    One and only hostel I stayed in during my 3 week trip to Europe. Honestly better than some of the hotels I paid for! Staff is there 24/7. They were very nice and helpful. Fun area to hang out, play pool, chill at the bar. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm. It was quiet in the room at night which I wasn’t expecting and was very happy about. 5 minute walk to Berlins largest transportation/train station. A few restaurants also walking distance. Bathroom and shower were nice for a hostel. Enjoyed my stay.

    A very big hostel near Hauptbahnhof (good for late arrival/early departure). Good standards in cleanliness, comfy beds. Nice bar. Downside: bed linen 3,50 and towel 1,50 extra. No room for clothes in the room, no lockers in the room.

    The hostel is actually restructuring which wasn’t mentioned on the site (if I remember well). Dacilities like the guest kitchen and the usual luggage storage room were not available and the stuff seemed inexperienced and it took a long time with waiting lines at the reception.

    This hostel is pretty big, clean, and near the central train station (10-15 min walk). There were only four lockers for eight people and definitely not enough outlets (maybe 6 for the whole room and 1 in the bathroom). I met some awesome people in my room though! Not a bad hostel, just not the best one.

    Despite the name, the hostel location is actually quite a bit of walk from the Hauptbahnhof through a quiet residential area. As the Hauptbahnhof is also not near to most of the popular tourist sights (you'll need to take an S-bahn to get to most of them), one might be better off staying in a more central location such as Alexanderplatz or Friedrichstrasse. However, overall still reasonably priced and acceptable level of cleanliness.

    There were no lockers in the room, only in the lobby and had to pay. It's a large hostel with few people interacting in the lobby so it definitely doesn't have a youth hostel vibe. Anyone can enter the lobby from outside, which felt unsafe. The small kitchen was reasonably well equipped, though it lacked a good cutting knife. Clean building. Construction occurring outside as of 1/14/19. The bedsheet rental cost €3.50. Close to Hbf but in the opposite direction of all tourist attractions.

    Upon check-in no one mentioned that the floor we were put on was under construction. We were quite disappointed when we got to our room to see the corridor had no carpet/flooring and there were two men working all through the day and the night. We were woken up at 12am and numerous other times to banging and electrical tools being used. We complained and got shifted to another room and given two days of free breakfast which was really good but overall I didn’t think it was worth the money!
