Liked: Location

Disliked: Almost everything, the Baxpax Downtown Hostel is the worst hostel I have ever been too, a few of the reasons: -There is no a single picture of the dorm I stayed in, the k- studio, they not mention either that it is on the basement, below a terrace where there is a lot of noise at night; being on a basement, the room has no windows, so you have to rely on a low quality light fixture to see, mine was broken hostel staff didnt care, i had to use my phone too see at all hours. - Because of an error from the staff I had to change beds 3 times during the same day. - the smell in the room was terrible, like smelly feet, maybe because it is on dark basement without any flux of fresh air. - No air conditioner in the whole hostel, from the lobby to rooms, I went there in early August, the city was incredibly hot and so was hostel. - No kitchen - Only two showers. - Not much social opportunities to interact with other travelers. - I "lost " 2 shirts, a towel, a lotion and a brand new contact lens solution. - You cant use the usb ports from the computers, so you cant download/upload any of your pictures. - Overall it was a terrible experience, there are much nicer hostels nearby for the same cost. I will never stay in this hostel again.

Liked: Location! It's super close to the big ticket tourist sights like the TV tower, alexanderplatz and museuminsel; and the main railway station. The staff are great, from the receptionists who printed my eticket to the cleaner who unearthed my phone from my bedsheets - super professional and helpful. I stayed in the massive 21 bed dorm and was pleasantly surprised to find it a restful one :)

Disliked: No kitchen, but there was a reasonably priced cafe in the hostel and random food places a short walk away

Liked: The location is good. Roof terrace, bar, terrace. The concept is good

Disliked: The staff is slow and knows little of activities in berlin (theyve send us to the wrong place twice) The room and bathroom are clean but 1 toilet/shower/sink is way too little for 8 people. And the bathroom is badly ventilated so its a sauna. They have a roof terrace but youre not allowed to bring your own drinks/food so you might just as well go to any other bar, its not really part of the hostel. Breakfast is really expensive (6,50). One other thing which is more about your own preference, theyre a lot of people staying in this hostel (mainly english) just to party and not to see the city of berlin. So you might want to bring some earplugs if you want to catch some sleep.

Liked: Fantastic and central location - an easy 2 minute walk from Oranienburger Strasse S-Bahn station, or a 15 minute walk to the Unter den Linden. There are no cooking facilities for dorm stays, but there are plenty of restaurants and little bars along Oranienburger Strasse, and if you're lazy, the cafe/bar downstairs serves decently priced and cooked food. Bartenders, hostel manager and staff are extremely nice and helpful. Free wifi though if you want internet on a computer, they charge 1 euro for half an hour. Lovely roof bar perfect for summer and a downstairs garden terrace with bean bags which is great for mingling. There were groups going out every night so it's a pretty lively scene - take note, lots of clubs are in Kreuzberg (south east) which is not convenient walking distance - but everyone manages just fine. Clean beds and extremely clean and good bathrooms and showers - all in all though slightly pricier, it's a good place - definitely more than just a bed to sleep in.

Disliked: Jie left no negative feedback.

Liked: There's a great vibe and atmosphere. The staff are really nice, friendly and helpful. They had everything I needed facility-wise.

Disliked: The beds creaked every time you moved. Breakfast is €6.50 in the adjoining bar/cafe, but you can always find a cheaper breakfast around the place, it's a busy area.

Liked: Excellent location and super close to a ton of major tourist sights. Super friendly staff always willing to help you out with anything you need, be it at the hostel or a place to go out. We even got easter chocolates on our beds! The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and the bar/lounge area was just great to hang out, meet people, and play some games.

Disliked: Wifi only in the lounge areas - really not that hard to work around though.
