"The hostel was in a good location, close to lots of good bars and clubs. Also very close to the train station so it was easy to travel to different areas of Berlin."

Liked: the location was in between everything - for culture during the day and nightlife. we all were able to get a room together and there was equipment available - eg iron, hairdryer etc

Disliked: sometimes the toilets weren't cleaned frequently and i felt a bit uneasy. In addition to this sometimes the showers were cold.

Liked: I liked the decor - all the floors are painted differently with well known characters - gave the place a nice feel. The breakfast in the morning is good too for 3 euros (buffet). I liked the little bar downstairs too, nice place to chill out.

Disliked: The hostel staff could have been friendlier - don't think they'd all heard of "service with a smile".

Liked: The atmosphere is pretty cool breakfast is 3 euro but is worth it.

Disliked: The only think i found very annoying and inconvenient was the fact that every time you step the wood floor will make noises so and the rooms for more that you tried to be quiet for those that were asleep he lockers and floor made a lot of noise.

Liked: Cheap rates by Berlin standards, nice common area, well located in an area full of bars, cafes etc. helpful staff, cheap drinks at their bar, free wi-fi ...

Disliked: The key system is really silly (one key for the whole dorm room) so you have to wait at reception every time you want to go to your room :S Plus you have to go through so many doors to get to your room... Also quite cold in my dorm as there were no curtains (!) and the heater wasn't working- really frustrating as there was also no hot water at all in the closest bathrooms, so I definitely wouldn't want to stay here in the middle of winter!!

Liked: very good location

Disliked: some of the stuff where really rude and unhelpful. We had booked a double room but got a twin room with seperate beds - not so fun for a vacation as a couple.... After a lot of fuzz we eventually got a double but had to change room in the middle of our stay. Anyhow the stuff didn´t handle it to well, they where rather irritated with us even thought it was there one mistake...

Liked: Great location, very close to great restaurants, bars, clubs and sights. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful when it came to giving advice on getting around Berlin and where to go.

Disliked: The kitchen was quite dirty and not appropriate to cook in, but saying that, it was fine for breakfast in the morning & food is so great/cheap in Berlin it wasn't a prohibiting problem.

Liked: Clean and non-smoking. Groovy area.

Disliked: staff on reception/bar had their own irritating way of ignoring guests/walking away mid-sentence. but i was told it was the Berlin way, so I can excuse that. still, I was pretty annoyed by this at times, and I am from eastern europe, where we are used to bad service. Also, the rental bikes are not in the best shape, although functional.
