Stayed here for 3 nights(Friday-Sunday) whilst Inter-Railing through Europe with my girlfriend. We booked the private double room with shared bathroom. We found the hotel to be clean, safe and secure and the staff very friendly. Has great links to the S and U Bahns. We thorougly enjoyed our time in Berlin and this hostel had a large part to play in us doing so. I would recommend this hostel for both travelling couples and large groups of friends, has a great cheap bar too!!!

This hostel made me feel comfortable at once: I was offered a beverage of my choice upon arrival, offered free WiFi and was happy to wait in a classy library styled lounge. The rooms have a ritzy hotel feel to them that made me want to stay indoors all day and read instead of staying out all day. I was always happy to return to this hostel. I'm pretty impressed and will come back for sure.

Only stayed for one night but the room was very comfortable and clean. The room could have done with some colour but that is just a suggestion not a complaint. The staff were great! Very friendly, especially a very charming man on the bar who suggested some places for us to visit in Berlin. The hostel also had some beautiful lillies in the reception area, which was a really nice touch. I would stay here again.

Very nice hostel. Much more like a hotel. They had events, but the place didn't seem super social as a whole. Location is a bit out of the way from central areas (Mitte, Kreuzberg, etc.) but it's nice and quiet with easy access to the metro.

Hey, Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that you were not so happy about the location. Actually Berlin is a huge city and we are 10 minutes walking distance from the central part. But still great that you enjoyed your stay! ;) Your Grand Hostel Team

Best layover ever!. Grand for sure...High style and ceilings in a beautifully well preserved pre WWI heritage building. The staff are gracious and knowledgeable. Jerome, Christian and Daniel man the city insiders infos, events, bike tours and club outings that start at the onsite library and bar. U1 and U7 are a 2 min walk. Beds super comfy, new w quality linens always immaculate. Highly advised when coming to Berlin! Ask for the metro and underground all day discount pass. A must stay destinati

Great security and staff were wonderful and happy to help. Little far away from the centre of Berlin, but perfect for when we went for May Day as it was on the U1 line. Not much of a communal area though so the atmosphere felt more like a hotel than a hostel.

I'm 32 and went to Berlin on my own for a couple days. This hostel helped make it a great trip. It was very easy to get to since two metro stations were a block or so away. The neighborhood seemed very safe and there were key pad entries at the front door, each floor and my room. The staff was super helpful and the hostel also organized activities. There were friendly people there from all over and most were in their mid-twenties. They have their own bar.* Clean* Multiple Bathrooms* Great Value*

It was my first time in a hostel, and I loved it! I stayed in a 5-bed shared bedroom, which was very good to get to know people. There was a nice atmosphere, the living room was very cozy and there I met a lot of people whom I hung out with. I had the best time!

Only stayed one night so can't say too much about the place but the bed was comfortable and the hostel was clean. The staff were friendly too.

Extremely knowledgeable and personable staff including housekeeping. Great location by metro and about 15 min walk to the major sites. Breakfast purchase @ $6E was value for money. Daniel conducts the bike tour and is excellent. I only wish it was offered more than once a wk.

The hostel was excelente. I booked a room just for two and it was like staying in a hotel. Clean, spacious, comfy, you dont hear the nois from the outside and they even left a bottle of water and some candies for us. The location is ok. Really close to the metro station and no far from the main atractions. Staff was awsome. I really recomended it.

The best hostel I have ever stayed at! For more or less the same price as any hostel in a big city, you get a much nicer experience. Welcome drinks, an elaborate introduction to the city map and its distinct areas, comfortable beds, clean white sheets, well-maintained rooms/hallways/bathrooms, and of course really great reception area and bar/library. I highly recommend Grand Hostel Berlin!! Would absolutely stay there again.

We had no problems with security or cleanliness- all of this was great for the price! The people at the front desk were welcoming and helpful and the atmosphere in the front lobby is great. There's a nice little library bar where you can hangout and have a drink. There are tons of activities going on every day that the hostel guides and gives discounted prices. There is wi-fi throughout the whole building and everything felt clean, nice and safe. Location 15 min walk from center nice area.
