The hostel was so clean and the staff was so friendly, they helped us from the beginning to end and they spoke to us as if we where friends. I took my little sister with me to Berlin and they made sure she was also accommodated for by upgrading us to an apartment so we could stay together. The Location of the Hostel was also perfect because it was literally 10 min away from the main station of Berlin, less than a min walk away from the nearest underground/subway.


Great place, nice room and we even had a balcony overlooking the telephone tower. Location is good but Berlin is a very large and spread out city so it is difficult to travel completely by foot.


Very clean facilities. Each room had great lockers and the rooms were very spacious. Rooftop bar was really good and drinks were good value. The location was also excellent - Mitte is a really cool and interesting area and there are lots of shops and cafes close to the hostel.


Staff was fabulous and very very helpful. The room was very clean and the ensuite bathroom a bonus! Nice touch with the welcome drink as well. Highly recommend


Couldn't recommend this hostel more - great fun atmosphere, particularly loved the wombats bar that stays open til 2am . Everyone is so friendly including the staff. Location is perfect and rooms are clean and decent size

Pretty good atmosphere. Wifi isn't available on the second floor and was slow in most places except the lobby. Staff was very friendly and always helpful! Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in but not dirty,


Well located, clean and well secured.


Staff were incredibly helpful, especially one guy (forgot to ask his name) who was so nice and helped sort out problems we had with our roommates. Had a nice atmosphere and was in a good location for getting to the sights, but is a bit awkward to get to from the Hauptbahnhof.


Its not as good as everyone mentioned. Staff was really rude.


Overall is a good hostel, but I really don't know how it is one of the top ranked ones. Things that really suprised me once got there: - Very small common area, just a couple of sofas, no games/books or whatever - Breakfast not included even if the price is really expensive (+ 4€ for just some bread, cheese, tomatoes, and ham.. plus if you want eggs you have to pay) - No air conditioning system (we were actually sweating ourselves off during the nights)

thanks for your stay. our common areas might not be the biggest (will be changed this winter), but we do offer, apart from the lobby, a guest kitchen and backyard as well as a roof top tarrace that's open from 8am. we do have games (chess, settler of catan, risk, cards, table football, pool ...). also, there is a little book exchange in the lobby. "breakfast included" means it's added to the price - we want our guests to decide themself. our all you can eat buffet is 3,80€ - which is to cheap!


Best hostel! We met the nicest people there. Rooms were clean spacious and air conditioned, very secure. Rooftop bar was amazing best part of the hostel. Kitchen facilities and washing facilities were excellent. This hostel has everything you need. Staff were incredible and told us exactly where to go and how to get there. I would go back here tomorrow.

Very nice hostel. Staffs are friendly and it has 24 hours desk. They provide all the facilities that you can ask for! Definitely recommend this place!


have done wombats numerous places simple clean and awesome little things that make it a higher standard then the rest. bars great for socialising


The location was very good.


Very nice staff and a nice atmosphere. The rooms are ok and the security lockers are big. I didn't try the roof bar, but the breakfast was ok. The location is just one stop from Alexanderplatz.


Probably the best hostel I stayed ever!


Amazing Hostel! Definitely worth the extra couple of bucks. The bar and courtyard are perfect places to meet fellow travellers. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is fine. Lockers in the room have a good security system and big enough for backpack. Location is fine.


Good hostel in a nice neighborhood, not too far from Berlin's nightlife..Great staff that was always willing to help and answer questions! I recommend you to stay there if you wanna have a great time in Berlin


At night time the rooms were really hot! We had a fan but it did nothing! We had a private room and didn't sleep at all


Cleaness is very improtant for me, as well as AC, and the rooms had neither. Also there were two creepy dudes sleeping on the same bed in my room and the staff didnt notice, being this a big lack of security or lack of interest in the guests comodity. But the bar at the rooftop was very nice.
