Good hostel for the price you pay. Not so much safe and clean but very near to the cool places of fun in Kreuzberg! Staff sometimes friendly.
The staff is very friendly. The hostel is situated next to the river and close to the east gallery. Close to two stations. The hostel was very clean and the rooms were nice. The shower though kept turning off because it had a motion sensor which was annoying. Overall I really liked the hostel and enjoyed my stay there.
Easy enough to get into main sites. Lots of nice food and bars around and a good night life. Most uncomfortable bed... Mattress maybe 2 inches think and bunk beds were low with no ladder so no sitting place for bottom bunk. Also showers we're unreliable and light sometimes went off. Hostel was comfy enought for 3 nights and good value.
The printer and wifi were not working for two days which are a must. The men's showers are more revealing then I'm comfortable with.
This is your stereotypical hostel - it's just a bed, a place to shower. Bed is ok, sheets are clean. Rooms smell but that is the backpackers, not the hostel's fault. Showers/bathroom are ok. The place 100+ beds, so rooms get REALLY noisy and the staff does not do anything to keep the noise down, even though there are signs to be quiet after midnight. ASK FOR A RECEIPT AFTER PAYING. I had to pay twice because of an accounting error. I didn't fight it cause no other options for places to stay.
Great hostel, perfect location, good mix of people. S/O to the French kids who stole my hat, assholes. For real, the hostel is on the funnest street in Berlin... if you're in town to party as most are this is the place. Lock up your stuff though, the casual attitude that pervades this hostel means people nick stuff.
Bad security- you show a card to get in, and that's it. No locks on the room doors and only 4 lockers for a 12 person room. The window made it fairly noisy- people could stand right outside. It's pretty close to a U-Bahn station. Bathrooms seemed clean but motion activated showers are very annoying.
Good location near the clubs in Kreuzberg, and it was easy to get to the city centre with the S-bahn. Staff were helpful and although the place has a cool atmosphere. Probably best for younger travellers who don't mind the chance of a cold shower. Would definitely return.
