were ok the first time we used them, but were so hot every other time it would have been painful to actually use them. A lot of the other guests there were nice people though and made our stay more enjoyable. Would probably look for an alternative next time though.


The people in the hostel didn't respect other guests at all. They had a party in my room all night and it just was annoying. The music of the bar of the hostel was also pretty loud till late night. Rooms and all other facilities weren't nice either, wouldn't recommend this hostel at all.
