Nice staff, great location, nothing to complain. The mens showers are a bit of an adventure to use, but anyway - adventure ist what most of the poeple staying here are looking for anyway.


It was just great we stayed for 7 nights and if I'll back to Berlin no doubt I'll stay at this hostel !!

The staff at the desk were helpful and the hostel was in a good location. But there was no locks on the room doors which did not make us feel secure and we heard a lot of guests say that they had had things stolen.


Excellent location, great for going out. Good conection with central Berlin but when I was staying there three out of five ladies showers were broken and gents facilities were compleatly broken as well, and they were using female ones. There's no security in these showers and space to hide, so when you are changing there's high possibility that somebody will open the door and by passer will see you naked. Also annoying system with water and light disposal... ended up showering in dark.


so if you´re a party animal, this is your choice! location is excellent - very close to many clubs; absolutely cheap; lots of eateries around. the metro station is 5 mins away. great district (on my opinion, is the best in berlin). rooms are crouded, but spacious. maybe there are not enough mirrows there, wifi works only in the common room, and there are lack of sockets in the room. but it´s all solvable. will definitely chose this hostel when be back for clubbing


Hostelxberger's only redeeming feature is the location - Kreuzberg However, I would not recommend you stay in Hostelxberger! Secure entrance = none, we were given a half-laminated card on arrival and were told to show it to staff every time we entered the hostel. Nobody checked until day 3 of our stay. The rooms smelt bad, and toilet + shower facilities were unclean. The facilities were average and overall, the hostel was overpriced for what we got.

Security - we were given a half laminated card that we had to show every time we went into the hostel; we were rarely asked for it so anyone could go in at any time they wanted to. Furthermore, none of the rooms has a lock Value for money - None. I wanted to stay at another hostel where I stayed before but it was fully booked at the time of booking. I would've paid the same price as here but for much better conditions

Nice Hostel, great location for all the nightclubs


I have put all my valueables in the locker, so somebody stole my sneakers. The room was very noisy and the bathrooms dirty.

The lockers were too small to even put things in (a laptop wouldn't even fit) and not in the room. The location was good. Not too far from the nearest U-Bahn station. Staff was almost always high. They were a little bit rude, but mostly helpful. Atmosphere was not a good one. People staying in this hostel were very strange. Everything was really dirty. Bed sheets didn't fit on the bed right. Wifi weren't available in the rooms. The shower curtains were see-through and the lights went off.
