Ben Prout thinks…

"They had Wi-Fi in the rooms and free parking (in the street, which isn't in the nicest neighborhood)."

Liked: Very cheap place to stay, it's located very near to the Jewish Museum, the Berlinische Gallery, Checkpoint Charlie and many of the tourist spots. There are several shops within easy reach. It was very clean and the showers were hot everytime I used them.

Disliked: There were no blinds or curtains on the windows of my room on an east facing wall which meant that in the morning we had a green house effect that was extremely warm even with the windows open. For some reason there was only cuttlery in the kitchen on the final day (I stayed for a whole week) which was a bit of a pain. The cleaners would start cleaning rooms out before people had checked out meaning they might come and bang around in the room several t.imes if you were trying to sleep, not much fun if you are trying to sleep off a night of clubbing

Liked: The showers were really good and the staff was helpful

Disliked: The kitchen was awful. Not impressed with the paper plates and plastic knives and forks. There were no cooking utensils whatsoever. The hostel seemed to attract a teenage party crowd and a couple weirdos.

Liked: It is only a few minutes from the metro station. There is free locker in the room. The common room is ok.

Disliked: The kitchen is too small and there was sewage water leaked into my room which is right across from the kitchen. The water stink the whole floor and we were so upset that we might not be able to sleep that night but the manager fixed the problem really quick and offered a free breakfast the next day. The bathroom was not well cleaned. There was no soap in the toilet to wash hands. The tables in the common room were dirty from all guests eating there.

Liked: Table football. Ask at reception for the ball, and you can just play your heart out. Rooms were clinically-looking clean. Location is astounding, especially for how much rooms cost. Right in the center, within (a decent) walk to some clubs, although the trains run until 5 on weekends, so you can get anywhere, whenever. Staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating, and pleasantly strict (they kicked a group out for being loud and messing up the kitchen), so you don't end up with any unpleasant people breaking the rules. People at the hostel are all very young (mostly 18-23ish, which included our group) so is a fantastic place for young people to meet and make friends. Not so great for older people looking for a quiet hostel.

Disliked: No ventilation in the main corridor, so bad smells kind of stagnate in there, so it often smells bad. The showers were frequently flooded, and the kitchen is under-equipped and too small. They have no permanent cutlery or plates, so you have to ask at reception for plastic plates and cutlery, which is both annoying and wasteful. However, it also makes sense, as to have plates would mean for them to get broken frequently, as people do often treat the kitchen utensils quite badly. Also, fridge raiders are always present, waiting to steal your bacon (literally in our case), just as a warning to fellow travelers. Also, the directions are very very vague on the website. Had to turn on mobile data (abroad!) to get actual directions from google maps.

Liked: Location. There are many other hostels in good location too.

Disliked: Poor quality, everything falling into pieces including unscrewed toilets, windows, door handles. Toilet doors- impossible to close- broken lock. Light bulbs burned out. Drinking any alcohol in your room- forbidden- member of staff was telling us off about this as soon as we paid, in front of other guests. You can drink in a near by place which looks like is their second business. View on roof of a production hall. No airconditioning, no window blinds, dirty bedding. Shower with no light once you are in it and no space for soap or towel. No working Wifi. Awful experience. Absolut rip off. Never again.

Liked: Location and Wifi in the Room. Most of the attractions are in walking distance.

Disliked: Everything else. The room is not very clean, the bed is shaky, and the kitchen is so tiny that wouldn't fit 2 people in there. There is only half portion of curtain in my room that cannot cover the whole window. So everybody was waken by the sun in the very early morning.

Liked: It was my second stay at Check In Hostel, so this express well enough my impressions. There are tens and tens of hostels around Berlin, but this one fits exactly to all my needs when visit the city. Best location - everything is reachable by walk, or in short trip by public transport. Staff at the reception are very very helpful and friendly! Special thanks to Elsa!

Disliked: there is a kitchen with a cooker and 2 or 3 microwaves, el. kettle and so on, but a toaster might have been a nice touch; and they seriously need a bigger fridge, or at least one more - for over of 150 ppl 2 small fridges are more than inadequate

Liked: The helpfulness of the staff and their acts were really friendly. They tried to inform us whatever did we need about. It was really nice to stay there. And we were two people, one girl and one guy. The room wasn't full of guys, it was also a nice thing to had a room like that for girls.

Disliked: The cleanliness of the showers were average and the space in the cabins were not enough to take of/wear our clothes.
