Shower is not good, I had to press it all the time.

Room was clean, bathrooms could have been cleaner, with bigger sinks, and more frequent emptying of garbage bins. Bar was alright, lacked atmosphere, staff were great though, cheap happy hour beer, and wifi only available in lobby (not in rooms). The location was great if you don't mind taking the S-bahn (metro) around town. Its a short walk to Alexanderplatz station and Hackescher Markt station.

The location is the best but the rest is quite average. It´s like any huge hostel. Staff doesn´t have time to suggest anything. Nina was an exception. Always look for her if you need something. The internet connection is horrible and it doesn´t work in the room. The bathrooms are really dirty, specially the showers. All in all, I would recommend it but don´t stay indoors and enjoy Berlin. It´s a beautiful city.

This hostel was AMAZING! The front counter staff were friendly and welcoming. The breakfast area was nicely furnished with a little cafe. The rooms were very clean and well furnished. (The only thing was the bathrooms were not located in the rooms). The entire hostel was clean and located in a FABULOUS location, just off the main road that leads up to the bradenburg gate.

The location is super amazing. Everything worth seeing in Berlin is in close proximity. The downside is that the wifi is only in the reception area but considering how much you pay for the room then it's a fair deal. Enjoyed my stay and will definitely be going back again next time I'm in Berlin.

Pros: Right across the street from Alexanderplatz; large rooms; very clean; nice staff; excelent atmosphere at the lobby bar and terraza every night (I stayed for four nights). Cons: No wifi in the dorms; wish they had shelves in the shower rooms (a bit hard to keep one´s clothes dry while showering).

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the bar was great. I really liked that you had to scan your key card three times to enter the rooms. It felt very safe. There aren't a ton of bars near the location, but it has really easy access to the metro and buses to TXL airport. I would definitely stay again.

Defiantly not worth the money. Rooms were dull and bathrooms unventilated. No one in the bar area in the evenings. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hostel is near the tourist sites but no where near the bars or night clubs

My very first hostel and one of the best! Had a very good week there. The room was clean, the bathrooms were clean, the staff was great. They have a bar inside, didn't bought anything but as far as I could see the prices were very good. Location is awesome, near to Alexanderplatz, near to Museum Island, near to market that closes only at midnight. Definitely a very good place to stay. Will stay again in my next trips to Berlin!

I like the location but the bathrooms where pretty bad.

Stayed almost two weeks + Very convenient location + Some of the staff were amazing, particularly the two shorter girls working the bar most evenings. - The wifi was awful. Couldn't connect from room, would need to work from common room and even then it would disconnect every 5/20/60 minutes asking you to accept the terms of service again. - One staff member, a very tall woman, was rude to me and another guest. She insulted my intelligence and said my reservations inconvenienced her.

The hostel location is great, it is clean and the receptionist was beautiful :). The disadvantages are that bathrooms and showers are located far from the rooms. Rooms are very small. You have to pay 2.5 euros for the sheets which costed 5 euros for a couple. Break fast is not included in the price. Paying the hostel+the tax+sheets+breakfasts makes the hostel expensive compared with other hostels.
