Property Description

Our hotel is located directly at Berliner Hauptbahnhof in the centre of Berlin, in a top location. From here, reaching the numerous centres, bars, shops, clubs and other sights of the city couldn't be easier. This is as central as it gets. The Reichstag and the Kanzleramt are just a 5 minute walk.

Those who don't enjoy eating out all the time can take advantage of our well-equipped guest kitchen while waiting for their laundry to be done. And those who don't feel like cooking can find snacks in the vending machine in the lobby.

The downstairs area of the hotel boasts of several modern public areas. Here you can have free access to the internet on your laptop, retire into a cosy corner with a good book, or pop over to the room next door for a game of pool. If you don't travel with your laptop you can use ours for a small charge.

    It's a great price and a great location. It is very commercial and lacks some of the personality of other hostels which I enjoy.

    Love this hostel! Everything was clean and tidy. Location was PERFECT. Only con was that our room had no ability to lock anything up. Staff said the drawers under the bed locked but they did not. Therefore, anyone could get into our things.

    Fabulous

    It’s right next to Hauptbahnhof and the main attractions are at walking distance of 15-20 minutes. The place is super busy and you might end up queueing for your turn. What I didn’t like is to store and collect luggage you need to wait as there is a staff to do so every 30 minutes only. They should at least mention somewhere so that we’re well aware of it while making a booking. It’s a mood kill to arrive and having to wait for 25 minutes to store your luggage. Apart from that satisfying stay.

    Pretty good hostel, very clean, does the job. If you need a place close to the train station it's very good. Just don't expect too much atmosphere

    Fabulous

    Think of this as more of a cheap hotel rather than a hostel. You won’t get your standard backpacker vibes with the chance to meet other travellers. It’s a cheap, clean, and central place to sleep if you’re seeing Berlin’s major sites. There are families, kids, older people and everyone staying here, so for me it’s not a great hostel for travellers who are wanting the backpacker experience. Staff were helpful and pricing is reasonable. You are right next to Berlin Central station so convenient

    Very Good

    10 Jun 2019
    This hostel is in a great location, clean, comfortable beds. Other than that, I don’t have much good to say. I would not stay here again. It took 40 min just for me to drop my bag because of a huge slow line at the front desk. There is no air conditioning and not even a fan in the rooms. The also windows don’t open all the way—too hot! I couldn’t sleep well. Staff were not helpful. Did not have a friendly hostel vibe.

    A friend and I stayed one night here in a 4 bed female dorm. Reception staff aren’t very friendly and are unhelpful and the service was very slow. No air conditioning in the room (which was tiny) and the window couldn’t be opened so it was boiling hot at night. Also we were told there were lockers in the room but when we got up there all four were broken so couldn’t be locked and there was nowhere safe to store our bags. At least it was clean and good location. Would not stay again.
