Property Description

Welcome to MEININGER Berlin East Side Gallery

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 favourite dish while our in-house washing machine is doing your washing. Or if you don't feel like cooking, we also have vending machines.

Chic and colourful, MEININGER Berlin East Side Gallery is a fun spot for your stay in Germany's capital. We've got an easy-going atmosphere, with lounges, a kitchen and a café-bar to chill in, and there's a games area if you fancy showing off your skills on the pool table. Our staff at the 24-hour reception will sort you out with tickets for everything from public transport to musicals, and they speak lots of different languages too. An optional all-you-can-eat breakfast is available in the mornings, and we can put together packed lunches for you as well.


You can easily explore the oldest part of the Berlin Wall – it's just opposite us – before popping back to the hostel to upload snaps of the iconic graffiti to your Instagram using our free Wi-Fi. We're about a 20-minute walk from the Kreuzberg and Warschauer Straße districts, full of cutting-edge cafés, restaurants and clubs, and a six-minute stroll from the Ostbahnhof train station, which heads towards Mitte in the centre of the city. Here for a show? The Mercedes Benz Arena is 300 metres away.

Rooms and Dorms

We've got single, twin and double rooms if you're flying solo or sharing with a friend, but there are also mixed and female-only dorms if you want to up your chances of meeting other guests. All rooms have en-suites and TVs, and bedding's included. Bunks come with handy reading lights and lockers, so you can bed down knowing your stuff's secure.

Extras and activities

We like to make your life easier: there are vending machines for speedy snacks, and an elevator to save your legs. Not packed your towel? Feel free to hire one from us. You can ask our staff about borrowing our bikes, too, or get the lowdown on tours in Berlin and travel elsewhere in Europe. If you're on a road trip, we've got a place for your car – ask about our undercover parking (it comes with a fee).
