Location is decent but not too central, 15-20 minute walk from the main shops/tourist attractions. I wouldn't bother walking to the main area for bars/clubs as it is too far away.

The value of the hostel was not great at all, quite pricey in comparison to others. The hostel has a very commercial feel to it. Everything has to be paid for. You must pay 2 euros to rent a towel, 5 euros just to use the washing machine, 1 euro 70 for a cup of tea. There are no facilities that are simply free to use. The drinks at the bar were also quite pricey, 3 euro 70 for a bottle of Berliner Pilsner.

The hostel has a vibe that is very similar to a sixth form college in the UK. There are decent facilities with regards to outside seating, both in the front and back of the hostel. There is a table tennis table in the front, a deposit is required to use this which is fair enough. Bicycles can be rented at a price of 10 euros per day with a 50 euro deposit on each bike.

We stayed in a four person private room with an en suite, which was incredibly basic. There were four beds and two chairs in the room, and that is all. I have been looking through pictures showing stereos, TVs etc but our room was very basic facility-wise. Our room was at the front of the hostel, and a lot of light came in as the curtains are too small and thin.

The bathroom was very basic, there is no hand wash or any other small touches that you might find in other hostels. The cleanliness of both the room and the hostel in general cannot be faulted whatsoever, everything is very clean and fresh looking. The rooms do seem soundproofed which is a nice bonus.

The staff were quite friendly and helpful in general.

All in all, a very commercial feel to this hostel. It was not informal at all in the way it is ran, very money-orientated. Very clean and very basic, especially given that this hostel is pricey in my opinion, and does not have a fantastic location. Would not be returning.

Room Tip: There is no choice of rooms, you get what you are given.

I was pretty impressed by this place. I stayed in a single room and was surprised by how big it was-it had a huge bathroom and even a TV! Much more hotel feeling than hostel. The location is great and for the most part pretty quiet, though in the morning my room was right next to the luggage room and supply closet for the staff so the noise was a little annoying. You wouldn't have this problem on another floor. Staff was friendly, wifi good and breakfast was standard German. Overall I would recommend this place.

This is more like a hotel than a hostel. Unbelievably clean, very comfy but high beds and great value. Not much atmosphere if one is looking for a party but otherwise faultless. There's even a garden and we got an unexpected free breakfast and a free beer!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I stayed in a 6 bed girl dorm which was of a very high standard. Comfy beds, great decor and very quiet even during peak time. The bar is great with a lovely cosy fire. The location is perfect and a stone throw away from many fabulous restarants. Recommend the Vietnamese down the road. The guy tried to short change me whilst buying drinks in the hostel, so worth keeping your beady eye on that aspect.

I have been to many hostels and hotels in many countries but this one seems to be one of the best. We stayed in a private room ensuite. It was very clean and modern, with a nice desígn. The whole building was very well renovated with a nice and lively atmosphere. Even if you are looking just for a place to sleep it is good when you can enjoy the time there, not just survive the night. The prices are very good. The neighbourhood is great, too. Many nice bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes, a lot of night life and a walking distance (20-30 minutes) to the centre. We rented bikes in the hostel for most of the days. I really like Berlin and staying in Pfefferbett Hostel made it even more enjoyable.

We had a room for four. It was the first time I stayed in a hostel and I liked the experience very much! The room was warm, bed comfortable, bathroom clean and breakfast was very good. No unwanted noise at night. Just by the subway. A lot of places to eat nearby.

Room Tip: Fourth floor room for four - very good one
