    Staff : usually smiling and welcoming, can become robotic due to the amount of people passing by. Place : super clean, lots of places where to sit and rest in the common area + lots of plugs to charge your phone or use your computer with good wifi access in the whole hotel. Facilities : this is where the disappointment comes. Bed sheets are not included and you need to pay extra. If I come in a hostel, it is for its price and this is the first time I see bed sheets not included. Bad surprise

    Hostel facilities are great, it has anything you bed for a good night sleep. That being said the hostel was extremely understaffed which meant it took quite a minute to get served and then once you got served staffs were not the most pleasant of people. Would I stay here again? Probably but they need to employ more people.

    I found the a&o hostel a pretty good place to spend a couple nights for an affordable price. I did however end up waiting far longer than expected to check in because of under staffing, and to get a coffee, because of a faulty coffee machine. This ended up costing me a bit of my limited time in Berlin. Also, the staff assume you have your own bed sheets unless you mention otherwise. Overall though, I‘d say the affordability is probably worth the minor inconveniences.

    This is a hotel-style hostel, so don't expect activities or atmosphere. Hostel was clean, but there are no lockers in the rooms. Breakfast is not included at all in the price, and there is no access to a kitchen. Good for a good night's sleep though.

    Basically the hostel is cheap to stay at and they change you insane prices for everything else you do, and they cut every corner in the book. Also, if you have to go to the front desk for literally any reason, expect to be in line for at least 30 minutes because they are obscenely understaffed. This morning I also had the pleasure of waking up to picking a bug off of my hip in bed. Unconfirmed if it was just a small big bug or if it was a bed bug. Overall negative regrettable experience.

    Having stayed with A&O in Hamburg, I thought id stay again during my time in berlin. Big mistake! having worked as a customer experience manager for five years, I can honestly say I am utterly disgusted with the appalling customer service at this hostel. I have to say, I wish I never booked to stay here. The reception staff made me feel very unwelcome and wouldn't even make eye contact me, was just so so rude and it impacted my entire trip to Berlin. Continuously unhelpful and rude.
