    The experience was more than good. The staffs were very polite. They even guided us patiently to the nearby tourist attractions. The room was very clean. The beds and blankets were neat and hygienic. Overall a very great experience

    The hostel had some issues with their hot water system - however, it was winter and snowed the night I arrived so I imagine this was the cause. The hostel was perfect.

    Can't argue with the location. Right in the middle of all the bars and cafes of Friedrichshain, near Ostkreuz and Warschauer StraBe for great transport links, this is a very good place to be. I paid for an 8 bed dorm, and each one is divided in 2 with a bathroom per 4 beds, but most of the time I was there no one else was in my bit so I basically had a bathroom all to myself. Lockers, powerpoint (USB) in bed. Even have a vending machine for essentials like soap/toothpaste. Would stay again

    Great value. 4-person room is tiny but the private bathroom is modern & renovated. This hostel uniquely has a large back courtyard which was nice & quiet. A lot of school groups during my stay. I had 2 friendly young roommates. Location is central Friedrichshain though closest S-bahn is 8 mins away. 2 male staff were not a unwelcoming vibe. I went to reception 4 times because of card issues because they kept programming my card wrong. But the young woman receptionist is awesome.

    Staff were great! It's 24/7 so there's always support. The area outside has wooden benches like a little patio, so it's cozy and cute. People were normal and nice-seeming. The only thing that kind of put me off was the creaky floors in the hangout area, in front of reception. Feel like that would be an easy fix to an annoying and disrupting sound. Other than that, they have foosball and a billiards table. Can't complain.

    Very Good

    A very nice and quiet place, the building is huge so I got lost (I couldn't find the lift, luckily another guest took me there, there were no signs to find it). Bed sheets and breakfast are not included. In my opinion it is to expensive considering the not included services and the location (not central at all).

    If you’ve come here to get any sleep, just know that you won’t. The people staying there were extremely loud throughout the night. I actually didn’t sleep there and went to stay over at a friend’s place . I’ve been to many hostels before where it was considerably loud but nothing like this. Never again

    The hostel was confortable but the location was not the Best. The worst part was that the chargers for the phones in the beds didnt work. 👎

    They even charge you for the linen (3,50€) plus additional tax. There are a lot of sketchy people, we had a really aggressive guy in our dorm, slamming doors. Way to hot in the room with people turning heating on 5. When I arrived there was a used mask & other rubbish still on my bed. The room smelled horrible and the bathroom was really dirty. Also there are literally no bathrooms in the building expect for one in the room & one in the lobby building. Probably my worst hostel stay ever.
