Experience the best of buzzing Berlin when you stay with us at The Grand Hostel Berlin Classic. It's been standing for over a century, but we've updated it for the modern world! There's Wi-Fi in every room and secure codes on the doors. Our outdoor terrace is the place to be during summer, while our Library Bar is ideal for cosy winter chats. We organise regular pub crawls, delicious community dinners from a local Indian restaurant and walking tours, making our hostel the perfect base to explore one of Europe's most exciting cities.


Our hostel is on the outskirts of Berlin's vibrant Kreuzberg neighbourhood, within easy walking distance of the tourist attractions of Mitte and the bars of Landwehrkanal. Famous sights like Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Museum and the Brandenburg Gate are a short stroll away. Getting around is easy: we're a minute's walk from the Möckernbrücke underground station and a five-minute taxi from Berlin Central Station or 35 minutes from Schönefeld airport by bus and U-train. We also have a bike rental service.

Rooms and Dorms

There are no bunk beds in our mixed dorms – everyone gets a single with a nightstand. The building dates back to 1874 so our rooms have classic features like high ceilings and arched windows. Every room has handy en-suite bathrooms and lockable cabinets to keep your stuff secure (you get in using a keycard). Our private rooms, perfect for couples, are in a quieter part of the house, and come with useful essentials like free mineral water and towels.

Extras and activities

Reception and check-in are open 24/7 – essential if you're here for the world-famous nightlife. The next day, you might want a chilled one – that's what our comfy sofas are for. Or head to our cosy bar or terrace to relive last night and scroll through photos with your roommates. For a small extra fee, you can tuck into the breakfast buffet, rent towels and get your laundry washed and dried.

    THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE! My four day stop in Berlin turned into nearly two weeks! (and the best two weeks of my whole trip) Meeting the staff here (shoutout to Mitch and Anna) it’s no wonder I couldn’t leave! And no wonder the guests are so epic too! The staff create a real vibe and the library/disco/bar area always has a couch for you to sit on and meet people. The hostel itself has everything you could need and more! It’s clean, easy, and they have the best/ONLY advice for Berin.

    Amazing hostel. Well cleaned and good facilities. Location was pretty good, about a 15 minutes walk to the heart of Berlin. The bar was incredible. They had a nightly happy hour that drew lots of guests to have a beer and chat. I met a ton of really fun people that i ended up continuing to travel with. The staff were amazingly friendly, gave excellent recommendations, held good conversations, and led fun activities every night. Highly recommended.

    Good pick. Excellent beds. Nice to have laundry and even a bar and WiFi in all floors. But might have been because of the time I arrived but I didn’t like taking the shower too much hairs and seemed gross other stuff was fine

    This place was social in the bar area which was great and Berlin is big but you’re still close to stuff in this neighborhood. Nicest bunk beds I’ve stayed in at a hostel. Staff wasn’t attentive or engaging- had to look for someone to pour me a beer several times during peak times and the staff never actually initiated the trivia event that was advertised for the Monday night. Would recommend the breakfast. And they only do hostel bar crawls on Friday nights.

    My experience was different, for some reason in room which I was except men's have been 2 women, which it's strange because usually mens and womens room are separated. Here was all in. If you don't have any other places to stay, ok otherwise try to find other accommodation

    Two words: Bed Bugs. We liked the location of the hostel and when we arrived the staff were extremely helpful. We would have had a great stay... except OUR ROOM WAS CRAWLING WITH BED BUGS. It was bad enough that we checked out early and paid more to go stay in a hotel. Clearly this wasn't the first time they have had this problem. When we brought this to the attention to the staff they were frustratingly unhelpful and only refunded half of our stay. I do not recommend staying here.
