Good Hostel, centrally located and reasonably priced. Breakfast was a bit expensive and there was no kitchen. Spacious rooms and good bathrooms.


Really good location,


I loved Citystay Mitte in Berlin. The location was very central. When I arrived there were huge groups coming in, but they separated us so there was only two people in a 6 or 8-bed hostel room which I LOVED. My bathroom was very clean--this may depend on the people there--and they have an amazing hot chocolate that you can order at the bar. For me, noise was low at night. One con--the wifi only worked in the lobby and not in your room, so not a great place to be if you need to plan things.


Good location, close to many eating areas and shopping centres. great 5.50E breakfast. Could do with some more cooking facilities or a fridge for guests. Very secure. Cheap bar specials large communal area.


Hostel and room was very clean, we had a private double room and there was lots of space, more than I've had in other hostels. However the ways were paper thin and we didn't get a very good nights sleep any of the nights we were there. Our room looked onto the courtyard where people could drink which mean that we couldn't go to sleep until they left for the night. Although this is part and parcel with choosing the stay in a hostel and isn't the hostels fault. Bathrooms were mostly clean.

Nice bar in the hostel. Party atmosphere and met a lot of cool people. Great social experience. My room smelled awful but I think that had more to do with the guests than the cleanliness of the hostel. Would definitely go back.


Fantastic position, facilities outdated but well set out


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.


Value for money. Good Location, staff and awesome atmosphere. Good and clean rooms. WiFi only in bar and reception areas, this could be improved. Rooms need WiFi too!


Staff Friendly, excelente Location! Breakfast not included.


Petty good hostel. Showers were really bad. You have to hold them with one hand to make them work. Nice big rooms good location.


great hostel!the only bad thing is that you have to pay for breakfast and the wifi doesnt work inthe rooms.


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

Hello, thanks for your rating. sorry that you did not enjoy yourself in berlin mitte. the rooms you booked had both 4 m high ceilings large windows/ balcony. all bathrooms have central ventilation of course. see you next time martin


Soundproof was very poor...You could hear people snoring in the next room or walking in the corridor.
