One of the worse hostels we've stayed in! Showers flooded and just all around unclean, kitchen looked like it had never been taken care of and we had food stolen, and who knows what was on the floors of our rooms (that's right multiple rooms). About the only thing going for it is location, right by checkpoint Charlie.

This hostel was a very good choice. Only 2 negative things that i experienced: 1) The WiFi didn't work properly 2) The administrator confused me a lot. I asked about the bus lines to Tegel airport (actually, I just wanted to ensure that they start from 5 am in the morning). He recommended me a U-bahn (that doesnt go there at all) and said so confusing things. I think he should me more informed about this. There are certain lines (TXL, X9 etc.) that go there directly from the centre.

Good location, very central only bad thing is that the showers don't drain properly and overflow.

It's a five minute walk from a metro stop, which was pretty nice. There isn't a whole lot to do in the immediate vicinity (mostly just Checkpoint Charlie). Having a locker in the room was nice. The showers aren't the greatest, but certainly manageable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a bit noisy, but that's not too unusual. Overall, it's a solid hostel with a very reasonable price. I definitely recommend it!

GOOD: beds were comfortable, location was excellent within easy walking distance to the main attractions. BAD: Staff - they were hot and cold, one moment they were friendly the next moment they were rude and unpleasant. The showers: temperature unstable and changing, floor always flooded with water. Cleanliness/maintenance - this hostel needs an upgrade many items broken, damaged or ineffective. Overall, not the worst hostel but I am certain there are better and cheaper hostels in Berlin.

Not a good place for a solo traveler. Quite sketchy at night to walk back from public transportation. Right near checkpoint Charlie.

The best location! You're only about 5 minutes walk from check point charlie and a ubahn station to take you everywhere. Also there is a market right around the corner and lots of cafes that are close. The staff at the front desk was very helpful. You could purchase toiletries and adapters at the front desk. Kitchen with storage for your food and pots and pans. The place was overall clean and the atmosphere was great, not too loud. If you're looking for a central location pick Check-In Hostel!

Everything is good, but laundry service was terrible. Staff told me it's EUR5/5kg but when I wanted to, it's EUR10 even though it wasn't even 5kg. Reason was they cant fit all my clothes into their washing machine. They used a small plastic bag to gauge if the clothes fit but the bags were so pathetically small and no way it can fit 5kg. I had to do the laundry because we were in a rush so we paid for it but the result? The clothes still dirty with all the dirts & hairs all over my cloths.

Relatively clean hostel and clean and comfortable rooms. Showers flooded a bit, but it wasn't anything too dampening or serious. Wifi was a bit spotty at times, but overall a nice place to stay :)

That's just what it is, a place to check in and leave again. It's all okay but not really pleasant to hang around at. And the street is extremely noisy in the night, bring your ear plugs.

Let's see...the bathrooms/showers were pretty bad as they didn't drain at all. The kitchen was "clean up after yourself" but not many people followed it. However the hostel was very big and they had a nice common room. They have lockers, but you have to bring your own lock and the staff was super helpful. The hostel is also close to some major metro and bus stops. We had no problem getting anywhere. I would definitely come back to this hostel.

Especially clean and modern-looking. Good lounge/game room area, as well as a dedicated room for storing luggage. The showers were HOT and powerful which was a big plus! Wifi is relatively fast but requires a Facebook check-in every few hours, which is a bit of a pain. Located on the second floor with no elevator, and three blocks walk from the U-Bahn station - luckily the neighbourhood itself is central and seems safe. Can get a little noisy at night. Overall good to excellent rating.

Great location and excellent value for money. However, the kitchen wasn't very clean and not all of the hobs/ovens worked but would definitely recommend the hostel.

It is a pretty nice hostel. There are 2 computers for free internet access which is cool! There are many rooms for showering but the showers need to be fixed. The toilets are great! Nice and Clean! The kitchen is dirty honestly. I think not because of the hostel itself but the guests. Someone does not clean the dish just leave it in the sink then others will follow. The staffs are helpful but never give a smile to me and are not that welcoming :(
