Liked: It's new and well-maintained. Rooms are clean and facilities are great. Location wise is fantastic as it is very near Berlin Hauptbahnhof and withing walking distance to places of attraction such as Bundestag, Bradenburg Tor etc.

Disliked: I think the only downside of this hostel is the lack of air-conditioning in the room to cater for hot summer season.

Liked: Location.

Disliked: There were some very noisy people here including a rowdy stag group playing music late into the night. At 5 am I heard someone going around trying a magnetic met on all the doors. Made me think someone was up to no good. The hinges on the doors make them slam, even at night. You need earplugs.

Liked: Modern, tidy, central-located, low price, friendly staff, ATM and fridges with several beverages in the lobby.

Disliked: Quite poor wi-fi, groups of teenagers. Also the strict signs about not to bring alcohol into the property - which is partly understandable, though it's not contributing to a relaxed atmosphere.

Liked: For the price, the hostel was excellent. It's location is perfect for those who need to be near the Hauptbahnhof. Given its proximity to the station, it also felt very safe.

Disliked: Two main criticisms. Firstly, breakfast was very expensive: €5,90. It was nice, but not that nice! Secondly, why have TVs in shared dorms? It seems a totally unnecessary expenditure. Maybe they are still paying off the cost through charging so much for breakfast...

Liked: The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a storage room for luggage and a common area in the lobby with great wifi and well-priced drinks. The hotel is right next to the Haupbahnhof, which is easy access to the metro and long-distance train travel, not to mention cheaper food and some stores in case you have time to kill before connections.

Disliked: The dorm rooms are a little small and it gets hot during the summer.
