We received a twin room on Eastern Comfort, but got a tiny double cabin on Western Comfort without sheets included. The information on which boat you reserve is important, but wasnt given at the online reservation. Otherwise you sleep on a boat, which is cool, you can not argue with that, modern heating in every cabin, right next to a famouse berlin wall section, next to Kreuzberg - worth a night. :) the girl at the front desk was nice and helpful, her boss was less nice.

First, this is a BOAT hostel. Yes will all rocking, small quarters, and crappy lighting. I'm not normally too critical, in general, but this hostel was terrible. First time I was charged for sheets, was given wrong directions on two occasions to the same place (took over 45mins, and got lost for over 2 hours due to bad directions), lighting is bad, no hostel community (no communal area for meeting other people), bad service, hard to mention anything good actually besides the location was decent.

thx for your candid remarks. we take all reviews seriously, & make changes & improvements to reflect customer feedback;thx for lighting comment! the charge for sheets&towels is clearly noted on our & all agent websites. as for horrible service, i absolutely disagree & stand behind all of the crew. we have a very high customer service standard; over 95% of our guests agree!! sorry for you, that it was such a horrible experience but why didn't you say anything while here? mang't/kirsten

Very nice hostel and staff was very friendly. I wouldn't recomend it as a hostel for meeting people though.

Great experience, staff are the best. Beautiful view when you wake up in the morning, lovely to be able to just chill in the deck. Would be great if they had a working iron for after you've washed your clothes. Find 5 Euro to borrow linen even for one night way to steep. 5 bed dorm was very small but it is a boat. Bunks are very low and don't have ladders, have to kind of jump and pull yourself up and over the top bunk. Great location, overall good experience, would recommend.

Nice hostel in a good location. Easy to find and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Has everything you need for a hostel, and provides sheets and towels free of charge. Comfortable beds if you don't mind a gentle sway. The only real downside is the number of shower and bathrooms. It's just slightly too few in the mornings, but this is a boat so you can't really expect it to have too much. Overall a nice hostel and I'd stay there again.

It`s a boat! The novelty is great and the view out the window was beautiful. It was small and very cosy but the place was clean, quite quiet and there is weird music in the bathroom. I went for the novelty of staying on a boat and I might stay there again just for the beautiful view and great location. I`d try it for one night, maybe two but maybe not longer than that.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped us with directions and were always available. Great location as bars and clubs were within walking distance. We stayed in private room, so we had our own bathroom which was a decent size, The only issue was that the room was pretty cold and there was no heating, but the staff were kind enough to give us extra blankets. However, heating would have been nice. A really friendly, safe and calm atmosphere. Thanks

Staff was awesome, everything seemed fairly clean. It was about a 10 min walk to the train. It's a hostel on a boat which is pretty cool! I would definitely stay here again

The staff were really helpful and the location of the boat was ideal. The room sizes were quite small but as we didn't spend much time in it this wasn't an issue. The bar above the boat had a great atmosphere and was very well priced for the location.

A cool place to stay if you want to experience sth. different from the regular low-budget hotel rooms. I had a nice and clear room with a double bed and a private bath. All staff was very friendly. There was no room for storing luggage before check-in / after check-out but they lock my laptop. There was a private party in the lounge above my room until 3 p.m. which was very loud (earplugs were no help). An email about possible noise was sent late the night before which I had not time to read.

Really enjoyed our short stay here. The location was excellent and we felt right at home when we got there. We were also given some great recommendations by staff and liked the relaxed atmosphere.

I had a great time at the Eastern Comfort Hostelboat Berin. I really loved the place: stylish&funny. The blonde lady at reception is the best receptionist ever: nice, very very helpful, smiling all the time. Superb location with great view, fantastic music and perfect mojitos :)

Excellent position, very nice people at the reception. If you are searching for a quiet hostel is not for you. Honestly the toilette could be cleaner but perfection is not from this world.

Easy to find getting there, struggled to get into the centre during our stay. Staff lovely and more than helpful. Location on the river is nice!

The room is exactly like you'd expect on a boat. The room was clean but small and the the top bunk was tiny. The shower was very small and the floor got soaked whenever you had a shower, and there was no drain system so the floor was always wet. Otherwise the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great if you want to go to clubs such as water gate.
