Excellent kitchen facilities, easy to access City centre with two U-Bahn options close by, clean and spacious showers however there was only 1 for two rooms to share, clean rooms with lockers for valuables in them. Chill atmosphere at the hostel but it's easy to get to the party areas of Berlin from the hostel.


Hostel is clean and neat, kitchen is large and with all the stuff you need, supermarket nearby, common area is large and good for chilling, staff are friendly and helpful, S bahn was just 5-7 mins walk. Recommended though wifi was somehow doesn't work on my devices for the first 24 hours, it works just fine afterwards.


Nice hostel in Prenzlauer Berg close to U

They are adding a new securiry system, but our room was broken into. Luckily my belongings were locked away in a licker, but the gentleman in our room did have a a bag stolen. Always keep the windows closed and locked no matter where you stay. The area is quiet and the staff are very helpful. They have a kitchen available to cook in and the WiFi is good, once you are able to connect to it.


I don't understand why you have to pay and additional 3€ for linens? For the price it should be included. The woman is very friendly but the other staff less so. For a last minute booking it was ok. But I won't be retuning anytime soon.


The value is good for money and the hostel was nice. The location is good because you can choose between two metro stations and depending on where you're going that could be useful. Also the staff is very helpful and kind.


Staff are excellent which really helps atmosphere. Was impressed that they have an Xbox withfifa14 too! I will hopefully be back

Great hostel with great staff. Not in the best location but the metro station is a short work


A very relaxed place, not really a party one but good to chill out. Kind of far away from the city proper, but staff was friendly & the kitchen was nice as well.


Always fresh coffee for free and a full kitchen, has many many clean showers and large communal space to meet people. best value in central berlin. rent a bike for under 10euros a day and see everything from here as a base. lockers are tall and hold alot. Local good people working here, ready to help and keep the place safe and always open. better value area for shopping and dining. great stay all around. highly recommended!!! thanks to the lovely staff and good facilities. Guests age approx 20y


It is a nice hostel! Super close to two different metro/tram stations. I stay in the 10people dorm, it was full, but non of us has aby kind of troubles.


Good location ,also very quiet for sleeping,clean,fully equipped kitchen and friendly staff.


The staff was exceptionally friendly. They even let us pay later because we were having difficulties with credit cards and finding compatible ATMs. They only accept cash, which came as a shock to us. However, the hostel location was in a regular neighborhood in East Berlin, with lots of locals, and is very discreet. There isn't much to do around the hostel. you have to go into the city center for that. There is a market on Friday mornings nearby, which is nice.


The hostel is quite nice how ever doesn't look like the best deal. You have to pay +3 euro for bed linen if you don't cary your own. There is only one key for every room and that doesn't make it safe, e.g if you wan't to sleep you cant lock the door so other roommates won't wake you up. Our room door was damaged and many times found it open.. However the location was great especially if you have already visited berlin and want to see some not very central locations.


I stayed in a basic but comfortable 8-bed dorm in early summer. Even though it was very hot outside, the temperature inside was just fine. Everything very clean, the staff very nice and lots of space to meet other travelers. The free parking is a public spot close to the hostel. Wifi does not reach dorm, but very fast and stable in common area. Several S-Bahn stations, including Berlin Gesundbrunnen, in walking distance - perfect!

Great deal with nice full kitchen and good beds and best of all really clean bedding and sheets! It is in the real Berlin of the Prenzlauer Berg area and walking distance to Schoenhauser S train and U2. Many trams nearby too and corner store and bakery and tons of well priced full service restaurants close by. Renting a bike to explore northeast Berlin is a must and a very good value for the money all around. Highly recommended for a few days or more. Save and shop fabulous Berlin culture deals
