Location is perfect - you step off the metro and are on the hostel's doorstep. Close to all the key areas and anything that's a bit further out is easily accessible by the train. Rooms were big, beds comfortable, pillows a bit lumpy but manageable. Good, friendly atmosphere, great breakfast. Some beds don't have a privacy curtain (my room had none), but that wasn't a problem for me.

Thanks you for leaving a review! We are perfectly located in the city centre, close to all the main attractions and well connected to the rest of Berlin, we know how important it is to be close to all the action! We are always happy to replace any pillows that are uncomfortable, we try to cater for everyone by having a mixture of firm and soft pillows available. Enjoy the rest of your travels and visit us again soon!

I've stayed in Berlin 2x in the past few months, and I won't stay anywhere else. The staff is very helpful and willing to meet your every need, the whole place is very clean, the showers are AMAZING (3-spout rain shower heads), and the bar downstairs is very convenient. The free breakfast is far above average, and the breakfast you can buy is super cheap for the amount of food you receive. I love this hostel! The only complaint I have is the wifi can be poor, so they should get more routers.

Thanks for your comments! We are happy to read that you had such an amazing stay with us. We are currently in the process of remodelling all our bathrooms and so far, the guest feedback has been all praises! At busy times the wifi can slow down, we are looking into getting faster connections, but we need to wait for approval from the owners of the building to carryout such renovations. We are glad that you also took advantage of our awesome free breakfast! All the best and see you again soon!

This hostel was not my favorite. Staff was alight, not very helpful or friendly. The bar is always busy at night and very noisy. There is no place quiet to relax at the hostel. It is a bar with a hostel, not a hostel with a bar. The bathrooms were far away and not extremely clean. The rooms had a small locker for valuables, be sure to have a padlock. Location was good, easy to find but not a lot around (the city is HUGE, so it was expected.) Breakfast was good enough.

The downstairs bar was ideal. The people who worked there and the people who stayed there were awesome. I highly recommend this hostel

This is probably the best hostel that I've ever stayed at. It's above a bar/restaurant that is cheap and a great place to meet people. Each bed in the rooms has a curtain for privacy, it's own reading light, an electrical socket, and a locker for luggage. The location is right by a metro and in a cool neighborhood. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and rooms were always clean. The only downside was that no male showers were working on my floor. I highly recommend this hostel!

Female traveling alone, had a fantastic time here. Safe, clean, met awesome people and the place was great. Had their own bar with food, outdoor seating, pool table and a place to watch the game. Was in one of the big rooms, didn't have a problem. Would definitely go back.

Stuff was very kind and helpful, Location is very close to subway and also 10-15 mins to one of the main Sq of berlin (Alexanderplatz) where you can go almost anywhere you want. But the only thing i didnt like, was paying for sth that generally is free in other hostels ( like locker & keeping luggages after check out....)

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Our staff work very hard to uphold our high standard of customer service, we know how important it is to be greeted with a friendly face! We installed our new locker room for guests to store luggage securely and at just €2 for an entire day, guests can have piece of mind that their valuables are safe. Unfortunately, open luggage rooms do not offer the same security. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, visit us again soon!

There was a smell of cigarette smoke in the corridors and as this is a non-smoking hostel, I find this could be controlled better. Location is good, staff could be a bit more serious.

Thank you for your feedback! Our hostel is perfectly located with the city centre just moments away. We have strict house rules, which include no smoking in the rooms. When someone is caught, they can be fined and asked to leave the hostel. These rules are in place for the comfort of fellow travellers but most importantly because it is the law. When these instances occur, our cleaners work very hard to get rid of the smokey smell, we are sorry you had to endure this. Travel Safe!

The staff was very helpful and the facilities were clean, I loved this hostal... too bad I was only there for a night. I also liked that the metro was right in front of the hostal! Loved my stay and really recommend.

Everything was good except that all but one of the male showers on my floor was out of order when I was there, and the one that was working gave about 2 seconds of water (not exaggerating) every time you pushed button. But other than that it was the typical St. Christopher's experience, which is pretty decent.

When we arrived the hostel we we're very well received by Ugo (one of the staff members). The hostel is really to close to city center, so you can walk everywhere if you want. The toilets were very clean and the rooms were quiet so you can rest as you wish. Downstairs there's a bar and restaurant that belong to the hostel, that are also open to the public, which give you opportunity to meet new people. When we returning to Berlin we will definitely return there again!!

Our hostel is perfectly located with the Berlin city centre just minutes by foot, we know how important it is to be right in the heart of the action. The friendly staff and awesome discounts in the bar and restaurant ensure guests have a fun filled Berlin experience! We look forward to your next visit!

Curtained beds: excellent!! The bar downstairs was great and a lot of fun (especially during the champions league finals!!). Luggage storage (before check in/after check out) is not free, unfortunately. Location was good. Short walk from Alexanderplatz, which is easily accessible from all over the city. Walkable to all the main downtown sites. We had really obnoxious, inconsiderate roommates, but that wasn't the hostel's fault. Staff was great.

Thanks for leaving us a review! The pod beds are awesome, offering extra privacy whilst staying in a large dorm, can make all the difference. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the Champions League Final with us, it was such a fun and energetic atmosphere! We show most live sport matches down in the bar, it is nice that travelling sports fans do not miss the important games while abroad. We look forward to your next visit!

Key card for room. Drawer padlocked for bag. Curtains on beds for privacy. Showers nice - esp. on 1st floor i think. Free breakfast. Good location too :) Looked a bit dodgy at first with bar underneath, lift was dodge and the street looked shady but was actually fine. It was a good hostel - and staff are nice. Happy with it :)

Thanks for leaving us a review, it is always good to read that guests have had an awesome stay! A big part of Berlin's appeal is that some parts of the city are quite dated and hold such historical significance, sometimes this charm can be mistaken for 'shadiness', but we can assure our guests that our location in the city centre is perfectly safe. Our bar downstairs creates the perfect atmosphere for guests to start their Berlin adventures. Visit us again soon!

Bed set up is great and free breakfast is a definite plus! Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner but overall a great stay for the price.

Thanks for your comments! It's nice to hear that you enjoyed the set up of the beds and rooms! Our cleaners work around the clock so it is quite disappointing to read that you experienced the bathrooms to not be up to our regular standard, we apologise for this occurrence. Our free breakfast is a great way to start the day, with such a large variety of offerings such as toast, meats, cheeses, cereals, muesli, yogurt fruit and juices! We wish you all the best for the remainder of your trip!
