First of all. The is number of things that need improvement. There is only one key to each room which is supposed to be hung on 'key hanger' and returned to the reception by the last person leaving the room. However no one downstairs says that. During our stay I saw the key once only and the room was open all the time. Another thing is no tea in the kitchen. And? Thats all! Cool staff, spacious and clear rooms, incredibly practical lockers under the beds, excellent kitchen and PERFECT LOCATION!

Good hostel, perfect location in lively neighbourhood Friedrichshain where you can find plenty of good restaurants. Tram and metro station close by. Very helpful and friendly staff!

This hostel was not what I was expecting. It was too big, more like a hotel, which made it harder to meet people. It was a nice location though, close to Berghain, Suicide Circus, and other clubs. Any questions I asked the staff, they were very unhelpful and couldn't even recommend any places to go for good nightlife. Rooms were clean, bathrooms were nice, but I did not enjoy it.

This hostel is situated in pulsing location with good access to public transport. It is a nice place to stay, however shared bathrooms weren't very clean during the weekend days of our stay.

Decent breakfast for 3€, good wifi and hot showers (no place to put your things or get dressed though), not the best location (far away from tram or trains), easy directions from train station by bus, staff not so helpful or nice, poor security with one key per room, bedrooms were not cleaned everyday.

Very cool hostel and great all around. One thing they could improve--as a green hostel I think they should be more cognizant of the cleaning products and incense that they use and find products that are all natural and not chemically based.

One of the most pleasant hostels I have ever stayed in. That wouldn't be possible without the staff, who had an obvious readiness to help. A perfect place to experience "alternative" Berlin, with a multitude of suggested activities and of course parties. The common room and garden outside make for the perfect place to meet fellow travelers, perfect if you are on your own. What did it for me though was the warm and friendly atmosphere - a cool spot to stay in a thriving city. Bis bald!

I had a horrible stay here. Berlin was the last stop in a trip where I went to at least 6 different hostels and it was by far the worst. The place was dirty and the staff was incredibly unfriendly. I got bed bugs and they handled it terribly. They blocked off the area I was sleeping in but did not move my things. They were also very unapologetic and did not reimburse me. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Nice and big rooms, the sanitary was clean and a 10 minute walk to the city centre. Hostel is stayed in the partying centre of Budapest but it is not noisy. Furthermore after 11 you've to be quiet and if you want you can sleep. And it's not annoying if you don't want

Great location and comfortable interior. My 8 bed shared room was really spacious and clean. Perfect if you are wanting to be walking distance to the berlin amazing night life! Not much of an atmosphere in the downstairs bar area but the organised events every night are good if you're travelling solo.

cool hostel, close to the metro-station (Frankfurter Tor). Nice people, stylish. Unfortunately no W-Lan in the rooms; but this is really the only "bad" thing... .

Some of the staff need to find a new job because they are very demeaning. Ask a question, get a smart ass response and a huff and puff. There were exceptions of cause, some great people working there who were friendly and helpful. The key system is a little different but for the most part it works. Can't fault the cleanliness although a blocked sink took 3 days to fix. A big plus is the light and PowerPoint for each bed. Should be standard in all hostels! Location was great.
