    We had a great stay in this hostel. Everything was as described, we wouldn't change a thing. Location is perfect, you can use U+S Bahn or just walk to your desired place, it's 15 minutes walking to Brandenburg Tor and Alexanderplatz. Staff is very pleasant. We would stay again for sure.

    Had a pretty basic setup. My only complaints are that there were only 6 lockers in a 8-person room and only 6 sockets, three of which were located next to one bed. The location was perfect for walking into town and the staff were very friendly.

    Most of the staff were friendly and happy to help. The rooms were clean and everything looked great. The location is a bit out of the way. I enjoyed my stay.

    Pros: Lots of space to chill, comfy beds, good location near public transit & river, luggage storage Cons: Would have to insert key card several times before door would open, water in shower turns off every 30 seconds & you have to keep pushing it to turn on, only 6 lockers in 8 bed room, breakfast only served until 10am & not worth the money for what they give you, no kitchen, very big & feels more like a hotel Personally, will stay somewhere else in the future.

    Booked Hostel under old name Baxpax and were not made aware of any changes to the Hostel name which led to confusion on arrival. Perhaps having a few teething problems as staff didn’t seem confident or knowledgeable in what they were doing. ‘Continental breakfast’ of bread, ham, cheese and fruit was also not worth €5. Also disappointed to be told the rooftop bar advertised in pictures was from ‘the old hostel’ so feel images need to be updated. But rooms are very modern, clean and comfortable.

    I went here with a friend. Check in took 1 hour and the person in the lobby had to check our passports twice, which makes them look like amateurs. This hostel charges 2 euros for the towel and 8 euros deposit for it. Other hostels usually only have a deposit for the towel and usually it's not so much in deposit either. Another thing that could be improved would be the restrooms. The restrooms are divided by the rooms people are staying in, which means there is only one restroom per guest room.

    I booked my stay here when it was still under the old management (BaxPax) and I was very disappointed when it changed hands. It was too late for me to cancel my stay, so I sucked it up and stayed. This hostel does nothing to encourage socializing amongst the guests. There are no events planned. All of the staff were new, which was too obvious. I am a patient person, but to wait 10 mins for one person to be checked in is excessive. If you are a solo traveler, STAY AWAY. Also, no hand soap!!!!

    No blackout blinds needed due to partying. Rooms are hot and hard to cool. Shower has 30 second timer and then need to turn it on again. Guest turn up at 3am was loud and used main lighting to get ready to go out, this took 45 minutes. Came back at 7am and vaped in room. Drier doesn’t work. Lady didn’t refund towel deposit despite towel being returned due to the fact she couldn’t find it. Finally manager said she moved it and the lady just said that solves that after 30 minutes of searching.

    READ BEFORE BOOK. Bad experience staying here, would not recommend to anybody. The hostel is new, previously owned by Baxpax and bought out by St Christopher’s. The ratings and photos listed on hostel world ARE FROM THE PREVIOUS HOSTEL. The rooftop bar advertised DOESN’T EXIST. The staff were rude, inexperienced and when I asked questions they were blunt. Pool table was out of order for almost the whole duration of the stay because somebody took the white ball, no effort to replace it was made.
