Big hostel but very clean. 7 bed dorm was huge and spacious! There is a bar downstairs good if you want to meet people. Right next to a train station which makes it easy to get all over the city. Not too much going on in the area right around the hostel, though.
Excellent staff and the dorms were the best that I've stayed in across Europe. The dorm rooms were luxury standard and having a single bed made it so comfortable and homely.
A great hostel! Everything from the staff, to the social area and the bedrooms, I can't find much fault in this hostel at all. The bar is very well priced and a great place to meet other people. The hostel does run a bar crawl also so if you're travelling alone like myself it's an easy way to meet people. On arrival the welcome drink was a touch of class which I haven't had from any other hostels. The staff were also very good when it came to directions and recommending things to see or do!
The staff was extraordinarily helpful, and made me feel very secure. I bonded well with the people in my room and we spent several days touring Berlin together, and I now keep in touch with them. The hostel is in a great location, I would highly recommend staying here. Having a kitchen or a fridge for guests would be great.

The best hostel I've ever been to. You have to type in a given password instead of an actual key so at first i was kind of concerned but you have a locker for each person, pretty big and you could put a lock as well so there was no problem. I have to give above excellent for the atmosphere. the bar at the lobby, the staffs, everything was perfect!

Such a nice place to stay in, amazing facilities, friendly staff.
Good safe hostel. A nice bar and reception area. Doors operated on a code instead of a key. Staff were friendly, especially the barman who organized a beer tasting night, and one receptionist with a penchant for margaritas. Could have done with aircon in the summer, but it was a friendly clean hostel in a reasonable location.
The staff was super friendly and helpful!!! I loved the atmosphere, I travel along and I felt very safe and welcome! The only thing was that the bathrooms could be a little cleaner! ☺
Place was awesome. Best hostel so far. Did a beer crawl where I meet like 20 others from the hostel. Went to a bunch of bars. Staff is on point, super friendly and the bar tender was pretty hot. Location is not bad, 10 minute walk or just rent a bike from them. I marked down facilities not necessarily because I didn't get a private bathroom, but because the damn showers are motion censored. So you cannot turn them off until you fully step out. Other than that, can't wait to go back.
Best hostel of my trip. Loved staying the Grand. The staff were awesome, the lobby bar has a great atmosphere, there's plenty to do, great breakfast, and made some good friends whilst staying there.
This hostel is great!! One of the best hostel I have stayed in Europe. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, they will tell you all the places you have and can visit! The room gets clean every morning and bar and common area is very chill! I would definitely recommend this hostel to people!!
Nice hostel, lovely to be greeted by a 'welcome beer'. Nice room, with very comfy beds. Showers were a little on the naff side, but definitely not terrible. The room did get very hot as the weather was cracking, could have done with a fan at least
The welcome was super :) Getting a drink at your arrival when it's soooo hot, just what I needed to cool down. :) The staff is very friendly and had some nice tips to hang out in Berlin. It was really fun and want to thank them again for the nice time I've head over there. I've just 1 tip: "Try some clove with some water and lemon to get rid of the wasps..." (It helps for me in Belgium)
The hostel is clean, the beds well made everyday, the baths and toilets are also clean. The wifi works well too. The small thing is that it is right next to the train lines so unless u close the double window u can hear the trains passing thru.
Loved my stay here. Great staff & brilliant atmosphere.
Very nice hostel, very clean, friendly staff and the dorm had big comfortable beds! (you don't see that often)

I really enjoy staying at Grand Hostel Berlin. The atmosphere is quite nice, the bedrooms are very big and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms were always cleaned and the staffs are very gentil.
Incredible hostel, one of the best I've ever been too. Amazing staff, Annika, in particular. Greeted with a beer on arrival and a sit down with some suggestions and a map of where to go!! Great atmosphere and clean as anywhere. Close to metro and places to eat. Only cons are no lift, 6 flights of stairs to the top floor and communal toilets and showers. 10/10 would stay again.
The hostel had excellent facilities, very modern and clean, BUT my room was overbooked 1 night and an extra bed was put in. This made it very cramped and especially disappointing since I paid for a four bed dorm and got a five! Also, there was no privacy in the shower room and nowhere to hang things up. Hooks around the rooms and more in the bathrooms would be useful.
