Liked: the location is unbeatable; u can walk to anywhere! u can also buy anything u need at the doorstep.

Disliked: no kitchen. the wifi only works at the lobby, which is in the bar....so it gets a bit noisy at night and it feels strange when u're in ur pyjama surfing the web, while others are having vodka.

Liked: Cheap, good location close to Freidrichstrasse S-bahn station, which can get you pretty much anywhere you want to be in Berlin. 30 bed dorm is surprisingly quiet.

Disliked: It's too big, no one really hangs out in the common areas so it's hard to meet other travellers. Seems to be full of bigger groups. The drinks at the bar are expensive for Berlin.

Liked: Rooms were clean and full of daylight. Also the bathrooms were all clean and fine. Private rooms even have their own tv - it's nice entertainment when having a flu and fever. Location was great near centrum and U & S bahn stations. Breakfast wasn't free but definitely worth of it's price. Would really recommend this place!

Liked: Our private room was extremely clean when we arrived. It was a good size with great views over the city. The roof terrace and garden areas are a really nice touch and meant that there was another place to relax outside of our room. And the location is absolutely perfect. Couldn't be more central.

Disliked: The compulsory charge for bed linen. If it isn't optional then it should be included in the quoted price at the outset when booking, not when you arrive on the day.

Liked: The dorms where clean and well set up. There was a lovely bar and outdoor area which was nice to lounge around in. The staff where all really friendly and helpful with everything I asked them about!

Disliked: The stupid shower where you have to press the button every 10 seconds to get it to keep going! I'm not sure how to hostel is benefiting by having new logins for the internet everyday. There were a lot of really big groups.

Liked: Great location close to 2 s-bahn stops and ideal for walking around a lot of tourist sights. Nice outdoor area to relax in. Cheap bike hire. Good pub crawl

Disliked: Impersonal, too big so not easy to interact with other guests, a few 'event nights' would be good in the bar and a dvd/chill out room is always a bonus...

Liked: The set up of the hostel was fantastic. Originally I had reservations about booking the 30 person dorm however I found it to be extremely comfortable and secure. Everyone is extremely respectful towards the other travellers. As well as that the staff were very helpful and friendly throughout the stay. Location wise it's is perfect leaving you within walking distance of all the main sites in Berlin. It is also quite easy to find on first arrival.

Disliked: Nothing in particular. Overall I was delighted with my stay here.

Liked: Fantastic location, very central and right next to the station. Lively atmosphere in the bar and good communal spaces.

Disliked: We stayed in the 30 room dorm, although we thought it was great, people should be prepared for the fact that it is in the basement and it is very dark as it has minimal lighting. That being said as all we were doing was sleeping there we thought that it was good value for money and that the dark wasn't actually a problem as the bathrooms were well lit.
