    The hostel is quite well maintained, neat and definitely worth the price. Supermarkets and other shops are in the vicinity. The kitchen is well furnished. The staff is also responsive to requests.

    The hostel is probably the cheapest in Berlin with a kitchen. In fact, it's so cheap there are permanent residents living at the hostel, they're very friendly and like to chat over a beer or two (or a lot more). It's close to the area RAW, which is cool to check out as well as the East Side Gallery. It's also located close to public transport, so getting to Alexandra Platz is no problem. The food served in the bar is also good and priced nicely. Overall a nice hostel for budget traveling.

    We had a lovely stay at the hostel! To my surprise, it was very quiet. We opted for a hostel instead of airbnb to increase our chances to meet people and go out but it was dead, which was a shame. Apart from that, the rooms, kitchen and bathroom were sparkling clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend if you're on budget, good location too.

    Very Good

    Definitely should mop the floors in the rooms more. They built a new bed in my room after first night stay but left shavings and grit on the floor; forcing me to buy sandals to stay clean! There is internet only in certain buildings; so not overall. I asked for a towel and got the greyest ugly hard towel with trash and blood spots on it! So I went and bought my own! No soap in the showers so had to buy my own! No one was there at checkout when i left 6am so had to leave keys with cleaning lady!

    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.

    Not a very good atmosphere for meeting new people and all the common areas are closed after 12pm. Also reception is in a restaurant around the corner so it's very confusing when you first get there.

    You shouldn't expect much for that price but we felt very uncomfortable in this hostel with the kitchen being occupied by weird people who gave us very odd vibes, bed sheets being super worn out with holes in them, especially considering we paid for them additionally, random people coming in and out, the fridge in the kitchen being very humid. We did, however, get a 5-bed dorm as a 3-bed private room, not sure if it's a plus though. The location is good, central, close to underground stations

    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.
