Quiet, affordable, great helpful staff, kitchen facilities available.
In need of refurbishment (bit stinking room).already improvemets in progress.
Excellent location, very quiet room, staff is really nice and chill. I felt like home. We (me and my bf) stayed 3 nights in 4 bedroom(but we were alone in room with no other People). We shared bathroom with other 2 People, and it was always empty so shared bathroom was no problem at all. Clean facilities, sheets, no bad smell in the room. We were on 4th floor, with no elevator, so that can be tricky if you have luggage. We didnt. Neighborhood is excellent, plenty of nice restauramts, caffes ,bars... To sum up, im pleasently suprised with value for money. Definitely will stay here again if i come to Berlin.
The ONLY bad thing (but quite important when you travel!) were terrible uncomfortable beds. Bad matress, and squeaky bed. If you move during the night you could wake up whole room. My whole back hurt from that bed, and didnt slept well at all. Please change beds!
The staff was super friendly and did their best to help in all situations! They took their time to have a chat out off the usual hostel stuff and genuinely cared for their guests well-being.
The power socket and light situation in the dorms :) But that's really all!
Initial impressions from the outside are not that great, but don't let that colour your judgment. This is a comfortable hostel, with good facilities. It's got good connections to public transportation, and nice pubs and restaurants within walking distance. In particular, the laundry service was quick and cheap.
Generally, the place would benefit from an update, particularly the bathrooms which were clean but obviously dated. Not really a problem, but what we saw as character may disappoint others.
The staffs are really friendly
Would be better if there’s wifi in the room
