This is a fantastic hostel - one of the highlights of the trip. Unfortunately no kitchen, though. It is about 5min walk from the S bahn and only a 100m or so from the U bahn so though it is not in the centre of town, access is easy. The atmosphere is what sets the place apart. The staff are very friendly and sociable and this hostel is a very good choice for those traveling alone.
I was in Berlin for a congress at the Templedrome so it was very convenient as it was walking distance to it. The staff were very friendly and manned 24hrs so if you wanted a cup of tea at 4am, like I did, they happily obliged. The noise does carry in the corridors in the morning, but otherwise was relatively quiet. The hostel was very clean and had the feeling of being in a hotel. There was good wifi in the reception/lounge area but a bit sketchy in the room. It was a good experience!
Really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are big and no bunk beds! The breakfast in the neighbor restaurant is worth the price and the common area are is cozy. I arrived earlier and not felling so well and the staff was very nice with me, offering me some tea and also managed to allow me for check-in a little bit earlier, so I could rest.
can be noisy in the evening if u stay ion the ground floor, close to the bar. when i went to the bar myself, there was no one behind it so i could not order a drink. apart from that, it's good

Great spot. Best part is no bunk beds and large rooms. Excellent staff. Not much immediately nearby, but located on 2 u Bahn tracks. Helpful, friendly staff with cool library bar attached. No kitchen facilities I believe but an attached restaurant with good breakfast buffet for 6 euros. Would stay again.
Staff upon arrive took care of us the whole time.. It was a pleasant stay..
Only stayed 1 night but I was very impressed by this hostel, the guy on reception (think his name was Sebastian?) was fantastic. The room was amazing, bed was super comfy, bathrooms were excellent. Only small problem was WiFi in the room was very slow but worked fine downstairs. Overall, very happy!
I love this hostel. This hostel is very clean (which I care most!), nice decoration. No Bunk bed in mixed dorm, I like it! The staff are very nice. Apart from the fact that there is a bit noisy sound when you open your room door (coz it is in an old building), nothing I can pick on this hostel.
My main gripe about this hostel is that it lacks a kitchen and refrigerator, and I'm not sure if it's due to a fire safety regulation or just a way to encourage guests to spend at the restaurant. Other than that, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The reception was really helpful in pointing out the main sights in the city. This mega hostel feels more like a hotel.
I have worked as a concierge member in a prominent hotel where flexibility and finding solutions is a part of the job. The management directives re. Storing guest food in a fridge is so petty. Common sense people! Reviews and word of mouth are paramount to your business being successful!
The hostel has won several prizes but I personaly don't think it deserves them. The hostel managers are nice and the atmosphere is cozy. -There are no towel racks in the rooms or in the bathroom. -It is very annoying having to enter in the rooms with a code. Waking up at midnight and having to remember an access number or carry around the paper with the code is not practical. -The internet code they give you expires after a while ,not practical -There is no kitchen, and the bar is expensive
Fantastic hostel. The beds are very comfortable! Very good value for money.
This hostel really lacked atmosphere and the breakfast is quite expensive. However, the beds were quite comfortable and it was a lovely rouch to have a little welcome card on the pillow. Overall, prettty good hostel
The staff was amazing. Hands down the best group of staff I've come across on my trips across europe. The organized pub crawl is fun, get to hang out with the locals definitely recommended
The Hostel has a great location and the staff are great. Very clean hostel. I staying for 4 nights however on the last night was bitten by bed bugs. Which may have been brought in by another traveller so I will not mark down for that. In saying that, this hostels beds are the comfyiest I've stayed in. The atmosphere is great. Bathrooms are very clean however could have more privacy as the shower doors are only frosted glass! Could benefit from cubicles. Overall I would recommend this hostel.
The grand hostel is a nice hostel with comfortable beds and friendly staff. We had a good stay however the only downside was the rude, annoying and incredibly loud school groups staying at the hostel. They really need to be put on a seperate floor to normal guests. We were kept awake by them banging on walls and running around the halls/rooms. Very comfortable stay though with a cheap bar in the common area!
it was one of the cleanest hostels we stayed at. Very comfy beds and the atmosphere was great. super close to a metro station and great location.
Friendly staff. Since the breakfast was too expensive, I couldn't have it at he hostel. It is 3-4 minutes to the metro station. The internet connection should be better, when I was staying at the second floor, I had difficulties connecting to the Internet. In the first floor and reception floor it was good though. If I come to Berlin again, I'll stay at the hostel :)
Great staff very helpful, fantastic breakfast, only downside was the heavy room doors banging shut all night, due to thoughtless guests
It's a very nice hostel. It's far from the city centre but is very close to a metro station.
