Great location in Berlin. Secure hostel. Downfalls were probably the cleanliness of the hostel, bathrooms and showers were mediocre. Wifi only worked in the main foyer which was a let down.

Be careful with your belongings whilst in the lobby! There were pickpockets coming in from the street and grabbing phones and wallets.

The walls in the rooms are clearly not sound proof. Got woken up multiple times by loud noise in nearby rooms at early hours in the morning. The wifi is not available in rooms which meant the small communal area in the lobby where the wifi worked was often over crowded as it also hosted a bar and a restaurant. The shower was unhygienic also.

Very average compared to others in Europe, considering it's not cheap (& in cash). Wifi didn't work in rooms, hardly worked down in the lobby. Painful to use. Showers were push button ones, turned off every 30 seconds. Beds uncomfortable & no sink like most hostels. Staff wouldn't let us sit in the courtyard to drink after 10pm. Only good things would be breakfast & that you can pay 5 euro to get washing done (although the bag they give you is hardly a full load of washing) & spacious rooms.

One of the best hostels ever!!! I really recommend!! It's a big hostel, the only thing that should have a kitchen to use. By the way it is cheap and wonderful!! :)

Close to all the sites. Rooms were secure and clean. Majority of staff were really friendly. Had one man at reception who seemed cranky and felt like he didnt want to help. Would definantly stay here again if ins ever in Berlin again!

The location of this hostel is very good, close to the centre. The breakfast is a bit expensive unless you make lunch out of it too. The wifi doesn't work in the rooms and struggles in the common areas. Everything was clean and the key card acces is very safe

I was a little disappointed with wifi as it was mostly too slow to function but all in all we were quite satisfied.

The location was great but.... No wifi in the room, and wifi only available (poor connection) in a tiny section of the common area. This meant most of the people down there had their heads down in their phones. Really very little atmosphere and the wifi situation was the worst I've had in my whole Europe trip!

Absolutely fantastic location and a really enjoyable stay.

This hostel is located in a good area, close to attractions. The building is also quite secure. The bar downstairs is a great place to hang out in the evening. The wifi worked pretty well in the lobby area. The breakfast was not good and I would save your money and get something elsewhere. The rooms are huge, but if you face the small quad area, it is noisy in the mornings.

Location was great, people were friendly. The bathrooms were some of the less glamourous I´ve come across, but they are still okay.

Great hostel, friendly staff and location. The early noise restriction in the courtyard is a great idea, but not very strictly enforced!

I stayed one night in a 4-bed dorm on level 1. The room was huge and even included a table, two chairs and a small balcony. The wifi signal was strong and (from memory) the floor was quiet. There is an elevator (always a plus) and a large courtyard though this closes around 10pm. The toilets and showers were filthy and definitely need more consistent cleaning or to be updated altogether.

Good location right near the tv tower. We had our own room which was nice and used shared bathroom. Showers didn't look very clean and not many shared toilets. Staff weren't overly helpful. You had to ask a lot of questions to get info out of them.

Hostel was fairly close to the main sights. The staff were very friendly and more than willing to help out with anything you need. Wifi only in the lobby and it's not to crash hot when there are heaps of people on it. Best times to use it is late at night or early mornings. Will stay again!
