At first you might not think this hostel has the most amazing location, but it's actually in a very cool neighborhood of Berlin if you walk around the area! There are lots of very hip restaurants and shops. (Of course the transportation in Berlin is amazing so you can get anywhere as well) There's a nice kitchen and the rooms/bathrooms are all clean! There isn't the best atmosphere to meet people if you're alone, but it's not bad either, the hostel is next to a cafe where you can hang out!


We loved this hostel. A bit odd and funky but totally worth the money! The staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English.


Lockers were big enough to fit all of your belongings so make such you buy a good lock as hostel door opens directly on to a busy road!


Nice and cheap so good value for money but the showers could have been much better


The staff is really nice! The fact that hostel is next to Lindsays Caffe makes the hostel even better. It brings a really cozy and friendly atmosphere to the hostel. The rooms are clean, but can be a little bit small. The kitchen was really really dirty!!! But in general cool place to stay! :)

Nice that you enjoyed yourself in The Schlafmeile Hostel.The cafe next door is your Lounge where you can use Internet for free and take your shoes off and relax.You are on Holiday .Coffee ,homemade burgers ,fish and Chips (home made of course) And a good breakfast to start the day .With the best infor where to go and enjoy the Big B.,...The kitcken is allways clean ,can be it was the wrong day.. Thats for your stay and enjoy


The location of the hostel is a strange one as it wasn't close to the centre of Berlin or the central train station, however this came with many perks as the area was really lovely (many parks) and cheap! Getting into the centre wasn't difficult either with a choice of metro or rail services! I'd recommend Ostkreutz train station which is a 15 minute walk from the hostel and has a reliable s-bahn service to anywhere in the city! Everything else was fine and I'd definitely recommend staying here!


We stayed here for one night and I guess you get what you pay for. Not amazing, but ok. The location is a bit annoying, though. You have to change awkwardly and walk quite far from the station.

This is the place to be in Berlin ...Check it out ,,Markets ,all the BIG Clubs just down the road with all the parks where you can enjoy yourself ..I cant understand that you can say that this is not a good Location .This is the place to be..


A bit far from the city centre, but a part of city one normally wouldnt't experience. A lot of good places to eat and drink nearby. A tip: Rent a bike!

Average rooms and cleaning. But for value of money, Its a good place. Staff is helpful.


I really, really like this hostel. It was really nice to arrive back two years after i last stayed there and to find that the quality was still as good as last time. Quiet, secure dorms; good lockers; great kitchen; the bar is great, but is separate enough to not disturb sleeping; location is good as in berlin the key thing is access to transport, though the area close to the hostel is good for evenings; Very, Very helpful staff. Ace!


Very friendly staff made you feel very welcome! We had breakfast and they offered us loads if free orange juice and bread! Lovely hostel!

The reception and the internet is at a café/bar, and the further down the road is the kitchen and rooms, and then a bit further down, more rooms. So the only real common area is the kitchen and the bar. it works out pretty well though. A nice hostel, easy enough to find, and close to the S-bahn.


Great value for money, nice location in east Berlin. It was also very clean. Recommendable.


Coziest bed sheets ever!! Really comfortable, very clean, Nice kitchen, close to Alex (10 min by underground) and Warschauer str (15 min walk)


Location is ok, it's not right next door to anything but it's not difficult to get to places but you will need to spend money on transport. No laundry or wifi in room but kitchen well stocked so facilities were good. Not much privacy in the bathroom for showering but it was very clean. Uou have to pay extra for linen but you are not allowed to use your own sleeping bag which was strange. Staff were friendly and helpful.


Schlafmeile Hostel was the only place in the world that gave me a hard time with my reservation. The double room I booked 3 months in advance was unavailable. They offered me for free an uncomfortable night in a shared 10-bed room and a discount value on the next night. This was the very least they could do and didn't exactly solve the problem. Hostel staff work in a café at the same time, so you often have to wait for them to cook or serve meals before they can assist you. Not professional.

Sorry that ,everything didnt work out.But the thing is check -in time is at 16.00 and when you .It was your choose to go into the 10 bed dorm room ,which is my lovely room .Meet guests and have fun .My staff are the best and some times it does get a bit busy.They are allways there for the guests


Schlafmeile is a nice hostel to stay, not overpriced as the rest of berlin. In a nice area, close to the tram. The rooms are directly at the street, so you can hear cars etc. passing by. Didn't really bother me.


Good point : socket near to the bed. Bad point :don't have Internet in the bedroom, only at the cafe


We meet Nicola, he is the cleaner, he is a very simphatic man. Very dedicated to the work, and for this we found all clean. He gave us a lot of information about Berlin.


excellent hostel! perfect location, near a metro and tram station and quite near the awesome night spots in kreuzberg (suicide circus etc). remember to have a padlock for the lockers and beware people knocking at the door of the kitchen: its not always someone from the hostel, i think homeless around the place have learnt that the kitchen there is a warm place where to cook their stuff. but no worries, just remember this and you'll be perfectly safe. wifi works only in common room.
