Liked: Very nice hostel near some centre attractions. The staff were friendly and the rooms were clean.

Disliked: The only thing is the wifi doesn't stretch to the rooms so you have to use the wifi downstairs - plus the wifi blocks whatsap call which is the way I was keeping in contact with my family!

Liked: Mostly helpful and nice staff. Easy and uncomplicated check-in and -out.

Disliked: Coffee ran out quite quickly on the second day. the coffee machine "didn't work" and the person was not able to organise an alternative coffee-maker. normally, i am not very keen to criticize small matters but as a student who paid 4 euro for breakfast, I think its not too much to ask ... to have coffee for breakfast since there are ways to have alternative coffee machines. the person, who was responsible on the day, did not seem to be interested to help.the toilets were very wet in the evening, but i guess this is beyond the control of the hostel since they cannot control what people are doing there all the time. some people may not be able to use the shower properly (water flows too fast).

Liked: It's a big hostel with lots of people and a nice lobby area for meeting other travelers. They have cheap breakfast, good rooms and beds and it's clean.

Disliked: It's amazing that on year 2015 there are hostel where the WIFI is the worst crap in the universe. The internet here feels like a remote south american town.I can not believe that you can not connect in your room and that even in the lobby it's almost impossible to use the internet properly. Come on, you can't even use the internet to book or search flights, hostel, etc.

Liked: Great lobby area with bar, fully equipped kitchen, spacious rooms, good showers.

Disliked: Misplaced one key card and was charged €5 which seems a bit steep considering other hostels we've been to take around €1-2 deposit. Photos showed colourfully decorated rooms however ours was just plain white.

Liked: All members of staff were incredibly nice and helpful. The location is great because is only about ten minutes walk away from all the major tourist spots. Nice and safe atmosphere, fantastic music playing in the speaker in the hall, from Faith No More to Russian Circles, would definetely recommend this hostel to anyone, one of the best I've stayed in my life and will definetely go back to stay there when in Berlin next time!
