We had a great stay! Everybody was very friendly, the facilities were very good (hairdryer to lend for free, nice kitchen...). Friedrichshain is a great place in Berlin. I would definentely stay there again.


Nice location, close to Raw temple where you can find many cool clubs and bars. Well located especially for the public transports, the underground U5 is at only 5min walk, same for the S-bahn.

Very helpful staff and cool location a little bit outside of main area. Hostel is not too big so atmosphere is good. But not much partying at the hostel itself.


First thing's first- do NOT rely on the hostel's directions. They are horrible. Second, get a hostel in Kreuzberg. Jetpack Alternative kicks this one's ass, not only the hostel itself but the location as well (I stayed there for 2 nights after this one). The one good thing I can say about this place is that the kitchen is a nice place to meet people. However, having washrooms only downstairs is a pain in the ass AND the halls are pitch black at night.


Not a terrible hostel but there's room for improvement. This most frustrating thing about this place is the AWEFUL WiFi. You have to enter in a username and password almost every time you want to use it and eventually this becomes quite annoying. Also, having to enter a code to open the front door was a bit of a pain. New WiFi and card system would be a worthwhile investment. Otherwise, not a bad place. Staff are friendly and beds are comfortable enough.. ;)

Our wifi is offered by one of the biggist providers in the whole of Germany. Sorry, that it didn´t fulfil your expectations. Same for the front door: We do believe in offering a high security standard for our guests and therefore, yes – we have a code system.


If you are traveling on a budget, this is the place for you. its not much of a social hostel but for the price i didn't mind that. There are only 2 showers for the guys but that's not too much of a hassle. Its pretty close to a train stop but you need to ride for 15-20 minutes to reach any touristy places. Overall i enjoyed my stay, but as i prefer slightly more exciting/socially oriented places, i probably wont return to the U inn Berlin. its not you...its me.


So easy to meet people here. Very clean rooms. Staff is very friendly.


Awesome hostel. About a 20min walk to major clubs (e.g. Watergate), and right near the metro. You're in a quiet neighbourhood but can easily get around by U/S-Bahn. Great staff as well, very helpful. Not a party hostel. You'll meet people in the kitchen which is the only real social area. They don't organize going out nights which I think could add a lot, I had to ask around to find out where to go out - but when I did, the staff obliged nicely :)


good: clean, fairly close to S and U bahn, 15 min wolk from nice restorants and pubs center. not so good: atmosphere mor like a hotel, hard to meet new ppl. location not very central, to get to center of berlin tales like 20-30 min, and you have to change S or U bahn at least ones. all in all very nice hostel and good Value for money.
