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.


good ubication, nice installations and cool ambient.


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.


Great location, nice dorms and friendly helpful staff.


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.


I arrived at 1500 at one80 hostel the line was out the door to checkin. So i decided to go for a a walk and come back later. When I returne two hours later the line was. Still out the door. I decided to line up. It tookover an hour tocheck in. I came back down at 2100 that night and the line was still out the door. Only 2 staff to check in a hugehostel. Ridicoulous. The bathroom was broken on our floor so we had to go down 4 levels just to use the bathroom. Therewas a foul smell in the hallway.

The location was perfect and the room and the bathrooms were clean. The WiFi was very good too. It was a little bit expensive though. A few comments: some people of the staff were a little bit useless when two problems appeared, i had troubles everyday with my key card that they couldnt resolve (they even thought it was me using it wrong), and when i wanted to do the laundry they said they didnt have any washing powder and couldnt do anything about it, i had to walk a long way to a place.


Wasn't able to check in until 3pm. Staff weren't very helpful.


No air conditioning is really needed! Our room had no curtains and only one opening window! Way too hot at night with 8 people in the room!


We found part of the staff very unpolite and not helpful at all. The matresses in our room were very dirty and the room was not as clean as we expected it to be


Great hostel and helpful staff. The rooms were good quality and better designed that most places we've stayed. Didn't eat there, but drinking in the bar downstairs was affordable. Great location, right next the Alexanderplatz and fairly near the nightclub areas. Bar crawl wasn't amazing, would probably be better to do some research and find some great bars yourself.


Really good location and good chill out area. Staff sometimes treated us as annoyances rather than guests but there were some lovely ones. Really good pubcrawl with great staff. Food and drinks were not very cheap. Wifi was decent. Recommend for young people looking for a central and fun hostel.


Overall, I loved my stay. It was close to the train station and the TV tower.

One room was full of bugs but the staff did allow us to change room, however the staff aren't the friendliest! The location is great, really handy, a bike is a good investment when staying in the hostel however don't be surprised if you are told there are none!


There were 2 windows in the room, one of them was broken so it didn't open and The other opened just a part. The room smelled bad, The prople in reception was very rude, they charge 20 euros for each time using The hairdryer, and the coletive bathroom wasn't cleaned with frequency

Was a really nice hostle but it was a little bit out from the city centre. It was extremely clean and the rooms were fantastic. We would have liked if the rooms were grouped with people around the same age as we were staying with a married couple who weren't as up for the social aspect.

room next to main road makes it very noisy.


Worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff were rude, inefficient and super slow. The room was tiny and not suitable for the amount of people. The shower fluctuated from cold to warm all the time. The breakfast was overpriced and charged extra for every little thing. The lockers to leave your luggage were outrageously expensive. Would not recommend, especially as we later found out just round the corner there was a cheaper hotel than this hostel
