    Lovely hostel with super clean, modern facilities and great value for money. I have to say the check-in process is quite inefficient - everyone has to fill in their details in a form at the reception desk and I don't think you can do it online beforehand. This resulted in a long queue. The hostel is a bit hard to find as well. You can’t see it on the street – you have to go into a passageway. It's also far from the city centre but the tram connections are fantastic. Great hostel overall :)

    We enjoyed our stay at the a&o hostel. The reception/main hall and our room was kept clean and we did not encounter any problems. The only thing that bothered us a bit was that the 4-room dorms are very small when compared to other hostels.

    Good hostel for price! Basic but has everything you need if you just want a bed and to explore Berlin. Kitchen very basic so didn’t cook in it. However the hostel is in the best location, also lovely courtyard outside to chill. Beds comfy and clean. Not much of a social vibe in the hostel, in terms of solo traveler’s, so wouldn’t stay here is I really wanted to meet people. Although I did end up meeting some nice girls in my room :-) but I think that was more luck

    Overall good stay, little bit far from the centre but train station close enough. Staff were nice. We liked the lay out of the room, we were in a room for 8 with a dividing wall down the middle and two bathrooms.

    Very Good

    The Good: - Fantastic location right beside Ostkreuz. - Good customer service by front desk reception. The Bad: - For whatever reason, this hostel is popular with kids' organizations, so be ready for lots of kids running around being loud. - I booked the Shared Dorm for Women (6) which was quiet enough, but the shared washrooms didn't come with a fan. So if you used the toilet right after someone else who took a dump, good luck.

    Wifi is like a tap with a sensor. Works while you hold your hands at it. There were two bathrooms in an 8 person room which is divided into two parts by 4. Which is fine. Two times durin my stay there was no cold water, just hot and boiling hot. The lock cards sometimes jus stop working. No comfortable couch to lounge outside the rooms. Cute lil block around.

    Hostel is fine and location is good. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere (there are common areas but not much going on) but I was there for one night only so I can’t really judge. What I really disliked is that I chose this place because it was the cheapest but I then had to pay an extra 3.5€ for bed sheets… this was unheard of and felt like a sad attempt at money grubbing. The facilities were nothing special but not too bad either, so I recommend this place for short stays to enjoy the neighbourhood!

    In short: Great location and overall friendly staff, but that's basically it. Poor cleanliness, guest kitchen almost non-existent, only two wall sockets in a dorm of six, usb outputs that didn't work, clogged toilet, the list goes on and on. Would not recommend.

    Blech. Don't go here. Overpriced and rude staff. Bad lockers. Not good charging for devices. Just kinda crappy. A&O is usually good but this one is managed poorly.
