The staff was great. They had s lot of small fees: towels, locks that other hostels I've stayed out do not. But I understand why. The door to the second floor wouldn't close so it was one less door between my bags and a thief but I wasn't worried. Overall it was one of the best I've stayed in.

The amazing thing is that there was one guy I have seen settling everything for us! Well, even so he worked like a team! He was smiley and friendly. He gave us decent breakfast especially for the budget. The down side is that the toilet was a little bit smelly... the kind of smell when you have wet rug for long time and it starts to smell. Also, I was in 3 beds private room with 2 fellas. And one of the beds was too close to the toilet. Better to Gove it more distance ;)

Sometimes it is dangerous if a female is arranged in a mixed room with all the other males.

One of the best hostel in Berlin : great staff, spacious, clean and comfortable rooms, a very nice lounge bar where you can meet people or just feel like in your own living room. I've stayed there many times because I come regularly in Berlin ( my favourite city:) and I will definitely stay there again!

Great hostel, only complaints are it could be closer to the center, but it wasn't an issue in the end.

This was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. To start off the shower didn't drain one bit aka after 1 min u were standing in several inches of water and who know what. That was only the start of a very bad night. I picked a 7 person room, I am a girl traveling all alone. I did not expect to be put in a room with a group of 6 guys who had all booked together. They turned out to be worst people you would ever want to stay with and the staff did nothing about it, even after I asked them to.

Great hostel - believe the hype. No problems - except the showers are a little small and lack privacy.

Security, location (Kreuzberg) and cleanliness were perfect without doubt. But the atmosphere and staff were not as amazing as the description. The breakfast was very average, too expensive for 6 euro in my opinion. The bathroom is quite far away from the room I was staying. Showers are really good! It's always clean and with warm water! It's really pleasant for a tried traveller.

One of the best hostel I have ever been, facilities are awesome, rooms are big and with confortable beds, bathrooms are also big and clean, the lounge area and the bar are very nice and with a very good atmosphere to meet people, the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is not in the city center but not far either, anyway there are lot of transport options just a few minutes walk.

This hostel is by far the best I've ever seen. The staff was amazing going out of their way to help you. I felt like in a big hotel but for the price of a cheap hostel. Would totally recommand this place!

Best hostel I've been in my life. Period. Their strength: Incredible customer service! And everything else is good as well. I definitely recommend anyone wanting to discover Berlin to book this hostel! You will not regret it. They deserve every single prize the hostel has won throughout the years.

Nice building and rooms. Staff was nice and helpful. BUT IR Sensors at showers were pretty annoying and there was not much space to put your things while having your shower. Still a recommendation to stay there.
