Really loved this hostel & it's quirky style. Michael was really friendly and helpful, making our visit to Berlin much easier! Distance from the centre was not a problem as there is a tram very nearby that goes straight to the centre in about 15 minutes. The kitchen/common room area is great to relax in and meet other people in the evenings. Really enjoyed my stay here!

I have stayed in hostels all over Europe and this is by far the best. It is kind of far from the city center, but that is fixed with an easy tram ride. The atmosphere is amazing. The staff are warm and compassionate.

Really cool hostel, the staff were very friendly and helped guide us with using transport and finding our way around Berlin. The atmosphere around the hostel was extremely relaxed, which provided a fun and socialable rest place after a busy day in the town. The owner was understanding and helpful when we came across travel problems and had to stay an extra night at last minute, and went out of his way to make arrangements for us. Unique and fun place, perfect for young travellers.

Great atmosphere and very helpful staff. I would recommend this hostel to anyone for whom being close to the city center is not a priority (given the quality of public transport in Berlin, this is likely to be the case for most hosts).

Location was not great, especially due to the fact that there was construction on tram lines. Staff were awkward and unfriendly, accusing us of not having paid when we left and then realising that we had paid in full on arrival! The description was a little misleading for the hostel as well. The lock on our bedroom door did not lock which made me feel very unsafe at night! Staff told us we could use a room downstairs to get on computer then went crazy when we walked in! Altogether disappointed.

Had a wonderful time staying here! Such great people and atmosphere! Had fun just chatting with everyone from around the world and hearing about their travels. The tents are awesome

Really beautifull restored factory. The people who work there are nice and helpfull. You do have to be able to live with the fact that the building is old and some things don't look as sleek and clean as a brand new building. We slept in a tent, which had beds, matrasses, blankets & Pillows provided. The common room and outside area are linked and look really great. Would totally go again.

We absolutely loved Sandino, we stayed in one of their tents it was a blast. They have chickens and a neat outdoor space it was really unique, and the staff was really understanding when we had some train troubles :) Only wish we could have stayed longer!

Amazing Hostel. Lovely staff, met some lovely people from across the globe there too. Nice, original dorms. Decent toilet/showering facilities. Facilities could have been cleaner and the dorms were a little on the dusty side, but good overall. Good kitchen/common area; great, social courtyard with plenty of stuff to during the day and evening. Location is the only downside, there is a nearby supermarket, but the city centre is 20 mins away (easy to do via public transport). Would recommend!!

Great place, community vibe, tent was great bedding included in the shady back yard. Location a little out of the City but in a nice neighbourhood and only a short team ride into the center. Loved our stay, which we could have stayed longer

Would stay again. Would send friends. Staff helpful and speak English. Friendly.. Nice things like hung laundray as we out for day so did not have to pay for drying. Nice balcony in room. Private rooms have own kitchen and bath. Need to clean and organize better. Some of applinces falling apart old. Run out of hot water. None in top kitchen. Courtyard noisey till 12 night. Others would say good social atmosphere. On major tram line to train station. Easy to TIGAL airport. Near supermarket.

Sandino is life. Sandino is love. If you like to chill, then this is where you must stay. Michael (owner) is the sweetest man alive and the staff are all very cool. It's a quick tram ride from Alexanderplatz (20m) so, which is AWESOME, because it's just far enough away from the city to be leaving touristland, but close enough when you need to go. It's a community of great people, great beer, chickens, and the occasional swooping crows. When I go back to Berlin, I'll stay at Sandino hands down.

One. Of my favourite hostels. The owner is super nice and the place is perfectly set up to create a welcoming atmosphere. There's a ping pong table, space for tents, and even chickens! Facilities are comfortable and clean too.
