    Had a great time here my ten stars are mostly for Edgar who was very helpful when my phone got robbed. Much love man and thank you! Hostel is nice too with unbeliveable views across the Spree. ´Slightly older crowd than i expected, very good location though!

    Just amazing that Hostal. The staff respected all our wishes and showed flexibility when we asked to change our room to one of the tents on the other boot. The atmosphere is unique and the location is perfect when you‘re planning on hitting the clubs nearby. I‘d definitely recommend to everyone who’s looking for an affordable place with an original touch.

    I was staying in a tiny room of 6 beds. There is only one shower (for two shared rooms I think) but the good thing is that you can lock it and have a full privacy. The toilets are clean and hot water was always when I needed. There is a wifi, some bar and a big common area outdoor (on board). The location is perfect - both, S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations are really close. And last but not least - the experience of sleeping on a boat was amazing :)

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was very beautiful. Stayed in a 5 bed dorm which was very small & difficult to house 5 people. Staff were helpful with giving us recommendations and answering any queries we had. Note: ask before arrival about any pre-booked parties as noise can disturb sleep especially if you are staying in 5 bed dorm. Thanks for having us

    Perfect location, just near metro and train station, and around east side gallery. It was worth of the money, but as you can imagine, a bit crappy and small. The boat had some washing and kitchen facilities (water boiler, micro, fridge) but you had to ask the staff everytime. The staff were really friendly. The boat had a nice terrace to hang out. I felt secure in the hostel, but the lockers in the room were almost broken, somebody could just rip them open.

    Rooms are small and the staff does not clean them daily. The bathrooms are dirty and there is a bee infestation in the shower of boat two. When we alerted staff of bee infestation, they did not seem to care. The location is great here, but I’d highly recommend spending a few extra euros for a nice experience.
