Liked: Was easy to find and very central to all my needs. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Made things easier for me as I don't understand German clearly as yet.

Disliked: The bathroom did not appear to be cleaned on a daily basis... This should be a must in a hostel room with 4 beds. People come and go and the bathroom should be cleaned daily.

Liked: Close to the train station which means good connections to everywhere, clean, staff is helpful and speaks good english, well sized room, drawers under the bed, value for money but don't add any extras (like breakfast) since the train station has such a good selection of restaurants which also are cheaper.

Disliked: Nothing in particular. I was the only guy in the room when I arrived then two more ladies checked into the room, don't know if they were asked if they're ok with that (since I left early and never met them), but depending on your culture that might come as strange. You may therefore want to ask for a ladies only room. if this applies to you.

Liked: Very close to central station, just 2mins walk. Check-in is quite smooth. Definitely value for money. Shower water pressure is good, washroom is spacious with several hooks.

Disliked: Room is a little small but still is bearable. Other than that, nothing to dislike.

Liked: Good location - 1 min from train station and less than ten from main attractions like parliament and Brandenburg Gate. Comfy bed and good ensuite bathroom with shower in dorms. Fairly spacious in dorms.

Disliked: We booked together through hostel bookers but ended up in separate rooms. There was only two of us. Breakfast seemed expensive so we didn't bother.

Liked: Location, value, cleanness

Disliked: Staff not very helpful, I had a few questions about getting around and public transportation but they didn't know much about it. Yes, I can find out this information myself but in other hostels/hotels where I stayed, I used to get more help.

Liked: The location. Near to the central station and other local public transportation

Disliked: The room I stayed in did not have air conditioner and I couldn't open the window for ventilation (My room was on the 8th floor). I understand that I was not allowed to open the window for safety reasons. Given this reason I would've liked the hostel to provide a fan for the rooms where you can't open the window.

13 June 2014 MUHAMMAD would recommend this property

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.
