    This place is wonderful! Hostel owner is incredibly responsive and accommodating. He takes the time to sit down with you and make sure that you're well situated. The best part is how spacious the accommodations are -- you get so much personal space and privacy with a huge locker that will hold all of your stuff. Nice little kitchen and common area makes it easy to bring food back with you if you accidentally order too much. Also -- so so so clean!

    I really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it!! The location is perfect, Enrico the owner is so helpful and friendly, and there is actually a lot of personal space in the bunks for a hostel. It attracts interesting people who are mature and don’t just want to get wasted all day long, so it’s great for meeting travel companions and new friends. I would definitely stay here again!

    This hostel is in a brilliant location and a lovely place to stay to see the cool areas of Berlin. Just make sure you contact them before to arrange a check in time as the reception is not manned all the time. Enrico was very helpful and gave so many recommendations for things to do. It was quite quiet when we were there so we had a room all to ourselves. Also the 6 bed dorm is amazing with huge bunks with curtains. Bathrooms were big and everything was very clean.

    Lovely little hostel- very small only 2 rooms of 4 and 6 so not always busy but everyone was lovely. Definitely not a party vibe but sociable. Kitchen has an induction hob but no microwave but is definately usable. Would use again loved it

    This independent hostel provided comfortable accommodation for 2 nights. All on the ground floor so no need to carry cases very far. The staff were very friendly, kind and helpful, but do not expect someone to be on the front desk 24/7 (but the main contact for the hotel is only a phone call away if there is anything you need). It's a smaller hostel (≈10-15 beds total) for your stay, to suit travellers intending on spending their time out exploring the city rather than in their hostel room.

    Yeah it was pretty okay. The location was really nice, a short train ride from the city centre but also cool nightlife nearby. The staff were weird. I showed up, having emailed my arrival time prior to leaving as required, only to be told my stay had been cancelled because I hadn’t emailed. This was in spite of the fact that there was a welcome pack with my name on it on the table. It was infuriating that there was such an arbitrary rule. But I was allowed to store luggage there the day I left
