Liked: Central and clean. Well kept. Ideal for young travellers but not so much for families.

Disliked: Limited areas for the under 18s to stay after 8pm. No devises to mop/dry the floor in the showers so at the end of the end was hard to find a proper one.

Liked: I really like that breakfast was included in quite good price of a bed ( approximately 10 euro). On the groud floor there was also a pub which was a brilliant place to chill out after the whole day of sightseeing. Location of the hostel was also very comfortable.

Disliked: Everything was okay.

Liked: I absolutely loved how close the hostel was from the nearest Metro Station. It made traveling Berlin so much easier knowing I didn't have a long walk to get to the Metro.

Disliked: I would have liked access to WiFi in the rooms themselves for a more private experience in my downtime.

Liked: Very Good: Bunk beds are bolted to the wall so the bed is NOT shaking when the guy above you turns in his sleep.

Disliked: Didn't like the party noise in the bar/lobby - the property would benefit from a quieter common room for people who don't like getting drunk

Liked: Like a mcdonalds really. No common room, just a bar. Bar atmosphere, lotta big groups and sure you can meet people just like in any bar in the world but its totally unlike a hostel in that sense. They positioned the beds in our big dorm in the worst way possible for human interaction. Their box-beds were either facing the wall the window or hidden somewhere. Everythings commercialized as much as possible. Theres computers sure but you gotta pay 2 euros an hour. When on the other side of the street its like an euro an hour. Bleh. Its alright for a budget place thought. Huge boutique hostel, you know what youre getting i guess. But im not a fan of st cristophers

Liked: I really liked the location and both bar and reception staff members were very helpful in general (with the exception of one of the receptionists). It is also a cheap place to stay (with the exception of New Years and some Fri/Sat periods). The beds were clean, and the fact that you have a curtain on each bed, leads to a level of privacy that is not the norm in hostels. Each bed in the dormitory has its own light and two power sockets.

Disliked: The fact that they describe themselves as a hostel, when in reality the only thing they have that can be described as a hostel is some dormitories (even if dorm room 26 smelt like wet dog for the whole 5 days i was there). I am a very frequent traveller and have seen a lot of what hostels should offer, but in my opinion, this accomodation falls short in a number of categories. Infact i felt so compelled to write a review, to warn other travellers who are hoping for a more traditional hostel experience (like those from EastSeven hostel or Aloha). Common room - despite being listed as a common room, this is borderline false advertisment. What they mean by a "common room" is just a corner of the bar, of which there is a TV that does not work, and there is a lack of any DVDs to be watching on said TV, even if it was operating. Also you can expect this "common room" to be closed off with chairs and tables for "cleaning" for the 6 hours that the main bar is shut. You are not allowed to eat your own food or drink your own drinks here, and i was told by another traveller that the fine is allegedly 50 euros if you get caught with your own drink (of which you are asked to leave if you don't pay). By definition, this "common room" is not a common room, and it is not even in its own room. It is an upstairs part of the bar that anyone off the street can use (and do). No one stays there long and only really use it to charge their laptops and ipads. Atmosphere - Being that this property really is nothing more than a bar with some rooms and dorms attached to it, the bar is fully open to any of the locals. I think this spoils the travel atmosphere, as it is hard enough as a solo traveller to approach other travellers in bars as it is, without the risk of it just being some couple who have come in for a quick beer and are not interested (or even surprised) at you approaching there table and asking if you can sit with them. It is also almost completely void of people during the early afternoon, as those who are bored don't want to spend lots of money in the bar just so they might meet one of two travellers (possibly). In my opinion, this was not the easiest place to meet new people, and does little to encourage interaction between guests, with none of the usual hostel activities that real hostels have to bring guests together. Bar - The bar was okay, but was again not a hostel bar, but a general bar of which people staying in the rooms upstairs had a 25 discount on food. The bar was exspensive when compared to all the options available just around the corner. A good beer would be 3.50EUR but this could be easily had around the corner for 2.50EUR. Showers - Okay but extremely annoying, yes it is one of those hostels that don't think you are capable of turning off the shower once you are done. It is one of those showers where you have to hold the button in for the shower to continue working. Try to take your hand off for a few seconds whilst you reach for some soap, and the whole shower will stop. Kitchen - An apparent lack of any obviously located or sign posted kitchen. A kitchen should be expected in a hostel and budget consious travellers should not be forced to have to eat at the bar and pay extra money.

Liked: Great hostel. Stayed here before and would again. The beds have curtains so even if the room light is on, you are not woken up.

Disliked: The building isn't very well ventilated so when several people have showered, the corridors get quite smelly.

Liked: The best hostel in Berlin, hands down!!! Centrally located and the least inexpensive hostel price with a bar that rocks superb beats, drinks and food and a chill upstairs where you can take it down a notch or not;) The free continental breakfast does the trick after a wild night and is a feast for those on a budget. The train station is directly next to the hostel and makes for a perfect hop, skip and a jump from wherever you might want to be. The collection of countries and lifestyles that end up at St. Christophers is the reason why staying at a hostel excels a hotel. Meet the world's countries and it's people while staying at the same hostel and not leaving Berlin. Live Berlin, love this hostel and enjoy joy. Here you are home with an international family and a city that waits for you to play within it's playground. Rock and roll within epic-liscious Berlin nights and tuck yourself into St. Christopher's, a hostel you won't regret or forget!

Disliked: The only thing I didn't like about this hostel was my inability to stay longer!

Liked: The rooms were large, very clean and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Considering the majority of the staff were from different parts of the world, they understood the travellers mentality and thus had plenty of useful and helpful advice.

Disliked: There was very little I disliked about the property. However, the morning I left, I left my camera battery plugged in and when I went back to collect it, only 30 mins later, it was already gone. All of the beds had been vacated by then so I don't know who was responsible for taking it.
