I was there two years ago because I moved to Berlin to study and my first 12 days I slept there looking for a flat.
I was in a shared room with 12 people more. On weekends its was a little bit noise in the...More
The hostel is very nice, don't be let down. But the actual sleeping is quite uncomfortable. For me, particularly, traveling alone, that meant staying in a four-bed room with strangers (cause I didn't actually got to see or know them at all) that came in...More
The best is the location. Otherwise the hostel is too fixed on cramping people together in the cheapest way possible. Don't let yourself be mislead by the nice interior and design shown on the website's fotos.
The hostel has not wasted a thought on creating...More
I stayed here for a week this summer nearing the end of my summer europe trip and I'm happy it's the hostel I chose. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was of a good quality and worth the price (which was a good...More
Full of 'eurotrip' loud American, no respect for anybody else. Rude staff who were not helpful and were very rude when I asked to book another night. Unhelpful for tourist and local info, they acted very suspicious of their customers after something went missing in...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
