Liked: I stayed at the all-female 6 bed dorm with private shower & toilet, hair-dryer in the room, each bed has a lamp & outlet. Very clean. Staff are extremely friendly & helpful. Breakfast costs 4.50 Eur. Cafe & lounge. BBQ pork neck steak(3.50 Eur ) they serve in the courtyard every evening are delicious, although pork sausages(2.50) just so so. This place is like a hotel. Best hostel I've stayed so far.

Disliked: Storage drawer under bed makes too much noise every time you pull it out or push it back.

Liked: Not here for long but i noticed a bar area and cafe. Heard a dj as well so good for socialising. There is a ping pong table as well if that's your thing.

Disliked: I was in a 4 bed room and it was very small. Barely enough space between the beds for two people to walk past at the same time. I am also sure i booked an 8 bed room so was confused when i walked in. However i believe this happened because other guests in my room had booked an all female room when they were in fact a m/f couple. This was maybe an attempt to fix the situation but i don't see why it meant i was moved to a smaller room. I would guess the 8 bed room would be even tighter for space. I was not charged any extra for being i. The smaller room so it did not bother me.

Liked: As other Generators, nice and clean and new. Right by the underground. The guy at the front desk was soo nice and funny! He reminded me a lot of the actor Justin Long. The hangout room was AMAZING, really comfortable and cool feeling.

Disliked: Other ladies that worked there were rude as can be..cleaning ladies and other general staff involved with them. Some didn't speak English. I guess we're not meant to interact with these people but they were AWFUL. And unbelievably priced drinks at the bar.

Liked: Excellent location, extremely clean, was more like hotel standards than hostels, great atmosphere.

Disliked: Service of staff really depends on who serves you, some were helpful others were not so much. Wish there was a bigger chill area that offered movies etc. not everyone wants to drink at the bar

Liked: The hostel was very clean and the staff were exceedingly helpful when one of our party had her phone stolen (on a night out, NOT from the hostel).

Disliked: Our check in took about an hour to sort out. The staff were very flustered and make a few mistakes charging us. It all worked out in the end, but staff acted very inconvenienced despite it being their error. The private 4-bed room hardly had enough space to turn around (and we were only 3!) and was quite expensive, but at least was very clean. Also, there was some misinformation about 30 minute airport train listed on the bulletin board which caused a lot of stress when it turned out it was actually a 60 minute ride with two changes!

Liked: It was very convenient, like 15 steps to the S Bahn.. There's this very nice restuarant just beside the hostel called Aufsturz. That place is open till midnight and you can get good affordable food and beer. Just to the right when you exit the hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful, room were of acceptable size. Really enjoyed my stay!

Disliked: Room card alway had a few problems but it was solved easily at the reception

Liked: Stayed in a twin room, I was really impressed by the size of the room. The bathroom facilities were excellent when compared to other hostels I've stayed in. The general hostel facilities were also great - the bar and cafe were reasonably priced and very convenient.

Disliked: Should be warned that the smoke alarms in rooms are very sensitive, ours was set off after it detected steam coming out of the bathroom after a hot shower

Liked: Great location for a short stay in this vibrant, expansive city. Great to have services such as wifi, and an affordable Bar in the building. Also such a great help to be able to store luggage on the last day before late flights.

Disliked: The lack of towels, with the option of hiring them at a 4 EUR charge, is a shame and is something that could perhaps be addressed by the hostel (even if just the hire price were lowered to say 1EUR). Also televisions in the rooms, and the ability to open the windows for better ventilation would be a great addition.

Liked: Situato in posizione centrale, per dare un'idea, l'isola dei musei si raggiunge tranquillamente a piedi. L'ostello è nuovo e moderno, di buon gusto e molto giovanile, gli ambienti sono accoglienti. Le camere hanno solamente lo stretto necessario, ma sono comunque carine, comode e pulite. Giudizio tendenzialmente positivo anche per lo staff.

Disliked: Le camere all'arrivo sono linde e splendenti, ma le pulizie non vengono effettuate quotidianamente. Le camere non sono fornite di telefono e nel bagno non si trovano né asciugamani né sapone.
