Perfect!
Great place! Super central and very clean with all you could need in a hostel.

6/10 Good

It was very nice to get to know everyone in my room, which made for easy friends when you're travelling solo. However, as a light sleeper, I struggled to sleep with 7 other people in the room and bed that squeal whenever someone moves. The staff was incredible, and the location cannot be beat. If you're a good sleeper, I would probably recommend this hostel.

Booked for two people but they only received a booking for one person, and after clearing it up during check in they tried to charge me again, however, at least the staff were friendly and made it work. The bathrooms were pretty dirty but the rooms were fine.

6/10 Good

Not bad, but pricy for a hostel
It was expensive for a hostel. I think the area is more expensive (Berlin downtown) and I booked short notice, but I feel like it was over priced compared to other areas of Germany and for it being a hostel. Otherwise it was a bed for a night, but do not expect any more than that. They also require a deposit to be put down for the key cards, which I found odd. In all, it was good for the night, but I would be alot happier if it was the typical hostel price. I felt like I was paying for a hotel and got a bare bones hostel.
