10 July 2012 Stephen would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to everything. If you want to meet people, then this is your place. There are great places to hang out, surf the net, get to know people etc. The rooms are clean, there is a pool table, foozball table, bar, good tunes and a decent breakfast for 4 euros.

Disliked: No laundry, I had to spend my whole morning at a laundromat. I never received a towel A couple of the staff members are downright rude and have a really bad attitude, particularly this guy named Jackobo. I asked politely if they could turn down the music so that I could make a very important business phone call on Skype (The strongest WiFi signal is right under a speaker), they did not want to turn down the music because it would, "wreck the ambiance". I finally got a guy to turn it down after asking twice. Jackbo flat out refused to lower the volume at first, he seemed to think that I should have to go to an internet cafe to make a Skype call. As I looked at the 4 other people Skyping I wondered why the hell I picked a hostel that advertises free internet if I didn't think that I could use it. I don't come on vacation to to be treated like a twelve year old, and to be demeaned by someone 10 years my junior.

Liked: Decently located in between Oranienburg S and U Bahn stations. Huge rooms (the 50 bed dorm is spread out over three large rooms). Cheap.

Disliked: The rooms were huge and too well ventilated - meaning it got very cold at night (although in the summer this would be a plus). Bathrooms were weird - only a shower curtain to block your privacy. And since the showers were so close to the hallway, water often spilled out. And a big minus - my friend's camera got stolen out of his bag which he left on the bed for awhile. The staff even said that this was quite common. The lockers are there for a reason, BEWARE.

Liked: Really please with location (less than 5 minute walk from Subway). Brilliant for tourist attractions, river spree, eateries etc. Well run, organised, even extension leads to charge phone/laptop (bring your adaptor!). Good breakfast which included cheese and 1 type of cold cut. Decent sized lockers in rooms to accommodate mid size suitcase/rucksack. Stayed in a 4 bed female dorm; individual reading light attached to the head of the bed so no need for bunker lighting if somebody needed to get to sleep earlier. Read by review on Trip Adviser.

Disliked: Nothing. Could be potentially noisy with slamming doors, large groups etc but my experience was of a good sleep ... but then I was very tired.
