16 August 2013 Louis would recommend this property

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.

Liked: Wifi was free and in the rooms, there is an Aldi right around the corner. Also very close to Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish History Museum.

Disliked: The bathrooms were consistently dirty for our 3 night stay, and there was only one bathroom per gender per floor, with lots of multi-bed dorm rooms. There was a banquet hall/club in the alley underneath the hostel, so it was always very loud throughout the night. There is only one kitchen and definitely not enough refrigerator space.
