Liked: It was a fun, quirky place with adorable décor. I enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen as everyone cooked and ate. I loved the fact that all ages now stay in hostels as I am over 50!

Disliked: You can only pay in cash (no credit cards).

Liked: Very nice hostel. Clean and nicely decorated. Friendly atmosphere and employees that were happy to help us work out transport, plans, etc. Free breakfast was also handy.

Disliked: The location is not ideal. Took about 10 minutes on the train to get to the central area of Berlin which we had to do often either to see sites there or to change train lines.

Liked: It was a great central location, newly refurbished and spacious. Bathrooms were really good also.

Disliked: Did not like how they described that we have our own bathroom, when it was shared. We just about coped because there was a sink and hairdryer outside the room and another toilet 4 doors away.

Liked: The staff are extremely helpful and polite. It is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The downstairs room is great to just sit and drink or serve the web. It has a great garden and great food making facilites. If you stay anywhere else in Berlin you are making a huge mistake.

Liked: The kitchen was really big and the hostel was very clean and new. It was right next to an Ubahn station and if you're taking the bus from Schonefeld airport then it takes you almost right to the door!

Disliked: It was 35 degrees when I was there and unbearably hot. Definitely would have appreciated some AC or a fan.

Liked: Very clean and has been designed to be a hostel (plugs everywhere, wifi, tea and coffee and breakfast!). A big big thank you to the woman who is in charge of this place!

Disliked: Well, its a touch girly I would say, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Liked: Great new hostel on the border of Kreuzberg and Neukoelln, best 6 bed dorms I have stayed in over 6 months of backpacking. Pretty good breakfast in the morning, plenty of common areas, and the staff are amazing. Easy to get to the city center on the metro, and plenty happening nearby anyway.

Disliked: Little hard to get to know other people staying at the hostel, as although there are plenty of common areas, no one seems to be interacting. Maybe a happy hour or communal dinner could fix this!

Liked: Great hostel for meeting people! Large common areas and an amazing kitchen. The staff is very helpful and welcoming, there are also plenty of activities planned for guests. All the beds have their own light and outlet which is convenient, and the shower is amazing! The building looks nice and clean.

Disliked: Unfortunately the WiFi connection does not reach up to the rooms, for me this is a major let down. Also, the dorms get really (really) hot, and there is no aircon, fan, or any way of cooling the room down. This hostel would be perfect if they could just put up a few more routers for the internet and a few fans or maybe aircon in the rooms.
