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.

We offer accommodation in single and twin rooms, shared rooms or a dormitory. All rooms have their own bathroom with a shower and toilet and are equipped with a TV set. No need to bring bedding - this is included in the accommodation.

    Stayed for two nights in a double bed room. Had a good experience overall, clean room with modern facilities. Didn't try the breakfast buffet but it looked quite good. Nice location right by Ostbahnhof s-bahn, and just a stones throw from Kreuzberg. One unfortunate thing to note; half the duration of our stay, our shower had almost no water or pressure. This was reported to the reception, but perhaps they didn't have access to a fitting handyman/person since it was during the weekend.

    Hotel for stopping over near the train station. Expect lots of student groups and people just passing through.it was clean and fairly quiet. Not much ambience in the bar, but staff was quiet helpful.

    Great location & the rooms were very clean. However, the front desk was completely unorganized & the hotel was not responsive leading up to the trip. We booked a 6-bed suite but when we checked in only 4-bed suites were available. First time going to our room, all the beds were already unmade & taken by other people's belongings. After getting a new empty room, throughout the night & next morning random people kept walking in thinking they were staying there. Wish we had gone somewhere else.

    If you want an affordable hotel then this is fine but if you’re looking for a hostel as a solo traveller I would not recommend. It’s really hard to meet people and the atmosphere is not great. There are no lockers in the rooms and you have to renew them every 24hrs at reception if you want one making it not very secure. Overall clean and comfortable but not really a hostel.

    The so-called hostel has repurposed hotel rooms as dorms. This means no lockers, and people unreasonably squished together. After complaining, an electronic locker was provided in reception— which needed to be renewed every 24hrs, which I found to be a major inconvenience, especially after having to re-explain to the reception staff each time. I’d recommend this place as an affordable hotel, but not as a travellers’ hostel.
