Liked: nice common room, good facilities. Nice rooms with comfy beds

Disliked: Windows in rooms can't be open fully so rooms tend to become/stay very warm. Curtains do not really keep the room dark after the sun goes up, making sleeping in rather hard.

Liked: Well-designed room with good bunk beds and electricity points by each bed. Location was good, very close to the u bahn. Clean with helpful staff.

Disliked: Breakfast was 6.50! So I went to Alexanderplatz for breakfast each morning. The wifi wasn't great. Also, there were no kitchen facilities in the hostel - would have been nice to have had a kettle at least. But the bar staff were happy to fill up bottles of water. Finally, I was travelling alone, and didn't find this hostel to be a great place for meeting people as everyone seemed to be in groups.

Disliked: The giggling 17 year olds that checked into my dorm room at 1.30 AM booooooo. Poor wifi signal, didn't always work.

Liked: A very good hostel, though it was overrun with schoolgroups during the easter holidays. The rooms were nice, though a bit small, and clean, with a high ceiling, and the hostel was conveniently near the U-Bahn, and the staff was willing to address the guest's queries. No complaints, except those below.

Disliked: Unfortunately, the wifi was only available in the lobby (and it was wonky at times) and not in the rooms. No kitchen and fridge was available for the use of the guest as well, although this is probably meant to nudge the guest to purchase food from the café-restaurant-bar at the ground floor, though it admittedly serves good food. Washing service (for a fee) was available, though oddly, only during working hours (~9h till ~17h).

Liked: Nice design, perfect neighbourhood/surrounding, good transport links. Bunk beds are best I've ever seen. Perfectly clear bathrooms and rooms.

Disliked: Staff really should be more attentive to the customers. Kitchen or even a small kitchenette is a must in this sized hostel.

Liked: The building was nice. Location great.

Disliked: Staff very unhelpful - didn't even offer a map, wouldn't give suggestions about cheap restaurants nearby. Never interested in assisting you. Food and drinks incredibly overpriced, same with breakfast. Drinks FAR cheaper across the road in restaurants [4 euro compared to 7]. Wifi poor. It's a huge hostel and there's no atmosphere as people come in big groups and stay in their big groups. When we left a group of 70 school kids arrived. We left to go to a better hostel. Be warned - this is NOT a good hostel for solo travellers.

Liked: Great atmosphere, AMAZING bar out back with live music and a fire! Drinks all night at the hostel! Rooms were spacious and clean! Staff very helpful!!

Disliked: Rooms were pretty hot, no ventilation. The front patio doesn't close so a party can go all night, so bring earplugs!

Liked: I wish there was a better option for good here as this hostel exceeded all expectations. Fantastic location, fantastic accomodation and a thoroughly enjoyable time had. From the wild and wonderful garden area where we had breakfast each morning to the comfortable double room, from the birds singing in this peaceful location to lots and lots of great cafes, bars, clubs and shops on this hostel's doorstep.

Disliked: Only gripe would be one morning there wasn't any hot water.

Liked: The rooms were really nice and the whole place was very clean. The beds were comfy, though the pillows are a little too big, and the power outlets and reading lights are awesome! The space between bottom and top bunk is also nice, makes the room feel bigger.

Disliked: There is no common area. If you want to use your computer you need to sit in the bar which can be noisy. I didn't find the staff that friendly and when I asked for help I got a lot of jokes abnd negative comments about where I wanted to go which wasn't necessary. People smoking were constantly leaving the door open, staff included and it was freezing in the bar. The wifi looks really strong but the quality isn't great. The breakfast is entirely over priced and the laundry room has working hours so plan on staying in one day to do it.....
