    The best thing that make this hostel a value-for-money is the location. The city centre is about a 30-20 minute easy walk away. Staff was very friendly even when I arrived around midnight. Very clean and quiet, even in the 10 beds dorm. The only slight issue I have is that there seems to be only two showers (for women) for the non ensuite rooms. It wasn't that bad, but on busier days I can imagine it maybe causing some discomfort to guests.

    Berlin is a massive city, so this location is great for Museum island but is quite far from all of the night life. The beds were clean and comfortable but the walls are paper thin so it can get a bit noisy. The staff was helpful and buzzed us into the building which made it feel nice and safe. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. So good place if you looking for a cheap place to stay in Berlin that is safe and clean!

    Very Good

    I stayed only for one night at the Ballhaus hostel. + good location, right next to the public transit + some good cafes around + felt secure + lockers in the room with a deposit + friendly staff - can’t sit up in the lower bunk - not a hostel to meet people if you’re a solo traveler - although the staff was very nice, the overall atmosphere was pretty stale - kitchen needs more facilities
