A friend and I are currently interrailing and this hostel was for me, all we needed.
Staff- The staff are very helpful and know the area very well. They called cabs for us when needed which took about 2 minutes to get to us.

It was my first stay in a hostel, but from this I've changed my whole view.
6 of us went, so we had our own private room. We even had our own shower and toilet.
Overall it was clean, well kept and fairly good value...More

Clean and tidy. But that's it. The Windows in the room don't open very much so it is very hot. The bar is more expensive than the city centre and it is very far out. The toilets and showers flood quite a lot which is...More

No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

I stayed there for two nights and mostly it felt that there were young adults living there and sometimes families, but with grown up children. I would still stay that there should not be a problem with young kids staying... More
