    Perfect location! Market, good coffee, doner place, metro all nearby. Facilities were super clean at all times. Can't think of something negative.

    We stayed only one evening but I can say that the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was extremely clean - everything we needed after an intense day of work in Berlin. The location is of easy access, we did a lot by foot but there is a underground half a minute walking from the hostel. Really happy with the experience!

    The hostel is fine, it has a good kitchen but there's not stove. Despite of this, everything was fine, the staff was nice as they even let us stay in the reception until late and the luggage storage is free . Recommended.

    Overall a very good hostel. The staff kept it very clean and the rooms were pretty big. However the location isn’t the best and they only had two showers for every guy to use.

    We were housed in a different building than the main hostel; in our building, the front door was always unlocked and no staff was present for security. In the main building, reception was on the 3rd floor, so they did not see all of the guests who entered. Berlin is a big city, so we still had to use the metro to get to the main sites. The nearest laundromat was a 25-minute walk. Since we were in the other building, the wifi did not work. Also, the shower did not have hot water.

    There is one male shower for several FLOORS!! And once you get in, there is no place to put your shower gel or shampoo so you keep it on the floor... The guys however have a perfect sense of sarcasm: as an explanation why you don't have a shower on your floor you read "yes, right, there is no shower, but the reason is that we are listening to your suggestions"! Wtf? If you really want a suggestion: get the bloody shower and I mean now!!!

    Firstly, THIS PLACE HAS NO STOVE! I find it hard to believe they call this place self catering without even having a basic plug in hot plate... so if you’re planning on cooking meals maybe go somewhere else. can’t complain about anything else. Beds were comfy and the place was cleaned every day.
