Liked: The rooms were very clean and tidy. The lockers were big enough to fit a decent amount of luggage. The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food that you could order from the bar was fairly priced and tasted delicious. Very close to loads of cheap eats and supermarkets to get water for the days travels. Only a 20 minute walk from Berlin HBF if you can walk as quickly as us.

Disliked: The wifi could only be used downstairs in the common area and not in the rooms.

Liked: Great location! The building itself is very interesting, the reconstrucion is very well done. The lobby is nice. But at the end of the day, everything is about the people. The staff was fine and professional, but could have been a little more cheerful and a little more proactive and a little more smiling.

Disliked: Matus left no negative feedback.

Liked: Location is really Nice. Very Close to metro, and walking distance to Alexanderplatz

Disliked: Wifi nor working in rooms, and not al all for the last 24 hours of my stay. Music in lobby was quite loud even during daytime so difficult to relax.Staff should know alternative transport to Schoenefeld (ie og to Schoenhauser Alle instead of Alexanderplatz)

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.

27 April 2014 Zhi Hui would recommend this property

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.
