Liked: Lovely and clean rooms and really friendly atmosphere

Disliked: It was quite loud at night if trying to get a good sleep and the wifi was rather poor on the second floor. Also the ladies showers were freezing cold on the second floor.

Liked: The location was excellent, near an U-Bahn stop, and within walking distance of so many sights, parks, places to eat and there is a LIDL grocery store is directly behind the building! Dorm bed was comfy and the lockers were large. Bring your own lock.

Disliked: I can't fault the cleaning staff as I was up early every day and witnessed them work hard, but the lack of disrespect from all the young irresponsible guests appalled me. The kitchen was a disgusting mess, the showers full of water on the floor, the lack of soap in the ladies room -- everything others have said I will say as well. A suggestion might be to invest in some shower curtains that actually fit the showers, possibly avoiding all the water on the floor outside the basins. Ran out of dish soap in the kitchen early in the evening and I was told from the gal at the reception, "There is nothing I can do. You will have to wait until the morning to get more." Be aware the place is crawling with gap year students and young people on summer holidays and they are not the quietest nor the most respectful of guests.

Liked: Everything was very easy, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The dorm was absolutely perfect for a single night stay, though I wouldn't recommend it for anything longer.

Disliked: This is very much a hostel for short stays and for young people. Expect lots of teenagers laughing very loudly and making noise.

Liked: The location is amazing, and the coast/benefit is good. Friendly staff and big rooms.

Disliked: Cleaning - Not very clean rooms and bathrooms (the baths are usually very wet and the lack of soap in the toilets is constant). The kitchen is a joke - absolutely dirty and messy. Bad common spaces. No control of entrance and exit of whoever is there. Deposit - they demand a deposit of 10€ or your passport or any other ID because, apparently, the owner finds most guests very messy. So, if you break something, it comes out of your deposit (or passport or ID). Computers - they offer 2 computers for common use, which are in horrible state. The malfunction of one of them is just a joke to the guests. Internet - bad wifi, very slow connection.

Liked: It's well located, just next the "check-point Charlie". Staff are friendly and the hostel looks new and clean. Has a common area with a TV and a foosball table.

Disliked: There's only one bathroom for the entire floor and it contains three showers, which were always flooded. The kitchen is pretty small.

Liked: Location was pretty good, right next to Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum. The price was also fantastic (but you get what you pay for.) The bathrooms were clean, and some of the showers had good temperature/pressure.

Disliked: No common space. Room smelled terrible (especially the carpet) and did not seem clean. The crowd at this hostel was particularly weird, especially the seemlingly endless number of sketchy guys who would sit at the table in the hallway and try and talk to me everytime I went to use the washroom. Really not conducive to meeting people, and I wouldn't stay here travelling alone. They don't ever seem to lock the front door, and you do not have to pass reception on your way in so there were often homeless-looking people hanging out in the stairwell as you entered.
