Perfect hostel. I also met my second half there and hope it could last. On a downside maybe there no need to change wifI password so often?

The best hostel I have ever stayed at. Everything from the staff to the rooms to the Wi-Fi is simply perfect. Immediately upon your arrival you will be offered a free drink (iced tea, coffee or beer). You get your own comfy bed instead of the usual double-bunk bed; makes you feel like you are home away from home. The common room has the coziest atmosphere imaginable: bookcases, armchairs, sofas, tables, and a bar. You will find yourself chilling there with other travellers well into the night.

Good hostel, and I fully recommend it as long as you don't mind being a little out-of-the-way in terms of Belin's ridiculous tram system. It'll take 3 transfers to get to the Brandenburg Gate and all that, but that's more Berlin's fault than the hostel's. Adorable hostel, though, with great atmosphere, great staff, and a cheap bar. All the rooms I saw were really nice, no bunks. And they've done away with keys in favor of passcodes on the doors, which is much more convenient than it sounds.

Everything is good. Additional breakfast worth the money. Only one little issue - bar did not work too late :)

Bustling hostel with friendly and helpful staff and close links to the metro station. Cool bar that's often busy. Recommended.

We stayed at the Grand Hostel Berlin for 4 nights. We spent the first night in the bar and met some really nice people and enjoyed the beer. Its about a 15minute walk to all the main tourist spots and about a 10 minute walk into the city, but if you prefer to use the metro, there is a station across the road! Really easy to get from Hauptbahnhof station just 15minutes on the M41 bus and only 2.70 each. The Hostel is really clean with comfortable beds and very safe. We would definately stay again

The best hostel ever I wish I could have used a kitchen though

It seems like a hotel, not a hostel. Rooms are really big and nice, bathroom clean and good shower! Very nice place, close to the metro station and helpful staff. Nice prices as well!

The staff came across as quite rude, though this very well could just be a culture barrier between American-German.

really nice hostel. definitely worth the money. the atmosphere was awesome, really easy to meet people and short train ride to some prettt sweet ride. Only issues were the "double bed room" was simply 2 singles push together so you end up falling between them and the shared showers werent private at all! maybe think about adding changing rooms onto the showers. other than that pretty sweet place.

I have just good things to say about my stay at grand hostel, the staff are very kind, good location, the place is clean and I really recommend the pubcrawl, for sure you'll have fun on it.

The reception was very nice with staff taking the time to make great suggestions for places to visit in Berlin and explaining where they were on the map. The bar and lounge area is a pretty and cozy space. The mixed gender room was nice and big, only complaints would be that the ensuite bathroom was not the cleanest and got very wet from showers, and that my phone kept disconnecting from the wifi and I couldn't get wifi in the room.

I'm still there and feeling fine. The hostel seems to be popular among US Americans who may appreciate the 19th century building with its high ceilings and stucco ornamentation. I notice that I have been charged extra for bedding. This may be due to a faint stain left on a sheet by my sitting there after riding a wet bicycle. I suspect that the stain will come out in the wash and could have been avoided had the dormitory had a chair as an alternative. The Wifi is very unstable.

The rooms are great. Only comment would be that you always have to pull the door shut, which is a bit of a security risk if not everyone in your room is aware. Wouldn't recommend their pub crawl, overpriced for what you get, and you will be able to find much cooler places by yourself/another crawl.

It's a nice place in a good location, it even has a bar in it. I would stay here again. There is a metro across the river and many bus stops close by as well. We walked to the city from here with ease. The showers were a little odd; there were 2 in the room but only one had a curtain around it (both fuzzy glass, not clear) and the shower is automated (no lever). I had to move to the other shower to dry off. That is my only complaint.

Hostel was great. A little difficult to spot at the begining. But once you see it you got it. I walked to most of the attractions near by. Takes around 30-40 mins. Hostels good as well. Enjoyed it. No double decker beds.
