The fridge was broken, and the kitchen does not have enouhg utencils, not even one glass, everything else was good, if you don't want to cook or just do easy meals it is a great place.

Dear J., thank you for your feedback. It´s a pity that you are dissatified with our guest kitchen service. Unfortunatly, not all our guest leave the kitchen cleaned up and with all the utensils in it. Nevertheless, we hope that you advised our staff at the reception, for new kitchen utensils, since we have everthing necessary in the house. Best wishes and kind regards Your MEININGER team


Kitchen needs more cutlery. It's also incredibly small considering the size of the place. During peak times of the year i imagine it being a problem

Dear Jack, thank your for your feedback. Unfortunately we can only use the space that is given to us. Nevertheless we try to provide our guests with the bare essentials to prepare their dinner. If there is anything else needed, our guest can always ask at the reception. Still we hope you enjoyed your stay in Berlin. Kind regards Your MEININGER reception


The hostel was very good. Very clean and fresh, the caffe down stairs was very good for breakfast and had local food like lard I know it sound yuck but try it once. It's more like a hotel then a hostel so the mixing with other people in a common area is missing, If you like hotels over hostels you will lov this place.

Hello Karen! Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry that our room size did not meet your expectations, but we are very happy that you found a way to arrange yourself with our offers! Hopefully you enjoyed Berlin and its great oportunities! Kind regards, Your MEININGER reception


Found some staff where fantastically helpful, "Kai" especially if I remember his name right. Some of the day-time staff seemed a little odd at times, nevertheless, they got the job done. Value for money was fantastic. Surpassed all expectations.

Hello Nathan, Thanks for your feedback! We are glad that you liked staying with us and we are looking forward to your next visit! Kind regards and have a nice day! Your MEININGER reception


Cant really give a good review on this hostel cause I stayed one night only. I noticed the reception is not really attentive. Also i was given wrong direction going to the hostel and I have to walk 3 km going to the hostel and tto think its just beside the subway. I dont really like the place the room is so cramp, the bunk bed is yoo high. If you have bad knee you need yo be careful clinbing up. Shower stopped every 5 sec then you have to push the faucet to get more water.

Dear Filomena, thank you for your feedback. It´s unfortunate that you are dissatisfied with your stay. We will consult our reception staff, relating to attentiveness towards our guests. Nevertheless, we hope that you had a nice stay in Berlin. Kind regards Your MEININGER team


Special thanks to Lidia at the reception desk and the young man at reception in the evening. Also, to the smiling young women handling the wonderful breakfast! And, for the first time in my extensive experience, this hostel has ensuite bathrooms which are large enough for comfort, well furnished with towel rods so wet towels do not have to be hung from furniture and many hooks as well as shelf space. Thank you! Also, great lockers. Perfect size!

Very nice rooms and cheap. Small too with around 6 bunks. Clean facilities and next door to train station. A short bike ride downtown.

Hey J., Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to read that you felt comfortable. Every satisfied guest makes us happy! Thank you for that! We are looking forward to your next visit! Your MEININGER team


Kind and friendly staff, good location but unfortunetly there are too many teenager while I was staying. It's too crowded and noisy in the mornig breakfast time.


More like a hotel than a hostel. Some nights there were only two ppl in the dorm, whereas others huge groups of school kids stayed. Good location tho, and very clean with good facilities. Lots of plugs in the room. I stay again.

Really enjoyed staying in Berlin, the staff were lovely and the kitchen was a massive help (and money saver!). Great location, close to shops and very easy to get to the rest of the city.

This MIENINGER Berlin Alexanderplatz was such a great place to stay. Great vibes, met a bunch of great people just by sitting in the common area. I would highly recommend staying here and will probably always stay there on my return trips to Berlin.

Hey M., That is awesome! Thank you soooo much for this great feedback! we are pleased and touched at once that you enjoyed staying with so much! See you next time and all the best for you! Your MEININGER reception


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.

Hello D. Thank you for your comment. Yes this summer was really intens and had some real hot days! In our climate an AC is not as important as a heater for the winter so it was hard for all of us. We are sorry and we got more fans you can get from us! So, for the next time we are better prepared! Have a nice day! Your MEININGER team


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.

Hello M., Thanks for your feedback and your great comments to our house. We have all kind of different guests here. Not a real focus on only backpackers. That might be a reason that you felt not getting in touch with others so much. Sorry for that, but our staff can tell you how and where to meet the people! Maybe next time? Your MEININGER team


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

Hello S., Thanks for your feedback. Yes our house, even if it is right in the middle is not right next to the party mile in Friedrichshain. But still you get around real good here and there are so many more things to do and see in Berlin than just the party scene... :) Hope you enjoyed staying with us anyways! Your MEININGER team


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.
