Hannah Rooke thinks…

"The only thing I liked about this hostel was leaving it. I cannot say one good thing about it, it is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in in my entire life (and I have stayed in a lot of hostels).…"

Liked: The location is good. The hostel is just across the metro. It is very close to a street on which there are a lot of nice cafes and bars.

Disliked: First, I could not see a friendly environment as stated on Hostelbookers.com for the hostel. The chief staff, the boss I guess, replied all the questions asked as if his time was wasted and, moreover, as if the questions were very weird. His behavior were very inpolite and snob, which would make one to regret to have asked the question. Second, I had to pay 2% extra because I made the payment via credit card. There was no information regarding that on hostel bookers.com. Third, There is no free wi-fi especially in the evenings. I was told that the service provider, the maxspot, is undergoing some sort of construction. However, the problem on wi-fi occurred everyday during our stay. I think this was a very big problem since the travelers would want to get practical info about the city and to be in contact with other people on Facebook. Mainly, I chose this hostel because there was supposed to be free wi-fi. Therefore, I was very disappointed. Fourth, our room was overviewing the garbage bins so it was stinking.

05 January 2012 Ilia would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is located right across the road from an U-Bahn station and a supermarket. The staff are friendly and helpful. The some of the hostel facilities are a bit run down, but the building is full of character. If you're travelling with four/five people, then the 'creepy box' is very good value for money. it's a private flat (with a kitchen), which is separated from the other guests, but unfortunately it doesn't have a totilet/shower. The surrounding area is relatively quiet in terms of night life, but Kreuzberg is only a few stops away on the underground.

Disliked: Ilia left no negative feedback.

Liked: The free wifi connection

Disliked: The hostal doesn't has a good manteinance and cleaning routine. The facilities and the things are very old and ugly; the bathrooms were dirty most of the time and because of that the hall allways smell bad; Also the dont separate the womens bathroom from the mens bathroom, so it was very umconfortable to take a shower. And the worst thing of all, the beds have fleas (me and a friend were bit by fleas).

Liked: Close to the underground train system to take you all over Berlin, and the number of food outlets near by was pretty good for choice.

Disliked: Need firmer pillows for the beds and thicker mattresses for the bottom bunks as I could feel the steel frame pushed up against my back as i slept.. well from what sleep I could get.. Locks on doors were difficult to lock and the shower ceiling was covered in mould.

Backpacking / gap year

19 September 2011

Liked: The beds were fairly comfortable.

Disliked: There are a lot of stairs and no lift. Didn't like people smoking in the kitchen or their loud music. Some people were living at the hostel relatively long-term and tended to hog the work areas in the kitchen or dorm. There were no towels in the bathroom for drying your hands, or soap for washing them in the first place. On our dorm's floor, there was one shower/toilet room for about 30 people. The whole place felt a bit grimy and could really do with a bit of a renovation.
