“Very cheap, great staff, close to KuDamm, S Bahn and U Bahn”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

The hostel has a lot of rooms and beds so feels a little commercial, but for 10€ a night in a dorm bed, it's hard to complain.

The common room/kitchen/dining area feels very warm and inviting and people who work here are generally friendly and extremely helpful. They hand out maps, help you plot your public transportation, give you a "mini tour" of the hostel etc.

The location, while not exactly "Ideal" for Berlin, is good for exploring the Western part of the city, and there are S-Bahn and U Bahn stations in the immediate vicinity. The Helensee S Bahn station is also a stop for some very convenient bus routes. Just ask the reception for info!

Guests have kitchen access and there is a cheap supermarket just a few metres away!

Very clean and comfortable place to stay, but people working there are greatest asset. very helpful with everything. The Lady who owns the place is very enthusiastic and treat You like family, very attentive listener. Location is perfect, across the street sizable food store open till 10 pm. Functional internet in all rooms, peace and very not intrusive atmosphere. Very large and welcoming lounge room where You can party yourself till morning without affecting resting people. Rooms do not stink!

I just returned from my long weekend in Berlin. A couple of different friends had stayed in this hostel, and told us it was good, which was the sole reason we booked it.
We got there at about 5 o'clock in the evening, which was a little late, but we were welcomed with a warming smile. The lady offered to speak to us in English, but we were okay understanding the German.
She took us to the reception area and asked if it was our first time in Berlin, it was. She then got a map out and started explaining lots of different things to us: the location of the hotel, the different parts of Berlin, how to travel and what was near to us. It went on for some time and was very informative! She gave us information on how to travel by bus, Ubahn, and Sbahn.
The Bus was about a 4 min walk down the street, with the snow it was taking us a little longer. The S bahn stop I'd say about 12 mins... But it's an easy walk, no hills or anything.
The room was bright and very quirky, with a michael Jackson figure painted on the wall!
On our first night we got no sleep. The people in the room next to us were laughing and banging all night, and this of course was annoying... The walls did seem to be paper thin.
The second night was better, but they were still up most of the night laughing, which woke us up once or twice.
There is a kitchen with a fridge to keep food in, and 3 supermarkets really close to you.
There was lots of information on the walls about where to go in Berlin including top 10 bars, restaurants, tourist sites, and even Flea markets, and Christmas markets.
I would recommend this hostel to anyone, and hope to be going back there next year.

Really nice and familiar atmosphere. Clean and cozy rooms. Showers really clean and super good!!!! Nice staff, good value. Free internet. Calm nights, no noise. It's a bit far from the S-Bahn, but it's ok. Like 10 minutes... If you have no problem to walk it's no problem. I liked staying there. Would stay there again, sure!!
