“the coziest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I have never forgotten this hostel. The staffs and owner make the place so friendly, they are open mind. My only regret was I had stayed a few days and I didnt enjoy the amazing Berlin as I'd like to because I've remained most of the time in the hostel... Free breakfast and good location. ps actually I stayed in 10/2011

Okay so the buiding did look dodgy but honestly the hostel is so worth the four story climb. It was filled with really interesting people and was surprisingly cleaning with a very relaxed mood. The guys who run it are super nice and helpful. Plus such a bonus that it has a kitchen with a whole load of free food. I would 100% go back, it was great.

The first time I visited Berlin I was on my own and when I turned up at the ajar door to a dark corridor to Hostel Aloha the only thought running through my head was 'what have I done?'. Two flights (or so) up and I stepped into the hostel itself and immediately breathed a sigh of relief! It was warm and colourful, the staff were nice and showed me to my room. There are fairly large lockers, computers, wifi, bathrooms are pretty clean. I spent a very hungover day watching cartoons in the projector room picking from the dvd collectioon when I stayed. Everyone is really helpful and welcoming. The group was taken to a few bars in Berlin and I also made sushi with people there! Super chilled! There is a big Rewe supermarket 5 mins walk away and a vietnamese restaurant even closer - does really cheap vegan food

At first I was disappointed but the hostel grew on me and I ended up really liking it. At first the staff seem unfriendly but actually they are just very relaxed, the whole hostel carries that vibe. It was quite dirty, dusty under the beds and the kitchen wasn't clean, but the breakfast was fine, the location suited me very well, and the room was big with lots of space for my luggage. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for somewhere very cheap and can handle/enjoy strange experiences.

Room Tip: They offer rooms with 5 beds but actually these only have 4 beds.

This hostel had the friendliest staff and the most to offer for the guests. Free breakfast, free snacks and free coffee and tea all day! The staff give out maps and outline places to go. They help you get to know the city. The hostel was pretty clean and had a nice relaxed vibe to it. Plenty of internet and computers as well. The rooms were nice and were equipped with lockers that could fit fairly large bags. I would recommend getting a locker since there are not locks on the actual bedroom itself. I have stayed at this hostel in the past with no issues, but it's better safe than sorry!

The service was horrible. No one was ever at reception. The gavtity itself was alright although a little under kept but the hostel was through a convenience store with a poor lit, graffitied hallway- super shady. It's not close to anything at all either.

Fisrtly I truly want to say that yes, it was nice idea to stay here.
Nice place - good location, close to metro and cheap shops, two balconies - having a breakfast outside watching life and sun on streets are wonderful.
There are strange and weird pictures (but so many bright colours :)!) on the walls on first floor - but I guess this can be specific for this place and this suits.
Enough space in common area - however it would be rather comfortable and cosy if there were couple of chairs (or smth like that) in computer room. Also I think bedsides tables in dorms are also needed - because locker wasn't enogh to store things.
Nice breakfast! :) Free map and big variety of excursions.

And of course thanks to staff: hi from Moscow :) and thaks for advice and your help for discovering Berlin.

Room Tip: Living in 6beds female dorm was quite :) And it was possible to have a good sleep.
