Note to the given directions: If you take the Havatac bus from either airport you will be dropped off in a side street of Taksim square. Go back to it, on your left side you may see the Gezi park trees, walk uphill towards the Atatürk statue. Here the main street begins, don't underestimate the length of it (may take the historical tram) and the masses of people strolling along. At the end of the tram rails skip the right turn and instead keep walking straight downhill a small cobble-stone stree
great location (don't mind the North Korean Embassy next door), good standard rooms, big breakfast buffet, it's a big hostel with a more anonymous hotel like atmosphere
Definitely good value for money, but be aware of the final cleaning and the bed linen charge. Negative: forgot to pick us up at the airport, after a phone call our transfer arrived, but a local taxi would have been the same price 23€. The bedlinen is one single thin sheet not a proper cover for a double bed, and the blankets looked very old and used. Positive: the location is excellent, even though we were put in another apartment than previously booked, close to the harbour, supermarket

It is not a hostel, rather an apartment with bunk beds and one shared bathroom. The location is just a stone's throw away from Alexanderplatz train station, which means right in the center of Berlin close to all means of public transport, bars, clubs, shopping centers, TV tower, several other sights, etc.; therefore also very noisy if windows are open. Staff is alright, they clean everyday. WiFi is too expensive, better try to find the open network of DLR!
Well the location is quite hiden, though close to the center and convenient. Worth the money for a decent bed, shower and kitchen. Breakfast is a good buffet choice. WiFi worked plus 2 common PCs. Nice detail: with your room keycard you can also use an automatic locker in your room.
Close to railway station and tram stop, nice rooms and cosy kitchen, big common area, friendly and helpful staff, affordable prices, I been there at the end of March which means low season, less people (it was quite) and kind of cold nights (ask for additional blankets)
Perfect location right in the red light district, pub and peep show next to it. Ask for a room with windows towards the water (Gracht), then you can view the nightlife in front.
nice place for a few days, movies at the evening, breakfast not cheap, fridges need to be cleaned up
the hostel is a good place to stay for sure, I had a pleasent time over there, beds are alright, the restrooms are ok beside the notorious dropin shower tap, the kitchen is big and gets cleaned regulary, the common area could be more cosy but at least there is a big screen, the staff is young friendly and helpful, so thumps up for HI Boston
