When I arrived, 2 guys at the reception were super rude to me but the others were really great. Also, as they have the bar next to the reception, you will find many people drunk going up and down using the elevator as they have no bathrooms in the bar. I've stayed for 4 days and cleaning I had only once (and they even didn't put paper in the toilet ). Lift is horrible to use as they have only two to serve hundreds of people. Be patience as It can take more than 5 minutes waiting for it.

Great location, 10-15min walk from the Alexanderplatz station that is great when carrying a backpack that is half your size. Staff is really helpful; I originally could only book one night through hostelworld, after giving them a call they accommodated with very short notice. They have shared bathrooms/showers in the floor which is not the best but didn't have issues waiting for a shower or anything. The wi-fi in my room was really slow and needed to go down to the lobby for better reception.

Only stayed here for a single night after missing my flight to Madrid. Didn't go out or try to meet people in the bar because I was so hungover coming from Oktoberfest, but it seemed to have a good vibe. More like a hotel style building with hostel style rooms and shared bathrooms. Had to pay for a day locker when I wanted to leave my bag there before heading to the airport after checking out.

Nice clean hostel, very large and hotel-like. Staff were friendly and very helpful. No kitchen, but the ground floor is a bar so food is available for a price. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants and easy access to the centre of Berlin.

Newly built chain hostel, clean and modern. Has elevators, electrical sockets near beds, laundromat, but no kitchen. The common room looks nice, but blasting club music all the time makes socializing difficult. The breakfast is very expensive and when you get to the end, you learn that orange juice and croissants are extras! HORRIBLE Wi-Fi that never went faster than dial-up. The showers on my floor were closed for most of my stay, and I had to go 4 floors down.

I am 42 and stayed here during end of Summer 2014. The reception/bar area had some super loud/drunk hooligans. There were people smoking right by the entrance. The beds were fine, clean sheets were provided, the shower was awesome and had great water pressure. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms.

Nice, clean and modern, good location near main Alexanderplatz metro (u-bahn) and shopping area, Berlin is a big city so the metro is a must to get around. This hostel is more like a hotel than a hostel, really nice and well looked after

No kitchen. Terrible wifi - barely works in the common area and not at all in the rooms. Expensive drinks and you are not allowed to bring in your own. Clean rooms but the shared showers are more like a locker room with no privacy.

I´ve stayed 3 nights there. Everything that was dirty (room, shower and toilet) on the first night was still dirty when I left, making it clear that the room was not cleaned up at all. Most of sheets available also don´t feet the mattress. It took me more than 30 min to find a proper bed one. Also the bedroom had no illumination everywhere. My bed was positioned in such a way that it was impossible to see it during the night, even with all lights on.

We only stayed on night in this hostel, it was a nice place apart from the heat in the dorm rooms. The window only opened a fraction and there was no fan or air-con. Bit stuffy with 8 people in one room! The shared bathrooms were clean although the showers don't offer much privacy as the doors don't cover the whole shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't get a chance to try the bar. Great location, only a short walk from shops, restaurants etc.

Staff was just ok. On the first two days I found them very unpleasant when it comes to helping tourists. Im so glad there were Lisa, a canadian guy (sorry don't remember his name) and Hattie (bartender on thursday)! They were so kind and helpful! There was music playing all the time on the lobby. What can be nice when you are just sitting there enjoying a tower of Carlsberg but is really annoying when you just woke up.

As all Hostels are its like a puzzle to maximize the amount of space you have available. But since you're not living there and it's only for a little bit it was great! One80 feels more like a hotel room with a lot of beds in it than a hostel. It is one of the cleanest hostels I have seen.

The hostel bar is pricey for a hostel bar. The rooms are unbearably hot with no ventilation. The atmosphere is a bit cold. The location is fine and the staff are great. It's an ok hostel but nothing too great.

We rented a 4-bed room with bathroom at ONE80. Not super big, but very clean, well-decorated, and had a good shower and facilities. The location is the best! Alexanderplatz is alive 24/7; the area is filled with magic shows, markets and bars. A lot of the attractions of Berlin are close by. Staff is super friendly and helpful. WiFi is free (though not fast). Negatives: lockers for luggage (after check-out) and towels aren't free, breakfast is pricey (better to go out). Barcrawl was a lot of fun!

Checkin time is just between 3-5 o^clock. If you arrive early than checkin time. You should wait. There are lots of tired travellers who are hangin around the lobby. The 3 o'clock is too late for checkin. They need to change it.

No air con made the rooms very hot at night, and whilst the majority of staff were knowledgable, some were either new or not at all informed about the local area, therefore couldn't make suggestions on things. Despite the volume of clients, I'd appreciate a quick map run through upon arrival and a bit of advice when I got there. If current numbers of staff don't suffice, then up staffing is required, as this was definitely a shared opinion amongst fellow travellers. Decent hostel though overall.

I wouldn't reccomend this hostel to anyone. The location is great, and it is very secure, but their facilities, rules, and prices are very poor. It's a €100 fine for bringing alcohol into the hostel. You would assume that alcohol in their bar would then be cheap... but no, a cocktail is €8! The rooms were on fire, no aircon or fan, and we queued for over an hour to check in. Very disappointing. One girl on the desk was very helpful, but the other staff were usually texting instead of helping.
