Really good hostel. Great location in a really interesting area and really close to the best clubs and bars in Berlin. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean. Having 1 key per room is a bit annoying. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Overall had a good stay, was clean, staff were friendly and easy to find. Although would not recommend for a solo traveller, there was absolutely no atmosphere it felt as though no one was staying in the hostel. Compared to other hostels it is a bit pricey.

Very good facilities, staff, and cleanliness. Good Location near to the clubs and in a cool part of Berlin with easy access to public transport to go to the sites which the staff will direct you towards.

The breakfast is good value for what you get. Nothing out of the ordinary, but just good and simple. The coffee actually tasted like coffee, which from experience is something that happens very rarely in hostel breakfasts. The service was good, we borrowed towels (we had forgotten ours at home) free of charge, just had to pay a deposit.

Very good hostel, very clean rooms in a nice local area in Berlin, Good bathrooms, £0.70 beers during happy hour, go for this hostel!!! one thing I would say is from the train station defined catch the U Bahn, walking takes 2 and a half hours but don't let that put u off, most hostels in Berlin are out of the centre for this price and if your an interrail traveller you can catch the train into the centre easily for free anyway

Visually a nice place, clean dorms and Decent single beds with average facilities (even if they are all expensive) . The only thing that this place lacked is atmosphere! Not really a backpackers place. More like a low grade hotel.There was a school group running around all night. Which was annoying.

MINUSES:if you want to hang out with adult travelers, forget it since hostel is a popular place for school groups (around 15 years old, 70% of the guests?). Many additional charges (city tax 5%, payment with any card 3%, towel),one key/room policy not handy. PLUS: Awesome breakfast for 3€! Location ok. TOTAL: Definitely will not stay there again.Funny part:this place creates itself as underground, super alternative, not mainstream Berlin pearl.Reality: yyy? Kids?Very disappointing.

One of the nicest hostel I have ever stayed! The neighboorhood is really cool and super well located to the metro station, not so near to the center of the city but it is to The East Side Galery :) There is no elevator, so just keep in mind that :)

The majority of the staff we dealt with were very unhelpful and quite rude. The bald guy in the flat hat especially. He should not be working in a customer-facing role, he doesn't seem to like people. The hostel was great though, I've been there several times, the location, facilities and value are great. It's a shame the atmosphere was dampened by miserable working staff.

Weird set up with door keys. There are only 1 set of keys for each dorm. Anytime you leave you must return your key to the front desk. Annoying to have to keep collecting if the front desk is busy. Also need to leave your passport at the front desk in order to use the key that turns on the electricity in the kitchen. Very odd. Good apart from these two odd things.

The room I was in was quite dark and as a solo traveller I found it difficult to meet others. However, the facilities were very good and the kitchen one of the nicest guest kitchens I have seen. The location is a bit far from some main sites but an underground station is on my down the road and there is some night life near by. Staff were very helpful and everything was clean enough.

I had an excellent stay at the Odyssee Globetrotter Hostel. The place itself is unbelievably cool, goes well together with Berlin and the staff is great. They´re always friendly and ready to help you and good people to hang around with. The facilities were great, the terrace is awesome and it´s really easy to meet new people at the hostel. Great value for money and will definitely come back!

The best hostel I've stayed in for the last 3 weeks. Amazing for meeting other people and seeing what Berlin has to offer beyond the obvious tourist sites.

A lot of people were coming and going, but the staff seemed to do a good job managing security. They weren't particularly friendly or welcoming, but the hostel was certainly clean, reasonably priced and a good location so I would definitely come back!

Nice hostel. The private rooms are fine and the location excellent. Great many restaurants and bars at five minute walking distance. Good choice of public transport nearby. Staff reasonably friendly and gave good advice. The one bad thing, however, was the hostel wifi. It was only available via a javascript webpage login which my phone couldn't handle, which effectively saddled me with high costs of international roaming.

The hostel is really well located, you can find what you like in the near locals and it´s near the center of the city. Overall is clean, bathrooms were always clean. The staff is really friendly and helpfull, they helped everytime I had a problem (wich were a few during my stay). The athmosphere is kind of partying, so if you look up to meet other travellers, it´s a good place.

One of the best hostel's I've stayed in. Awesome location in Friedrichshain near heaps of cheap food and Berlin's best clubs (Berghain is just round the corner), good cheap bar downstairs to meet other travellers, great bathrooms especially. Recommended!
