It was like living on your own - I guess this is perfect for students and young people. I'd suggest a big cleaning. Also, the internet didn't really work. But since this is like the cheapest hostel in Berlin, I guess we can't complain.


Great place to stay!

A Hostel without staff implies a dirty and unmaintained place.

It was like a house that had a spring clean once a month, and expected the guests to clean up after themselves - which didn't seem to happen. The shower needed a new curtain, toilet seat was always on the floor. It was a headache getting in contact with David to checking in as he was never there and guests were not allowed to answer the doorbell. I would suggest clearer instructions for their check-in process, and if you don't have german number, you'll probably be out on the street waiting.


Nice kitchen, good location, nice staff.


This hostel was great , central and daniel was great and i will come back .


Supercosy small hostel with very private atmoshere. Has a living-room., a kitchen and a jacuzzi and a sauna in Johns private apartment in the back of the building. The quarter is very multi-cultural, quite oriental, with lots of students and some nice bars in the neighbourhood. Especially good for longer stays.Super-gemütliche kleine Herberge mit sehr privater Atmosphäre.
