Perfect location 4er room is cozy Nice tenant Close to supermarkets
Hot shower is impossible
I liked the location, it's a calm neighborhood with a few really good cafes nearby. It was quiet during the night. Chill zone is nice and you can sit there. Hot water in the shower was nice.
Our room was not cleaned when we arrived. There's no 24/7 reception, so our keys were left for us to pick up, and when we opened the door - there was bottles and bed from previous people. I called the manager and it was fixed pretty quickly, they also returned our money for the bed as compensation. The twin room has a window to the backyard - to the dumpsters and bikes parking. From time to time there was someone and it was not comfortable as it's super easy to look over to the window.
Lovely small hostel (but rooms are also available)! Clean and spacious dorms, with a huge personal space and big safe for an affordable price, wonderful! Berliner design and the owner is super friendly and give top advices ! I recommend 100%
This was the most spacious dormitories I had ever seen, there's enough space for 5 bunk beds, yet there were 3. you also get a large closet. Everything is very clean as well. Location is fine, walking distance to keuzberg, one metro ride to the city center.
the kitchen could be better equipped - yet it's understood for such a tiny hostel.
I stayed one week in this hostel - in the 6 person dorm room. The location in Kreuzberg is fine, it's no far from the metro station and some bars. The checkin window is small and there is not reception. I checked in with a friend of the owner. Later I met the owner he's friendly. However, this is not an 8.6 hostel, I stayed in more than 100 hostels last year. I will elaborate further in the rest of my review.
This is not a 8.6 hostel. My conclusion is a 5.8 - I explain you why, and I'm surprised why I am one of the few who mention these points in their reviews. I spoke with several other guests while I was there and they think the same. 1) Mixed room 6 people existed was not in the photo. Instead of separate beds side by side as you on the booking.com photo's is not representing the reality. The 6 person drom room consists of 6 beds on 2 floors. Partly screened with curtains. 2) The locker of the person above me is in my private area. This means that he or she must regularly join in order to access private items. Very annoying for both of them. 3) In the description and conditions I have not been able to find that 3 euros had to be paid for linen or that bed linen should be brought along. As you can see I have stayed in many hostels but I have never experienced this. The bottom sheet or molton is also very dirty. 4) There are two showers. One has lukewarm water, which indicates a too low hot water supply. This is even dangerous in the context of legionella! Shower is warmer, needs to be turned on every 10 seconds and spayed in the bathroom. Partly because of this black mold develops on the walls. Black fungus is very unhealthy. 5) Basic things are missing, there are no towels, not even to dry your hands. The kitchen is suitable for one person and only has a separate heating element. Not worthy of a hostel. 6) Guest in a private room must walk through the hostel to get there. This causes the necessary inconvenience. 7) Beds are old or of cheapest wood which makes it creaky on all sides. When my neighbor turns around, I hear that and vice versa. Even the sound from my own bed is annoying to hear. The built-in second floor also makes a lot of noise! Moreover, I could have estimated this if the photos had been correct and complete.
