    A bit far from the city, takes a while to get there, but was very comfortable and chill. Not much space in the rooms, if people have lots of luggages. Still a great price and quality

    Very Good

    Overall our stay was a positive experience. We stayed in a private room for 3 and found the room / bath clean and suitable for our short stay. The location is one to be aware of if you are focussed on the central museums / Wall etc. as the hostel is a bit out and took about 25 mins or so to travel in. But the bus / train connections were frequent. Negatives - very limited space / facilities in self catering area, and the washing room only had one drier working and needed cleaning!

    I haven't really enjoyed any a&o stay. The place is fine if you need a last resort place to crash, but i would not recommend it elsewise. The place is bland, rooms are tight and boring. They do provide soap in the showers though which is cool

    Pay for what you get really, it’s out of the cbd, not enough staff to keep up with the cleanliness it needs day after day. Overall like I said, pay for what you get. Cheaper then most places around Berlin however.

    It is the cheapest that I found. But for this price, you expect a little bit more. For example, the beds don't have a locker and you have to use a locker room in the hall (paying an extra fee). Also, the girl in charge didn't leave me to divide the bill, so I had to pay all.

    The room was tiny and very hot, without air conditioning. Both room and bathroom were dirty. In the corridor there was a bad smell. I found a used condom in the bathroom so I pointed it out to the reception, but the staff was very rude and didn't help in any way. To use the guest kitchen (which is really dirty and not very functional) they required a deposit of 20 euro which I never got back because the staff didn't have the key to open the cashier deskt.
