Good location, nice staff (big hands to the very friendly Frau Nina), a great place to stay even for more mature travellers. I was offered a welcome coffee and plenty of time to check in, getting to know the space. Not rush at all, meaning, they are not treating things as mere "transaction". If to pick up one thing I...

Considering Grand Hostel Berlin was the first hostel I've ever stayed in, I suspect I might have gotten the wrong impression about hostels as a whole. Some of my comrades, being more experienced travellers than myself, pointed out that their experience with hostels included derelict dorms and nightmarish hygiene. Well, with its impeccably maintained olden-style building and respective atmosphere, pitch-perfect...

Stayed here for just two nights in between apartment moves in Berlin. Honestly -- honestly -- was tempted to tell the people renting to me that I would just stay at this hostel until I went home later in the month. It was that comfortable and convenient. Berlin doesn't have any one central area, but this hostel is quite conveniently...

I stayed at the hostel for 5 nights. The interior is very nice and beautiful, everything is very clean and the location is also good. However, I was missing a possibility to use kitchen-like area if I happened to want to eat my own food somewhere other than my dorm room. Also there was no wifi for the entire time...

One of the most impressive hostels I have ever been to.Exceptionally helpful and efficient polyglottal staff, welcome free tea/coffee/beer (!) drink to a new guest, most comfortable beds in a luxuriously spacious dormitory, smart interior ideas with attention to little cute details - they seem to walk an extra mile for you to feel pampered! Loved the bar with happy...

As an uncertain-solo-female traveler, I thought Grand Hostel was a perfect choice. The staff was super helpful as soon I arrived, and took some time to tell me what to check out and how to get to where I wanted to go. Everything was very clean, and I didn't feel unsafe whatsoever. It was also located very close to a...

This is an excellent hostel, you couldn't ask for better staff, a good and secure room locked and unlocked by keycode, excellent storage space, right next to public transport with a great atmosphere, but sometimes it's the small things that can leave a slight negative sheen on the experience. Recent reviews claimed that the wireless internet has been intermittent, I'd...

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
