This hostel was located slightly far out in the less interesting West Berlin, but the Berlin metro is very easy and quick to use (and, if you're immoral like me, very easy to use without paying), and if you're just looking for a 'base' you'll find everything you need here - the Wi-Fi worked very well, and the showers were extremely good. Our room was the very top floor and without a lift of any kind we had to walk up four flights of stairs with heavy backpacks... but otherwise it's a nice place!

The hostel is really close to Charlottenberg S Bahn station which is great! The staff seemed nice, although we were checked in by a girl who didn't seem to have a clue what she was doing.. didn't get our stay off to a great start. The lockers were good but quite narrow so it proved difficult to get a larger rucksack into it. Showers were warm but they were covered by curtains rather than doors which was a little off putting.
This place is really cool ! Specially the ambiance and the people that work there. This make your day. Also this is a perfect location, when they say near everything , it is !! You can nearly reach Everything from the station in front of the motel. Will be back.
Most average. Reasonably clean & comfortable. Although it says guest kitchen, it is just a table with some cups, plates, cutlery & a microwave, not even a sink.
What I liked the most was that it's so easy to find and it's just one block away from the subway. They provide everything, including towel. Even though it only had one bathroom, I didn't have any problem, because it was never occupied.
The wifi was good, the beds were clean and it was extremely easy to get to. Besides that nothing much to brag about. The girl at the front was as helpful as possible, but the guy who helped us at check in looked like he wished he was somewhere else. Not much for atmosphere, it was set up for good things, just nothing really happening and a bit of an older crowd.
The hostel wasn't horrible, but it wasn't very much fun either. It didn't seem like the kind of place were you could easily meet people. The rooms were also pretty small. On the plus side, it was near the train and was quite convenient for touristy things. I would recommend other hostels in Berlin particularly if you're alone and want to meet new friends. Still, it was cheap.
Great hostel if you dont plan to go out at night since all the good clubs are in the east side of town (30 minaway). Not a youth hostel and seems hard to make friends especially when travelling alone. Mix of travelling ages. Very clean though and i really like the rooms. Spacious. Good supermarket near bu. Easy access to train to get to city center.
Little bit far from city centre, but close to S-Bahn (so transportation fee should be concerned). The place is peaceful and the price is really cheap. It worth!
location is alright. room is big enough and clean. toilet doesn't flush very well and there's no blush in there... For the price it's good.
The room was nice and clean. The hostel is a bit out from the centre, so you have to take the train in or walk for a couple of hours. Some of the showers didn't work properly. I stayed in a four bed mixed dorm, however there was only two keys for the room.
very welcoming, nice kitchen, very clean, location is good, right next to local transport, however it takes about 20 minutes to get to the center, but totally managable. good value for money. would stay there again anytime!
Hostel is not in the best location, staff aren't the most friendly, exceptionally clean, decent wifi, and the kitchen is limited. If you get stuck on a higher floor you have to walk all the way up (no elevator), you get a free map, breakfast is decent (use cash, they charge a ton for using cards). Decent place, probably wont stay again though.
Nice hostel, very cool staff. Comfortable rooms and toilet. In front of the metro station but a bit far away from the center for me, I like more to walk!
Very good budget hostel. Good ratio of cleanliness to price. There could be more showers on the floor though. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Its was fine, but I didn't like some things: -you can't use dishes, and so on during breakfast time (since 8 to 11 am ) - one bathroom, which is connected with the toilet. What I like: - its not so expensive - clean, you get fresh towel - quite close to the city centre ( good transportation to the centre, s-bahn is very close to the hostel )

A great hostel for that price! Cheap, convenient and clean. There is a common room where guests can cook lunch and dinner and use the fridge. Lockers are in every room. The station is right across the street. And there are cheap restaurants and supermarkets at a walking distance. What else can someone ask for? :)
You couldn't use the kitchen in the morning when they were serving breakfast. Though the breakfast was very good! No lift and maze-like hallways. Didn't bother me.
It's nice that we can change the bedsheets every day. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff.
We stayed here for one night. The room we slept in smelled extremely of smoke. Since one of us is allergic to smoke and the other really doesn'like smoke, this made our stay very uncomfortable and our luggage and clothes smell awful. Additionally, there were people who smoked on the toilet, leaving their cigarette buds all over the place. We didn't meet fellow travellers, only some older men in the corridors who behaved as if they were living there permanently which made us feel uncomfortable.
