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.
Best Hostel I have ever stayed at! The friendliest staff around.
Really enjoyed my stay here. All of the staff were fantastic! Friendy, helpful and respectful. This would be my number one choice should I come back to Berlin.
Nice classic house at three metro stations from Brandenburg tor, all is so clean, the staaf is so kind, they offer some facilities for a good price as bikes, public transport cards and breakfast, this last one is not included even if you rent a individual room this is a pity... and they don't have kitchen service and no fridge is avalaible for eventual use, they offer free Wifi for free and one pc is avalaible at the metting room, in general terms is a good election to be at this wonderful city.
One of the best hostels I've been to, the staff were super helpful and the rooms were very modern and comfortable. Location is not bad either.
I would stay here again and I recomend it to anyone traveling on a budget but who still values comfort.

Really nice hostel. Lovely and cosy in the winter time. Staff are knoeledgeable, helpful and courteous. Lovely relaxed bar/lounging about area. Take advantage of their discounted travel passes. Skip the breakfast at the place next door they ogfer. Not very fresh. Better value and quality to grab a coffee and a pastry at the stand in the metto station. Very convrnientky located right next to metro station.
Hands down the best hostel I have stayed in so far, anywhere in the world.
One of the cleanest and nicest hostels I have stayed in. Really comfy beds and was nice to not be in bunk beds. Not the best hostel if you are traveling solo and looking for people to party with, however it does have a nice cosy bar to enjoy a drink.
Seriously a better value than most APARTMENTS in Berlin. Had a 5-bed dorm, SO spacious, whole place was spotless. Toilets/showers, no complaints. Very comfortable bedding. Fast, free WiFi (fast enough for streaming videos) in rooms and main floor. "Bar" is also a library lounge, feels like an old-time living room, very cozy. Entire building gives you a blast-from-the-past feel, but in a warm and comfortable way. Not run-down or creepy at all. FANTASTIC location, short walk to Mitte.
Fantastic hostel within walking distance of underground stations
Staff and location sells this place very well. It's in the Kreuzberg area, but you do have to either take a walk or metro to the exciting parts of the district. Walking distance to the touristy sites too. Staff were very pleasant and welcoming and not expected at all in a hostel atmosphere.
A great place all around. The staff is very friendly, giving you a warm reception that makes you instantly feel at home.
The staff is generally nice, in special a girl with dread locks in her hair, she's really gentle and give nice Infos. The hostel is clean but beware : no lift at all. The beds are comfy and it's really easy to make friends in the hall. Only stayed one day and already brought back many memories and met nice people. The price is also really fair.
Great hostel! Great atmosphere down stairs in the common areas. Fantastic to be welcomed with a free drink and an explanation of the city. Staff all very helpful. Come, clean, decent sized rooms. Heating not working in our dorm for the 1st night but not too cold. Was fixed for the rest of the stay.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING my partner and i where very impressed and sad to leave, the guy on reception with dark hair and funky glasses was the most welcoming guy we could of asked for. he gave us the best greeting and even played guitar for a bit with my boyfriend which was awesome. complimentary tea/ coffee on arrival was such a nice touch too. location was amazing, atmosphere was amazing, the mulled wine was AMAZING! great value for money indeed. the only downside was no kitchen.
