St. Christopher's Inn Berlin

Reviewed 11 May 2014

The facilities at this hostel are actually really good (i.e.. beds with curtains, good pillows, clean) but there are a few practicalities that really let it down. Some of the staff are just plain rude (some others are really helpful, guess its luck of the draw). Wifi was terrible - not available in the rooms and hardly ever even worked in the common area). Has a really good bar but it is really just full for soccer games and thats it. If you arent up for drinking one night there isnt any other common area to hang out. Also had my wallet STOLEN whilst sitting in the bar. That being said the place has potential and is in a good location. We had a room on courtyard and it was super loud so had trouble sleeping - even with earplugs.

This hostel was well equipped and had all the facilities you need. It was in a great location, reasonably priced seeing as you got an awesome free breakfast and very clean. The bar downstars was great, drinks were reasonably priced as well as the food which was tasty. They also had really fun specials each night. It was also a great place to meet people, especially if you are traveling alone. I also found staff to be very friendly and helpful.

The location is good and you get what you pay for. It's good value for money. Nice and young staff. It's a hostel with all that goes with it. A lot of teenagers, bar, loud music and alchool.
The reception is at the bar, it's a bit confusing. The breakfast is free but don't expect much more than bread and milk. The rooms are good but could use a litlle make over. No wi fi in the rooms.

My girlfriend and I stayed here. The bar and restaurant has a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Our private room was great! The hostel was located right outside the subway stop and was walking distance to the German Beer Hall.

Hostel was very conveniently located right outside the train station, and 25 mins walk from the Brandenburg gate. There are lots of restaurants nearby.
The room was clean, but there weren't enough plugs. Showers and toilets were also clean. Room had lockers, but bring your own padlock. Towels were 1 euro.
Staff were nice.
The reception is a bar, so it got very crowded and noisy in the evenings. The "chill out" area is just an upstairs extension of the bar so it's also very noisy.
There's only wifi in the bar and it was really bad, a few times in the evening I couldn't even use whatsapp because it was so slow.
The bar had good food though and really cheap. The breakfast in the morning was standard cereal and toast, but for the price was good

It is above a bar (where people who stay get good food and drink discounts). It is set up a lot like college dorm style. It is clean, noisy, and fun. Lockers available for each bed. Free breakfast was a little skimpy but free!

Room Tip: My friends and I asked for an all girls room, and we were put in a back apartment-style room. It was...

I stayed for 3 days and really liked the hostel and its facilities!! It's really good located and has a near underground station. The Internet was really bad though and there's not a proper reception, the reception is a bar.
