    Has an excellent location literally steps from the main train station that you can take into the city from the Berlin airport. The actual area around the hostel is not super exciting, but does have a supermarket and some restaurants within walking distance. Hostel itself was clean and quiet. I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend it to others.

    To be living during a pandemic, I found it very concerning that they crammed 4 people in a shared bedroom. I don't find their COVID measures to be appropriate to what the current recommendations are.

    Very Good

    Stayed for one night. Good location as next to Berlin Hauptbahnhof however, can hear the station with the window open. Room was clean and in good order. Stayed in a 4 bed room. Was very small for 4 people especially with the covid situation. Room was double booked which meant there was people entering and leaving the room late at night trying to find room to sleep. Easy check in but the staff member was not friendly.

    I stayed 2 nights. The last night there was no electricity. I’m in a a new city 1000s of miles from home. I need to charge my phone for next day. I asked guy at front desk if I could leave it behind there and he saw naaaa. He wasn’t the best at customer service. With no way to charge phone it left a bad experience.

    Don’t waste your money if you are a self traveller. It’s a more of family accommodations. The receptionist are poor in service mind. They do not know how to serve guests, very inefficient and unorganized. They are the boss for the guest. What one of the worker said is “Im not your server”. How ridiculous it is?! They are working in the service industry but they they have this sort of mind set while working there. Can’t sleep at all because of noise from outside. I would never look up this place.

    It's not an ideal accommodation for a self traveller. Also, you can't make a good sleep because of people drinking and talking on the street. Moreover, the receptionists are very clumsy. They do not know priorities. That's the reason why you can see a long queue for check in all the time. They are so inefficient. Besides, they are lack of service mind. One of the receptionists said 'I'm not your servent', while she's working in the service industry. How ridiculous?!
