    Excellent accommodation, only for one night but would stay again! Location is in residential area so very quiet at night, but also very close to main train station, so convenient for making travel connections and seeing the city.

    Great location, very close to Berlin's central train station making it very easy to travel around the city. Room was clean with modern decor, fairly spacious and beds were very comfy! Good atmosphere in the communal areas. Would recommend.

    Everything was lovely apart from the shower facilities: having one en-suite shower for a 6-person dorm means people who have to leave early wake up those who are sleeping in, and it means there’s a queue for the shower and no choice of picking a different shower to use. A communal shower room/bathroom would make more sense for the larger dorm rooms. Working area and reception area downstairs were good for working from. Breakfast was great, and the staff were very helpful.

    The staff preferred talking to each other over checking customers, very frustrating when you are lining up for extended periods of time

    Shower room was smaller than normal. Not enough staff to properly take care of long check in lines. Staff was nice though and did their best even though they did not have enough help.

    If you are just staying for one night like I did it might be alright, but for more I wouldn't recommend it. There are no lockers in the wrong, so nowhere to store your valuables, and it just feels like a hotel, with 8-bed rooms. It has a really good location, but there is many hostels in the area, so if I come back to Berlin again, I would pick another one.

    Let’s start with how rude the staff are. If you don’t speak German, they don’t care about you. extremely disrespectful. I watched the staff go from smiles and laughs to this rude attitude depending on the language of the guest. No real security, anyone can just walk in and out and around the hostel. There were kids running around screaming all night and the maid doesn’t really clean the room or bathroom - I watched her a few afternoon. only good thing is the location to the train station.

    Add fans or air conditioners in the rooms in summer. Couldn't sleep for hours while sweating

    This hostel was definitely the worst I have stayed in ultimately because it was summer time and they have no provision in the rooms to help keep guests cool. I passed a nightmare 3 nights with hardly any sleep in 30+° weather in a small room with 8 people and two windows that only opened to a few inches. If the hostel simply made a small investment to get large fans for the rooms then it would have helped the sauna like conditions.It is also about an hour's walk to any of the centre's locations.
