Good hostel, did everything well with no issues. Atmosphere was a bit lacking, even though there was a bar downstairs everyone seemed to keep themselves to themselves.

Great hostel overall and I would definitely stay here again. Amazing location for a hostel and right in the hipster part of time, which means great restaurants and bars. Would be even better if they had WiFi throughout the hotel and not just in the rooms, easy improvement to make the whole place better. super clean and nice though.

The Hostel didn't really offer any activities or told you about cool events that are going on in the area. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and the bathroom/ shower was definitely not cleaned daily- kinda gross when there are 6 girls taking a shower every day. The location was perfect though! You could reach everything in like 30 minutes max.

Great hostel very clean, breakfast is a bit expensive (6.90) but it's all you can eat and very filling. Only downside was there was no fridge or kitchen available to use but other than that it had a great atmosphere and it was easy to meet people at the bar. Also the free walking tour was great and they pick you right up from the hostel!

Place is a little difficult to find. The rooms were really good but the common bathrooms were strange. No hot water. Breakfast was too expensive.

Does the job, a cheap stay with a varied breakfast selection. Guests are of all ages. Nothing to really complain of.

Such a great hostel in Berlin! Everything was clean, the beds were super comfortable, even though I didn't socialize a lot, it looked like a lot of fun in the common areas! I highly recommend!

Pros Very clean, lockers in room(key card locks), pool table and ping pong downstairs, bar, restaurant and awesome service. Cons In good location but hard to find the first time. Once you do it's very easy

The hostel was hit and miss for us. We thought that the breakfast was great. The staff were helpful and there was a great atmosphere in the common area. However, although we were only on the 1st floor, the Wifi didn't work and only worked in the main area. We never saw anyone cleaning the rooms or bathrooms. Someone from our room checked out and no one ever came to replace the sheets, making us wonder if ours were even clean when we arrived. Anyone could enter the front door - no lock.

The staff here and people here were amazing! The rooms are clean and organized... the lockers are some of the best I've seen! Clean bathrooms. Sweet atmosphere :) it s avoid of a walk or a short bus ride from all the major sites but it's definately worth it. Tons of really nice and inexpensive restaurants in the area :)

The hostel is in a nice location which is very close to public transport. The room was tidy and the bed comfy. Every bed in my room had its own power outlet and reading light. They have a nice common area with a pretty good atmosphere. There is no wifi in the rooms though.

Showers were really strange. Poor drainage caused excess water pooling. At certain periods of the day it smelt musty. Likely will be infested with mold in the near future. It's a shame because it seemed newly renovated. Horrible design by whoever built that facility and a waste of money. Overall very clean hostel. Very difficult to meet people. Very large and impersonal. You'll eventually meet someone at the bar but layout, size, and culture is not ideal for solo backpackers.

We stayed a couple nights and everything is great! The buffet breakfast was nice to fill up on in the morning. Cut down on eating the rest of the day. The look and design was very nice for the hostel.

Pfefferbett hostel was in a nice location very close to the heart of Berlin in my opinion. The staff were welcoming and showed me exactly where things were and how to get something if needed. Jakob especially was amazing so thank you to him! The room was nice with a clean ensuit. Only downer was the wifi didn't work in the room and the wifi didn't work at all during my second day at the hostel as they had a technical problem which was bad as I needed the Internet to book my place to stay

Great location, excellent breakfast. Negatives: poor wifi, no 24 hour access to tea and coffee, prefer gentler, less techno music at breakfast.

In general is a good hostel, but there are some negative points. Wifi and internet doesn't work in the rooms. Only at the lobby. So, really often you see a lot of people at the lobby, but all looking at the phone, and not interacting. And I've stayed there for 7 days, and the internet has worked for 4 days only. And it is very slow. Nice breakfast for 6,70. Bit expensive but if you eat a lot it worth. Nice rooms and bathrooms. Confortable bed. Fancy hostel, nice common area.
