Liked: The location is excellent, within walking distance of various tourist sights. The staff is friendly and always willing to help. I would definitely recommend this hostel and when I return to Berlin will stay there again.

Disliked: The only issue I had was that we requested a wake up call and although we had a private room and a telephone inside the staff forgot twice! But I forgive them, great experience.

Liked: Great location, three minute walk from a big trainstation. Very friendly and helpful staff. When travelling alone very easy to make contact with the others travelers at the bar and in the common rooms. A lot of options to eat and drink in a walking distance.

Disliked: The smokingroom was not closed. Therefore the common area (and when your in it, you too) smellt most of the time from the smoke. I stayed in the big fifty bed dorm (wich are actually two rooms, one with 36 beds and the other with the rest), there was a red fluorescent light on all night. Positive about that is that you can see where you walk, but for me therefore the room was not dark enough to sleep. And ofcourse, when your roommates are very rude and noisy, you will not have a good sleep. But also then, the staff is very helpfull.

01 October 2011 Thomas would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were really helpful, fun and nice people. The location couldn't of been better and the bar/ lounge area was always busy with a good atmosphere.

Disliked: The large dorm didn't have a proper light you could put on. I can see why they don't have one (so 30 people aren't woken up by one person coming in a 4am) but it made it hard to just sort your gear out. Maybe bed lamps might work? The other facilities were so good there was no real need to spend any time in the room though.
