Really good stay. As if I was between friends. Staff try to give you a good welcome. Help you in everything. The hostel is near the city center so you can visit Berlin only walking. Good hostel, good rooms, good price and above all, good people. I recommend this hostel without doubt.

This is probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff were super friendly and welcoming and really went out of their way to make sure all the solo travellers were mixing with others. There's a breakfast downstairs for 6.50euro when pre booked and it is an absolute bargain and definitely worth doing - such variety and means...

In the room there were bedbugs and when I told the staff they denied. Later when I came home, I was full of bites. The other man who was sleeping next to me also had bites. Unfortunately A bad memory of a good vacation

It was an awesome place to meet people! Really good place to be! The only thing, which needs improvement is the clear communication of the price policy, as the booking price DOES NOT include a fee for the linen (around 4 euro extra), which is MANDATORY: Everything else was really fine.

There was a friendly welcome, the rooms were clean and nice. We had a big room with six beds for our family. The bathroom and toilets were clean. The room was quiet. The breakfast was very good. The bar downstairs in the hostel is cozy.

Very friendly staff who were happy to speak in English. Twin room was clean and tidy as was the en-suite bathroom. The nearest metro station was a couple minutes walk and the Tempodrom was within a 10 minute walk if you are attending a concert there. Places like the Brandenburg Gate is about a 30 minute walk and Museum Island...

Pros: Very good location in Kreuzberg, 5min walk to the nearest U-Bahn station. Clean and tidy apartments, and lovely building. Good beer and shots at the hostel pub. Berlin technishe museum in 5min walk distance - worth seeing. Nice people at the reception (funny fellow Dario :) ) Cons: Shared bathrooms with only two shower places... can be a bit...

Stayed in a six bed room and appreciated not having bunk beds, much easier to get into your own single bed without disturbing the people around you! Very clean rooms and bathrooms, only problem is that there is not much privacy in the showers - nowhere to get changed separately from others. Other than this, I would highly recommend the...

We were a group of four staying in two double rooms. The location was good - easy to find by car, and close to public transport. Street parking on Tempelhofer Ufer was free (we arrived Friday night, left on Sunday afternoon). Also, there was no curfew so we could come and go as we pleased. The reception desk service was...

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
