This hostel/hotel was incredible! The staff are very nice and they will help you with advice on where to go or what to do. They also have brochures around the hostel that appeal to many different visitors such as those of a club crawl, a pub crawl, dance clubs, meditations, walking tours, etc. So if you go to Berlin without a clue of what to do, the staff and the resources are at the hostel.
The building itself is very cute, keeping in mind that this is a youth hostel. There is a "playground" which is closest to an arcade with a pool table, a foosball table and some other neat things. There is an outside eating area or the garden I believe which is just great if you want to sit outside to relax. I believe there is also a pool but I went during winter season so it was not open yet.
There is a restaurant/bar connected to the hostel and even though food is not automatically included, you can always order food there for a rather fair price. About 5 Euros for some bacon and eggs with orange juice is a way better bargain than going out for breakfast.
Now for the rooms; I stayed in a 3 person studio apartment and it was magnificent. There were three big beds, very comfortable with fancy pillows. We had a mini kitchen, complete with a stove, microwave, mini fridge, and a sink. We had a nice view from the 4th floor and everything was very complete. However, the only one complaint I have about the layout of the room is the bathroom. The walls are slightly slanted because of the architecture of the building, so there is no standing room in the shower if that makes sense. So if you're a person that prefers to take a bath, this room would be absolutely perfect for you. However, I prefer showers so let's just say that the bathroom was usually soaked by the end of a shower.
Besides that little detail, the service was fantastic, the rooms were wonderful, the location is spot on, and walking distance from so many things, (you could walk to check point charlie from the hostel!), and it was just a good place to rest your head.
I would definitely come here again if given the chance.
