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.

Liked: The bar on main floor.

Disliked: The room was boiling hot. We asked what to do and tried their suggestions. Didn't work. When we told them fan did not work, gentleman at front desk basically told us there was nothing he could do and we had to deal with it. Wifi was terrible. It was free, but didn't even work for the last 2 nights we were there. They recognized they were having wifi problems, and they wouldn't even allow guests to use their internet terminals (which were working) for free for a short period of time to e-mail family or anything. Out of their control, but there was a lot of construction right outside our window that woke us up quite early. Not very dark curtains, so light came in and woke you up early, if you weren't already up from construction. Mold in the door frame for the shower. Did not feel welcome at hostel and staff was friendly for the most part, but wasn't all that accommodating. Drinks at bar were average, at best, and heinously expensive. In 6 weeks in Europe, these were the worst nights of the trip. This hostel reflected negatively on the whole city of Berlin.
