Good location. Room however 4 people very small. Although wasn't hot outside the room was like oven and struggled to sleep. Myself and fellow roommates all had issues with temperature in the rooms and only main problem.

This hostel is perfect, it is safe, clean, the internet works very well, the location is amazing and the staffs are friendly. But it's not a good place to meet people if you're a solo traveler.

Right off the metro, but far away from the night clubs if you're looking to go out (still fun bars in the area). Not the best place to meet others if you're looking to be social

Given nice room but had not been cleaned. Were then given room on other side of building on busy road. Room had no AC so had to keep the window open to try & cool it. Even with window open & blind closed room was incredibly hot & the traffic noise extremely loud. Went back to reception & asked for room on quiet cooler side & told yes in the morning. Got up & packed bags but then told by reception it was all a mistake, we couldnt have room! Don't visit in summer. Worst stay ever, no sleep.

Great hostel - feels a bit like a 'travelodge' or 'premier inn' in terms of style. Great value for money, helpful staff, clean rooms with nice en suite bathrooms. Only wish there was air conditioning. Wifi was good. Only negative is the location is further out than we would've liked, although the area is really nice and there is a metro stop very close by, so I would still recommend this place if you're looking for a nice and affordable stay.

Great dorm room with good facilities. Would have been good to have a place to lock our things away. Good kitchen and friendly atmosphere. Staff mostly friendly but occasionally didn't feel welcome. More like a hotel than hostel.

Meininger Hostels are an excellent chain of hostels in Europe would recommend to anyone, helpful staff for the most part and fab consistent facilities only let down was some rude/arrogant staff on last day who were unhelpful about storing our luggage and a bit rude when our key card didnt work - as if it was our fault. Otherwise could not fault them.

I'm a single male traveler and I would not recommend this place if you want to meet other people. It is very clean, secure and conveniently located but there is no common area and the demographic it attracts is not your typical backpacker but instead more of a family vacation group.

Being right next to the tube station is amazing, and having one of the best cafes in Berlin, 'The Barn' right around the corner were the two best things about this hostel. Although not a good place to meet people if you're a solo traveller

Horrible & rude (female) staff - don't want to help just want to do the bare minimum. Rooms were fine but had no lockers Bar was expensive and no atmosphere They advertised FREE breakfast however it was 7€!! Location was okay, had to get a few train stops to get to the centre of town. Stayed in 2 meninger's and both times the staff were rude. - wouldn't stay there again.

Really great location, two stops from Alexanderplatz and underground right outside the front door of the hostel. We walked to Alexanderplatz everyday was very close. It was very clean, the staff cleaned our room daily. On arrival staff didnt really tell us anything about the hostels facilities or the area, they just gave us our hostel key. We were unlucky as there were two school groups staying in the hostel when we were there ages 15 -17 years. So we didnt get the normal hostel vibe.

It's good for a chain hostel, but the 6 bed room was a bit cramped

Really nice hotel located right next to the underground station which takes you straight into town which is very convenient. The room was small for four people. There was a friendly atmosphere around the hotel which was nice and the staff were always helpful. Would stay here again.
