The breakfast is great.
They charge you 2€ extra that is not included, and they say that it's a "special city tax". Never heard about it.
The location of the hostel is a blessing and curse: the good news is that it is located super close the hbf which makes for the perfect spot for a quick 1 night stay. The staff was helpful and kind. The breakfast was better than most 'included breakfast' at this price point with variety of cheeses, meats, breads, cereal and jam. Check out at 12 was perfect for sleeping in.
The location of the hostel was in the hostel of one of the most destitute areas I’ve seen in Germany: full of crack-heads, brothels, and countless transient men prowling around. Completely caught me off guard as I was searching for the entrance. The linens used on the blanket are absolutely of the lowest quality, stiff as a board. There was limited kitchenware and no forks available in the cooking area. Which takes me to thing that kind of shocked me the most: the large storage lockers available for rent (all downstairs in the cooking area) are old dog cages??? Looked absolutely unprofessional and I cannot believe the hostel manager is ok with such a presentation..
Paying for free 6-8 drinks
Clean Hostel in the red light district which is not ideal but it was safe and really good for a train connection and close to the city centre
Great facilities, bar open 24 hours which was great for sitting around having a few quiet drinks & meeting other travellers. Staff were awesome
It is the red light district so it’s kind of expected, but just a bit more full on than expected..The drugs & shady dealers were everywhere, sloppy Heroin addicts everywhere, even pissing on scooters & front window of the hostel during the night. A man smoking a crack pipe at the front door of the hostel.. I didn’t mind it that much but made my partner feel very comfortable.. she didnt want to smoke out the front due to people asking for money, cigarettes or to buy drugs or just harassing her in general. Like I said, it didn’t really bother me & there’s not much the hostel can really do about it.. just maybe for solo female travellers - find a bit of a nicer area. If you’re not fussed, great hostel for a short stay
