Very nice place with a friendly staff and with an awesome location in Alexanderplatz, it is very close to the public transports. Also the beds are big and the hostel is very clean. There are lockers in the room (this is very positive) and you don`t have to pay for the bed clothes.
Very good location but you need to pay for every extra service like wifi, towels, etc.. Showers are not that great (no place to put your stuff, not regolable water, not stable water temperature)..
The hostel has a good location, is easy to find, safe and clean, the staff were nice. Anyway if you want to socialize with other travellers, I would not recommend it too much. There was hot water in the showers only at some parts of the day (usually evenings) and the hairdryers on some floors were out of order, but that's not an issue for me. BUT what I really did not like was the fact that there is no shared kitchen, not even a fridge to store your groceries. Big mistake!
I have probably been very lucky with all of the hostels that I have stayed in during my life but I can honestly say that this was the worst for the following reasons: - Rude staff - Flooded and dirty bathrooms - Intermittent hot water - WiFi that did not work - Poor hostel atmosphere (much more like a hotel) Luckily I have a friend in Berlin and was able to check out after only 1 night!!
The wifi did not work. And I think it was not the first time they had this problem. The water in the showers was sometimes cold, something that makes perfect sense in winter.
