    The staff were really helpful and the location was great. The bar downstairs was also very cheap, and breakfast was good. The one complaint is the lack of plug sockets; in a room of 12, there were two plug sockets by the door and 3 in the toilet/shower room. This meant that it was hard to charge devices. Otherwise, no complaints.

    Service is great, friendly and helpful staff. Location is quite, not directly in the city center but near enough and you can take a wonderful walk though the Tiergarten. Not much of a community there as a lot of school classes etc stay there. What I'm really missing is more power outlets. There are not enough to let more the 3 people charge and non near the bed.

    No a party hostel (looks more like a Hotel) if you are a party-person this is not a good choice for you, too many local families and children are staying there. Clean was not very goot at bathrooms, some housekeepers only spent 3 min cleaning a bathroom, so fast, and the result: dirty bathrooms, but the social restrooms was clean, sheets and cover pillow were ok clean, otherwise the best of this hostel was the breakfast!

    BIG ISSUE: only 2 power points in a 12 bed dorm - located near the door as well so not secure at all. Very clean place. Good basis for exploring Berlin in terms of location. Full of large school groups and familys and not very much of a hostel hang-out and meet people vibe. Breakfast was standard continental affair with bread and basic toppings, cereal and some fruit.

    This is a place that hosts large student groups - not a lot of socialization going on. The breakfast is excellent. Room was full of mosquitoes and I got bitten a lot.

    I booked a private twin for 3 nights. For the same money I could have booked a great hotel room. + Breakfast is excellent. + Bus stop Infront of the hostel. + Location is good. -- No towels. You have to pay 7€ for a towel if you don't bring one. It's nowhere stated to bring your own towel. - Mattresses are very uncomfortable. - Noisy halls. - Very limited amount of wall outlets in the rooms.

    The staff was very nice, and the location was good since it was right next very to the bus stops. The room and beds were clean, but the bathrooms weren’t all that nice. It smelled a little strong, and the toilet was clogged a couple of times. Also the toilet paper ran out very quickly (It would be nice if there was more than just one extra roll of paper in a room with 12 people). You do get what you pay for though so don’t expect to much. Overall it was an alright stay.
