“Very nice hostel ”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Comments based on a double bed private room ensuite.

What I liked:
Very clean, close to the main train station, good price, free Internet on the lobby, hot water anytime on the shower.

What I didn't like:
No free Internet in the room (come on, it's 2014), a bit noisy (people running around at night). Could have a bit darker curtain in the room window.

But we loved our stay. It's quite handy for us to stay close to the station and, most importantly, it was a pleasure we could look forward to go at the end of the day.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

AO Berlin is the cheapest hostel in Berlin, but worth it! Located near from the station, it was like 10 minutes walkin. I paid 9,5€ for a night in room with 8 beds. You can save your luggage for free inside a room in the lobby or pay 2/4€ for security box. Wifi is available in the lobby. The room was clean and their have hair dryer in the bathroom. If you travelling to Berlin with minimum budget, you can try this hostel :)

Stayed here on a weekend trip to watch German Football. We were a bit concerned as we walked from the station to it when we realised it was both hostel/hotel. nothing to worry about though as the room was comfortable with plenty of hot water. Convenient location for the station and walked to the Reichstag and Brandenburg gate.

We visited the hostel twice in December and it was a great choice. With 5 mins walk from the main station and compact but cozy rooms makes this hostel a perfect place if you dont want to travel around the city with a huge luggage. Only disadvantage (but of course the hostel can't be blamed form it) is the pavement on Lehrter street, not comfy at all for huge suitcases. Anyway, breakfast was satisfying, service was Ok, we could leave the luggage in the special room before the check in time.

I stayed at A&O for 2 nights to have a bed to sleep in before I went couch surfing for a couple weeks. I even decided to 'splash' out and pay for a hotel room instead of staying in one of their hostel rooms. Many reviews mentioned the young, loud groups of students coming through so I had this expectation going in. What I wasn't expecting was the loudest, and rudest people to be the staff. When check-out isn't until 10 am, why are rooms being cleaned loudly at 8:45 am? If you need to say something to a fellow staff member down the hall, please just go to them and do not yell down the hallway. This is common manners I would expect from anybody else at a hotel, let alone the staff. When I mentioned this to the hotel, that the staff shouldn't be banging on walls, having conversations and vacuuming before people have even woken up they barely even acknowledged it and said "they didn't understand"... and yet they were fully capable of understanding me when I wanted a late check-out, where the breakfast room was, where a convenience store was etc... the moment I seemed to have an issue with something, the staff all the sudden "didn't speak english". On top of that, if you want a hostel/hotel with this many rooms, have the appropriate number of staff to deal with it. Any time I needed something I had to wait in a queue, usually of a big group of students, and that's assuming a staff member was even there. If someone just wants to ask a simple question like, "do you sell adaptors?", they shouldn't have to wait in a line of 20 people wanting to check-in. If you are selling other amenities, have someone there to do it who doesn't also have to check in every person that walks in. They seem to be trying to fit in as many things as possible that will make this hostel/hotel look great on a website, "free breakfast, tons of rooms, wifi, hygiene products, ATM, bar, food..." and yet it is rare that any of these things is properly managed at all. So although the room I had was actually alright, I would have preferred to spend 50 euro at a hotel where my biggest annoyance was other guests, not the hotel staff.

I have been in A&O in Berlin and Wiena and I am sutisfied. All that hotels+hostels are built in the same style. It is huge and it takes a little time to get into your room :D Don't get lost! But equipment is really new, there is hairdryer in the bathroom and soap in the shower. Everything clean for a reasonable prices. But dont believe to hostels which say thea are near to stations :-D
