Liked: Great hostel for meeting other people as the bar downstairs was very popular. Huge rooms with plenty of hanging space for clothes and towels and lockers for valuables. The 5 euro all you can eat breakfast was really good value and went until well after lunch which was great!

Disliked: The free wi-fi at the hostel didnt work most of the time as it was too busy, when it did work it was slow and cut out constantly. Would not recommend this hostel if you want to get a lot of sleep as it definitely is a party hostel!

Liked: Brilliant hostel! The best i've stayed in. The dorms (I was in a 10 person dorm) were clean, with small security lockers and night lights next to each bed. The showers were clean and hot, the breakfast in the cafe was a bargain and ran early until 1pm (for any late risers/people just coming in from nights out). The big security lockers downstairs (10 euro deposit) were great for storing bigger bags, and the staff were really helpful and friendly. The bar has lots of different nights on and the drinks were cheap. Location is brilliant - close to many of the independent galleries, bars and restaurants. I was travelling on my own and i'd definitely book this hostel if (when!) I return to Berlin.

Liked: Location is great, easy to connect with all the city by bus or metro, also the neighborhood is awesome to walk around. The hostel ambientation is really cool and clean. The staff is super kind and helpful. The room was big and comfortable.

Disliked: It doesn't has kitchen. The bar opens bit late (to have breakfast or at least to get some hot water to make yourself a coffee), and it's little expensive. The common area is small.

Liked: This hostel was remarkably clean (in fact, I was in my dorm room when a staff member came to replace the sheets for new guests and saw him clean every surface and vacuum the floor). The staff was helpful and personable. The breakfast in the convenient cafe by the lobby was delicious and served at a great deal. The bar in the basement was impressive and a fun place to spend some time without having to walk a long way home. The location of the hostel couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend this hostel.

Liked: It was nice to stay in a dorm that didn't have bunks and just single beds in a dorm. The cafe and bar downstairs was really good and reasonably priced. The Hotels (part of the hostel) restaurant across the road was lovely too.

Disliked: The male toilets smelled slightly and made the hall have a funny odour.
