Shipotel Eastern has a total of 25 cabins in 1st class ( large cabins for 1 or 2 persons ) and 2nd class categories ( for 1,2,3 or 4 persons), all of which have en-suite bathroom & shower. Except our 4bed dorm that has a shared shower and toilets. Shipotel Western is located directly next to Shipotel Eastern, it has 18 private 1, 2 or 3-bed cabins with shared bathroom/shower facilities.
All cabins have two large windows, however Shipotel Eastern 2nd class have two portholes in each cabin.
Half of our cabins have a river view while the others face the colourful Berlin Wall; waterside cabins are on a first booked basis.
Feel free to follow-up with us, but we cannot guarantee the river side.

would definitely go again. It is not very social (obviously, cause there are max 4 people in the shared room), but you get a beautiful river view and a nice cabin with comfy bed.

Amazing location, we had a great time staying here. Easy to access trams/bus to go more central but there are so many bars/restaurants/clubs within walking distance. Was cool vibe being on a boat but not the most modern, bar wasn’t open whilst we were there unfortunately but the deck area looked cool! Staff (especially English guy sorry I can’t remember your name) were so nice and helpful, lots of cool recommendations. Would stay here again definitely!!

Very highly recommend. Super unique, and sitting by the water is so nice. The location/area is perfect. You're literally right in front of the East Side Gallery, so it's touristy enough to feel safe and comfortable, but not too touristy. You can always follow the river to navigate back to the hostel or out to Museum Island. If you go with reasonable expectations for a hostel on a boat, you'll be satisfied or even pleasantly surprised. You can drink the tap water (they must pipe it in?), the shower is fine,
