Brilliant hostel in a great location! Couldn't believe the facilities we got for such great value! Great experience also staying on a canal boat, would highly recommend! Location wise it was easily accessible to the city centre and right beside the east side gallery of the Berlin Wall. We both enjoyed our stay... Didn't want to leave!

Such a great place to stay! right beside the east side gallery, had a bar on board and the loveliest staff members who even did our washing completely for us. Great value for money in a beautiful location, we wish we could have stayed longer. Very secure and comfortable rooms with lockers, very easy to meet people too. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone for a unique berlin experience. 10/10

we would definitely recommend this hostel. The staff was very friendly, helpful en knew everything about Berlin. When we mentioned we didn't sleep well because of our matras, they immediatly offered us a free breakfast. (this was the last day of our visit so there was no use in changing rooms).

We were only there one night and while it was cool sleeping on a boat the rooms were tiny and you have to pay €3 extra for a pillow and sheets and €6 extra for breakfast. It's overpriced in my opinion.

The hostel location is fine with Berlin Wall just outside. The room is really small and with poor ventilation. Moreover there is no luggage room, people have to put their luggages just opposite to the reception. Luggages are very easy to be taken away by somebody else. There is a lounge on the boat and also the boat is broadcasting world cup matches which is a highlight.

The boat is in the river spree which is a very good place for enjoying sunset and sunrise. However, the music in the bar was very noisy that it's very disturbing when i was staying in the 5 mixed dorm in the upper floor

Rooms are a bit small, but comfortable and very clean nonetheless. If you're on the second boat (Western Comfort) you will most likely have trouble connecting to the wifi, because of the metal in the boat. Nonetheless it was a great hostel!

We loved staying on the Hostelboat. At first we were a bit tentative--who ever heard of a hostel on a boat? But being water lovers and without many other options, as the Pokal final between Bayern and Dortmund was the same weekend, we chose the hostelboat and were pleasantly surprised. The staff is awesome and it is very easy to reach via S-Bahn or U-Bahn. We loved our stay and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Lounge was occupied by non hostel guest party and it was closed to us guests, other than that it was a cool experience to live on a boat for few days!

Exellent Crew! The shower of our first room smelled really bad, the one of our second room was quite normal. So the avarage-rating at the end. Couples should take the little more expensive room, because the normal double-bed-size on boats is pretty small and the rooms involve an extra loft bed, forcing the atmosphere down. After 5 day I really can recommend this boat and whole KREUZBERG! Alerta Antifascista!

We had a fantastic two nights at Eastern Comfort - the staff were so helpful and a good laugh, location was perfect for us and we didn't leave Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain for almost the whole stay as there is already enough to do there. So novel waking up to ducks and a view of the Spree in the morning and the rooms were only as small as you expect to get on a boat, and as there was plenty of room on the deck and inside the boat for chilling it really had all you need! Would definitely stay again.
