Liked: Not a bad place overall, quite spacious, the staff accommodated our needs, breakfast wasn't too bad (3.50 euros is quite reasonable). We came to run the marathon and had a largely trouble (and noise) free weekend.

Disliked: I didn't find the bed too comfortable and I won't say I had the best sleep ever. But perhaps I could ask for a better pillow and all would be all right. There also seemed to be a lack of showers and toilets and sometimes you'd have to go to another floor to find one. Then again there were quite a few marathon runners coming back from the race for a shower and I assume it wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't that weekend.

Liked: A really cool hostel! I stayed in the biggest dorm section - if you do this, walk through all the massive rooms as there are smaller more private rooms at the end. Breakfast was good value, very good location.

Disliked: Staff often annoyed if you ask them something, kitchen was not in the hostel but in another hostel around the corner - 2 lots of hostels using one kitchen = chaos!

Liked: great location, near the city center and the s-bahn( there's a great supermarket down the s-bahn). The room is clean and steady. The price is really valuable.

Disliked: a little bit too many rules to follow.

Liked: they offered a great breakfast. the hostel is extremely good located. it was truly cheap.

Disliked: there weren't enough lockers at all, even though there were huuuge rooms! you couldn't lock the bathrooms. Despite the lofty character of the rooms there was some big lack of privacy/security.
