I enjoyed my stay at Grampas. Lovely staff, good vibe, there's always a pub crawl or something to do at night so very sociable atmosphere. Good kitchen and lounge area. It's not right in the old town centre but I think that's kind of good because you can see more of the city walking there. Plus it only takes 10 mins if that. Overall great hostel and great city :)
Best hostel I've stayed in so far. Perfect if you are a lone traveller as the couches in the living area make for a really social environment. Nice outdoor terrace too. Rooms were nice and big enough that everyone could have their stuff out. Lockers were good. Wifi also good but didn't reach the rooms. Staff were friendly. Great part of kreuzberg, walking distance to the clubs and lots of great restaurants. Would definitely stay there again!
Travel joy is a fantastic hostel, just 15 min bus from the city centre, it still manages to feel like an escape from the busyness of London. The staff were so friendly and helpful, Bobbie even took us clubbing one night! It really felt like a big happy family. There was an ajoining pub downstairs that always had a good atmosphere with open mic nights and live music over the weekends. The food was great and reasonably. We had a great time at Travel joy and we would definitely stay there again.
