very clean hostel, you just need to pay more attention to the showers, or to tell the guests to be more cleal with them. Although overall cleaning very good.


It's otherwise good hostel except difficult to walk to any main attractions and metro is expensive in Berlin.


Great place to stay in Berlin. Clean, location is great (2 stops from Alexanderplatz), staff are exceptional. The atmosphere is also very nice. You can get a decent breakfast for just 6 euros - that's a good start in the day. I would stay again at Pfefferbett and recommend it to my friends.

great breakfast (but not included), free internet, comfortable beds


Very Clean, very well located, good price. BREAKFAST FEE 6eur, no fridge.


Pfefferbett Hostel had a good location, right by the U ban, super easy to get into the city. The facilities were amazing, very cool building, exposed brick ceilings, clean, big windows. Out of my 10-day European travels this was the best hostel we stayed it. I would highly recommend it.


Nice staff, clean, spacious rooms with great lockers, good location walking distance from Alexander Platz. Would stay again if I return to Berlin.


Staff felt somehow distant and they paid attention way more to their of business than customers. 24/7 bar and good breakfast buffet is big plus!


I stayed in a spacy single room, totally modern, totally clean. About 15 minutes walk from Alexanderplatz or 5 from Rosa-Luxemburgplatz U-bahn. A nice garden bar, theatre just behind the hostel treshold. All the Prenzlauer Berg bars very close.


Always difficulties in check-in and how much it costs. City tax not included in deposit reservations and it adds on desk.


The female Polish receptionist we regularly encountered was surly, rude and unhelpful. We never received an initial introduction to the city and every time we needed advice or instructions all the staff were HOPELESS. There is zero mingling here as there are so few backpackers and so many children and old people. No fun young atmosphere but the place is clean, food is good, and the male staff quite friendly. Would recommend St Christopher's down the road. Shout out to aslan the dog.


Was a good place to stay with good atmosphere.


the location is highly appropriate, very close to the train station. also, the free walking tour is very much recommended

This hostel was perfect! So near to Alexanderplatz, clean, staff were awesome! but maybe,as a minor suggestion, people who talking out after 12pm can be a bit quite. I highly recommend this hostel for you !


Cons Wifi is virtually non-existent. It borders on false advertising to say they offer free wifi. The high tech lockers (that use small magnetic keys) do not work properly, and the keys are easy to lose (and expensive). Alot of noise from the hallways. Poor design of the windows and door closers...They seemed to be hosting a youth event which did not help matters. Pros The beds were comfortable and it was right next to the ubaun. A cheap place to sleep.


A great experience staying at Pfefferbett. Good location (right by a u-bahn) and a very friendly atmosphere. Rooms are a good size. The only slight negative is the poor wifi - this may have secretly been a blessing.

Very nice hostel, quite modern. Friendly staff, organised rooms, high standard of cleanliness in all areas, included in the showers and toilets.


Hostel is in front of the subway. You can reach the city center in minutes. It is also located in a nice area with lots of bars and restaurants. The lobby is a cool place to hang out and meet new people. Good vibe. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. I would stay here again!
