Liked: Helpful and friendly staff! Always with a shiny smile and willing to assist, especially the female staff. You have gold in them! Good price for breakfast and the people in the kitchen were really nice as well. Thanks very much for being so kind to everyone. Premises were kept clean except in some areas in the room.

Disliked: Internet connection is poor. It was a mission to get online. We're in the 21st century for gods sake! Clean up under the bunk beds not only where the mother in law walks through.Put shelves in bathrooms so guests can put shampoo etc while showering and better hooks on the walls to hang towels and clothes.Control guests alcohol intake in rooms and therefore the noise they make.Check out time is way too early than any other hostel I've stayed at.

Liked: The best thing I loved about this place was the staff. They are very helpful, soft spoken and well-mannered. They will help you with just about anything you ask.

Disliked: A little far from the city centre but 2 minutes away from the metro station, that'd take you about 10 minutes to the heart of the city.

Liked: The location was great as it was close to Tegel Airport as well as the U Bhan. The staff were really helpful and always so friendly. It was the first time that I stayed in a Hostel since many years ago and was absolutely amazed that I enjoyed my stay, the cleanliness, the breakfast was good and the people. Great atmosphere all round.

Disliked: The noise level from the people in the corridor but that was inevitable.

Liked: It was OK. Nothing exceptional. If you are a young traveller and want to enjoy your time, then definitely stay here. However look at my dislike list first.

Disliked: My room was right above the smoking area, opening a window was not possible. It was loud and noisy, however good music (house). So if you want rest and some clean air, this is not the place for you. Shower and toilets are shared, so keep that in mind. Wifi only works in the lobby a big minus there, but good for meeting people since you gotta be there. Most services costs extra, so no freebees, no towels, I got sheets for free wooo!

Liked: Staff was very helpful and it is near some markets and food shops. Beds and toilets were clean. On average, it is a hostel for those people how doesn't care about being a lit bit out of center, specially with the great public transportation system of Berlin.

Disliked: Wifi only works at common area and it is a huge hostel (I definitely prefere small hostels, specially when I am traveling alone). So, a lot of groups stays there and for those who are traveling alone it is more difficult to meet other travelers.
