    It's a great location. It's more like a family hostel than a budget backpacker hostel. I didn't like that they charge extra for sheets. It seems unhygienic when people don't buy bed sheets. Would be nice to have an open kitchen and not charge 20 Euro for deposit for one hour use. Seems complicated. All in all good value for price.

    the receptionist was horrible. we arrive at mid night me and my friend and when we discovered that we were allocated into different rooms we tried to ask her to put us into the same room (specially that hostel was not that busy and that there were empty beds in both rooms of ours) but she was very arrogant and didn't even listened to us and before we finish our request she declined it unrespectfully.

    This was a nice hostel in a good area. Well connected. I wish the bathrooms were outside the rooms because morning and night people were accidentally waking each other up. Would recommend for solo travelers or people with a younger vibe looking to experience the nightlife.

    The stuff removed the bed sheets from the bed of my friend and took also her towel. The result was that another girl prepared the bed, and when we come home and went to bed the girl woke up my friend that was sleeping in the bed at 2 am demanding her bed. Such situations should not happen.

    The rooms were not cleaned everyday. The receptionist in the morning was kind of rude and not very helpful. But the one at the later part of the day was nice and helpful.

    The location is nice and the facilities are simple, but sufficient & clean. However, our room was on the top floor & incredibly hot with no option to get some ventilation inside. Open windows did little help. One of our sinks was clogged & nobody fixed it until the end of our stay, although we reported it immediately on day 1 of our stay. Regular water bottled did not fit under the faucet so you always have to carry up ypur own drinking water. We were charged 3,50 extra for bed sheets.

    My phone got stolen on the first day in Berlin, I needed to go home and wanted some reimbursement for my 9DAY STAY. Nobody at the reception wanted to help me by sending an email or making a phone call to a manager to discuss this. The only guy who was trying to help me was a guy working in security really friendly guy, they should make him responsible for front of office he spoke fluent English, French, German. Which can't be said for the rest working at the reception.

    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.

    1) although it was said that "all taxes are included", a significant surcharge was added on site. 2) the check-in took an extra long time. my reser. was not found, an other solution only at an additional cost, for all conceivable and normally self-evident things such as bed linen, wardrobe, towel, a fee was charged contrary 3) the toilet in the rooms ran through the whole night, the shower was dangerously hot, the beds were dirty with beverage waste and very saggy, bedridden upstairs had fun..
