I think that having to pay for using the computers is a big problem for some backpackers who might not bring a laptop and need to skype. I have been to hostels all over the world and for this price, I think the service should be included. It doesn't raise the hostel's cost much, but it annoys customers.

Dunno what to say, it was fine. Somewhere in between a hotel and a hostel. The lobby is a great place to meet people, other than that, you're pretty much on your own. Super close to the train station if you take that otherwise it's a bus. There are a surprising number of prostitutes in the area, but they're friendly.

Located right next to public transport which can get you anywhere you need to go. Great staff and clean room with comfortale beds. Common to most hostels there is a lack of a suitable place to leave things charging while using the bed - recommend small shelves be installed. Overall a great stay.

Pros: The hostel itself has a nice structre and facilities in perfect state of conservation. It's very well located. Cons: extremely hot room, difficult to sleep even with not that hot days. Security for entering the hostel is zero. A completely drunk (and idiot) guy that was not a guest (he told me) entered into the kitchen area looking for the toiletes. This means someone at the reception desk gave him the key. He insisted in taking a picture with me and I denied, even argued. Tough moment.

We would like to apologise for this inconvenient matter and hope you still enjoyed your time in Berlin. Of course, security is one of the most important things to feel confortable, we will therefore make sure this will not happen again. Hope to see you again one day! Take care, your MEININGER Team

The room had no safe and only cabinets without any padlocks. I knew that hostels have this but many people don't. Would be great if you could always offer when checking in that you can rend them together with towels for a caution(I didn't know you could lent them so i always used my own one, same goes for my roommates).

Great location for sight seeing, not for going out. There were a lot of families and children at the hostel. It was more like a hotel. Wifi was ok, but everything else was up to parr.

Great staff , excellent location, lot of food chains , just across the road. Cleanliness in rest room is to be improved. By room freshners, since there is no proper ventilation. It is stingy. Over all I recommend to others.

Try to use internet was a pain in the neck. Small common area to meet people. Besides that, everything went perfect.

Take care, your MEININGER Team

The room had zero ventilation and was extremely hot to sleep in. The rooms were also very small and had no where to put bags. Only one person could lay a suitcase down at a time to get stuff out. The rooms were clean and the place was modern and had a great breakfast but I wouldn't stay again

Thank you for your honest feedback! Located right in the heart of Berlin, we offer budgetfriendly rooms and a couple of extra services, for instance free luggage storing, late check out, free wifi, bike rental, rich breakfast buffet .. This summer has been extraordinary hot, that`s true! We hope to still have been able to make yourself feel comfortable and would love to welcome you again to fully convince you. Take care, your MEININGER Team

This hostel is just off the train line and within walking distance of most of the major sites. It's also right along areas of nightlife, bars, restaurants and many parks. Great area and easily accessible.

The 6-person dorm was pretty nice. There was plenty of space and the toilet room apart of the showe, which is great. Make things easier for everyone. The only down side is there was no much room to hang the clothes or a towel, so we had to use our creativity. The hostel is literaly 5 foot steps away from the s-bahn station and other 5 from the bus/tram stop. Oh, since you can find great food with good price in the supermarkets and cheap towels at primark, dont bother paying for it the hostel.

Thanks for your review! Sounds like you had a very nice time in Berlin. The breakfast buffet is indeed very tasty :) and a bargain for 5.90 Euros p.P. Did you know we also have MEININGER Hotels in other European cities like Amsterdam, Munich, Vienna and Cologne? Why not check those out as well? Would be a pleasure to welcome you back one day! Take care, your MEININGER Team

Great location for a hostel, in the heart of Berlin with an S Bahn stop outside which is also conviniently the meeting place for many walking tours and pub crawls. The hostel was clean and staff were nice and helpful. Being a large hotel it lacked the friendly hostel atmosphere that the smaller ones have. Great hostel for groups but maybe not for solo travelers.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your feedback! Sounds like you had a nice stay! The walking tour guides pick you up from the hotel lobby at 10.30am every day and the pub crawl starts just across the street every night, so there`s plenty of options to meet other travellers and enjoy your time in the vibrant city. We also offer free use of our guest kitchen, which is a good place to get to know new people and have a few beers together. All the best, your MEININGER Team

Good Hostel. They are expensive but their facilities are really good. Wifi works well. There is no breakfast included. Good showers and rooms. If you don´t want to think and book something quickly without searching too much, this is your best option.

Good location, next to s line, rooms are nice. Plenty of good bars and a few good restaurants nearby. Not a party hostel

Great location and friendly staff. You have to buy breakfast, which is the standard cereal/bread/fruit. They have lockers but you need your own lock. You can rent towels for €1 a day.
