3rd time there...I will always go back, everything is excellent.
- Clean room and bathfacilities. - Friendly staff
Extremely clean, quiet, spacious, comfortable bed
The rooms were comfortable and the location is great - right next to a lovely square with fountain and a couple of cafes.
I didn't meet the owners the whole time! They left messages on how to pick up keys which actually were quite clear. They are contactable if anything went wrong.
This is the 2nd time I have stayed in this hostel and they only hold the title hostel due to shared bathroom facilities, all other aspects of this operation is at hotel standard. This place is spotless, corridor, kitchen, rooms and especially the shared bathrooms. There are plenty of them too so hardly ever a need to wait to be able to use one. They place an incredible amount of trust in you with regards to helping yourself to tea and coffee and other bits in the kitchen (there is a box to put the correct change for whatever you take) and they seem to be cleaning all the time to ensure this is hostel is far cleaner then I have ever managed to get my own home. It simply is stunning value for money and ideal location to be able to enjoy the nightlife and shopping.
The place was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful when I needed them. The location is good for gay men on the older side or of you are into leather and other fetishes. The parties for the younger crowds are a bit further away.
Nothing bad to say. For the very good price the return was very good.
Very near to bus stop Cleanliness
Lack of option for a private bathroom or at least a toilet.
Banana's Guest house is ideally located for gay tourists. Your privacy is guaranteed and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I really must recommend this establishment to gay tourists to Berlin. Thank you to Josef and Kurt and staff.
Well located, a U-train station right behind the place; quiet even though its in front of a primary school. Well kept, clean and for the price you can't beat it. A regular hostel 6 beds per room, a single bed charges the same than my own room. There are 10 rooms totals and it has 4 full bathrooms.. 2 rooms per bathroom, not bad at all. A block from the gay hood and 5-6 train stops from downtown. Extremely happy I stayed there.
If you are sensitive to notice, the rooms facing the street will get some noice from kids getting to the school and parents dropping them around 7am and on. Other than that, the guesthouse is in a quiet neighborhood street.
good location,in the gay zone of berlin.next to a subway station.well-equipped and well-decorated.the shampoo in the bathing room is new and big-brand.the bathroom and toilet is quite clean.there is a hall or u can call it a bar in the hostel.the wifi signal is strong.and the host is friendly and helpful. i wish more and more guest can choose this hostel.
There's so much I like about this place I feel I could write a book. But here's just a few points- The friendliness and warmth of the staff and the owners Kurt and Josef. The cleanliness of the facilities. This I think tends to rub off on the customers as I have been here many times before and have never experienced anyone being disrespectful to the property. You can enter and leave the building at any time in the day or night yet I have never had my sleep interrupted by noise from others. The location is ideal. Within 5 minutes walking distance of all the local pubs, clubs and restaurants, 10 minutes walk to department store KaDeWe and right beside a metro station, you really couldn't ask for a better location. Good cooking facilities also for those who don't want to eat out. Free wi-fi connection.
Some have said that the towels they provide are too small. This is quite possibly true but since they provide you with two it has never really presented a problem for me
Quiet neighborhood = comfy sleep, clean place and very friendly owner/staff.
little bit hard to locate
The calm, the value, the spotlessness, the welcome.
Not a damn thing.
Great location, clean and big enough space for single traveler .
Nothing to think of dislike .
Hosts were very friendly and helpful with tips on what to see and do in Berlin. Location is central and quiet, close to great choice of restaurants, bars and clubs. Incredibly clean and comfortable.
- Very good location - 2 min to U-Bahn - Very quiet - Very good solo rooms - Very clean - Good Facilities - restaurants around are great (especially Potemkin, higly recommended for breakfasts and dinners) - 4 bathrooms for 10 rooms - great decision!
- Some gays around ^_^ - Can't find any supermarkts around that work later than 10 p.m.
Had so much fun. Great place great location. Would love to be back and stay for awhile
Location was excellent near everything,very secure quiet area.Home from home.Excellent bathrooms great showers very clean.
Having to go home after a nice stay
Just can't beat the price for what you get. Large room, excellent Wifi, extremely clean, friendly staff. Although shared bath, completely not an issue as 4 large bathrooms for only 10 rooms. So bathrooms always available. When back in Berlin would stay hear in a heartbeat.
Everything was perfect!
Very good location to trains, restaurants, Laundromat, food markets, stores, and gay bars. The neighborhood has a nice quiet, picturesque feel and look to it. The owners were easy to contact and quick with any needed info/response and were very very helpful and attentive. The bathrooms were plentiful and spotless. Very clean facility.
Nothing comes to mind.
I have booked many stays with booking.com but never felt compared to leave a comment...until now. I was not expecting much from Bananas as I got a room exceptionally cheaply and noted there was no personal bathroom - but as this was a Bank Holiday weekend I took it as everywhere else was ridiculously expensive. From the outside of the building I did not know what to expect as it did not look like a guesthouse, but I was blown away when shown my room and the facilities by the wonderfully friendly, always smiling staff member. My double room was the equivalent to a four star hotel (at least!) - spacious, modern, gleaming clean, all mod cons... And I needn't have been a bit dubious about sharing any of the many fully equipped and spacious bathrooms which are literally cleaned around the clock. Spotless! And the self service kitchen area was a great communal area to meet fellow travellers. I have already brought my next Berlin trip forward simply because I can't wait to stay at this amazing guesthouse again. Fantastic!
You would not have a lie about the wonderful stay that lies within when approaching the building for the first time. But hey, I guess that's where the element of surprise and overwhelmingly contentedness lies. A real home from home in fact!!
Very serviceoriented and friendly staff. Very clean everythere Kitchen/lounge area created a familiar atmosfere Nice Room with perfect bed Very good value for money
The most important thing for me when it comes to a hotel accommodation is its location and that I get a good night's sleep. Bananas Berlin gives you both. The rooms are well soundproofed and beds comfy. It is close to the subway (1 min walk) and is close to all the gays nightlife. Guest house free wi-fi worked perfectly.
I had a great stay. The rooms are pretty basic, but the place is very clean and extremely well maintained. And with four fully equipped bathrooms for just ten guestrooms, the experience of staying there is far more like being at a small hotel than a hostel. The guesthouse has no formal reception area, which worried me a little when I was booking because I had this vision of having to stand there and wait for somebody to come over and let me into the place after a long and exhausting day of travel. But sure enough, somebody was there waiting for me when I arrived, and checking out couldn't have been simpler. For the money, it simply can't be beat, especially for travelers who want to be within easy walking distance of much of what Berlin has to offer in the way of gay life nightlife.
