Liked: There is a very nice atmosphere, made by all the young travelers which is adapted perfectly in the general ambient and energy of the city of Berlin.

Disliked: My roomate that was switching on the light in the room at 8.00 in the morning and the clear preference to rock music. I really didn't face any problem!

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!
