Very good hostel! Really close to U-Bahn, easy access to everywhere. Only the WiFi didn't work properly and the staff could be more friendly.

Dear X., Thank you so much for your great recommendation and for choosing MEININGER Alexanderplatz. We are so pleased knowing you as one of a number of satisfied guests and looking forward to your next visit! Your MEININGER reception


Wifi was terrible. Staff was rude about fixing it. No atmosphere to speak of. Located close to the U-bhan and Alexanderplatz but you can find way better places in better locations for a better price.

Dear MEININGER guest, Thank you for staying with us and for your honesty. We are sorry, that your stay with us, was not as fine as we wished to be. It is true, we do have a weak wifi connection and especially in the rooms the connection can be quiet low. Even our staff is helpless when it comes to such problems. Being rude should not occur in any case and we want to apologize for that. We wish you a happy new year and still hope to welcome you again! Yours, MEININGER reception


All are excellent except the breakfact which is overpriced..There is neither toast oven nor eggs supplied .Little varieties were available.You would try another day more.

Dear MEININGER guest, Thank you for staying with us and that you took you time sending us your review. First we are happy to know, that all in all you have had a great time at MEININGER Alexanderplatz. Our breakfast offers toast and on the weekends we also serve boiled eggs. We hope that you have ask our kitchen staff for further details! Breakfast expectations are vary. We hope to welcome you as our guests again and wish a pleasant day! Yours, MEININGER


Had a big issue while staying here that was dealt with professionally and thoroughly. Apart from that it was super average, aside from the great location. Kitchen only had one fork and no other cutlery, no mugs etc. I don't know why they bothered with a guest kitchen if they can't even provide stuff to eat with. We had a way better stay at the Wombats down the street afterwards.

Dear MEININGER guest! Thank you for your open words and your choice staying with us. We are sorry that you are sort of disappointed about certain details. Usually we tell our guests to ask for anything they are missing. In most cases we are able to fix the problems and pass anything that is missing. So please, next time do not hesitate to contact us with your questions! Kind regards, Your MEININGER reception


Really nice hostel. Only drawback is the groups of students that stay there. Other than that, great place.

Dear N., Thank you for choosing MEININGER and your open feedback. We are very sorry that our staff were not as polite and helpful as they are supposed to be. We will talk to all of them to increase our service and kindness. Nobody should feel unwelcome or even bad treated! Hopefully that won´t happen again. Yours, MEININGER reception
