Score from 2226 reviews Very good
- position is great, my room and the bathroom were really clean and the staff is nice
- wifi is not the best, stairs smelled really bad
It's good because it's right next to a metro stop and there are trams running up and down just outside of the hostel. Alexanderplatz is not far away either. Lovely bar and they served up a good buffet for breakfast.
The wifi was temperamental so when you're trying to book and plan stuff in between days it's a bit of a nightmare.
The staff were helpful and friendly and the beds were comfortable. It's a short walk or U-bahn ride to Alexanderplatz.
My room overlooked a busy road so if the windows were openly it was really, really noisy but if the windows were closed there was no ventilation so it got really warm. Try to get a room overlooking the internal courtyard.
The staff; Blowdrier, locks and all sorts of thing available in reception; Breakfast is great value; Bar makes the best cosmopolitan Ive had in a long time...
The noise, oh the noise. The rooms facing the street have to deal with loud drunks, buses and all kinds of noise (including a very offensive crazy lady that visits every other night) pretty much 24/7.
Really fun hostel, lots of good and young people around!
Noisy but that is to be expected
Pretty much everything
Trams were a bit loud, but that's berlin
great place for young people and backpackers. great stuff, location, good maintanence of facilities. very pretty decoration.
bed is to soft, doors are heavy and constantly being slamed and making a lot of noise.
the crew are very helpful. If you are in the bar, and they don't have change, you can change the money on the box.
the bathroom have a strange odor, but it's fine tho.
The hostel itself is a really cool place to stay, Berlin is a big place and the location is great especially to hire bikes or use the metro! It's like a bar/restaurant as well so it's always lively and is a great place to meet people! Would definitely consider going back.
The only irritating thing was that you needed to log into the wifi each time you wanted to use it
Location location location Very liberal friendly city Hipster community Many boutique shops
Weather changes every minute, dress warm.
Staff were super friendly, facilities were clean, place seemed to be well organized
There was no air conditioning
Clean, good staff, next to metro, nice bar downstairs
More like a hotel than a hostel, hard to meet other travellers due to size, not a great common area, no wifi in rooms
Super helpfully staff
Noisy in the evening with slamming doors to the nearby toilet. Overpriced for what it was.
location, great bar and cafe. very nice decoration to rooms, lobby etc. nice stuff and nice guests. i am satisfied with my choise- if choosing a hoStel in berlin and not a hotel- circus is a great choise.
bed and pillows not to comfortable, bethrooms could and should be cleand (shared facilities)more often during the day. the worst thing- the doors are very heavy and thick, therfore, you are constantly hearing dorrs being slamed- very enoying...
I've loved the design of this place, its dedicated staff and the cool atmosphere. The place is super clean and ideally located in the downtown of Berlin. I will definitely come back to this hostel next time !
Fun but stylish decor, very clean and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Within walking distance to all the sights I wanted to visit. I will return to this hostel if I ever go back to Berlin and will recommend it to my friends.
From the moment we first arrived it was clear that the staff really wanted to help us and make us feel welcome. We were given a free city and travel map, and all of our questions were answered. The location is full of great bars and restaurants (go to B-flat) but there's a tube station right outside to easily take you anywhere else. I'm not surprised that this got so many good reviews!
With all the trams and late night bars it does get a bit noisy but if the window is closed it's completely fine. Every time your device reconnects to the hostel wifi you have to manually reconnect (albeit this is EXTREMELY picky.)
lovely facilities: room, shower room& toilet and lobby! Friendly and helpful staffs. We stayed in 4 beds dorm and it's big and comfortble. near market and post office, a Thai restaurant near by is must-visit one.
the wifi will be automatically disconnect if you don't use it continually.
Great staff, good breakfast for 5 euros, rooms were clean, showers were hot.
Needed a better bar or common room but they do work within a tight space
There are free trips on Tuesdays with different historical themes The 5 euro all you can eat breakfast is great value and great choice The staff were really friendly and helpful and had lots of tips and info they could give you. Lockers in luggage room meant you could lock your bags in a locker then lock the room behind you - very secure. The bar and day/evening meals were reasonably priced. Location was great, right next to the U-Bahn station. Can rent bikes and train day passes from the hostel
WIFI connection was a bit dodgy at times.
I stayed for one night in an apartment with room, living room, kitchen, bathroom and balcony, in the 5th floor. The apartment was cozy, functional and clean. The WiFi was working fine. There was a safe in the room and I felt very secure, 'cause we have to use a card to get access even to the lift and the halls of each floor. The staff was very nice and attentive. Really great hostel! I wish I could stay there for more time.
It was really hot that day and there was no sheet in the bed, just a thick blanket. There was no air conditioner too, just a small fan. But nothing serious to me. I really enjoyed my brief time there and would come back if I could.
The location was great - really close to all the sights! The walking tour met in the lobby and it was a great way to meet other travelers staying nearby. The food was great - breakfast and dinner. Sasha, the bartender, was great and gave us some tips on where to eat and go out.
There wasn't any common area besides the lobby - so it was hard to meet people.
Metro a few steps out the door
