Nice place to stay, 25 minute walk from city center or you could just take the train which is directly in front of the hostel, staff was friendly. Good little bar downstairs. Cheaper beer across the street at the kiosk though! Cheers!

One of the most beautiful hostel I ever saw with a coffee where you eat and drink very cheap and where it is very easy to meet nice people. A very very lovely place!

Very good hostel. Everything was very clean, rooms were comfortable, hot showers and cool staff!. I would stay there again. 30 minutes walk from the main station, with a subway just in front of the hostel.

To be honest, I expected more of the hostel and its location in Ehrenfeld. Although the location next to underground station Piusstraße is convenient, the hostel still is out of the way from all the attractions. Nevertheless, the hostel comes with a cosy café, where I enjoyed the African lentil soup and the Tannenzäpfle at the bar.

Excellent location! But I have to say that the Venloer Street is crowded and sometimes the noise outside may disturb your sleep. The bar in the hostel is also something good, but the lockout time could be later.

Far (walking) from all the attraction.

I wanted to love this hostel, I really did. Above a cute cafe, what a cool location! I just felt though that it didn't add up. I had to ask for too many things: the bed to be made up, laundry powder for the machine, another wifi code. The wifi situation (in June at least) was really bad. Also, we ran out of toilet paper (room of four girls) NOT COOL! Disappointing.

Location was very nice, right next to the metrostop. Not in the old city center, but in a nice neighborhood with a lot of stores and little restaurants and cafes. Security was ok, there were lockers in the rooms but you had to bring a lock yourself. Staff was very friendly, although one of them was not able to answer any questions. This was just one person though, the rest were very helpful. Hostel is pretty clean, they give you clean sheets. Not enough toilet paper though...

It's a bit steep. But I love this hostel very much. Especially the cafe on ground floor. Being able to sit at the cafe all day is a blessing. The staff are also very very friendly. Would love to stay here again.
