Liked: The location was great, the staff was very helpful and the room was clean.

Disliked: The internet was very slow but this seems like a general thing in Germany. Streaming was near impossible. You weren't allowed to drink vodka, rum, etc. (even if mixed)

Liked: Very cheap beds and no charge for linen

Disliked: The musical chairs version of booking they have, where everyone has to changes beds or room. Expect to change room at least once in a four day stay. Beware that paying by credit card they will put it through in your 'home' currency ... at a terrible exchange rate. Either insist on being charged in euros or pay in cash. Also, the kitchen facilities are very cramped.

Liked: I think it has a good value for money. accommodation in Berlin is expensive and this hostel has fair prices (in the big rooms) and nice showers and bathrooms. the kitchen is quite small though. it has a great location! 2 U-bann stops from fridreich street \unter den linden. and it's a great advantage that there's a supermarket behind the hostel (LIDL)

Disliked: i love my hostels smaller and more famillier, this hostel runs as a business, the staff doesn't know you and you have to pay extra for anything. I couldn't us their pc for 5 min to check something.

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

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.
