Property Description

At the location of Berlin’s oldest hostel Ballhaus Berlin Hostel awaits you an unique old brick building which also hosts Berlin’s oldest ballroom, and now also one of Berlin’s oldest pubs, the infamous Alt-Berlin which invites hostel guests and locals alike on 6 days of the week. With a long history of hosting travelers from all over the world. A meeting point for the creative, music lovers, culture and history fans alike. Carrying on the tradition of the ballroom downstairs, our theme ranges from the previous “golden 20’s” to the upcoming 20’s.

Our hostel Ballhaus Berlin Hostel is located in the district Mitte, literally meaning 'the middle' and being a contraction of Stadtmitte (city center), contains the historical heart of Berlin and represents in many ways the real center of the city. It is here where you will find the vast majority of the most popular sights, museums, and theatres. Fans of history, art, and culture will feel right at home. Right around the corner you’ll find the Naturkundemuseum (Natural History Museum) and Berlin Wall Memorial. Also the central train station is in walkable distance. With a short trip by public transport you’ll find shopping at Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburger Gate, and Museum Island. There are many places for a quick lunch, enjoyable dinner and relaxing drinks in the evening. In about 30 minutes by public transport you can get to the club and party districts of Friedrichshain und Kreuzberg.

Our rooms are tall, bright, and clean. Every guest has their own full size locker and a big comfy mattresses. Each bed has its own reading light and power outlet for charging phones, tablets, or laptops. Access to the rooms is provided over an electronic key system, the hallways are secured by CCTV. Free WiFi is available in every room! View House Rules


The Ballhaus Berlin Hostel really is one of a kind. We're set in a historic brick building that's home to the city's oldest ballroom. Built in 1905, the dancehall has original features from the 1930s and a spiral staircase leading up to the gallery bar. We make the most of the space with plenty of parties (think burlesque and cabaret) as well as live music from well-known DJs and bands. Order a stein or two of beer in one of Berlin's oldest pubs (it's under the same roof) and really get into the city's party mood. We've also got an outdoor terrace and sociable communal areas.


We're in the central Mitte district and you'll find museums, galleries and theatres nearby. The Naturkundemuseum (Natural History Museum) and Berlin Wall Memorial are both just a minute's walk away. Arriving by train? We're an 18-minute stroll from Berlin Central Station. From Berlin Tegel Airport, take bus 128 for 11 minutes to Kurt-Schumacher-Platz metro stop and change to line U6 for 11 minutes to Naturkundemuseum. For some epic nights out, the party district of Friedrichshain is 28 minutes away on tramline M10 – jump off at Frankfurter Tor.

Rooms and Dorms

In our clean mixed and female-only dorms, sheets are free and each bunk has a reading light and a power point. Offload your gear in a large locker and freshen up with a hot shower in the shared modern bathroom. If you haven't packed a towel, we have plenty for hire. You can grab a private twin, triple or quad room with an en-suite if you like to spread out.

Extras and activities

Wi-Fi's free in the common areas, as well as in all the rooms. Whatever time you arrive, you'll get a friendly welcome from staff at our 24-hour reception. Join us on a free walking tour to really get under the skin of the city – you can get cash from our ATM for souvenirs (and beers) along the way.

    Just stayed here for one night and there is nothing to complain about. I was satisfied with everything. The only problem I had was that there was a lot of noise during the night because of people drinking on the hallways and in other rooms on the same floor. But I guess that is kind of acceptable at the hostels, so I took it easy.

    Great hostel with friendly staff and clean facilities, the reception is a little difficult to find. The rooms are very nice and come with their own shower and kitchen facilities.

    Excellent location, for all major attractions you can jump onto a train or bus to the two major stations. There is a lidl a short walk away if you are on a budget (this was our breakfast everyday) and it's super easy to get your barings. I cannot fault the staff, they were all very friendly and willing to help or answer questions.

    Very nice hostel. If you are planning on cooking here and buy food before you check in, please note there is no hob in the kitchen. Otherwise, the kitchen is well equipped and kept relatively clean. Would stay here again.

    Fairly pleasant place to stay for a couple of nights. Less than 1 minute walk from a tram stop which had great links to the rest of Berlin. Lots of bikes parked outside that you can rent which we often used too. There is a club on the ground floor of the hostel which can be very noisy at night til the early hours of the morning. Very hot in the dorms as no air con& just a few windows. Lockers in the dorms for people to rent at €15 deposit and free safe at reception. Not much socialising

    The location of the hostel is good and easy to reach by different transportation, the staff are very friendly, the girls' dorm where I stayed was clean. However, the room was hot thought the weather was nice and the WC was not in the dorm and there were only two bathrooms for the whole floor which I found it not comfortable.
