    My buddy and I had a very comfortable stay in a 6-person mixed dorm. The rooms are spacious and have nice high-vaulted ceilings and natural light. I'm not sure if it's Berlin culture for people to come and crash in a hostel while they go clubbing for the weekend, but there were often big group of Germans who didn't seem to care about interacting with other guests. This isn't a negative review, just saying it might be more difficult to make new friends if you are travelling alone.

    Great hostel. Staff were awesome, every person i spoke with was super friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean and bathroom facilities were also clean. Hard to comment on location in Berlin but it was a 25/20 min lime scooter ride from Brandenburg gate and checkpoint charli!

    Wonderful staff and charming old building. Room I had avoided bunk beds which was extremely nice to avoid waking up roommates for early morning travels. Keycard security was convenient. Staff were very knowledgeable of the area and had good recommendations.

    Really beautiful hostel. Only 15 minutes walk to Checkpoint Charlie and some of the other cool places to visit in Berlin. Free coffee on arrival. Lovely lounge/bar area.

    Had the best stay at this hostel! The staff were so lovely and happy to chat and give recommendations. In a pretty great location, walking distance to the city or you can easily catch the subway. Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. Showers and toilets are always kept clean as well. Already planning to come back here!!

    Beautiful building, great location. Staff are very nice. The place is for party people for sure. I’m an old sod, so i feel like mentioning that they ask visitors to keep quiet in the late hours, i think this should be enforced. I had to get up every 10 minutes to tell people to shut up ‘cause they kept talking loud in the hallway and slamming doors. Bathroom and toilet was miles away from our room, lucky and unfortunate at the same time. All you can eat breakfast was a bit poor for €9.

    Wasn't able to actually stay here due to the coronavurus, which was a bummer. The response from the staff in dealing with the cancelation convinced me that this is a place I have try if I visit Berlin again.

    Very nice hostel and location. Their bar area is really cool. Personally, i did not feel like a hostel there and hence a 8.2 Rooms rents were ok but there is no kitchen and the bar is as expensive as any other commercial bar in Berlin. And hence facilities wise I dont find them as a hostel

    This use to be one of my favorite places to stay in Berlin. It has definitely lost a bit of its magic! I understand why they are becoming like any other hostel- more beds, less uniqueness. Profit over comfort wins. Staff is friendly, beds are comfy, atmosphere is dull though. If you are just looking for a comfortable stay and nothing else, then this is still a good bet. If you want more, keep searching.
