“Clean, but don't expect to be sleeping”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This hostel is about a 5minute walk from the Berlin Frankfurter Allee S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations, and there are plenty of shops and places to buy food from, including a couple of supermarkets. The neighborhood seemed to be quite safe, but the hostel is situated right next to the S-Bahn tracks, so if you get a room on the wrong side (East) of the building, you may be in for some sleepless nights - even with the window closed, the trains are very loud and they are very frequent, running throughout the night too. To check-in, you need to go to the Georghof Hotel which is next door to the Georghof Hostel. You will need to ask for the WiFi password here, and you will also be asked if you would like to purchase your bedsheets for €3! The hostel only provides a bed (with duvet/pillow), you must pay extra for your bedsheet, duvet cover, pillow cover and a towel. If you have a sleepingbag with you, you can get away with just using that and not needing to purchase the bedsheets. There are toilet and shower facilities on each floor, though when we stayed there was only 1 shower in service (for the whole building - others had no doorlock or no showerhead) and a couple of toilets were also out of order (one with no door at all). We ended up having to use the shower on another floor. However, all of the washroom facilities were very clean. The room itself was very big, and there was a common room in the building on the first floor with various cooking facilities (though we didn't use them so I don't know how good they were). There is a lift in the building, so if you have heavy bags you don't have to climb loads of stairs unless you want to. Although the hostel had a few problems, the building as a whole was very well kept.

Room Tip: You do not want to book a room on the east side of this building; the S-Bahn tracks are within 100me...

This is not a hostel at all!! It is clean, but very dull. On arrival the some what young women at the desk was rude and not helpful. She also had the nerve to ask me if I needed bed sheets! Well yes I did! And it cost me 3 extra euros, making this a 17 eu hostel, not 14 like was advertised.(cheeky if you ask me, all to get your sight listing further up the page!)

The "hostel" is 20 feet from the train line so you can imagine the noise. All the showers over flow and I had to resort to a shower in a stop start fashion. This hostel will want to make you top yourself !!! Biggest down fall is staff!

This hotel is comfortable and spotlessly clean. It's basic, but it is also very reasonably priced for Berlin. We paid an additional Euro 10 each for a very good continental breakfast. The service at reception was very efficient. The hotel is outside the city centre but the U-Bahn station is nearby which has regular services and you can be at AlexanderPlatz in 15 minutes. There is also a nearby S-Bahn that provides transportation to wider Berlin including a direct line to Schonefeld Airport. The hotel is in an interesting location in the former DDR, not far by train from the East Side Gallery and close to great cafes and bars just a 10-15 minute walk down Gurtelstrasse. Recommended for a cheap alternative in an expensive city.

Room Tip: A little noisy being so close to the S-Bahn and trams but if you can get a room overlooking the stre...

Georghof is a very beautiful hotel. The room is big, clean, decorated and very confortable. The bathroom is modern and has a great shower.
They offer free wifi and paid breakfast.
Despite not being so close to the center, you can easily take the metro to get wherever you want.

Last year stayed at the Georghof Hotel for two nights. We had a double room which was pretty spacious but not perfectly clean - there was a thick layer of dust on the topside of curtains.

When we arrived there was a blond girl(russian nationality?) at the reception and she was quite rude and unhelpful. On our second day was there a german girl who was nice and polite.

The area was ok. There was a big shopping centre nearby and some bars and coffee shops as well.

P.S. The really good thing at the hotel was their sauna.

The room was cheap. Location is pretty good. S-bahn passes by near, didn't bother me.

Coffee maker was dirty. Bathroom and bed was clean. Check-in took a bit long, because of reception mistakes. The room was really cold, slept in my sweate. Very bad Internet. Very bad. Cleaning person walked in while I was in bed.

Overall, the place is cheap. Disorganized in many ways. But the location is not bad. 2/5
