Staff were all very friendly. Welcome chat was excellent. Large storage lockers and NO BUNK BEDS are huge plus. Only downside is fellow backpackers seem to not know how to soak up water after flooding the bathroom which is of course no fault of the staff. Very social hostel. Close to train station, checkpoint Charlie, topography of terror which is excellent. Roughly 30 min walk from Brandenburg gate.

Fabulous hostel and would return. Slight annoyance with the barman who seemed more interested in chatting to women than serving and made a rude comment also

Really nice hostel. It was quite a lovely place to come home to after being out in the snow all day. The shower was amazing. It was really like a hotel in a lot of ways. They have a nice bar inside with some pretty decent deals, but don't forget to get out of the hostel and see some real bars!

The best hostel I've ever stayed in by far! Amazing location, the most super friendliest staff, and just all around best vibes. The only not very significant critique would be the showers arent very private which can cause some discomfort. But everything else about this hostel rules! The staff are super friendly and also so happy to help in any way whether with directions somewhere or advice about cool places to go. They also give you a free drink upon your arrival! Swoon.

Luxury hostel feel in the room (no bunks and very comfy bedding) but also fun hostel vibe in the bar and common area. Location perfect right on one of the major ubahn lines. Great if you're travelling alone as staff were really friendly and helpful. Especially guys behind the bar. They ran a great beer tasting! Perfect for meeting other travellers too. The only minor issue was that I booked for 5 nights and I had to move rooms after the first night. It was very easy though. Would stay again!

Everything about this hostel is top class! The most wonderful and helpful staff I've ever encountered in a hostel. There was always am ember of staff on hand to answer any questions or give advice about where to go in berlin. The bar is very cool and comfortable and the building is beautiful. The location is perfect for seeing Berlin, situated in Kreuzberg but within walking distance of the main tourist attractions. I would recommend anyone to stay here when visiting Berlin! We'll be back :)

Felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Good wifi connection. There is a €3,60 separate charge for the bedsheets. I guess its their way of making money off people booking things in a hurry and not reading all the the terms and conditions. Thats my biggest complaint because I ended up paying €15 a night instead of the €11 that I was expecting.

Fantastic stay here! Stagf were fantastic, hostel is just amazing for the price. Only downside was no kitchen, but you're so close to cheap and amazing food this really isn't that much of an issue. Would definitely stay here again :)

Absolutely loved my stay at the Grand Hostel. The staff were amazing-- super helpful, friendly, welcoming and shared their knowledge of Berlin. Location is absolutely perfect, right off the Tempelhof Ubahn stop. Just minutes away from all the historical sites and surrounded by great food.

The dorm rooms do not have bunkbeds, only single beds. That should give you an idea how awesome this place is. Staff were super-friendly, and it's been a pleasure staying here.

The Grand Hostel Berlin just may be the best hostel in the world. They couldn't get rid of me there; I stayed for 2 weeks by myself. The rooms are the best I've ever stayed in at a hostel and there's a really awesome bar and common room. I met tons of amazing people and I think I actually made some life-long overseas connections and friends. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone travelling through Berlin. There's also free condoms at the front desk if you're feeling a little frisky.

Good Timez

Can't recommend highly enough. Facilities are very clean and safe with combinations for the doors and safes for you to put valuables in as well as cabinets inside the rooms. Easy access to metro system. Every member of the staff is very helpful and seemingly just wants you to have a good time. Organized activities including a German lesson and pub crawl should be taken advantage of. The lounge area is great for meeting people too.

Fantastisch

The atmosphere in the Grand Hostel Berlin is completely lacking, the bar man who was working the nights I stayed there tried his best but it wasn't happening. The internet is useless unless you are down stairs in the bar area and every time you leave you have to log in again. I also had a black stain on my bed linen.

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?
