Welcoming and friendly staff. Good kitchen with enough storage space and utensils. Very good price for the location. Showers were hot and clean. Would definitely stay again.

Good location, walkable to all sights. Friendly staff. Everything looks industrial, but in a kind of cool way. All clean and well-maintained. Bigger than average rooms.

BED BUGS! First morning: woke up with a few strange bites. Second morning at 4:00 am, I woke up covered in 50-80 bites from face to toes. I looked awful for my trip and was in tears from how badly they itched. Once the swelling went down they were in the telltale "designs" that bed bugs make (clusters, lines, etc.). The staff said it hadn't happened before and they could only apologize and look into it. They never followed up with me or offered a refund, and now I'm worried they're in my home.

Internet sucks, too MANY censorship... EVEN I tried to get in Center for Disease Control to find update for Ebola virus in Africa and was blocked!!! Their computer treats you like your 6 years old. The lights in the hallway turn on when one walk through but turn off maybe 5 seconds later, its VERY annoying. I was not happy when found out that my credit card is not accepted for any charges under 20 Euro, made me go to bank and withdraw CASH FROM ATM!

Good hostel. Basic but enough for a short stay. No intimacy in dorms, and quite noisy (as every hostel...). The plus, two computers with free internet.

I stayed there for 5 days. It was the first days of autum, so the weather was a bit cold. I could only have a decent shower once. The other times, the water was very cold, no mather what time of the day was it. The staff and the other things were ok, but I can´t rate better than this if you people don´t have hot water.

Location is ok, a few stops on the metro from main town and near some attractions, but not a lot of restaurants closeby. We had no key to our room, so had to wait for staff to open it every time. No hot water, and no wifi for two of the three nights we stayed. Loud hallways right outside the rooms. Six showers total on our whole floor for upwards of 50 people.

1. No prior warning of heavy road construction starting at 6am. As a result: 2. No hot water. 3. No WIFI. 4. Lost electricity for 8 hours. 5. No mention of lost electricity, resulting in food spoilage. I ate said food. 6. When I requested a partial refund I was told to leave immediately (11.45pm) and had the police called on me. 7. Left in the morning. Will never EVER go back. I was one of many who was refunded and checked-out of the check-in.

If you would like to enjoy an authentic nazi experience then come over to Check-hostel! The staff are incredibly rude and deceitful with the Manager telling anyone who asks about the showers (which are usually cold) that there is either no problem or that he is already dealing with the Problem. kitchens dirty. wifi cuts off all the time. But a good Location in terms of centrality.

I commented Poor for the Location of Check-In Hostel because I needed to walk about 15 minutes from the nearest U-Bahn station named Kochstr for the first time, with my luggage of 20 kg. For the other reviews, they are all OK.

Pretty good location, near Check Point Charly. Nice and helpful staff. The mattress was quite unconfortable, too thin and soft. Internet only worked properly at reception.

this hostel is very central but it is definetly not for the faint hearted. the facilities were most of the time dirty, the bathroom lights would turn of evvery couple of seconds (quite annoying), the rooms carpet wasnt veery clean, the wifi didnt work well at all and the staff was half helpful and friendly but with a couplle of very unhelpful staff members. still, it was ccheap for the location.
