    lovely hostel with FANTASTIC location. they have a luggage room where you can store your bags on checking in/out days- great and no extra cost. our room was upgraded free of charge to a private room with an en-suite bathroom. all staff were lovely and helpful. only negatives were that kitchen for self catering was small and the hostel environment wasn’t really aimed towards meeting people so maybe not the best for individual travellers.

    The Meininger is at really good place, and at least the 4 person dorms had a private bathroom (really nice!). The first room I stayed had good lockable luggage compartment under the bed but the other room had way way too small drawer to fit my hiking backback. Otherwise the room was clean, bit noisy (it just next to the railwaystation. Litterally).

    Nice hostel, the only thing that is extremely noisy where is located, you can't sleep well because of the station announcements all night and the construction just beside. And if you close the window is too hot.

    Very clean hostel with funny and helpful staff. Position is perfect, next to Berlin HBF. The only thing was that some other guests stole our food.

    Very Good

    13 Aug 2019
    Right next to Central Station which is nice. Not to much to do and see right around the hostel, but just a quick train ride and you're there. Laundry was more than 7€ and my clothes we’re still wet after 1 hour in the dryer. Some staff were really friendly and some seemed stressed and a little rude. Room felt clean. Overall, a good experience.

    If you only need a place to sleep because your train is leaving 4am - it's great. Good bed, nice lights, no lockers though. If you're looking for hostel climate, you won't find it here. It's a very busy 10-floor hotel popular with schools and sports teams with some tiny mixed rooms, a single, tiniest guest kitchen on ground floor, no real common area itp. Also, 4-bed mixed dorm seems to be favoured by men, and with room sizes like that, it might not feel like a dorm for a solo female traveller.

    Best thing about this place was the location as we were catching a train early the next morning. Fine for one night stay but wouldn’t stay any longer. Atmosphere was very quiet so hard to meet new people.
