Carrying on the tradition of the ballroom downstairs, our theme ranges from the previous “golden 20’s” to the upcoming 20’s.

    The room was nice and clean. Bed was very confutable. Staff was nice and friendly especially Italian guy ( sorry I didn't ask your name!). The location is great. I felt totally safe and it was very quiet in the evening. My favourite part was they say it's not party hostel. So if you stay in Berlin for the party, you want to stay different place. I'd definitely come back to stay again!

    Lovely, welcoming staff, in an excellent location for getting to the main sites of Berlin on foot, and near the U-bahn for the rest! Super clean rooms, bathroom and kitchen, really cannot fault the place!

    Excellent overall, especially with great central location. Only thing I would quibble about is that for a whole floor of people (I was in a 10 room dorm and there were at least five other dorms of indeterminate size on the same floor), there are only two shower cubicles and two toilets per gender. Also be aware that they take a €5 deposit for the doorcard & €15 for the locker key, refundable on returning the card/keys.

    A great hostel and very good value for money. Location is absolutely perfect, with the Brandenburg Gate only a 20/25 min walk away. The rooms and bathroom were very clean. I was a wee bit worried about there only being two showers per floor, but this wasn't an issue at all - I never had to wait in a queue. The hostel decor is very characterful and the bar outside is nice to sit in. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars a short walk away. I can highly recommend.

    Extremely clean and organised hostel. Friendly staff and good kitchen facilities. I marked it average for atmosphere because it didn't really have one - for me this was perfect as I needed a relaxed and quiet place to stay, but if you're a looking for a loud and juvenile party hostel then this isn't it.

    Even though the building is kind of old and odd I had a great stay! Great atmosphere, very kind staff. Both the rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. It is also close to public transportation.
