Property Description

A chance to spend the night on the site of a former brewery – an unforgettable experience in Berlin! The Pfefferbett Hostel Berlin is located on the historic 'Pfefferberg' area in one of Berlin’s hippest and trendiest districts - Prenzlauer Berg. Right next to our hostel you’ll find artists' workshops, galleries, a theater, restaurants and a beer garden with its own brewery - they all breathe new life into the industrial heritage-protected area.

During the building’s reconstruction in 2007 the modern interior design was conceptualised in stylish contrast to the industrial architecture of the 19th century. In the 20 feet high lobby, with its historical ceiling and contemporary wall paintings, the coming together of past and present is particularly apparent. With the plain forms, materials and colors the furnishings of the hostel contribute to the unique atmosphere of old and new.

The central location and the good travel connections make the Pfefferbett particularly attractive for all Berlin travelers. The underground station 'Senefelderplatz' (underground line 2 or U2), that runs from the eastern inner-city via Alexanderplatz and Potsdamer Platz to the 'City West', Zoologischer Garten, is located right next to the 'Pfefferberg' area. 'Hackescher Markt', Mauerpark, the Museum Island and the boulevard 'Unter den Linden' are within 15-20 minute walking distance and the nearby neighborhood scene offers something for every taste – a weekly market, restaurants, bars, clubs, authentic shops, a lot of different bio products and, of course, the famous “Castingallee” are right around the corner!

Pfefferbett Hostel's like no other! We're housed in an old 19th-century brewery that's been transformed into a cultural centre complete with galleries, art studios and a theatre. And the inside's as cool as the outside, with a 24-hour lobby-lounge area featuring brick-vaulted ceilings, a massive light installation and a real fire. Our facilities live up to the hype, too: there's a 24-hour bar, garden and terrace where you can swap travel stories with other guests or use the free Wi-Fi. You'll also be doing your bit for the community by staying here: we're a non-profit that focuses on finding jobs for people with disabilities.


We're in Prenzlauer Berg, a central neighbourhood with a buzzing nightlife scene near the major sights. You can be at Hackesche Höfe checking out the Art Nouveau buildings on foot in 15 minutes, and getting cultural at Museum Island within 20. Alexanderplatz, the big square in the centre of Berlin, is a 20-minute walk, too. You can easily head in from Schönefeld airport on the express service that pulls in to the train station here.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed and female-only dorms have super-wide bunks with a locker, reading lamp and power socket. Double and single rooms are filled with bespoke furniture and have TVs. Beds are made before your arrival with free linen, and rooms are cleaned every day for that fresh feeling when you turn in. Privates have en-suites and you can choose from dorms with adjoining bathrooms or shared ones out in the corridor. We've also got rain showers and soundproof windows!

Extras and activities

You can grab a snack at the café or restaurant (don't miss the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet for €7). There's a mini-market for essentials and an elevator to take you up to your room. Grab a free city map or join one of our walking tours – you'll be an expert on Berlin in no time. When you're back, you can become a champ at pool, foosball and table tennis – there's free coffee and tea too!

    Staff is very friendly, there is a large inside and outside area to mingle. Drinks and food is inexpensive at the bar. Plenty of showers and bathroom stalls. Subway/public transport is very close. Highly recommend renting a bike from the front desk to get around

    Really great hostel. Super close to everything, showers were fantastic and the rooms were really big and spacious. Only downfall of the place was that the bar was never busy so it can be hard to meet people if you’re a solo traveller. Everything else was great.

    First impression when walking through the door wasn’t the warmest welcome. I assumed they were busy but it was just “here’s your key, go there” Most hostels take the fact that someone coming in may be new to the country and use it to assist. Showing them a map what’s around the areas, giving the wifi password, what’s included in breakfast (so I don’t grab some and then get reprimanded for taking the wrong stuff) would go a long way. That being said, best hostel showers and great bunks / space.

    I only went to Berlin for 3 days and I met some great people through the hostel as they have a lovely garden and outdoor eating area to socialise. The location was amazing, 5 min cycle into the very centre of Berlin but was in a self contained area but was very accessible to shops and bars and cafes on the streets without it being noisy (for those who don’t want that) bathrooms were so clean and showers were 10/10. WiFi was not in bedrooms which was annoying. But would recommend to anyone!

    Upon arrival we were immediately met with a somewhat less-than-enthusiastic receptionist. However, we quickly gleaned that this was not uncharacteristic of Berlin. No hard feelings, angry reception man. The room was very clean and well-designed, with sterile and functional bathroom facilities. Water pressure so good it was borderline painful. Unfortunately our experience in Berlin was somewhat discoloured by a 6am muesli-crunching roommate, but this was obviously no fault of the Hostel’s.
