Liked: The staff and the services we're top notch. There's an ATM in the lobby and even a bar (which won't accept credit cards).

Disliked: The private ensuite did not include a private shower or a private bathroom. The shared facilities did not impress me at all. WiFi was only available in the lobby and it didn't work with a VPN.

Liked: It is clean and everything has a high standard, a big plus is the bar. When traveling alone it's very easy to get in contact with other travelers there.

Disliked: The fact that you have to use almost half an hour to get to Stadt Mitte makes the location very poor, but I can imagine that for swimming teams and school groups this is a perfect place to be. The showers should be fixed on, changing between really hot and cold water it was not a very pleasant experience.

Liked: the ambient, the bar, the people

Disliked: The very repetitive music in the main room (turbin), the absence of shower/toilets in the 8-dorm room. The outside area is quite nice too and it's a pity it was never open in the afternoon, only in the evening.

Liked: Clean, good bar and huge common area with loads of plugins and decent internet. Good helpful staff, although there's almost always a wait to talk to them. Place was clean.

Disliked: Not a great location, have to take transport everywhere. LOADED with drunk, loud, and obnoxious groups of high school kids. Really annoying. Rooms and beds are very basic with semi-comfortable beds. The place is HUGE, more like a hotel, not a good atmosphere for solo travelers. Bathrooms and toilets were far from my room. There are better places to stay in Berlin, trust me, find a place with a good atmosphere unless you're a drunk English high schooler.

Liked: The stuff was unbelievably friendly and welcoming. They compensated well for the many drunk Berlin visitors and the only 2 elevators for 7 packed floors. So if you want to be well situated, pay little and aware of booking an extremely huge and anonymous place, I highly recommend this place!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: rooms and bathrooms were clean, but .. (see below) you can take as much as you want at the breakfast bar, the yoguhrt and jam were ok, but ... (see below)

Disliked: bathrooms were clean but very smelly, somthing wrong with the plumbing maybe... only two showers with door others with curtain. in male's bathroom only curtains, no hairdryer. There are men that might like to dry their hair, too. we booked an 8 bed dorm but were put into a 14 bed dorm which was separated into three rooms, one with 8 beds but we did not get those but had to separate our group into two rooms. apparantly, this was hostelbookers fault, sorry to say... Most of the breakfast was not very good. The coffee basically is watery foam. Didn't try the salami and ham but it didn't look very appealing. Last but not least, the area is rather dodgy than trendy. I suppose the trendy part of Prenzlauer Berg is not too far from the hostel but when you getting off the metro I felt a bit queasy...

Liked: It was relatively cheap and checking in, out and coming and going at will was no problem.

Disliked: The storage lockers are way over priced and the rooms did not feel particularly secure (elevator access is unrestricted so anyone can go to your floor and just wait outside a door or knock and say they forgot their key card).

Liked: Extremely clode to Landsburger Allee metro station, very friendly atmosphere. The noise from all the partying at the bar can barely be heard from the living areas, which is awesome. Very friendly staff, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Best part- You don't have to change your own bed linen- it's done for you! :)

Disliked: The bathrooms were a bit chaotic and smelly. The shower area is too small...

Liked: Nice and modern hostel. Big common bathrooms, though a bit of a walk from my dorm room. Located right next to a S-bahn station and at least when coming from Schönefeld airport, you can take a direct train! A nice bar downstairs with quite cheap beer. Very cheap at least during the winter! Pretty okay breakfast for the price. Also several different size lockers next to the reception to leave your bags if your flight/train leaves in the evening after check-out time.

Disliked: The wifi only worked in the lobby and restaurant and it kept kicking me out all the time. It's a bit far from the city center, but reachable with public transportation. I didn't like the showers, very small and not much space for your stuff. The lockers in my room were all a bit broken, or the doors didn't close easily bc of twisting. There were some noisy school kids there. I had some problems with my keycard, but this isn't the only hostel with that problem(and I don't keep the card close to my cell phone in the bag or anything). The bed seemed to make a squeeking noise most of the times when I turned a bit, it was a bit annoying.

Liked: The building is very close to the Sbahn stop. The room was very clean and so were the bathrooms. The showers were hot and the blowdryer in the bathroom was appreciated. The outside food and drinks policy was not strictly enforced and there was a lot of space.

Disliked: The hostel was far out from the city center (required a transfer and took about 30 min from the train station) and could get a bit noisy because of all the school groups.
