The hostel was the friendliest hostel I have ever stayed in. Everyone got on so well and the smallness of the hostel really helped. The staff on arrival were a bit dismissive and could have been more helpful. The area as cool, lots of good places eat and drink. When I go back to Berlin I am staying here. All in all Berlin was amazing and this hostel was a big contributing factor!
The staff at the hostel were not helpful and quite rude most of the time but that didn't affect the stay too much. There's a few places to hang out and you'll meet a range of people from the really nice guys to the edgy arseholes who just want to talk about how much ket they did last night or at how they're such a free spirit. Overall a really good stay because Berlin is incredible.
It's good, the ubication is really good, near to a lot of bars, and night clubs. i loved kreuzberg. The people in hostel was nice (the spanien girl and italian guy), but there are not enough bathrooms and it's a little far from the room. Anyway i recommend it
Travelling alone, got off the train was followed for about 5mins after actually finding the hostel i arrived to a very miserable women who didn't interact with me at all. Booked for 5 nights, stayed one and moved to a different hostel after being told that the lockers had been brocken into twice already that week. Very loud at night with little atmosphere. All in all not a good stay.
Had a very pleasant stay, all staff were pleasant and helpful except for one member of staff who was very passive aggressive about us being a little late for check out. Other than that everything was great!

Great location (although be careful of the nearby parks as there's lots of drug dealers) but avoiding them is easy. Close to centre and party areas, great lounge to chill and staff are fairly knowledgeable and friendly. A bit pricy in comparison but worth it for the place.
It's right in the center of Kreuzberg; it's got a quite big lounge with pool and sofas where's always a lot of people chilling (nice atmosphere). Beds are confortable, the staff is nice, there is a beautiful terrace and the toilets are clean; seems perfect but there are a lot of glitches: you can't bring your own alcohol inside and the prices at the bar are very high (that's really not fair), most of rooms haven't got lockers, you can't get to the terrace and kitchen after 22, wifi is bad..ecc
The location of the hostel is amazing. In the middle of an awesome neighbourhood, with a lot of cheap places to eat and drink around. Not too many tourists and many locals. Also, close to the Watergate and other places to go out, at a walking distance. The staff of the hostel are really nice and help you out with many questions. Their advice made our trip really a lot of fun!
Everything was ok. Just the number of showers is a problem: only a few showers for all the rooms.
The hostel is right in front of the metro station what is great. The staff were very very nice all the time. I totally recommend the hostel although I should say there could be more plugs at the rooms (I left mine charging at the reception) and there and lockers inside the bedroom cause its a bit annoying having to.leave your bedroom all the time you want something in your backpack (the lockers are in the hall)
If you're after a quiet place to put your bags down and sleep in, I'd probably recommend looking elsewhere. But if you're looking for a social experience, want to meet new people (both travellers and locals), and like chilling out with a beer in the common room or on the smoking balcony, this is the hostel for you. Facilities we're fine and staff were relaxed, no complaints there. Kreuzberg is an awesome area of Berlin to stay in. All in all, highly recommend.
Great location in the heart of Kreuzberg. Have stayed 4 times but first review, so have based on all stays. Atmosphere has always been great, however our most recent stay not so good as the guy working played a weird selection of pop-punk that drove most people out early. All the facilities you need, and beers sold. Smoke inside in the evening means you don't have to stand in the cold in the winter months. Overall pretty chilled with sound staff. Will be back.
awesome location in the heart of Kreuzberg, directly opposite the metro. cool hostel with two large common rooms , v. cheap beer, nice kitchen with a balcony to eat on. great value for money, would definitely stay here again next time when we return to Berlin
A very good hostel! But the problem it's the location... In front of the metro/subway station, but in this station, have a LOT of guys seeling drugs.. In the night it's a little scaried past over there... But this is the only one negative point, because it's great hostel
The hostel itself was great and I would recommend it to young travelers. Just be aware that you have to walk past from strange people between the property and the U Bahn.
You cannot claim your a party hostel and not allow guests to bring there own drinks in. Really disappointed with the atmosphere as a result. Saving grace is a great little off licence next door that allows you to sit in there as long as you like and go a bit crazy! That being said I wouldn't stay at baxpax again. If I go to Berlin I would like to party and therefore a hostel that embraces this.
The room was bright and clean, and it didn't feel crowded at all. However, three electrical outlets for a 9 bed room was too little. The Internet was very unreliable too and impossible to connect from my room. The staff was also very disinterested in helping us (except for one lady! Sadly didn't catch her name). Other than that, clean, cheap,and in a good location. Good value.
The stay war good, we had a private room for 2 people. The room was small and very simple but clean. We had a private bath but we needed to get outside to go to it. In general - good sleeping possibility for a short stay. The price for private room is still too much regrading the simplicity of the room (2 beds, small wardrobe, table and 2 chairs). But the location is great. Its pity there were no breakfasts but we got some good recommendations for it.

Absolutely the worst hostel I've ever stayed in, and it's a long list. No great drama leaving me with a grudge to bear with a bad review. It's just very dirty, no hot water, smoky inside, extra hidden charge of 2.50 for sheets (I thought that practice had died out long ago), inattentive staff, etc etc. Good location, but that's it. Go anywhere else.
