Me and my friend stayed there only 2 night, but we enjoyed the atmosphere. First of all they have really good prices (very cheap) also, they have a good deal for breakfast (only 3€), it was clean and very friendly.

Really good place to stay. Was a bit hard to find, but so close to so many bars and restaurants. 5 minute walk to Berlin Wall, and 5 minute walk to warshauer station. All the staff were really nice and helpful. The bar/restaurant area was really good and met loads of people from just sitting there. Private room was great,...

Nice rooms. What youd expect from a hostel. Good bar open 22h per day. The best buffet breakfast for 3€. Close to the S Bahn. The bathing water isnt very hot. Helpful staff. Good atmosphere. Gay friendly.

Such a cool hostel with friendly, helpful and very stylish staff who always play excellent music. Our room was quiet with big comfortable bed and nice graffiti across the whole wall. What I loved the most was the chance of being able to have all you can eat breakfast till 12pm for only 3€! Definitely coming back to Sunflower hostel!

We stayed at Sunflower for 3 nights. In a double bed room. It wasn't what we expected,but it wasn't bad. The auto-sell machine doesn't work and I recommend not to try it, unless you want to waste your money.

Not so well localised, but the facilities are pretty good, and the public transport does the trick. The atmosphere is really good in the bar and the beds are pretty isolated from it, so you get a very silent room. The breakfast is not included and I think could improve. Also the neighbourhood is not the best, but it's safe...

There were 5 of us, so my friends and I received our own 5 person dorm room, with it's own sink and shower. Very clean toilet room shared by the whole floor. Excellent service. Comfy beds!

Facilities were ok; washing machine and dryer (dryer took AGES to dry clothes and shrunk most, washing machine water was far too hot & dye ran), cheap breakfast at 3e each (we didn't opt for this as it was just continental), rooms were reasonably comfortable but a little cold at night, bathrooms weren't the cleanest with one of the ladies...

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
