The place is great, very friendly, with delicious breakfast and useful little kitchenette. The only thing I hate about this hostel is showers. Dirty shower curtains, offering no privacy, absolutely no place to put your clothes or cosmetics except for the dirty floor, unpleasant power shower getting straight into your eyes with no possible control of the water


Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 2 days. First of all we thaught it was too far away from the city. However it takes only 15 minutes with S-Bahn and its very close to the place. They also have breakfast and a common tea room (where u can cook microwave food and boil water). I advice the place for newcomers. Don't hesitate, just stay there.


Absolutely lovely staff. We had to stay another unplanned night and arrived at the hostel after reception had closed, but they ere lovely and someone drove in to give us a room. Breakfast is included and it is a great buffet. The hostel is right next to an S bahn station which is about a 20 minute ride into town. It runs all night and is frequent. Staff did seem little disorganised on arrival but overall our stay was wonderful


Nice value for money, wonderful breakfast, but the walls so thin I could hear my neighbour as if we were living in the same room. I´m just happy he didn´t snore :)

A bit far from the city centre but we had rail passes so it was free to travel with the S-Bahn which was great. The hostel itself is really nice, great breakfast, comfortable rooms. Only problem is the staff isn't always there which we found kind of wierd.


A really good hostel but really far from the city center, there is a metro station really near though and it takes at least 45 minutes to go to the center of Berlin, a taxi costs around 30 euros so if u r planning to go out to party you have to consider that extra cost in ur budget.


Pros: comfortable beds, free wifi in the lobby, very good breakfast,good showers,cheap, good communication. Cons: no ventilation in the rooms, very noisy because it is near the road, no wifi in the rooms, no lockers, too far from the center,I didn't see the staff in 4 days


Very laid back and calm atmophere. Not exactly like a party hostel but i can see why som might prefer the quieter scene. Its an easy ride into he main city on train. Great spot right next to tracks. The cushions in the common TV area are a bit dra but thn again it is a common area. I liked it, however it did get reallreallt hot and stdstdfy in the rooms at nigtnigt even with he window open. L


Was very close to train station. Room was fine and made use of the kettle and microwave. Supermarkets near by which was handy


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.
