It's an old and tiny hostel which urgently needs a renovation. We chose it because we hadn't got another option. The price is extremly high according to the quality. There's only one bathroom, so you have to que always. We paid 142€ 3 nights (booked in last minute) and the second day we were asked for paying a kind of Berlin taxes. Of course, we didn't pay it because it wasn't specified in the receipt. In conclusion, if you have the chance, you should choose a better option to enjoy your trip.

We are lucky to have very nice guests. Thank you all for enjoying your stay in Comfy Corner! Unfortunately, it also happens that some people try to avoid paying for their stay and (being fairly aggressive) threaten the solo female of staff who gently reminded them to finalise the payment. Please be ensured - we do not support this type of behaviour - and these individuals are being processed by the corresponding administrative bodies accordingly. Comfy Corner is violence free and lies free zone!


Great stay. Very helpful friendly staff. Only one bathroom which was a problem when you are in a hurry in the morning to leave!


I had read the reviews about the single bathroom and thought it wouldn't be an issue. I was wrong. At this hostel you share a single bathroom with up to 20 people. There were multiple times where you had to wait over 40 minutes just to brush your teeth. Over than that everything else is great, but one bathroom among that many guests is a red flag.


Nice little place, one member of staff was great, a french guy, very helpful. The other employee was really unwelcoming & you felt bad for asking her a question. Best bed i've stayed in while i've travelled around europe 👍


Very good value for money

A bit far out, but a really cute little hostel that will make you feel welcome, with helpful staff. The kitchen facilities were a great help for anyone on a budget, as it saves eating food out! Would have been nice if they had secure lockers, like other hostels we have visited, however we had no problems.


Nice hostel, situated in leafy Berlin suburb. Perhaps a little bit out of centre, but a perfectly good place to base yourself in Berlin for a few days. One bathroom shared between all guests, is one negative point.

Thank you, for your nice review. Fair comment, all round. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Please be welcome back any time!


The Comfy Corner is a really great place. Other than the mix-up about the address, which is actually at 7a Dortmunderstrasse not whats written on hostelworld, it really is a nice place in a quiet but vibrant area of Berlin. Right by the park and some really good restaurants, a couple minutes walk to the u bahn and grocery stores, very practical. Rooms are very nice, single beds, but no lockers. The one wash room for 15 people isnt really smart, and got me in some dicey situations. Would repeat!

Thank you for your kind words and lovely review. I am grateful for your attempt to help clarify the address but please note, it really is DORTMUNDER STRASSE 9 (yes, number 9, not 7a) The buildings do look very similar, that is why we send all of you nice guests such a big email, with a description, directions and a special google map, to be sure you can find it! Remember Dortmunderstrasse 9 - right on the (comfy) corner above the best restaurant in Berlin! "Probier Mal" - follow our directions!


Comfy Little Corner is as comfy as promised. The two guys running the hostel in lieu of the owner seemed pretty nice, but they could be strict about the hostel rules at times, and only one of them really interacted with us at all. The atmosphere and the amenities were in general pretty good, but there's only one bathroom, which could be hard. The kitchen is small, but very serviceable, and there are local shops, plus breakfast ingredients at the hostel for a small fee if you want. We enjoyed it.

Thank you, for your appreciation. I hope we were not too strict. We do like to keep everyone safe and keep things running smoothly. Its always a fine balance between letting you get on with it and being there to help and advise when you need us. Glad you enjoyed your visit and thank you, for writing a nice review. Be welcome back, any time :)


It was a little confusing as to whether the staff were just guests at the hostel or whether they worked there, but despite that they were helpful and very nice to talk to! Berlin is very spread out so you will need to take the train from this hostel to get to most interesting places. Nice clean hostel though, how shower was excellent!

Thank you, for your review...sounds like our staff blended in pretty well...we are run by travellers, for travellers and aim to create a real 'home from home' atmosphere for us all. I hope everyone who plans to visit Berlin will take note: yes, it is BIG! wherever you are in the city, you will need transport to get to every other part. There is no single centre and no one place which can be close to everything! Luckily, this means the transport system is brilliant! Glad you enjoyed it :)


The staff is very helpful. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Thanks a lot, for reviewing... Short and sweet but to the point. Please, be welcome back any time; happy travels :)


Nice secluded location, closed off atmosphere, clean and cheap, but out of the way and ONLY ONE BATHROOM! We had to wait for an hour or more for the bathroom multiple times and could hear staff talking through the night.


There really is to many Rooms and Beds in this facility for only one Bathroom/WC. This was very inconvinient for us from time to time. I have stayed in many places with shared bathroom facilities, and while you occasionaly have to wait it is usually not a great concern, but here it was simply to many guests per bathroom. Other than this it was a decent simple hostel.


The girls from Staff were great, very atencious, but the guy there was not so kind with us.


- The single bedroom is located directly besides the kitchen and there's a little door between the two rooms. Unfortunately it's very noisy because of this plus you get smoke and smells in your room.. :-( - The doorbell should be turned off during the night.. some drunk people rang it at 5 a.m. :-(
