    A good mattress and a clean bathroom for a decent price. Due to the fact that the hostel is very well located if you are flying from the Schönefeld airport (only one train stop away), people tend to come and go at all hours of the night so bring your earplugs. The rest of the people seem to be the party crowd. They won't let you get much sleep either...

    You get what you pay for. The location is excellent, the staff is friendly, but I had a clogged toilet during my whole stay (3 days) and I had given up asking the staff to fix it, and hearing from them that the cleaning lady would fix it next time she'd come to our room.

    Allgemein OK, gute Preis-Leistung. Sauber ist es auch. Atmosphäre ist halt nicht so geil, es wird auch gerade renoviert. Man muss halt wissen Schließfächer sind im Eingangsbereich nicht in deinem Zimmer, kostet 2 Euro. Bettwäsche und Handtuch kostet auch extra.

    Very Good

    It’s cheap so dont expect more than basics. The lounge is small and a bit dodgy. You need to pay for sheets and put them on yourself. No curtains or plugs next to the bed. Advantage is that the bathroom is in the room so not shared with many people and there are lockers but you need your own lock. The beds shake if you move and noise resonates in the room. Wouldn’t advice if you are a light sleeper. But all in all it’s cheap and okay for the price it is

    Typical German hostel next to a train station. No atmosphere, noisy but good location. Having to pay 4.5 euros for bedsheets was weird and even weirder was the fact that you could choose for forgo them. Unless you really need to get to Schoenefeld airport in 15 minutes, I would stay further inside the city where you can get a cheaper bed in a nicer hostel with a better atmosphere.

    The room and the bathroom were not very clean. Don’t have individual light or plug for each bed.

    This was just such a disappointment for €27 per night. Girl at reception was unhelpful and rude. After we went to go to the lift to get to our 4th floor room found that you needed a card to access the lift so had to go back to reception...surly if a guests room is on the top floor you would offer them a lift pass? No air con or even a fan in our 4 bed dorm (Was told by reception that this is not something they do in Germany? Ok). Would have been disappointed even if we’d have paid half the price

    I rate this low because it was not a pleasant stay at all. I have stayed in A&O before only because of the convenient location, but this last time was the worst stay in my life in a hostel. 2 men that checked in into our room late at night STOLE two laptops from us. Staff don't even ask for a photo ID when people check in so of course they can get away with it. Staff don't really help you at all or let us see the cameras.
