I can understand why this hostel has received so many awards. Fantastic place to stay at: the staff is kind and multilingual. The bar is a very good place to meet other travelers and the bartender joined the conversations, which was really nice. I have stayed in both 6 bed dorms and 3 bed dorms (with my own balcony!!), and I felt very comfortable in both rooms. The only downside was that the 3 bed dorms didn't have its own bathroom. The shared bathroom didn't allow much privacy.
I can't deny it's a good hostel, rooms are big and clean, breakfast (paid) is good, but it was not what I was looking for. I found this place really boring!!! There was a nice bar downstairs and it was always empty -maybe because the happy hour was at 4 pm?
Very nice stay, lovely and helpfull staff and plenty of good atmosphere

Best hostel we ever stayed in! Definitely coming back :)
abosolutly brilliant exelent service really enjoyed it.
The rooms are huge, clean and full of character. Lockers were as big as wardrobes, so plenty of space. The bar is good way to talk to people but isn't too rowdy. We even got a free drink on arrival! Would definitely recommend this hostel for anyone staying in Berlin.
The staff is super friendly, rooms are clean and have lots of room. It's a great location for seeing Kreuzberg and easy to get around the city. There are bikes you can rent from reception which is great! The only downside was that it is not very social compared to some other hostels I have stayed in - people in the bar were more likely to be on their phones than chatting. I was there mid-week which could have contributed to this.
It's a great place to stay, don't even think of going anywhere else. The beds are so comfy! The bar area is great for meeting fellow travellers in the evening. The staff are so friendly and helpful! They give real insider advice on where was best to see and eat, how much things cost etc. The wifi works in all the rooms and the facilities are super clean.
Great hostel. Room was excellent, showers and bathrooms were great, and right next to the metro so pretty easy to get around. Only problem I had was the room I was in was just out of WiFi reach so no internet in the room. Had to stand in the hallway or stairwell to get internet.
On arriving here (the first time I'd ever traveled; first hostel) I was made immediately welcome and felt excited to be there. The staff are utterly fantastic, they will bend over backwards to make sure not only feel comfortable but that you also have a great time. This place is THE place to come if you are on your own; I couldn't fault it at all. Also Ben's bike tour of the city was the most sensible 10 euros I spent the whole trip. Thank you guys, seriously!
Hands down the best hostel I have stayed in.
The staff were awesome, kind, friendly and helpful! The rooms were also very clean and there were no bunk beds which was a nice change of scene! I used mostly public transit to get around which took no time at all. My only concern is that on the top floor there was no internet connection. Other than that I had a lovely stay here and would definitely stay at this hostel again.
Reception was wonderful; they sat me down, gave me a map and marked out all the important places they recommended depending on the duration of your stay in Berlin. They've got a pretty value-for-money breakfast at Grand Ma's next door. Great place to bond with travellers, the hostel organises bike tours and pasta wednesdays. Best of all there were no bunk beds ! Rooms were really big and spacious with sufficient power points. Showers were okay, there was hot water :D 5 mins walk from station
Very kind and willing to help staff. The hostel is absolutely beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Though I liked the bike tour with Max he definitely needs to know more about the history of Berlin and you NEED to set clear that is NOT a tour that explains about the city sights.

cool old building. location is in a pretty central part of kreuzberg near lots of transit, good since berlin is a pretty spread out city. bathrooms weren't terrible, but left something to be desired. really liked that the rooms were large, had luggage lockers, and no bunk beds!
Excellent hostel, very clean, friendly staff. Great location.
Grand Hostel was a great place to stay! The staff were so friendly and were willing to help us with anything we needed. It was more like a hotel than a hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were so clean and an overall fabulous place to stay. The metro station was a one minute walk away which made getting around very easy!
The stay was absolutely fantastic. The only thing I would day could be improved are the doors, which are self closing and bang very loud when they close.
It was the best hostel ever. The staff is really friendly. They will help you with anything. :)
