    Has a "hotel" feel, we liked that the rooms were only 4 beds and with its own bathroom. Small but functional. Staff was great, we booked last minute and due to computer stuff we had to switch rooms after the first night of a 2-night stay. They compensated us with free breakfast (normally €7.90) for each both days; breakfast is buffet style with loads of bread options, yogurt and granola, jams, chocolate, meats, cheeses, veggies, coffee, tea, juice. Tasty don't know I'd pay though. We'd return!

    The checkin/out process was very easy. I stayed in an all female dorm 4 bed with bathroom en suite. The room and bathroom are clean. The location is super convenient (right outside the station). Perfect for early morning train rides. The breakfast is a bit expensive with not many options. Would def stay here again.

    This was my first ever hostel experience and the place was really clean, the staff super friendly and breakfast (8€) worth it. I was a bit scared to be in a 26 female room but it really didn’t feel like it, it was very quiet and I had a great night of sleep! The only downside is the lack of social events for guests to meet, the one night I was there it was band night so I didn’t get to meet anyone as everyone was in groups. Overall, great hostel I would definitely recommend !

    Great location at the central train station - 1 minute walk to station entrance. Room was very clean and each bed had a power outlet. Beds were very comfortable and bedding was clean. Under bed storage was spacious, however was difficult to open as there was nothing to grip onto - needed to use the lock to help. Good breakfast for a decent price.

    This is not a hostel but a hotel room with a few more beds in the room. With that being said if you do not make friends with your roommates it is almost impossible to meet people here. The maid comes in and cleans the room every day so the facilities are spotless. There is only one small drawer for you to lock your valuables in so you definitely won't be able to fit your whole pack in there. Right across the street from Central Station, walking distance to everything else important.

    Very very busy hotel/hostel. The hostel 4 person en suite is so small you can barely turn around. It’s really small. I would prefer to bunk with 20 people and have room. That said the staff was nice, decent breakfast for 7.90€. Location. Lid right at the Berlin Main Station so that does make it super convenient ...get off train and it’s just a few steps to your room. Also makes it easy to get s tram U-Bahn or S Bahn because you’re right beside the main terminal for everything .

    Very Good

    Very nice hotel. I use the word hotel, not hostel. The facilities are very clean and nice, as well as a great location, but this is hardly a hostel. It's a hotel room with bunkbeds. The guest kitchen didn't even have a frying pan for cooking or a bowl for cereal. Sure it's clean and nice, but there's no social atmosphere for meeting other people are hardly anything to cook within the kitchen. Also, they don't allow you to have any of your own alcohol on the premises, not even in your own room.
