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.

    Grand Hostel is one of the nicest/cleanest hostels I have ever stayed in. Comfy beds, big rooms, great amenities, in 20 minute walking distance to most touristy areas or a quick metro. Super friendly staff and cool common area. I was there on a week day so it was a pretty chill vibe. Met some cool/fun people and had great recommendations from staff on where to eat and where to party. Would 100% recommend staying here as a solo traveller or in a group.

Friendly , smiling and welcoming staff , they try to intruduce me with other mexican travelers , which was cool - I wasn' t really interested in meeting people but I can see the value of this move for solo travelers. The stree the hostel is in smells like flowers (literally ) , location cannot be better almost in front of metro mockerbrucke, comfy beds, I wish they had more bathrooms though other than that my experience was excelente.

    Staying there felt quite safe and convenient. At the same time, it doesn't seem cozy at all. I put 8/10. For example, the towels are paid, the lockers are paid... Also I needed to have a conference call with my colleagues and there was absolutely no place to do it inside, I had to sit on the stairs. To summerise, it's a good safe roof, but not more. The only reason I stay in hostels compared to hotels is the human attitude and flexibility. Unfortunately Grand Hostel lacked this component.

    Grand Hostel Classic is in a pretty good location, albeit a 10/15 min walk from the U-Bahn. There are definitely closer places but I didn’t have any trouble getting around. The staff welcome you with open arms and are really talkative. Great atmosphere in the lobby/bar area. My only complaint would be the automatic shower valves and the lack of cold water (odd, I know!) in the bathrooms. Who wants to brush their teeth with hot water? Additionally some ventilation in the rooms would be great!

    The staff were lovely and very helpful. Location was perfect. My only criticism is that it was loud and difficult to sleep especially on their pub crawl night. When the group returned, they partied until after 3:30 am. I took a sleeping pill at three to sleep. Maybe as someone older, it's not the best choice.

    Super late check in. Other properties' check in time is 1pm or 2pm but this one is 3pm. And when we got there at 3pm to check in, our room was not even ready yet! So much time wasted. Good thing is they upgraded our room to a private one. Room doesn't have AC or fan, and we went summer with temp as high as 33°C!!! Super hot! We did not avail of their bfast bec it starts at 8am. And it is quite expensive at 8 €7-9!!! We just stayed for one night. Overall it was ok. Great location!
