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.

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. Hat ein Wohnzimmer., Eine Küche und ein Jacuzzi und eine Sauna in Johns FatheVPrivatwohnung in der Rückseite des Gebäudes.


stayed there for the third time - good as ever.


This little hostel is very cool and nice. There are not much people now, and mainly long term guests and students. It has more an atmosphere like a home, its clean, friendly people, central at the metro, perfect place. and totally cheap. Great place.


For this range of money you won't get anything better. nice atmosphere! nice hostel, but a bit cleaner and it would be great :)


Lovely guest-house, very special, interesting decorated, perfectly clean and cozy indeed. God guest and friendly helpful staff . Australian breakfast with Vegemite.


I did not stay at the hotel, very ugly place, attention. I was charged the first night. Would not recommend. No me hospedé en el hotel, muy feo el lugar, la atención. Me cobraron la primera noche. No lo recomiendo.
