Good for families, not much of a party at night though.

It's not a hostel it's a hotel with dorm. If you're going to Berlin and want touristic fully it would be nice but if you want party it's a wrong place. The lobby was award and full of schoolkids and business man. They didn't liked my joke and wasn't so social. The stuff was really nice specially the polski guy who works in the night he was awesome.

Convenient, clean and adequate but sterile, corporate and institutional. More like a university dorm than a hostel but it delivers what it promises just don't expect tender loving care. This place is into doing volume bookings so expect tour groups, crowds and lines. Perfect for a one night layover and a good night's sleep before hopping back on the train.

Right in front of the berlin station it really doesn't get better than that. All facilities were excellent and the rooms were good as well. Breakfast is however not included and was expensive so I recommend skipping that as berlin is a cheap place. Overall the hostel was good and cheap would recommend it.

I thought it was a hostel but it's more of a hotel. There were lots of young school groups, and I just didn't feel at home. It's located right next to the station witch made it easy to get the and leave but it's a little tricky to get to and from the center at night.

Very clean, safe, but pretty much no vibe. Lots of school groups and u18s staying there, so not the best hostel if you want to meet people and hang out. Having said that, it was very clean, and the location (right next to the main Berlin train station) is good for getting around, although its not the funnest area you can get anywhere reasonable easily.

The stay was amazing, and the staffwas outstanding. The only problem was when a cleaner didn't come on thesecond day... Oneof the guys staying had made a huge mess in the bathroom and it was disappointing to see it still dirty at night.

This place is amazing! More like a hotel. Right beside the train station, great facilities except they could do with more than one washing machine and tumble dryer as we were up during the night to get the free washing machine because we had no clean clothes for the next day.

Good hostel. Extremely Big with a convenient location. There were several school groups which were a little loud but none the less a decent place to stay.

This hostel looks more like a hotel than a hostel, the facilities are very good and it's located literally right beside the central station. We only shared the room with 3 other people and both the bedroom and the bathroom were very clean and they even had tv and hair dryer. The only thing bar is that it doesn't have lockers, so you can't leave your valuables there. The atmosphere is not as good because there are a lot of teenagers and families, so it's not easy to meet other travelers.

Location is great - right at the Central station. Rooms were clean and simple - you get what you pay for. Staff at reception was a bit slow and looked like they are not enjoying their work. There was lot of kids/teenagers when I was there so it was very loud at the lobby all the time and at the breakfast time too.

More like a hotel than a hostel, not very easy to meet other travelers, but very clean. Very frustrating that they didn't have sockets by top bunks and pillows were super uncomfortable. If you're catching a train, stay here. If not, try somewhere else.
