Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2017

The hostel has a great design in rooms, reception, and dining room, with a nice living room where you can meet people. The rooms are big, clean and well equipped. The staff is very friendly and kind. It has a small brewery in the basement where you can have some drinks. The only negative point is that the girl's toilet in the section where we were staying was out of service and it was not fixed during the 4 days of our stay.

Room Tip: For luggage storage they have a room with lockers for 4 euros a day

The exterior and the reception area sets you up for a fall as it's quirky and this just isn't carried through the whole hostel.

We stayed in a private double room. Bed was comfy and the hostel wasn't noisy at all but there was no AC just a dusty fan that didn't do much. I'm sure this isn't an issue if you're visiting in February but it was a bit of a nightmare when visiting in August.

We are currently on an interail trip and have deliberately booked private rooms and in every place we have also had a private bathroom. In this hostel we had to share a bathroom which was fine but we weren't aware of this until we arrived so if you're wanting private room with bathroom don't stay here.

The bed was comfy and the bed was a good size.

Sandwiches in the cafe were nice and they do all you can eat breakfast for €5. I think if you're wanting the dorm experience definitely stay here but if you're travelling in a couple as we are there's probably better hostels you can stay in.

+big rooms
+shower area
+5 euro breakfast

-no common area to meet people, play beer pong/foosball/pool etc
-big rooms are almost a disadvantage, I would NOT recommend staying in the 8 person if you want ANY sleep
-mattress parts of it I thought I was going to fall through, very springy and thin

With a group of friends this is probably a good place to stay, travelling solo I would look somewhere closer to Alexanderplatz with a better common area

The hostel was lovely to stay on whilst on trip to berlin, the rooms were well sized for our group and the service was good, the tours offered from the hotel was also great. The coffe bar was good for breakfast with plenty to choose from the options available.

Such a modern hostel, feels like a hotel. Our room was comfortable with a safe - shared showers and bathrooms were modern and clean. The cafe downstairs is very trendy with a simple but tasty breakfast. We took the tour that was advertised in the hotel and it was brilliant,walking around the city.

Best part was the bar downstairs where they have their own beers brewed on site. Great place to start a night out.

Highly recommend.
