Berlin's got it all – nightlife, culture and history – and Schlafmeile Hostel is the perfect home-away-from-home to experience this vibrant city.

You can also put your feet up in the common room. For those itching to get out and explore, good news – trams and trains are all on our doorstep. We'll give you a free city map to get you started, and we also offer free walking tours and bike rentals.

The nearest U-Bahn and S-Bahn station, Frankfurter Allee, is an 8-minute walk away. You can get to us in 50 minutes from Berlin Tegel Airport via bus and train, and from Berlin Central Station in 15 minutes on the train.

Our brightly painted private apartments and mixed and female-only dorms come with storage lockers big enough for a medium-sized backpack. Some rooms have an en-suite bathroom. Reception is open until midnight if you need to ask any questions or hire a towel, and there's no curfew to worry about.

    I have enjoyed my stay at the Schlafmeile! The staff is open and knowledgeable about the city and things to do and they all speak English! The hostel is located in a neighborhood called friedrichshain which is central to the best art and nightlife scenes in Berlin. There are several grocery stores within walking distance! Not to mention all the diverse bars and restaurants in the Area!

    It was an interesting place and the overall staying was quite good. What I enjoyed most was the autonomy that one enjoy there (the multiple entrances permit people not to face other people or staff each time one gets in or out). The stuff was very, very nice and the joint-with-the-hostel café is absolutely wonderful. I’ll definitely be back... sometime in January.

    I had a good time at the Schlafmeile Hostel. The only thing I had trouble with were my roommates who were quiet noisy in the mornings. But this can happen everywhere. It is good to always remind all guests to take care of each other and respect each others sleep. Thanks for the overall good time at this hostel:)

    Very Good

    Very nice and laid back staff in a very affordable place. If you want to be a top clean place and some quiet you will probably not get it here. Many of the rooms are placed right against the street with doors leading out, so the rooms are very loud. If those are none of your concerns, it’s a good place to stay for a while. Beds are fine and the attached restaurant/bar has good simple food and wonderful hosts.

    Really odd place. Guy on the desk was friendly to start, then 15 mins later started verbally abusing staff while I was in the room (F*** this, f*** that). Access to room and kitchen were separate, and both off the main road that had trams going past at all hours of the night. Was a bit of a maze finding my way around internally too. But kitchen was good and they recycled, so that made it better. And in the arsty part of the city, so some pretty cool buildings nearby too

    I felt unsafe, people walking past trying to get in. Knocking at the doors and windows. Bathrooms we're always dirty, even when they'd just been cleaned. Dorm opens onto road. Never met such disrespectful guests, no rules in dorms, one guy watched movies without headphones until 3am, ate all his meals in his bed, stinking the room, fought with his girlfriend. Kitchen was good, fridges need cleaning. New Zealand tokenism was disrespectful, and racist.
