The best hostel I've stayed in! It's fun, friendly, clean and the staff really do make you feel welcomed.
Standard chain with a bar. However, it was clean, lively, and really central with a metro station literally right outside the door. They kick you out of the common room and couch chill out area at about 1 am though (depending on who is working) which is both unfortunate and odd. Beds are reasonably comfortable and curtains and charging stations in the bunks are a nice addition.
This is really a bar with some rooms above, not a hostel which has a bar. Its nearly impossible to find your room without a map.
First, the not so good: their computer system seems behind the times; an issue they had an issue organizing which beds were occupied lead to a rude awakening at 1:30 in the morning that I didn't appreciate. They also told me in error that only one hour of WiFi was for free after which I would have to pay; it was actually 24 hours free WiFi, but I'm still not pleased that it wasn't unlimited. Otherwise, very clean, good deals/food at the bar, and free breakfast in the morning. I'd recommend them.
The location is main thing working in this hostel's favour (it's awesome!). St Christopher's tend to be nothing special, but have all the basics down. The bathrooms were clean enough, but for the small number of showers and the very high number of people using them (expect to queue at peak times), they could never really feel that clean. Very noisy through the night, don't expect a full night sleep, even in a private room. One or two super kind and helpful staff made my stay more pleasant.
It hasn't Wifi in the rooms, sth that helps people who want also to stay there for a night without being disturbed from the rock music in the bar-reception! The light above my head didn't function and it was close to fall to my head because it was broken. The breakfast was very rich and good!They helped me a lot with the availability of storage room and I could leave my lugggage there for the whole day without carrying it with me, even I stayed only one night there. It was quite clean 70%!
St. Christopher's was a pretty cool place – close to the subway, enjoyably located above above a bar (but far enough away not to be noisy), and pretty good sleeping/showering accommodations – but I had the misfortune of being struck with a case of bed bugs. While this is arguably not the hostels fault, I was disappointed with how uninformed the staff at reception was on the issue, and thus am afraid their problems won't be solved any time soon. But again, other than this, it was a nice place.
I disliked the fact that I could not book in until 4.30pm on the day of my arrival. The fact that the whole place is catering to drinking kinda distracted from the excellant facilities and my stay in general. There really was no real chillout zone away from constant noise! a hostel this large in experience does in some way cater for that. It was a big disappointment.
Nice staff,good time, clean rooms thank you.

It's a good hostel. Very clean, with enoug bathrooms and showers, and the staff is very helpful. The only strange thing is that at the end of my stay they changed the policy shutting down the luggage room.

This place is average. The rooms were clean, but the beds were uncomfortable and the pillow was hardly a pillow. The bar atmosphere isnt great and the food wasn't great. I didn't like this place much...the staff was helpful though.
Myself and two friends visited St Christopher's at end of May beginning of June and could not have been happier with the accommodation, facilities, staff and atmosphere. A really convenient hostel and not too expensive eithe. All in all there is nothing I could have ask for that wasnt there.r
No kitchen, but good free breakfast. St. Christopher's are almost all the same. They are a hostel that is more focused around the bar below the accommodation than anything else. Not really a common area to meet travelers, but you can hang out in the bar and meet people. The hostel is very nice and very clean. Kinda like a hotel.
Was part of a bar, too much partying for me. Otherwise, not a bad hostel for the money.
Good location and great to have a bar in the hostel. Wish wifi could be accessed in the rooms.
I absolutely loved St. Christopher's, and would recommend it to any traveller visiting Berlin. It's got a great, laid back atmosphere, it's very clean, nice beds, great value shots at the bar, and free breakfast!!! I am definately coming back!
Very nice hostel, clean and safe, female dormitory absolutely quite at night. Delicious breackfast and good quality cheap meals. Discounts on drinks and food showing the room's key. Metro station in front of the hostel, perfect. I'll look for St Christopher's hostel in my next trip.
big beds and showers, nice bar and atmosphere. a place to go for partying.
