"Location was good, rooms are like a hotel rather than a hostel. The 5.5euro travel pass you can buy for the day is a great way of getting round the city cheaply. You can have it until 6am the following morning."

Liked: Really big room, the bed was very comfortable for a hostel. The rooms were nice and warm despite the cold outside. The showers were really good too, and the hostel was quite quiet at night. Really close to a metro stop too.

Disliked: Frederika left no negative feedback.

Liked: In the heart of Berlin, you can go to any place of interest via local traffic within a few minutes (ask the waiter for tickets, they're selling the cheap ones!) Cosy place to stay, welcome-drinks, loveley give-and-take-library, people from all over the world you want to make friends with.

12 January 2013 Sonja would recommend this property

Liked: They invited us to a free welcome drink first. The staff was superb. They explained everything whilst drinking a cup of coffee with us. Very nice breakfast and food in the hostel restaurant Grand Ma`s. The rooms are spacious and very clean. No bunk beds so we had a good and relaxed sleep. In the bar we very invited for "Glühwein" and had a very good time with all the other travellers around. The location is very good, cause there are 2 main tube lines and the S-train station is closed. Not more than 3 minutes to go by S-train to the city center. We had a perfect time in the Hostel and would recommend it to everybody.

Disliked: Nothing to complain at all

Liked: This place is amazing. Highly recommend staying there for anyone travelling to Berlin. The place has more of a hotel feel to it but with the atmosphere and friendliness that a hostel can have. The staff are amazing, they are all super friendly and have great advice for places to visit.

Disliked: Its not super central, but the cool thing is that its right beside a metro stop which can take you anywhere you want in a matter of minutes.

Liked: The place is safe and secure.

Disliked: I found the actual hostel to be sort of creepy because when you enter you just walked up a large staircase without seeing reception or the common room. I would always find myself alone in dark deserted hallways, with the automatic lights coming on and off, the water and soap and showers were all automatic and there was never anyone in the common room downstairs. You can go for days here and never speak to another person.

Liked: I like that the rooms were really big and that it was really value for money to think that this is the best hostel in Europe. Also, the staffs were really very nice and welcoming.

Disliked: Just that it doesn't have an elevator but I guess it's understandable since it's already a historical building.

Liked: The staff were brilliant - in particular Christian & Ben - they were extremely helpful and friendly and made you feel at home. The decor was pretty cool although a little bit too grand in the bar area - you felt there was no real place to relax. It was very clean.

Disliked: Essentially this was a cross between a hotel & a hostel with the negatives of both and the benefits of neither. In a hotel you would at least get free coffee making facilities and your own bathroom and in a hostel you would not normally have to keep paying for everything as an extra. * The location wasn't great. It was at least a 30min walk to the Brandenburg gate. * nothing beyond the bed and the room was included. You needed to pay for everything! The linen, towels, to print boarding passes, any food and unless you brought your own tea or coffee you had to pay for that as well, laundry was over €5 per load. * our room was close to the bar & Reception so it was noisy from the bar at night and noisy from people checking in and out in the morning (from 6am onwards). * the showers were unisex but there was no where to change at all except in the main area where everyone could see - automatic showers meant you couldn't change in the cubicle. * the bar and restaurant were no cheaper than anywhere else in Berlin and you didn't get any type of discount for staying at the hostel * it left us with the feeling this was a place designed to extract money from your pockets

Liked: The Grand Hostel is in an exellent location for travelling around Berlin with the train stop being literally 5 minutes walk along the road. The people working there are really helpful and friendly and give you sound advice regarding the things to do and see and how to get there! All in all the Hostel is clean and welcoming and you feel safe there! The food at the "Grandwich" is preety nice too.

Disliked: The ease of travel comes at a price the trains can be a little noisy in the early hours if you have a front facing room and they are very regular. Icannot see that this would be a problem if you were not in the front rooms though!
