    Overall, this was a great value for the money. Easy in, easy out. Very close to the U-bahn, coffee shop and convenience store. One small complaint: they installed the Dyson faucet / dryer combo at their bathroom sinks. The device covers the ENTIRE wash basin so it is very impractible to wash your face or brush your teeth.

    The location was good and the hostel was very clean, but some of the staff members weren't very friendly. It was also strange that we were asked to take the sheets off of our beds and bring them to reception when we checked out.

    Was a nice place close to the centre of Berlin. Walking distance to all the main hotspots and train stns. Ideal for couples or more quiet travellers as party scene was on otherside. Everything all round was nice and good value for money it’s just shower and toilet had a bad odour.

    The worst Hostel ever. They said on website that they have 24/7 reception and few days before they send a e-mail saying that they can not have a staff because of Covid. I was there for 5 days, I just saw a housekeeping, she was the only one. My check in/out were in a machine. No pillow, just a duvet in a pillow case. No shower towel, they just have hand towel. They say if you need something should go to a pub and ask there, but only 1 person who works in the pub was nice.
