Property Description

MEININGER Berlin East Side Gallery is located directly opposite the longest surviving part of the Berlin Wall, which today is an open-air gallery. The location of the Hostel in the center of the city, gives you the change to explore with comfort the capital of Germany. What’s more, the tourist hotspots of the trendy district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg at Warschauer Straße can easily be explored on foot. All other sights of the city are within easy reach thanks to the hotel’s proximity to Ostbahnhof station (S-Bahn train towards Mitte). The Mercedes Benz Arena is only 300 meters away.

Located within walking distance of Warschauer Straße, one of Berlin’s most frequented tourist areas, and mainline railway station Ostbahnhof, which handles around 100.000 passengers daily, the hotel will have excellent connections to public transport. Our hostel is an ideal starting point for shopping and sightseeing excursions. What makes this district so beloved is its unique atmosphere generated by the innumerable bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs around the hostel.

We are very fond of this district. Its unique charm is incorporated in our house. Do what you like, but only if you like! In the lounge, you can put your feet up with a good book after a long day, or enjoy free internet access on your laptop. If you fancy a cool beer and a chat, you'll find both at the bar. For a match of skills between old or new friends, we offer a gaming area.

Here, everybody will find something to their taste, whether in one of the countless restaurants round the corner, or in the Hostel itself. Our guest kitchen is at your disposal to conjure up your favorite dish while our in-house washing machine is doing your washing. Or if you don't feel like cooking, we also have vending machines.

    Nice modern hostel, near the train station and 2 supermarkets. It was quite even though there were school groups there and the staff were lovely. I booked because it was cheap but it was the nicest hostel I have stayed in in a long while.

    Hostel in a good location next to the wall and near to a train station for further wanderings. Bar was good and kitchen was well equipped. Had to move rooms half way through which wasn't too much of a pain. Didn't like you had to pay a deposit for the key for lockers in the rooms, but that's just a personal preference as I always carry a padlock when travelling.

    Everything was amazing! It turns out however that some room keys could open multiple rooms... we found this out when a drunk person went into the wrong room by accident using their own key! Besides this, it was impeccably clean and the staff were great!

    meiningers are really nice hostel / hotels, but more commercial than social, if you’re looking to meet people. Nice bedding, clean room, nice staff, right by transit and the wall. If I came to Berlin again, though, I’ll look for a more social hostel where I can get a cheaper cup of coffee. 🙂

    Very Good

    22 Mar 2019
    The overall stay was pleasant and comfortable for both location and facilities. The only small complain is that the cleaning ladies were coming in before check-out time twice and that was annoying but apart from that I had a good experience. I would definitely recommend.

    This p’ace was so dirty. When i arrived, I had to ask the front desk to change my sheets because the cleaning ladies hadn’t and there were different hairs everywhere.. there was garbage left over from the previous guests in my bed and on the floor. I stayed at this hostel in Amsterdam and it was great, so I thought I’d have the same experience. The staff was kinda rude, and clueless. When I asked about things they advertised they had no idea. Also there are no lockers in rooms with 4 beds.

    The team is scared to help their clients or just be friendly. The team is thinking all about money and how the client may not pay..really unpleasant stay.
