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.

Liked: Good location.

Disliked: There should be more bathrooms and showers. There were only one for 4 rooms. The check-in is at 4 pm - don't know why as the check-out is at 11 and there is not much to clean or tidy after the guests who left.

Customer review

29 September 2009

Liked: A cheap choice, with very good breakfast (€3,00) and good rooms. I was lucky the hostel was empty because they only had two bathrooms for each floor. The kitchen had a lot of facilities, but it seems that no one cleans it. The hostel didn´t have a bad location, but there are more central and cheap hostels that I would recommend.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
