Liked: New building. Good quality furniture. Stable beds which don't make noise while getting in. Nice big lockers.

Disliked: Although internet is free of charge your session expires every hour and you can't login again unless you get new login key from the reception. It's nothing for light sleepers, you can hear train announcements since it is so close to "S-bahn" station. Night lamp to bright, it lights up to much of the room kind of kills the purpose of a night lamp. No shelf next to your bed for small stuff like phone, charger etc.

Liked: Everything seems to be well organised. All the requests are answered to, and staff friendliness is at the highest level. Secured parking is an additional +. Place is big, clean and easily accessible.

Disliked: Although everything works as expected, the connection to the centre Berlin can be confusing at first glance. However, Berlin public transport is easily understood after a bit of analysis, so this is not so much of an issue.

Liked: Nice design

Disliked: Most of the staff seems to be stressed and thus unfriendly. Location is far away from the sights and you can hear the train very loudly since the tracks are a few meters from the room. The hostel itself is safe, but the area not so much. I didn't have any problems but other guests told me that they had some bad encounters on the street.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The hostel is right on top of the train station. Don't plan on sleeping if you can't tolerate a train rumbling through every 10 minutes. Also, the room was intolerably hot and the window would not open more than a few centimeters. Also, be sure to obey the rules or they will confiscate your key deposit. Hostile and ridiculous staff too. I've stayed at a lot of hostels in Berlin. Do yourself a favor and find another one; there are many out there.

Liked: the staff were generally helpful, was right next to the train station,n due to it being pretty new it was clean.

Disliked: the most annoying thing about this place is that u have to make your own bed so when everyone comes in at 12/1 you wake up for sure,so being right next to the train station you hear everything the train offers including everything that people say. the hostel doesnt offer anything really for the backpacker that you find at nearlly every other hostel as far as advertising on walking tours, pub crawls there is a bar down stairs that has 0 atmosphere at all. u have to go to reception to get them to come back round to the bar to serve u which is annoying. they do give u a FREE drink card on arrival but its for a non alcoholic drink of fruit. location is not ideal for the traveller who wants to go out as the trains have curfews n where all the other hostels are where the pub crawls are its to far away. im trying not to be negative but in the 10 or so hostels ive stayed at this was the worst.

04 July 2012 Benjamin would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel is extremely clean, well-furnished, comfortable, and convenient. It is located literally right next to the S-Bahn and U-Bahn Neukölln Station making transportation to anywhere in the city extremely convenient. The beds are comfortable, with duvets and outlets and reading lights at each bed. The bathrooms are very nice and have plenty of hot water. The rooms are cleaned everyday.

Disliked: The location is convenient to anywhere by train, bus, or bike, but there is not a tremendous amount going on in the area around the hostel. There are plenty of convenience stores, and Turkish restaurants, but for those looking for a more active nightlife, they will have to ride a bike for 10-20 minutes, take a taxi or ride the metro/train/rail a couple stations away(5min).
