This hostel is right in front of metro stop, making it easy to travel the city, but reaching the city center only takes 30 minutes on foot so that's what i did. Right in front of the metro is the famous Mustafa kebab stand and, let me tell you, it lived up to its rep. I had dinner (and second, drunk, dinner) here every single night i stayed in Berlin. The guys at the front desk are polite. The common areas are modern and the rooms and linens were clean. Overall, a good hostel experience.

The place for breakfast was really dirty when i was there. The hostel its too big so it was very noisy and at 8.30 am were playing music loud. They charge you an extra fee for the blankets and the wifo doesnt work in the rooms.

Clean rooms, but the mens toilet from the corridor were not clean in 2 days. Also, the rooms dont have enough plugs for all the beds. That is a MUST!


Nice staff. Good breakfast. Rooms decent size. Wifi wasn't great though and it was quite far from tourist sites.


My girlfriend and I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. From the very beginning we did not enjoy our stay at the Metropol hostel. On arrival there were hidden costs, we were charged every day for bed sheets and his was not included in the price when we booked it. We did not find the staff on the front desk friendly at all. The hostel was unclean in both the shared dorms and communal bathrooms. We would not come back to this hostel however absolutely loved Berlin and everything else we did there.

This place was exactly what I was looking for: a normal hostel with good value for money. The beds were fine, the staff was very helpful and the location was perfect! There is a U-bahn stop directly in front of the hostel and within 15 minutes you'll be in the city center. The hostel is located in Kreuzberg, which is in my opinion the most interesting and friendly part of Berlin. Don't expect anything fancy, just expect a proper bed in an awesome location.

The men's bathdroom was dirty most of the time and the WiFi didn't work properly, too slow. The place was average


Bathrooms we're pretty poor.


Definitely wasn't impressed with this hostel and did not feel safe here at all, anyone can just enter the hostel building. Could say I regretted staying for four nights. I didn't enjoy my experience.
