Liked: Safe and secure, free lockers, hot showers, well equiped kitchen, cheap bar, helpful staff, great location with subway station 2 mins away. Lots of great bars, restaurants and supermarkets close by. The room was cleaned every day! All the people I met there were really friendly. Highly recommended. If you like live music go to White Trash Fast Food just over the road. Bands on every night at 10pm various music and original style venue. Does decent food too and serves til late.

Disliked: WiFi wasn't very reliable. You had to log in with password eachtime you lost the signal. Not a huge issue for me but if you'll be using the internet a lot during your stay it could prove problematic.

Liked: I's insanely clean and well organized for a hostel. Really impressive. The staff is also super nice, and they give you free access to travel guides and stuff like this. The bar on the top floor is OK as well.

Disliked: It really depends on your taste, but the atmosphere at the bar reminded me a lot of the "get wasted in all of europe" kind of vacation for 18-21 year olds. Also they don't organize any events in the hostel. So bottom line, a great place to stay in any case, but if you want to meet people above 21 who can still remember their name at 11 PM, not the place to be.

Liked: The hostel is centrally located and well connected to everything. The terrace on the roof is nice in the summer and it's a good place to meet new people. The bar has happy hour every night.

Disliked: This hostel completely lack of atmosphere, and it is more like a budget hotel. Our room was not very spacious considering that it was a 6 beds dorm. Beds are not very comfy. The area is very noisy because of traffic jam during the whole day. The bathroom was smelly and it has never been cleaned for 6 days. The wifi connection was very weak and not working for most of the time. Staff not very helpful.

Liked: This hostel is clean and spacious in a 6 bed dorm. Security is good with big lockers in dorm, and key pass to walk through from level and rooms

Disliked: Wifi, you had to log in every time and it would drop out frequently. Breakfast was very average. Extreme basics and for 3.80 euro. Wasn't really worth it.

Liked: I got to Berlin early morning and they have showers for people who arrive early! That was an amazing surprise. Rooms are very clean. The bar upstairs is a decent atmosphere. Rooms are also very spacious. Free wifi. Location was excellent- 5 minute walk from Alexanderplatz or you could take the Ubahn.

Disliked: There was 1 guy on the night shift who was very rude to me. Some girls came up to him to ask for directions to the club, while I had been standing in line for a while, and he ignored me to help them. When I confronted him about it, he wouldn't say a single thing about it, not even apologize. I told the front desk the next morning, and they gave me some free drinks vouchers, so there's that.

Liked: I would not reccomend this hostel for solo backpackers looking to meet people. I wish that Hostelbookers had a "Meh" rating, because thats what I would give it. It's super clean, has a nice bar, but ultimately is filled with groups on spring break or stag do, and you feel lost in the cavernous, hotel style upper floors. Those who utilize the kitchen keep to themselves, no hostel-organized get togethers, etc. It feels like you are staying at the nicest cheap motel youve ever stayed at. If you want this, go there. If you are looking to recover and relax and not be bothered, go there. If you want to meet people and have fun in Berlin, look elsewhere
