Cheap basic hostel 20 minutes from the city centre by S-bahn (station directly next to the hostel). The walls are very thing and there is not really a cosy backpacker atmosphere. We came by car and could park for free.


Friendly and helpful personal. A bit far from the Center but bus stop right in front of door. No busses after about 00:30. Great breakfast buffet and coffee etc. Excellent value.

Nice and clean hostel far away from the city center but very close to s-bahn station, which means only about 15-20 minutes ride to Potsdamer platz. Parking, wifi and tasty breakfast included :-) The only minus we found were walls made of paper as we heard everything what was happening on the floor + all night snoring man in next room.


The breakfast provided was really great! Overall value for my money spent here was very good, would stay here again!

It's exactly as described. Dorms are huge and the place is underwhelming. It is cheap though.


No kitchen, very limited breakfast hours,


The staff was fantastic! The location, however, was a little difficult because of the work they are currently doing on the U8. Our Heizung did not warm the room well, however our experience overall was very positive.

Positive points: in spite of the hostel being far away from berlin downtown, it is located right beside of a Sbahn (metro) station! The breakfast is very good, the hostel is calm and the rooms have enough space. It is close to many supermarkets, mc donalds and restaurants as well. The only negative point that really needs a change: Better structure in the bathrooms. Since they are colletive, it would be nice to have some kind of boards close to the showers to hang your towels, clothes...


Nice stay with very good value of money with breakfast included. Very helpful and friendly staff and the room is neat and comfy. Shortcomings is the noise outside form the corridor could be hear clearly. Quite remote from the city center but the hostel is very near to the S bahn and it's not s problem, 15 minutes is enough to arrive the Brandenburg gate.


Location is a bit off the center but directly next to a subway station. Breakfast is excellent.


I stayed in the New Year, so the hostel was fully occupied. But this was not a problem , even to take a shower or something like this. The breakfast is really good! The only problem could be the location. The hostel is really next to the S- station. However, this station is very far from the centre and the famous things in Berlin. It take 20 minutes or more.


The wifi didn't work in the rooms


The breakfast was delicious. Altghough it's far from the city centre, the S-Bahn entrance is almost beside the hostel and you can get a day ticket, what is really worth for moving around Berlin. The staff is very friendly and is up to help you anytime!


We arrived in Berlin for the weekend with car to do some sightseeing. The hostel had his own free parking space which was great for us. We were assigned Private ensuite although we had booked 2beds in 6bed dorm. Another great thing. The hostel is next to both bus stop and S Bahn, which is very very convenient. The hostel was clean, heating was working fine, maybe a little to less soundproof but nothing significant. Wi-Fi was working great all over the hostel. BREAKFAST WAS AMAZING !!!
