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.

Dear E., thank you for your shared experience. We are sorry that we didn´t reached your expectations. It is MEININGER´s aim to combine the best of hostel and hotel, so everyone is welcome, from globetrotters over businesspeople to families. Nevertheless we hope to welcome you again someday. Kind regards Your MEININGER team


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

Hey L., Thanks for your feedback. It is true, there are so many things to eat, drink, see and explore just around the corner! Meeting new people? Ask at the receptin and we can give you advise, where to go to! Hope to see you again! Your MEININGER team


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.

Dear H., Thank you for your open words. We are very sorry for your bad experience with us and we would like to appologize for not being polite enough. We will speak with our staff about your case to make sure that in future no one should feel bad treated. We hope that you can accept our appology and maybe you would like to stay again in one of our houses. Kind regards, Your MEININGER reception


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

Dear C., thank you for choosing MEIININGER and for your short but convincing review. Best wishes and kind regards Your MEININGER team


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.

Dear S., Thank you so much for your really nice review. We are very happy about your great stay and even more pleased that you want to return. We are looking forward to welcome you for your next trip in Berlin and wish you all the best! Your MEININGER reception team


Meininger is more of a hotel than a hostel with branches in all major cities, this has its perks and flaws as it can be clean and tidy but can also have less of a communal feel. It was a good stay but it may be harder to meet fellow travellers. Other than that the staff was very helpful and the rooms are very secure.

Hello M., Thank you so much for your kind feedback! We are happy reading your friendly words and glad about your great stay with us. We are also looking forward to your next stay and wish you all the best! See you soon, Your MEININGER team


Beds were very unstable and loud, rooms sweltering and only had the window to open with 6 people and no fan. Empty hand soap and shower gel in our room during our entire stay and showers turn off after 25 seconds. Kitchen was nice but once again no dish soap which is icky. Staff didn't really have good recommendations on what to do or see in Berlin, we used the map and free waking tour. TONS of kids on a school trip everyday at the hotel, very loud and took up common area. Overall Too expensive

Dear E., Thank you for your open words. we are sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations in anything. It is true that MEININGER combines hotel and hostel and our concept is to welcome all kind of guests from school groups to business travelers. For anything you might miss we always tell everyone to ask at the reception. Our hints for things to do or nightlife never can take care of all interests. Still, we would be happy to welcome you again. Your MEININGER team


This hostel was in a very nice location. across the street from the metro. Served its purpose.

Dear F., thank you for your review. In fact our MEININGER Berlin Alexanderplatz is located on Schönhauser Alllee, only one and a half kilometers from Alexanderplatz. Kind regards Your MEININGER team


More of a hotel than a hostel. Nice and clean with good facilities however a poor atmosphere. There was also a large group of school children staying here when I was here. Close to a supermarket and has a kitchen if you want to prepare your own food.
