Property Information:

Welcome to our state-of-the-art hostel that looks a bit like a spaceship but is mostly harmless.

We’re your hostel for free stuff in Berlin! We’ve got free Wi-Fi at reception, free coffee and tea from sunrise to sunset, free maps and free English-language guided tours!

We are the most centrally located hostel in downtown Berlin and offer dorms, private cabins and private rooms with showers.

Each of our rooms has been painted by a different artist and features tables, chairs, reading lamps, lockers, a mirror, panoramic windows and wheelchair accessibility. Sheets and towels are included but are subject to a €5 deposit.

Our €4 all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet is served from 8am to noon.

Guests enjoy free WiFi and free computer access in the reception area!

Our relaxed bar has a comfy Chesterfield sofa and cheap beers (bottled and draught) plus Jagermeister on tap and much more...have fun! Snacks and drinks are also available at the bar and there’s more nightlife just around the corner.

Our reception desk is open 24hrs and we have keycard access, a free safe and a free secure luggage room with lockers so you can always feel safe. The large reception area has panoramic windows.

We have a pool table and a yard and garden where you can hang out when the weather’s suitable. You can also rent sunglasses and buy phone cards from us.

    Comfortable beds, great atmosphere for both the young and the young at heart. 5 min walk to the underground U6 and a 10 min walk to the S Bahn. Hot showers 24/7. Please bring your own locks and towels otherwise you have to leave a deposit. Also a 10 euro deposit to get a 'kitchen card' to be able to use the kitchen facilities. The staff were great and even allowed me to print a few pages free of cost, overall I would highly recommend this hostel.
