I stayed here in this hostel one summer for a few nights with a group of friends, it was really busy in the hostel but staff seemed friendly! The rooms were really basic, but clean which was the main thing. The great thing about this hostel is the location, it was just perfect for a few nights and exploring the city. I would stay here again, and I plan too.

Room Tip: Use the metro, so quick and there is a metro station just around the corner! Also it sounds basic bu...

This is by no means the best hostel in the world, but by no means is it the most expensive.

It is a typical, clean, reasonably well appointed hostel. What it does boast however, is possibly the best location in Berlin for sightseeing being within easy reach of Checkpoint Charlie and it's associated museums and the Brandenburg gate and it's associated attractions.

They also have an excellent 'left luggage' facility so you can fully exploit your time in Berlin.

The only downsides are that they charge a ridiculous sum for parking in the hostel car park and it is still one of the few hostels that require you to bring your own padlock, as opposed to the more familiar 'Euro in the lock' type.

The prices within the hostel (drink etc.) are fairly reasonable but the big saving grace are the great staff members we met, who seem to be able to communicate with equal propriety to all peer groups.

Yes, I would stay here again.

The service was terrible and all of the staff were so rude and ignorant, the whole hotel want very clean especially the rooms the showers in the rooms were very dirty and the food was also terrible.
All the windows I'm the rooms were very big and they could be open so far you could easily fall out of, it says there is internet in the hotel but there wasn't any internet then we asked if they could turn the internet on and they said no.

Staff are average, bit rude but that's some German's for you! Wifi.. possibly the worst ive ever had, was on a iphone, literally re entering the code every 2 minutes, but when it did work it was good, there was a games room.. with nothing in..., toilets in main reception had sticky floors.., we had a twin private room, bathroom was clean and reasonably good, shower doors terrible and couldn't have shower to powerful as it'd come out of the holder and go crazy, plenty of room in the room for clothes etc, bed's were good but stained and everything was stained... the towel's were stained all over. second night in the card to get in the room wouldn't work so had to get it replaced, overall its okay for what you pay for, would return just not the best, location is perfect! minutes away from everything major!

Overall this hostel was great- it was more like a hotel, we had our own kettle in our room, we had comfortable clean bedrooms and linen, breckfast was nice- lovely crusty bread (mmmm), and the location was great- 10/15 min walk from anywhere really. The only downsides was that the walls of the rooms are a bit thin and we had noisy neighbours, there was not many plug sockets, the staff were not the friendliest, and we could not seem to get the WIFI to work even with several codes. Overall, great hostel though!
