This hotel which is located in a very good location (right beside the Berlin central station), does have several draw backs. Be aware that although it calls itself a hotel it is meant more like a hostel catering to teens and backpackers rather a true hotel. For its centrally location versus its price, this is not a bad choice to stay in while in Berlin, however if your requirements involved more than just location and price, then read on...
The room we booked to accommodate four is very very small. Two sets of tiny bunk beds placed in a tiny room which leaves little space for luggage for one person let alone four. Bathroom is of descent size and cleanliness but don't expect a bath tub. One huge drawback if you are afraid of the heat during summer months, the rooms are non-air conditioned and could get stuffy after a while. The lower bunk beds were made but the uppers were not. We had to make our own beds after we arrived.
Wifi is advertised as included but signals are very weak from within our room. The lobby feels like a high school hallway with teens and kids screaming and running around. Paid continental breakfast is available in the morning.
Pros: Convenient and close to Berlin HBF
Cons: Tiny non AC rooms, it's a hostel more than a hotel. Meant more for backpackers.

The hotel is thus ideally positioned for exploring the whole city. The panorama roof terrace affords spectacular views of Berlin. Our international guests benefit from free WiFi and meet up in the lobby, hotel bar, guest kitchen and the gaming area in a relaxed atmosphere. What more do you want? ... more less
