I would not go back! Actually, it's a bar with rooms above. The rececption is on the counter bar, the breakfast is very unorganized and the internet, when it works, it is only in the reception / bar, then you have to get in the middle of the mess to be able to use the wi-fi. The advantage is that it is next to Alexanderplatz.

The location of this hostel is great. Public transport at the door, and so many things to see within walking distance.

The dorm itself was spacious and clean, with plenty of windows, a nice view, and not a lot of noise from the bar or the street below.

The showers had consistent hot water and water pressure, and were some of the best, most reliable hostel showers I've come across. The bathroom floors were very slippery though, and bath mats would be a helpful addition.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and always offering advice and assistance no matter how busy they were. During the day, the bar is a great place to sit and relax, use the internet, and pick up advice for your travels.

A real gem on the hostel market, St. Christopher's Inn on Rosa-Luxembourg strasse is in the inner eastern side of the city and very close to Alexanderplatz and a subway (U bahn) is just outside the hostel with tram and S bahn notc far away. I stayed in a 8 person dorm/room. Clean, secure and all amenities available like showers and toilets. The main bar/check-in area was quaint and comfortable with free wi-fi and cheap meals from an adjoining restaurant at value for money prices, especially the after1000am breakfast that was an added extra to my booking for only 4.95E. The staff were from all over the world, and were obviously well interviewed for their experience in providing great down to earth hospitality. They were all very open people who loved to chat, while working hard to keep the place running effectively and efficiently.
Only criticism is that the computers available for web/internet were playing up and not operational and weren't fixed properly in the ten days I was there in Berlin. But there was a net cafè very close and dirt cheap recommended by staff.
I also spent two nights in a room for two. It was very comfortable and clean with access to a shared bathroom and kitchen for two other twin share rooms. No complaints there and it was a nice break from the share rooms/dorms.
4/5 from me.

The hostel was very clean and close to the subway. They had a nice bar with food. Every night they had drink deals and food specials. Even though they had a bar you could not hear It from your room. The workers were very knowledgable and nice. I would recommend it to my friends and would stay there again!

We've stayed here twice now & thoroughly enjoyed it both times! The location is fantastic,within walking distance of many attractions & lots of good restaurants; plus there's even a U-Bahn stop right outside. The rooms are clean & spacious, the bar downstairs is cheap & serves decent food too.

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.
