the breakfast was not worth the money. the rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. but if you do laundry, expect to come back with your clothes on top of the machines. but the drinks downstairs were pretty cheap. the hostel wasn't really around anything but it's right next to the sbahn and ubahn.

really nice place to stay, near underground connection, easy to get anywhere in the city centre.
Great clean hostel. Easy to get into centre of Berlin. Would come back for sure. Huge rooms.
The staff were extremely helpful and polite. Some people have complained about the location in other reviews. These are clearly people who are either scared of the metro or just not very good at using public transport. It's a 5-10 minute walk to Westhalfen Sbahn, from which it is only 2 stops to Gesunbrunen. From Gesundbrunen you have easy access to the rest of Berlin. However, if you want a party hostel, look elsewhere.
It was just perfect. The room was cozy enough to sleep and relax.
Overall we weren't too impressed with this hostel. The rooms are awesome, really spacious. However there is no air con, or even a fan and while we were there it got so hot in the rooms that you couldn't sleep at night. The wifi is really good. Kitchen is lacking utensils and pots,pans etc. One night there was a guy sleeping in our room who wasn't supposed to be and reception had to kick him out at 3am which was a bit concerning. Location is out of the way but there is a station close by.
Brilliant hospital that is an easy walk or quick metro ride to the centre. Beds comfortable and clean and big space for the 8 bed. Staff really friendly and helpful
A nice hotel-like hostel, not many people hanging around the lobby. The location is quite good even though it is far from the city center, the metro/sbahn station is near, so one can get to center in no time. Worth staying.
Kitchen was decent but didn't have much cookware to use. Rooms were clean and more spacious than usual. We kept having problems with our room keys working but the staff finally fixed that. It's only a few minutes by subway to the city center and is close to a station. The bathroom was a problem though, the shower leaked and there was no drain on the floor so the water would sit in the bathroom all day long.
Kitchen was really dirty and filled with flys. There was also no drain in the bathroom so the floor was always wet. Other than that the place is a good value for what you get.
This is my third time at this hostel, It is not really close to city center but it is close to s-banh and U station. The facilities are above average since this is a hotel with some dorms and you wont find the backpacker atmosphere as in other hostels. Everything is clean, although the kitchen is missing many implements that it used to have.
The hostel location was not the best, but overall the hostel was good for the one night that we stayed. We did not stay for a long enough time to really get a feel for the atmosphere, but that we observed was older/didn't mesh as well with us as at the other hostels we have stayed at. It was unfortunate (albeit thankfully not affecting us directly during our one night stay) that lockers were not available to our knowledge (unless the hostel staff did not inform us of them during check-in).
way too far from the center of Berlin, not much to do at the hostel, staff wasnt that helpful! I would say that u can find something better in Berlin for the same price!
It's far from everything, so you need to catch the train. Not really a hostel vibe.
- No soap in the toilet at arrival (evening) and departure (morning) - Toiletts in bad condition (poor cleanness, paper only in one in four toiletts available)

its nice and clean, with an elevator to ur room. nice kitchen to use too. clean and spacious room w lockers to use if u have ur own lock. shower is in ur room and its clean. definitely value for money, though it is not exactly at the city centre.
Hotel like feel for a hostel. Spacious rooms and common area. Kitchen is decent. Bathrooms could have been cleaned more often. Seemed like more of a long term hostel, so as a solo traveller I didn't enjoy the atmosphere, didn't seem like there were very many young people there. Wifi worked great, great deals on drinks at reception and the staff were quite helpful. Overall a decent stay except for the lack of young travellers to meet with
The location felt a little ghetto, but it was actually very safe. There were lockers (bring a lock with you!) - and the doors were closed with keycards. Internet worked fine and the shower felt GOOD (though I thought I would have more problems with the availability of the shower since 6 people were sharing one - no problem though, my roomates were gone when I had arrived).
