    Lovely hostel, right next to the most lively areas with bars and restaurants. Each bed has its own curtain so you have enough privacy . Fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, with shampoos, hairdryers and feminine products.Very close to the Ubahn and Enrico, the host, is the friendliest and kindest person. Totally reccomend!

    We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Riverside Lodge in Berlin. Enrico was so friendly and helpful; he really went above and beyond. His check-in process invovles him sitting down with you and giving you individual recommendations for your stay in Berlin based on the time and type of stay you want to have. The hostel itself is quite small--there's only a total of about 12 beds in 3 rooms with 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is nice, but the showers are only okay. We would stay here again.

    If you want to experience Kreuzberg, I think this position of this hostel is just about perfect. Not only that, it's 5 mins walk from transport links that can zap you across the city and beyond! With regards the hostel itself, we got a warm welcome and a really useful briefing (with map) about the neighbourhood and the city as a whole. The place was well equipped, relaxing and as warm as toast (the weather was pretty cold when we were there). Highly recommended.

    Good hostel. I think you’d be better off booking the 6 bedroom dorm rather than the 4, the 4 was very loud and very bright so make sure you have an eye masks and ear plugs.

    The best part about this hostel, as I found out eventually is the location. It is located in one of the edgiest (and arguably the most fun districts in Berlin). It is also pretty close to Burgermeister, which serves one of the best burgers I have had. Was travelling alone and didn't really get the vibe of the place, so only stayed for a night. Would recommend this place in the event you are travelling in a group.

    The bathrooms needed improvements. Whenever guests showered, the floors would be wet. It was not possible to adjust the water temperature or shower head in the smaller bathroom. The kettle was extremely dirty.

    Heating was not really working, front door could be pushed in from the street without key, but staff (Sabina) was nice and welcoming, it was quite and as a small hostel not at all crowded. Location great.
