    Our group was really impressed by the quality of service, the hostel's location and the atmosphere created by the staff. I have to, however, separately mention Akhmed, the Bartender, and the atmosphere he creates with his amazing personally. We really enjoyed the two nights and would highly recommend to any visitor looking for a great option at this central location. As your door sign truly puts it - we came as guests and left as friends just after two nights ;)

    This was like staying in a hotel/hostel hybrid! Clean towels, en suite bathroom, kitchen, laundry, and everything was really clean. The location was phenomenal and nearly every tourist attraction was within walking distance. I was actually sad to leave! They also did a really good job of putting people in our room of similar age which was GREATLY appreciated! :) I would absolutely stay here again.

    Fantastic fuss-free, no-frills place for very reasonable prices right beside Berlin hbf! It has all the comforts of any comfortable and ordinary hotel room, just extra beds for shared rooms. I enjoyed my stay, but just take note that being beside such a central location, some noise late at night from the road the hostel is along is normal. Many floors but all serviced by a lift.

    Nice hostel in a very convenient location. 24 hour reception was great since we had to check in at 1 am. Only issue I had was the lockable compartment under the beds couldn't be locked with our locks, so we ended up having to just lock our bags manually.

    This hostel has to best location ever! It is right next to the train station and you can walk directly into the city and all the attractions. I stayed in a 4 person room and it was very easy and clean. I was also given a towel which was super nice. :) the only issues I had was the staff was very short and not friendly and the environment was not the best to meet people.

    Very Good

    The hostel was pretty nice, the beds were very comfortable. We were frustrated that no one working knew where the laundry room was, and when someone did know we couldn’t use it because it was under construction. It all worked out but upsetting that no one knew what was going on.

    When we were preparing to go out around at 10:30, one cleaning staff knocked our room and before we answer, just he came into our room. Then suddenly he started to clean up, especially during tidying up the beds and pillows, it made lots of dust and we felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed. We both are girls so thought that he didn‘t respect us at all. The most important thing is, it was not time to check out. The staffs at reception were so kind and nice. But he ruined all of good impressions
