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 chance 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.

    I had a fantastic stay here. In my original room, somebody was stowing away their friends there and left me without a bed, but when talking to the front desk, they promptly dealt with the issue and moved me to a new room. My new roommates were awesome. I felt safe and never felt worried about the security of myself or my things. Since my dorm didn’t have lockers the front desk offered us the use of the paid lockers down stairs for free. It was cheaper and much better than my last hostel. Awesome

    Great hostel! A little far from city centre but pretty easy to get to and obviously the east side gallery is right next to it which is great! Great staff and facilities, definitely recommend!

    Great spot for a weekend in Berlin! Very close to the east side clubs and opens directly onto the east side wall gallery. Super clean, friendly staff, really nice room. Only thing was that the bar was closed for both nights of our stay - unusual for a hostel and sort of kills the vibe/makes it tougher to hang out with other hostel goers. Otherwise a really great place to stay!

    Solid location with good resources. Everything is nice and feels secure/safe. The location is tough to get to the downtown or tourist spots, but close to clubs. I ended up a lone in a four person room during the start of the week.

    The hotel was good and clean; however we were very disappointed when we weren’t allowed to use the communal kitchen on the last day to fill up our water bottles. We were refused water from a tap - and told to purchase water bottles from the bar. The staff were incredibly rude about this even though the communal kitchen was advertised as accessible to the public.

    There was a bit of a wait before I could check in because of a larger group, but after that I could go into my room immediately :) the room was overal pretty clean, although it might be a good idea to actually clean the bedframe of the bunkbeds, there were some weird stains :/ Bathroom was very clean, there were towels, which I didn’t expect! Very nice :) The hotel is very close to various public transports and not too far from a lot of tourist attractions. Would recommend!

    It was the first time I was disappointed with my hostel. First, the wifi didn't work. The bathroom was weird, no shower door, no privacy. There was no toilet paper, I had to ask. I will not be there again. The atmosphere was very youthful.

    The place does not offer a comfortable place to work or study and it was full of large groups of school children. The rooms were clearly transformed from a two-people into a four-people room. No privacy, very small and no lockers. Cleaning would only happen if they’d receive a new guest. I would not recommend, inspected much more.
